2 "I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Mark 8:2

Commentary on Mark 8:1-10

(Read Mark 8:1-10)

Our Lord Jesus encouraged the meanest to come to him for life and grace. Christ knows and considers our frames. The bounty of Christ is always ready; to show that, he repeated this miracle. His favours are renewed, as our wants and necessities are. And those need not fear want, who have Christ to live upon by faith, and do so with thanksgiving.

3 If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance."
