And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.24For whosoever would save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.25For what is a man profited, if he gain the whole world, and lose or forfeit his own self?26For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in his own glory, and [the glory] of the Father, and of the holy angels.27But I tell you of a truth, There are some of them that stand here, who shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.28
And it came to pass about eight days after these sayings, that he took with him Peter and John and James, and went up into the mountain to pray.

And behold, there talked with him two men, who were Moses and Elijah;
who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
Now Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: but when they were fully awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.
And it came to pass, as they were parting from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah: not knowing what he said.
