And Jesus was saying to them, "1Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standingherewho will not tastedeathuntil they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power."22Sixdayslater, Jesustook with Him 3Peter and aJames and John, and brought them up on a highmountain by themselves . And He was transfiguredbefore them;
and 4His garmentsbecameradiant and exceedinglywhite, as nolaunderer on earthcanwhiten them.
4Elijahappeared to them along with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus.
5Petersaid to Jesus, "5Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; 6let us makethreebtabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
For he did not knowwhat to answer; for they becameterrified.
7Then a cloudcformed, overshadowing them, and 7a voicedcame out of the cloud, "8This is My belovedSon, elisten to Him!"
8All at once they lookedaround and sawnoone with them anymore, exceptJesusalone.
99As they were comingdown from the mountain, He 10gave them orders not to relate to anyonewhat they had seen, funtil the Son of Manrose from the dead.
They gseized upon hthat statement, discussing with oneanotheriwhatrising from the deadmeant.
They asked Him, saying, "Why is it that the scribessay that 11Elijahmustcomefirst?"
And He said to them, "Elijah does firstcome and restoreallthings. And yet how is it written of 12the Son of Man that 13He will suffermanythings and be treated with contempt?13"But I say to you that Elijah has jindeedcome, and they did to him whatever they wished, just as it is written of him."
