131Now when Jesuscame into the district of 2CaesareaPhilippi, He was asking His disciples, "Who do peoplesay that 3the Son of Man is?"14
And they said, "Some say 4John the Baptist ; and others, a5Elijah ; but still others, bJeremiah, orone of the prophets."
He said to them, "But who do you say that I am ?"16SimonPeteranswered, "You are c6the Christ, 7the Son of 8the livingGod."
And Jesussaid to him, "Blessed are you, 9SimondBarjona, because10flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Fatherwho is in heaven.18"I alsosay to you that you are e11Peter, and upon thisfrock I will build My church ; and the gates of 12Hades will not overpower it.19"I will give you 13the keys of the kingdom of heaven ; and 14whatever you bind on earthgshall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earthhshall have been loosed in heaven."2015Then He iwarned the disciples that they should tellnoone that He was j16the Christ.
2117From that timekJesusbegan to show His disciples that He mustgo to Jerusalem, and 18suffermanythings from the elders and chiefpriests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the thirdday.
22Petertook Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, "lGodforbid it, Lord ! This shall nevermhappen to You."
But He turned and said to Peter, "Getbehind Me, 19Satan ! You are a stumblingblock to Me; for you are not setting your mind on nGod's interests, but man's."
24ThenJesussaid to His disciples, "Ifanyonewishes to comeafter Me, he must denyhimself, and 20take up his cross and follow Me.25"For 21whoeverwishes to save his olife will lose it; but whoeverloses his plife for My sake will find it.26"For what will it profit a manif he gains the wholeworld and forfeits his soul ? Orwhat will a mangive in exchange for his soul ?27"For the 22Son of Man23is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and 24WILL THENqREPAYEVERYMANACCORDING TO HIS rDEEDS.28"Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standingherewho will not tastedeathuntil they see the 25Son of Man26coming in His kingdom."
