American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There are some here of them that stand [by], who shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God come with power. 1 And he said to them, "I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power."
2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them; 2 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them.
3 and his garments became glistering, exceeding white, so as no fuller on earth can whiten them. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them.
4 And there appeared unto them Elijah with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.
5 And Peter answereth and saith to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. 5 Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."
6 For he knew not what to answer; for they became sore afraid. 6 (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)
7 And there came a cloud overshadowing them: and there came a voice out of the cloud, This is my beloved Son: hear ye him. 7 Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!"
8 And suddenly looking round about, they saw no one any more, save Jesus only with themselves. 8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.
9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, save when the Son of man should have risen again from the dead. 9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
10 And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the rising again from the dead should mean. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what "rising from the dead" meant.
11 And they asked him, saying, [How is it] that the scribes say that Elijah must first come? 11 And they asked him, "Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
12 And he said unto them, Elijah indeed cometh first, and restoreth all things: and how is it written of the Son of man, that he should suffer many things and be set at nought? 12 Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah does come first, and restores all things. Why then is it written that the Son of Man must suffer much and be rejected?
13 But I say unto you, that Elijah is come, and they have also done unto him whatsoever they would, even as it is written of him. 13 But I tell you, Elijah has come, and they have done to him everything they wished, just as it is written about him."
14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great multitude about them, and scribes questioning with them. 14 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them.
15 And straightway all the multitude, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.
16 And he asked them, What question ye with them? 16 "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.
17 And one of the multitude answered him, Teacher, I brought unto thee my son, who hath a dumb spirit; 17 A man in the crowd answered, "Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech.
18 and wheresoever it taketh him, it dasheth him down: and he foameth, and grindeth his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast it out; and they were not able. 18 Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not."
19 And he answereth them and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him unto me. 19 "O unbelieving generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me."
20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him grievously; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 20 So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.
21 And he asked his father, How long time is it since this hath come unto him? And he said, From a child. 21 Jesus asked the boy's father, "How long has he been like this?" "From childhood," he answered.
22 And oft-times it hath cast him both into the fire and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. 22 "It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us."
23 And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst! All things are possible to him that believeth. 23 " 'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
24 Straightway the father of the child cried out, and said, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief !"
25 And when Jesus saw that a multitude came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. "You deaf and mute spirit," he said, "I command you, come out of him and never enter him again."
26 And having cried out, and torn him much, he came out: and [the boy] became as one dead; insomuch that the more part said, He is dead. 26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, "He's dead."
27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and raised him up; and he arose. 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, [How is it] that we could not cast it out? 28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
29 And he said unto them, This kind can come out by nothing, save by prayer. 29 He replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer. "
30 And they went forth from thence, and passed through Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it. 30 They left that place and passed through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know where they were,
31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered up into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he shall rise again. 31 because he was teaching his disciples. He said to them, "The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise."
32 But they understood not the saying, and were afraid to ask him. 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.
33 And they came to Capernaum: and when he was in the house he asked them, What were ye reasoning on the way? 33 They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the road?"
34 But they held their peace: for they had disputed one with another on the way, who [was] the greatest. 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35 And he sat down, and called the twelve; and he saith unto them, If any man would be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all. 35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."
36 And he took a little child, and set him in the midst of them: and taking him in his arms, he said unto them, 36 He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them,
37 Whosoever shall receive one of such little children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me. 37 "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."
38 John said unto him, Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in thy name; and we forbade him, because he followed not us. 38 "Teacher," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us."
39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man who shall do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. 39 "Do not stop him," Jesus said. "No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me,
40 For he that is not against us is for us. 40 for whoever is not against us is for us.
41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink, because ye are Christ's, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. 41 I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.
42 And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones that believe on me to stumble, it were better for him if a great millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 42 "And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck.
43 And if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire. 43 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out.
44 [where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.] 44 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell.
45 And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy two feet to be cast into hell. 45 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell,
46 [where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.] 46 where " 'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'
47 And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell; 47 Everyone will be salted with fire.
48 where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 48 "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other."
49 For every one shall be salted with fire. 49
50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost its saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace one with another. 50
