Mt 14:22 Straightway. After satisfying to the full the wants of the multitude. Compare Mr 6:45-56 Joh 6:15-21. Jesus constrained his disciples. They were loath to go without their Master. Yet he wished to be alone. He had come to the "desert place" for retirement; the multitude followed, and sought after the miracle to proclaim him King. His disciples probably sympathized. Hence he sent them, too, away, and stayed to pray and reflect alone. To go before him unto the other side. John says, toward Capernaum (Joh 6:17).
