Mark 6.52 (AV)
For they considered not
the miracle of the loaves:
for their heart was hardened
For they failed to consider or understand [the teaching and meaning of the miracle of] the loaves; [in fact] their hearts had grown callous [had become dull and had lost the power of understanding]. [AMP] for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. [ESV] For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened. [KJV] for they had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened. [NIV] They still didn't understand the significance of the miracle of the multiplied loaves, for their hearts were hard and they did not believe. [NLT] For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened. [NKJV]
Some further information
They ought to admire the power of Christ, and to be confirmed hereby in their belief of his being the Son of God: but why all this confusion about it?
It was because they considered not the miracle of the loaves; had they given that its due weight, they would not have been so much surprised at this; for His multiplying the bread was as great an instance of His power as his walking on the water.
They were strangely stupid and unthinking, and their heart was hardened, or else they would not have thought it a thing incredible that Christ should command a calm.
It is for want of a right understanding of Christ’s former works, that we are transported at the thought of his present works, as if there never were the like before.
