The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And after six days, Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them upon a high mountain apart. 1 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
2 And [he] was transfigured before them: and his face shone as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.
3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah talking with him. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Then answered Peter, and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. 4 Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah."
5 While he was yet speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold, a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: hear ye him. 5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!"
6 And when the disciples heard [it], they fell on their face, and were in great fear. 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified.
7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid."
8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. 8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
9 And as they were descending the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be raised again from the dead. 9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, "Don't tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead."
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes, that Elijah must first come? 10 The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
11 And Jesus answered and said to them, Elijah truly will first come, and restore all things: 11 Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.
12 But I say to you, that Elijah is come already, and they knew him not, but have done to him whatever they pleased: likewise will also the Son of man suffer by them. 12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands."
13 Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them concerning John the Baptist. 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.
14 And when they had come to the multitude, there came to him a [certain] man kneeling down to him, and saying, 14 When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him.
15 Lord, have mercy on my son; for he is lunatic, and grievously distressed; for often he falleth into the fire, and often into the water. 15 "Lord, have mercy on my son," he said. "He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water.
16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him."
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. 17 "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy here to me."
18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
20 And Jesus said to them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say to you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard-seed, ye shall say to this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you. 20 He replied, "Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. "
21 However, this kind goeth not out, but by prayer and fasting. 21 When they came together in Galilee, he said to them, "The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men.
22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of man will be betrayed into the hands of men: 22 They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised to life." And the disciples were filled with grief.
23 And they will kill him, and the third day he will be raised again: And they were exceedingly grieved. 23 After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma tax came to Peter and asked, "Doesn't your teacher pay the temple tax ?"
24 And when they had come to Capernaum, they that received tribute-[money], came to Peter, and said, Doth not your Master pay tribute? 24 "Yes, he does," he replied. When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. "What do you think, Simon?" he asked. "From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes--from their own sons or from others?"
25 He saith, Yes. And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? from whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? from their own children, or from strangers? 25 "From others," Peter answered. "Then the sons are exempt," Jesus said to him.
26 Peter saith to him, From strangers. Jesus saith to him, Then are the children free. 26 "But so that we may not offend them, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours."
27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast a hook, and take the fish that first cometh up: and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: take that, and give to them for me and thee. 27
