John 6:9

Context
6:9 “Here is a boy who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what good 1  are these for so many people?”

John 6:13

Context
6:13 So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves 2  left over by the people who had eaten.

1 tn Grk “but what are these”; the word “good” is not in the Greek text, but is implied.

2 sn Note that the fish mentioned previously (in John 6:9) are not emphasized here, only the five barley loaves. This is easy to understand, however, because the bread is of primary importance for the author in view of Jesus’ upcoming discourse on the Bread of Life.
