Let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah"-not knowing what he said. 33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, "Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters--one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah." (He did not know what he was saying.)
34 While he was saying this, a cloud appeared and overshadowed them. They became afraid as they entered the cloud. 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
35 Then a voice came from the cloud, saying: This is My Son, the Chosen One; listen to Him! 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."
36 After the voice had spoken, only Jesus was found. They kept silent, and in those days told no one what they had seen. 36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves, and told no one at that time what they had seen.

But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father.
43 And they were all astonished at the greatness of God. While everyone was amazed at all the things He was doing, He told His disciples, 43 And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. While everyone was marveling at all that Jesus did, he said to his disciples,
44 "Let these words sink in: the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men." 44 "Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men."
45 But they did not understand this statement; it was concealed from them so that they could not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask Him about it. 45 But they did not understand what this meant. It was hidden from them, so that they did not grasp it, and they were afraid to ask him about it.

47 But Jesus, knowing the thoughts of their hearts, took a little child and had him stand next to Him. 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.

49 John responded, "Master, we saw someone driving out demons in Your name, and we tried to stop him because he does not follow us." 49 "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us."
50 "Don't stop him," Jesus told him, "because whoever is not against you is for you." 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."

53 But they did not welcome Him, because He determined to journey to Jerusalem. 53 but the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem.
