26 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory and that of the Father and the holy angels. 26 If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
27 I tell you the truth: there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God." 27 I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God."
28 About eight days after these words, He took along Peter, John, and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. 28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray.

32 Peter and those with him were in a deep sleep, and when they became fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men who were standing with Him. 32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
33 As the two men were departing from Him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it's good for us to be here! 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.

39 Often a spirit seizes him; suddenly he shrieks, and it throws him into convulsions until he foams at the mouth; wounding him, it hardly ever leaves him. 39 A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth.

40 I begged Your disciples to drive it out, but they couldn't." 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not."
41 Jesus replied, "You unbelieving and rebellious generation! How long will I be with you and put up with you? Bring your son here." 41 "O unbelieving and perverse generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you and put up with you? Bring your son here."
42 As the boy was still approaching, the demon knocked him down and threw him into severe convulsions.

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.

For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest."
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."
