4And there appeared unto themEliaswithMoses:and they weretalking with Jesus.5AndPeteranswered and said to Jesus,Master, it isgood for us to behere:and let us makethreetabernacles;one for thee,andone for Moses,andone for Elias.6For he wistnotwhat to say ; for they were soreafraid.7And there was a cloud that overshadowedthem:and a voicecame out of the cloud,saying , ThisismybelovedSon:hearhim.8Andsuddenly, when they had looked round about , they saw no man any more,saveJesusonlywiththemselves.9And as they came downfrom the mountain, he chargedthemthat they should tell no man what things they had seen , tilltheSon of man were risenfrom the dead.10And they kept that sayingwiththemselves, questioning one with anotherwhat the risingfrom the dead should mean .
11And they askedhim,saying , Whysay the scribesthatEliasmustfirstcome ?
12And he answered and toldthem,Eliasverilycomethfirst, and restoreth all things;andhow it is writtenof the Son of man,that he must suffer many things,and be set at nought .13But I say unto you,ThatEliasisindeedcome , and they have done unto himwhatsoever they listed , as it is writtenofhim.14And when he cameto his disciples, he saw a greatmultitudeaboutthem,and the scribesquestioning with them.15Andstraightwayall the people, when they beheldhim, were greatly amazed , and running to him salutedhim.16And he asked the scribes,What question yewiththem ?17Andoneof the multitudeanswered and said , Master, I have broughtuntotheemyson, which hath a dumbspirit;18Andwheresoeverhetakethhim, he tearethahim:and he foameth , andgnasheth with histeeth,and pineth away : and I spake to thydisciplesthat they should casthimout ; and they couldnot.19

21And he askedhisfather,How long is itagosincethiscame unto him?And he said , Of a child.22Andofttimes it hath casthimintothefire,andinto the waters,todestroyhim:butif thou canst do any thing, have compassiononus, and helpus.23Jesussaid unto him,If thou canstbelieve , all things are possible to him that believeth .24Andstraightway the father of the child cried out , and saidwithtears,Lord, I believe ; help thoumineunbelief.25WhenJesussawthat the people came running together , he rebuked the foulspirit,saying unto him,Thou dumbanddeafspirit,Ichargethee,come out ofhim,andenter no moreintohim.26And the spirit cried , andrenthimsore, and came out of him : and he wasas one dead;insomuchthatmanysaid , He is dead .
27ButJesustookhim by the hand, and liftedhimup ; and he arose .
28And when he was comeinto the house,hisdisciplesaskedhimprivately , Whycouldnotwecasthimout ?
29And he said unto them,Thiskindcan come forthbynothing,butbyprayerandfasting.30And they departedthence, and passedthroughGalilee;and he wouldnotthat any man should know it.
31For he taughthisdisciples,andsaid unto them , The Son of man is deliveredinto the hands of men,and they shall killhim;and after that he is killed , he shall rise the thirdday.32But they understood not that saying,and were afraid to askhim.33And he cametoCapernaum:andbeingin the house he askedthem,What was it that ye disputedamongyourselvesby the way?34But they held their peace : forby the way they had disputedamongthemselves,who should be the greatest.35And he sat down , and called the twelve,andsaith unto them,If any mandesire to befirst, the same shall belast of all,andservant of all.36And he took a child, and sethimin the midst of them:and when he had takenhim in his arms , he said unto them,37Whosoevershallreceiveone of suchchildreninmyname,receivethme:andwhosoevershallreceiveme,receivethnotme,but him that sentme.38AndJohnansweredhim,saying , Master, we sawone casting outdevils in thyname,and he followethnotus:and we forbadhim,because he followethnotus.39ButJesussaid , Forbidhimnot:for there is no manwhich shall do a miracleinmyname,thatcanlightly speak evil of me.40For he thatisnotagainstusisonourpart.41Forwhosoevershallgiveyou a cup of water to drinkinmyname,because ye belong to Christ,verily I say unto you, he shallnotlosehisreward.42Andwhosoevershalloffendone of these little ones that believeinme, it isbetterforhimthat a millstonewerehangedabouthisneck,and he were castinto the sea.43Andifthyhandoffendbthee,cutitoff : it isbetter for thee to enterintolifemaimed,thanhavingtwohands to gointohell,into the fire that never shall be quenched:44Wheretheirwormdiethnot,and the fireisnotquenched .45Andifthyfootoffendcthee,cutitoff : it isbetter for thee to enterhaltintolife,thanhavingtwofeet to be castintohell,into the fire that never shall be quenched:46Wheretheirwormdiethnot,and the fireisnotquenched .47Andifthineeyeoffenddthee,pluckitout : it isbetter for thee to enterinto the kingdom of God with one eye,thanhavingtwoeyes to be castintohellfire:48Wheretheirwormdiethnot,and the fireisnotquenched .49For every one shall be salted with fire,andeverysacrifice shall be salted with salt.50Salt is good:butif the salt have lost his saltness,wherewithwill ye seasonit?Havesaltinyourselves,and have peaceonewithanother.
