Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 8:4

_ _ From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness? — Though the question here is the same as when He fed the five thousand, they evidently now meant no more by it than that they had not the means of feeding the multitude; modestly leaving the Lord to decide what was to be done. And this will the more appear from His not now trying them, as before, by saying, “They need not depart, give ye them to eat”; but simply asking what they had, and then giving His directions.
