John Gills Exposition of the Bible Commentary

Verse 46 (Mark 6:46)

And when he had sent them away ,.... Either his disciples, or rather the multitude:

he departed into a mountain to pray : after his disciples were gone, and he had dismissed the people, he went from the desert where he had been, up into a mountain; being a retired place, to spend some time in private prayer to God; See Gill on Matthew 14:23 .
