2 And after six days, Jesus taketh [with him] Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up upon 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.

Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."

9 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen 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 that saying with themselves, questioning one with another what the rising 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, Why say the scribes 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 answered and told them, Elijah verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written concerning the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at naught. 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 to you, that Elijah is indeed come, and they have done to him whatever they pleased, as it is written concerning 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 [his] disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the 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 immediately all the people, when they beheld 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 the scribes, What question ye with them? 16 "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.
17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought to 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 wherever he taketh him, he teareth him; and he foameth and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away; and I spoke to thy disciples that they should 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 He answered him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you, how long shall I suffer 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 when he saw him, immediately the spirit tore him; 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.

23 Jesus said 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 And immediately the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief. 24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief !"
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying to him, [Thou] dumb and deaf spirit, I charge 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 [the spirit] cried, and rent him severely, and came out of him: and he was as one 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."

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 that 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 he came to Capernaum: and being in the house, he asked them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves 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 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who [should be] 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 saith to them, If any man desireth to be first, [the same] 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 child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him 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,

38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out demons in thy name, and he followeth not us; and we forbad him, because he followeth 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 miracle in my name, that can lightly 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,

41 For whoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily 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 And whoever shall cause one of [these] little ones that believe in me, to fall into sin, it is 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 And if thy hand causeth thee to fall into sin, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 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 causeth thee to fall into sin, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 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,

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, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 49
50 Salt [is] good: but if the salt hath lost its saltness, with what will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another. 50
