Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 He went on to say, "In solemn truth I tell you that some of those who are standing here will certainly not taste death till they have seen the Kingdom of God already 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 Six days later, Jesus took with Him Peter, James, and John, and brought them alone, apart from the rest, up a high mountain; and in their presence His appearance underwent a change. 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 His garments also became dazzling with brilliant whiteness--such whiteness as no bleaching on earth could give. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them.
4 Moreover there appeared to them Elijah accompanied by Moses; and the two were conversing with Jesus, 4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.
5 when Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, we are thankful to you that we are here. Let us put up three tents--one for you, 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 say: they were filled with such awe. 6 (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)
7 Then there came a cloud spreading over them, and a voice issued from the cloud, "This is my Son, dearly loved: listen to 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 Instantly they looked round, and now they could no longer see any one, but themselves and Jesus. 8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.
9 As they were coming down from the mountain, He very strictly forbad them to tell any one what they had seen "until after the Son of Man has 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 So they kept the matter to themselves, although frequently asking one another what was meant by the rising from the dead. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what "rising from the dead" meant.
11 They also asked Him, "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 "Elijah," He replied, "does indeed come first and reforms everything; but how is it that it is written of the Son of Man that He will endure much suffering and be held in contempt? 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 Yet I tell you that not only has Elijah come, but they have also done to him whatever they chose, as the Scriptures say about 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 As they came to rejoin the disciples, they saw an immense crowd surrounding them and a party of 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 Immediately the whole multitude on beholding Him were astonished and awe-struck, and yet they ran forward and greeted Him. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.
16 "What is the subject you are discussing?" He asked them. 16 "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.
17 "Rabbi," answered one of the crowd, "I have brought you my son. He has a dumb spirit in him; 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 it comes upon him, it dashes him to the ground, and he foams at the mouth and grinds his teeth, and he is pining away. I begged your disciples to expel it, but they had not the power." 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 "O unbelieving generation!" replied Jesus; "how long must I be with you? how long must I have patience with you? Bring the boy 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 So they brought him to Jesus. And the spirit, when he saw Jesus, immediately threw the youth into convulsions, so that he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 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 Then Jesus asked the father, "How long has he been like this?" "From early childhood," he said; 21 Jesus asked the boy's father, "How long has he been like this?" "From childhood," he answered.
22 "and often it has thrown him into the fire or into pools of water to destroy him. But, if you possibly can, have 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 "`If I possibly can!'" replied Jesus; "why, everything is possible to him who believes." 23 " 'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
24 Immediately the father cried out, "I do believe: strengthen my weak faith." 24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief !"
25 Then Jesus, seeing that an increasing crowd was running towards Him, rebuked the foul spirit, and said to it, "Dumb and deaf spirit, *I* command you, come out of him and never enter into him again." 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 So with a loud cry he threw the boy into fit after fit, and came out. The boy looked as if he were dead, so that most of them said he was 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 his hand and raised him up, and he stood on his feet. 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.
28 After the return of Jesus to the house His disciples asked Him privately, "How is it that we could not expel the spirit?" 28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
29 "An evil spirit of this kind," He answered, "can only be driven out by prayer." 29 He replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer. "
30 Departing thence they passed through Galilee, and He was unwilling that any one 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 was teaching His disciples, and telling them, "The Son of Man is to be betrayed into the hands of men, and they will put Him to death; and after being put to death, in three days He will rise to life 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 They, however, did not understand what He meant, and were afraid to question Him. 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.
33 So they came to Capernaum; and when in the house He asked them, "What were you arguing about 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 remained silent; for on the way they had debated with one another who was the chief of them. 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35 Then sitting down He called the Twelve, and said to them, "If any one wishes to be first, he must 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 taking a young child He made him stand in their midst, then threw His arms round him and said, 36 He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them,
37 "Whoever for my sake receives one such young child as this, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not so much me as 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 "Rabbi," said John to Him, "we saw a man making use of your name to expel demons, and we tried to hinder him, on the ground that he did 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 "You should not have tried to hinder him," replied Jesus, "for there is no one who will use my name to perform a miracle and be able the next minute 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 He who is not against us is for us; 40 for whoever is not against us is for us.
41 and whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, I solemnly tell you that he will certainly 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 occasion the fall of one of these little ones who believe, he would be better off if, with a millstone round his neck, he were lying at the bottom of 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 If your hand should cause you to sin, cut it off: it would be better for you to enter into Life maimed, than remain in possession of both your hands and go away into Gehenna, into the fire which cannot be put out. 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 [] 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 Or if your foot should cause you to sin, cut it off: it would be better for you to enter into Life crippled, than remain in possession of both your feet and be thrown into Gehenna. 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 [] 46 where " 'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'
47 Or if your eye should cause you to sin, tear it out. It would be better for you to enter into the Kingdom of God half-blind than remain in possession of two eyes and be thrown into Gehenna, 47 Everyone will be salted with fire.
48 where their worm does not die and the fire does not go out. 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 Every one, however, will be salted with fire. 49
50 Salt is a good thing, but if the salt should become tasteless, what will you use to give it saltness? Have salt within you and live at peace with one another." 50
