Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
23 And He said to all, "If any one is desirous of following me, let him ignore self and take up his cross day by day, and so be my follower. 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 whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake 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 Why, what benefit is it to a man to have gained the whole world, but to have lost or forfeited his own self. 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self ?
26 For whoever shall have been ashamed of me and my teachings, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own and the Father's glory and in that 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 I tell you truly that there are some of those who stand here who will certainly not taste death till they have seen 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 It was about eight days after this that Jesus, taking with Him Peter, John, and James, went up 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.
29 And while He was praying the appearance of His face underwent a change, and His clothing became white and radiant. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.
30 And suddenly there were two men conversing with Him, who were Moses and Elijah. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah,
31 They came in glory, and kept speaking about His death, which He was so soon to undergo in 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 Now Peter and the others were weighed down with sleep; but, keeping themselves awake all through, they saw His glory, and the two men 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 And when they were preparing to depart from Him, Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, we are thankful to you that we are here. Let us put up three tents--one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." He did not know what he was saying. 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.)
