RSVA 12 And he said to them, "Eli'jah does come first to restore all things; and how is it written of the Son of man, that he should suffer many things and be treated with contempt? NIV 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? RSVA 13 But I tell you that Eli'jah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him."
