And he said to all, "If anyone would come after me, let him 1deny himself and 2take up his cross 3daily and follow me.24For 4whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.255For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?26For 6whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed 7when he comes in 8his glory and the glory of the Father and of 9the holy angels.27But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not 10taste death 11until they see the kingdom of God."
2812Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him 13Peter and John and James and 14went up on the mountain to pray.
And as he was praying, the appearance of his face was 15altered, and 16his clothing became dazzling white.
And behold, two men were talking with him, Moses and Elijah,
who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure,a which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.
Now Peter and those who were with him 17were heavy with sleep, but when they became fully awake 18they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him.
And as the men were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is good that we are here. Let us make three 19tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah"--20not knowing what he said.
