(C)Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii[a] would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little.” One of his disciples, (D)Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him, “There is a boy here who has five (E)barley loaves and two fish, but (F)what are they for so many?” 10 Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” (G)Now there was much grass in the place.
