Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 8:3

_ _ And if I send them away fasting to their own houses, they will faint by the way — In their eagerness they seem not to have thought of the need of provisions for such a length of time; but the Lord thought of it. In Matthew (Matthew 15:32) it is, “I will not send them away fasting” — or rather, “To send them away fasting I am unwilling.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 8:1-9.

(a) Literally, "they will fall apart", or "be dissolved", for when men faint they tear their muscles.
