Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 6:52

_ _ For they considered not the miracle of the loaves; for their heart was hardened — What a singular statement! The meaning seems to be that if they had but “considered [reflected upon] the miracle of the loaves,” wrought but a few hours before, they would have wondered at nothing which He might do within the whole circle of power and grace.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 6:45-56.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 6:52

Their heart was hardened — And yet they were not reprobates. It means only, they were slow and dull of apprehension.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Mark 6:52

For they (z) considered not [the miracle] of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

(z) Either they did not perceive, or had not well considered that miracle of the five loaves, to the point that the virtue of Christ was just as strange to them as if they had not been present at that miracle which was done just a little before.
