    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 15:32

    The miracle recorded here - the feeding of the four thousand - took place on a mountain near the Sea of Galilee. The same account is recorded in Mark 8:1-10. The circumstances of the miracle are so similar to the one recorded in Matthew 14:14-21, as to need little additional explanation.

    Matthew 15:32

    Three days, and have nothing to eat - This is not, perhaps, to be taken literally, but only that during that time they had been deprived of their ordinary or regular food.

    They had had only a very scanty supply, and on the third day even that began to fail.

    Wesley's Notes on Matthew 15:32

    15:32 They continue with me now three days - It was now the third day since they came. Mark 8:1.
