The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he said to them, Verily I say unto you, There are some of those standing here that shall not taste death until they shall have seen the kingdom of God come in 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 takes with [him] Peter and James and John, and takes them up on a high mountain by themselves apart. 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 shining, exceeding white [as snow], such as fuller on earth could not whiten [them]. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them.
4 And there appeared to them Elias 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 answering says to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good that we should be here; and let us make three tabernacles, for thee one, and for Moses one, and for Elias one. 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 he should say, for they were filled with fear. 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 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 having looked around, they no longer saw any one, but Jesus alone with themselves. 8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.
9 And as they descended from the mountain, he charged them that they should relate to no one what they had seen, unless when the Son of man should be risen from among [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 that saying, questioning among themselves, what rising from among [the] dead was. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what "rising from the dead" meant.
11 And they asked him saying, Why do the scribes say that Elias must first have come? 11 And they asked him, "Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
12 And he answering said to them, Elias indeed, having first come, restores all things; and how is it written of the Son of man that he must suffer much, 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 Elias also is come, and they have done to him whatever they would, 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 he came to the disciples he saw a great crowd around them, and scribes disputing against 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 immediately all the crowd seeing him were 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 do ye question with them about? 16 "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.
17 And one out of the crowd answered him, Teacher, I brought to thee my son, who has 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 seizes him it tears him, and he foams and gnashes his teeth, and he is withering away. And I spoke to thy disciples, that they might cast him out, and they could not. 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 But he answering them says, O unbelieving generation! how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him to 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 to him. And seeing him the spirit immediately tore him; and falling upon the earth he rolled 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 a time is it that it has been like this with him? And he said, From childhood; 21 Jesus asked the boy's father, "How long has he been like this?" "From childhood," he answered.
22 and often it has cast him both into fire and into waters that it might destroy him: but if thou couldst [do] anything, be moved with pity 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 to him, The 'if thou couldst' is [if thou couldst] believe: all things are possible to him that believes. 23 " 'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
24 And immediately the father of the young child crying out said [with tears], I believe, help mine unbelief. 24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief !"
25 But Jesus, seeing that [the] crowd was running up together, rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to 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 he became as if dead, so that the most 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, having taken hold of him by the hand, lifted 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 entered into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Wherefore could not *we* cast him out? 28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
29 And he said to them, This kind can go out by nothing but by prayer and fasting. 29 He replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer. "
30 And going forth from thence they went through Galilee; and he would not that any one knew 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 to them, The Son of man is delivered into men's hands, and they shall kill him; and having been 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 feared to ask him. 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.
33 And he came to Capernaum, and being in the house, he asked them, Of what were ye reasoning by 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 And they remained silent, for by the way they had been reasoning with one another who [was] greatest. 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35 And sitting down he called the twelve; and he says to them, If any one would be first, he shall be last of all, and minister 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 taking a little child he set it in their midst, and having taken it in his arms he said to 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, receives me; and whosoever shall receive me, does not receive me, but him who 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 And John answered him saying, Teacher, we saw some one casting out demons in thy name, who does not follow us, and we forbad him, because he does not follow 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 one who shall do a miracle in my name, and be able soon [after] to speak ill 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 who 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 in [my] name, 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 be a snare to one of the little ones who believe [in me], it were better for him if a millstone were hung about his neck, and he 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 serve as a snare to thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having thy two hands to go away into hell, into the fire unquenchable; 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 dies 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 serve as a snare to thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life lame, than having thy two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire unquenchable; 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 dies 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 serve as a snare to thee, cast it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire, 47 Everyone will be salted with fire.
48 where their worm dies 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, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 49
50 Salt [is] good, but if the salt is become saltless, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another. 50
