1 After six days, Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John, his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain by themselves. 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 He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his garments became 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 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 Peter answered, and said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you want, let's make three tents here: one for you, 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 still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them. Behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Listen to 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 When the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces, and were very afraid. 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified.
7 Jesus came and touched them and said, "Get up, and don't be afraid." 7 But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid."
8 Lifting up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus alone. 8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
9 As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, "Don't tell anyone what you saw, until the Son of Man has risen 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 His disciples asked him, saying, "Then why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 10 The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
11 Jesus answered them, "Elijah indeed comes first, and will restore all things, 11 Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.
12 but I tell you that Elijah has come already, and they didn't recognize him, but did to him whatever they wanted to. Even so will the Son of Man also 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 of John the Baptizer. 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.
14 When they came to the multitude, there came to him a man, kneeling to him, 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 epileptic, and suffers grievously; for he often falls 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 So I brought him to your disciples, and they could not cure him." 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him."
17 Jesus answered, "Faithless and perverse generation! How long will I be with you? How long will I bear with you? Bring him here 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 Jesus rebuked him, the demon went out of him, and the boy was cured from that hour. 18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed from that moment.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately, and said, "Why were we not able to cast it out?" 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
20 He said to them, "Because of your unbelief. For most assuredly I tell you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will 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 But this kind doesn't go out except 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 While they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is about to be delivered up 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 up." They were exceedingly sorry. 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 When they were come to Capernaum, those who collected the didrachmas came to Peter, and said, "Doesn't your teacher pay the didrachma?" 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 said, "Yes." When he came into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, "What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth receive toll or tribute? From their sons, or from strangers?" 25 "From others," Peter answered. "Then the sons are exempt," Jesus said to him.
26 Peter said to him, "From strangers." Jesus said to him, "Therefore the sons are exempt. 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 But, lest we cause them to stumble, go to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the first fish that comes up. When you have opened his mouth, you will find a stater. Take that, and give it to them for me and you." 27
