King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
18 And it came to pass , as he was alone praying , his disciples were with him: and he asked them, saying , Whom say the people that I am ? 18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, "Who do the crowds say I am?"
19 They answering said , John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others say, that one of the old prophets is risen again . 19 They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life."
20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am ? Peter answering said , The Christ of God. 20 "But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God."
21 And he straitly charged them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; 21 Jesus strictly warned them not to tell this to anyone.
22 Saying , The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain , and be raised the third day. 22 And he said, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life."
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily , and follow me. 23 Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.
25 For what is a man advantaged , if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away ? 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed , when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of 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 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till 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 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings , he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a 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.
29 And as he prayed , the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering . 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.
30 And, behold , there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias: 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. 31 appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus. They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem.
32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake , they saw his glory, and the two men that stood 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 And it came to pass , as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: 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 thus spake , there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. 34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
35 And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying , This is my beloved Son: hear him. 35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."
36 And when the voice was past , Jesus was found alone. And they kept it close , and told no man in those days any of those things which 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.
37 And it came to pass , that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him. 37 The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him.
38 And, behold , a man of the company cried out , saying , Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child. 38 A man in the crowd called out, "Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is my only child.
39 And, lo , a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out ; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him. 39 A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him.
40 And I besought thy disciples to cast him out ; and they could not. 40 I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not."
41 And Jesus answering said , O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. 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 And as he was yet a coming , the devil threw him down , and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. 42 Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father.
43 And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did , he said unto 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 sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered 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 understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying. 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.
46 Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
47 And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.
48 And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. 48 Then he said to them, "Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all--he is the greatest."
49 And John answered and said , Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with 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 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. 50 "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you."
