9 As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
10 So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead could mean. 10 They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what "rising from the dead" meant.
11 Then they asked him, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?" 11 And they asked him, "Why do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?"
12 He said to them, "Elijah is indeed coming first to restore all things. How then is it written about the Son of Man, that he is to go through many sufferings and be treated with contempt? 12 Jesus replied, "To be sure, Elijah does come first, and restores all things. Why then is it written that the Son of Man must suffer much and be rejected?
13 But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written about him." 13 But I tell you, Elijah has come, and they have done to him everything they wished, just as it is written about him."
14 When they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and some scribes arguing with them. 14 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them.
15 When the whole crowd saw him, they were immediately overcome with awe, and they ran forward to greet him. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.
16 He asked them, "What are you arguing about with them?" 16 "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.
17 Someone from the crowd answered him, "Teacher, I brought you my son; he has a spirit that makes him unable to speak; 17 A man in the crowd answered, "Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech.
18 and whenever it seizes him, it dashes him down; and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid; and I asked your disciples to cast it out, but they could not do so." 18 Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not."
19 He answered them, "You faithless generation, how much longer must I be among you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him to me." 19 "O unbelieving generation," Jesus replied, "how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me."
20 And they brought the boy to him. When the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 20 So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.

23 Jesus said to him, "If you are able!—All things can be done for the one who believes." 23 " 'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."
24 Immediately the father of the child cried out, "I believe; help my unbelief!" 24 Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief !"
25 When Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You spirit that keeps this boy from speaking and hearing, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again!" 25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the evil spirit. "You deaf and mute spirit," he said, "I command you, come out of him and never enter him again."
26 After crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, "He is dead." 26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, "He's dead."

32 But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him. 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.
33 Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the way?" 33 They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the road?"
34 But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest. 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.
35 He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, "Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all." 35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."
36 Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, 36 He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them,
37 "Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me." 37 "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."
38 John said to him, "Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us." 38 "Teacher," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us."
39 But Jesus said, "Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. 39 "Do not stop him," Jesus said. "No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me,

41 For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward. 41 I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.
42 "If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were hung around your neck and you were thrown into the sea. 42 "And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck.
43 If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than to have two hands and to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. 43 If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off.
