Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (8-39) And he said to them: Amen f say to you that there are some of them that stand here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God coming 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 (9-1) And after six days, Jesus taketh with him Peter and James and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves, and 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 (9-2) And his garments became shining and exceeding white as snow, so as no fuller upon earth can make white. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them.
4 (9-3) 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 (9-4) And Peter answering, said 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 Elias. 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 (9-5) For he knew not what he said: for they were struck with fear. 6 (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)
7 (9-6) And there was a cloud overshadowing them. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying: This is my most 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 (9-7) And immediately looking about, they saw no man any more, but Jesus only with them. 8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.
9 (9-8) And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them not to tell any man what things they had seen, till the Son of man shall be 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 (9-9) And they kept the word to themselves; questioning together what that should mean, when he shall be risen from the dead. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what "rising from the dead" meant.
11 (9-10) And they asked him, saying: Why then do the Pharisees and scribes say that Elias must come first? 11 And they asked him, "Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
12 (9-11) Who answering, said to then: Elias, when he shall come first, shall restore all things; and as it is written of the Son of man that he must suffer many things and be despised. 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 (9-12) But I say to you that Elias also is come (and they have done to him whatsoever 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 (9-13) And coming to his disciples he saw a great multitude about them and the scribes disputing 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 (9-14) And presently all the people, seeing Jesus, were astonished and struck with fear: and running to him, they saluted him. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.
16 (9-15) And he asked them: What do you question about among you? 16 "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.
17 (9-16) And one of the multitude, answering, said: Master, I have brought my son to thee, having 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 (9-17) Who, wheresoever he taketh him, dasheth him: and he foameth and gnasheth with the teeth and pineth away. And I spoke to thy disciples to 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 (9-18) Who answering them, said: O incredulous generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer 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 (9-19) And they brought him. And when he had seen him, immediately the spirit troubled him and being thrown down upon the ground, he rolled about 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 (9-20) And he asked his father: How long time is it since this hath happened unto him? But he sad: From his infancy. 21 Jesus asked the boy's father, "How long has he been like this?" "From childhood," he answered.
22 (9-21) And oftentimes hath he cast him into the fire and into the waters to destroy him. But if thou canst do any thing, help us, having compassion on 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 (9-22) And Jesus saith to him: If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. 23 " 'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
24 (9-23) And immediately the father of the boy crying out, with tears said: I do believe, Lord. Help my unbelief. 24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief !"
25 (9-24) And when Jesus saw the multitude running together, he threatened the unclean spirit, saying to him: Deaf and dumb spirit, I command thee, go out of him and enter not any 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 (9-25) And crying out and greatly tearing him, he went our of him. And he became as dead, so that many 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 (9-26) But Jesus taking 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 (9-27) And when he was come into the house, his disciples secretly asked him: Why 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 (9-28) 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 (9-29) And departing from thence, they 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 (9-30) And he taught his disciples and said to them: The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise again the third day. 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 (9-31) But they understood not the word: and they were afraid to ask him. 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.
33 (9-32) And they came to Capharnaum. And when they were in the house, he asked them: What did you treat of in 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 (9-33) But they held their peace, for in the way they had disputed among themselves, which of them should be the greatest. 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35 (9-34) And sitting down, he called the twelve and saith to them: If any man desire to be first, he shall be the last of all and be 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 (9-35) And taking a child, he set him in the midst of them. Whom when he had embraced, he saith to them: 36 He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them,
37 (9-36) Whosoever shall receive one such child as this in my name receiveth me. And whosoever shall receive 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 (9-37) John answered him, saying: Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us: and we forbade him. 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 (9-38) But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no man that doth a miracle in my name and can soon 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 (9-39) For he that is not against you is for you. 40 for whoever is not against us is for us.
41 (9-40) For whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water in my name, because you belong to Christ: amen I say to you, he shall not 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 (9-41) And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me: it were better for him that a 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 (9-42) And if thy hand scandalize thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life, maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into 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 (9-43) Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished. 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 (9-44) And if thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter lame into life everlasting than having two feet to be cast into the hell of unquenchable fire: 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 (9-45) Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished. 46 where " 'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'
47 (9-46) And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee with one eye to enter into the kingdom of God than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire: 47 Everyone will be salted with fire.
48 (9-47) Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished. 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 (9-48) For every one shall be salted with fire: and every victim shall be salted with salt. 49
50 (9-49) Salt is good. But if the salt become unsavoury, wherewith will you season it? Have salt in you: and have peace among you. 50
