People's Bible Notes for Matthew 14:19

Mt 14:19 He commanded the multitude to sit down. We learn from Mark that they sat down in companies (Mr 6:39). On the grass. John says, "there was much grass there" (Joh 6:10). It was in the spring season, in Nisan, "the month of flowers", and the slopes were rich with the spring grass. Looking up to heaven. In prayer we should use such outward gestures as may most fitly serve to express the inward disposition and holy affections of our heart and soul. He blessed. He either gave thanks or asked the Father's blessing on the food.
