Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And after six days Jesus took Peter, and James, and John, his brother, and led them aside into an high hill, 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 was transfigured into another likeness before them [and was transfigured, or turned into another likeness, before them]. And his face shone as the sun; and his clothes were made white as snow. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.
3 And lo! Moses and Elias appeared to them, and spake with him. [And lo! Moses and Elias appeared to them, speaking with him.] 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 And Peter answered, and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good us to be here. If thou wilt, make we here three tabernacles; to thee one, to Moses one, and one to Elias. 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 Yet while he spake, lo! a bright cloud overshadowed them; and lo! a voice out of the cloud, that said, This is my dear-worthy Son, in whom I have well pleased to me; 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 the disciples heard, and felled down [fell down] on their faces, and dreaded greatly. 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified.
7 And Jesus came, and touched them, and said to them, Rise up, and do not ye dread. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. "Get up," he said. "Don't be afraid."
8 And they lifted up their eyes, and saw no man, but Jesus alone. 8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.
9 And as they came down of the hill, Jesus commanded to them, and said, Say ye to no man the vision, till man's Son rise again from death. [+And, they coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Say ye to no man the vision, till that man's Son rise again from 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, and said, What then say the scribes, that it behooveth that Elias come first? [And his disciples asked him, saying, What therefore say scribes, that it behooveth Elias first come?] 10 The disciples asked him, "Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
11 [And] He answered, and said to them, [Forsooth] Elias shall come, and he shall restore all things. 11 Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.
12 And I say to you, that Elias is now come, and they knew him not, but they did in him whatever things they would; and so man's Son shall suffer of 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 said to them of John the Baptist. 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.
14 And when he came to the people [And when he came to the company], a man came to him, and felled [fell] down on his knees before him, and said [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 suffereth evil, for oft times he falleth into the fire, and oft times 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 might not heal him. 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him."
17 Jesus answered, and said, A! thou generation unbelieveful [unbelieveful, or out of the faith,] and wayward; how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? Bring ye 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 blamed him, and the devil went out from him; and the child was healed 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 privily, and said to him, Why might not we cast him out? 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, "Why couldn't we drive it out?"
20 Jesus saith to them [Jesus said to them], For your unbelief. Truly I say to you, if ye have faith, as a corn of mustard seed, ye shall say to this hill, Pass thou hence [Pass thou from hence], and it shall pass; 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 but this kind is not cast 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 whiles they were abiding together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, Man's Son shall 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 shall slay him, and the third day he shall rise again to life [and the third day he shall rise again]. And they were full 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 And when they came to Capernaum, they that took tribute, came to Peter, and said to him, Your master payeth not 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 And he said, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus came before him, and said, Simon, what seemeth to thee? Kings of the earth, of whom take they tribute? of their sons, either of aliens? [+And he saith, Yea. And when he had entered into an house, Jesus came before him, saying, Simon, what seemeth to thee? Of which take the kings of earth tribute, or rent? of their own sons, or of aliens?] 25 "From others," Peter answered. "Then the sons are exempt," Jesus said to him.
26 And he said, Of aliens. Jesus said to him, Then sons be 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 But that we offend them not, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take that fish that first cometh up; and, when his mouth is opened, thou shalt find a stater [a stater, that is, a certain of money]; take it, and give for thee and for me [thou taking it, give to them for me and for thee]. 27
