4Petersaid to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here ; if You wish, 3I will makethreebtabernacleshere, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
While he was stillspeaking, a brightcloudovershadowed them, and behold, 4a voice out of the cloudsaid, "5This is My belovedSon, with whom I amwell-pleased ; listen to Him!"
When the disciplesheard this, they fellcface down to the ground and were terrified.
And Jesuscame to them and touched them and said, "Get up, and 6do not be afraid."8
And lifting up their eyes, they sawnooneexceptJesusHimselfalone.
97As they were comingdown from the mountain, Jesuscommanded them, saying, "8Tell the vision to nooneuntil9the Son of Man has 10risen from the dead."10
And His disciplesasked Him, "Whythen do the scribessay that 11Elijahmustcomefirst ?"
And He answered and said, "Elijah is coming and will restoreallthings ;12but I say to you that Elijahalreadycame, and they did not recognize him, but diddto him whatever they wished. Soalso12the Son of Man is going to suffereat their hands."13Then the disciplesunderstood that He had spoken to them aboutJohn the Baptist.
