Matthew 16

1 The Perushim and Tzedukim came, and testing him, asked him to show them a sign from heaven.
2 But he answered them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.'
3 In the morning, 'It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Hypocrites! You know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but you can't discern the signs of the times.
4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there will be no sign given to it, but the sign of the prophet Yonah." He left them, and departed.
5 The talmidim came to the other side and forgot to take bread.
6 Yeshua said to them, "Take heed and beware of the yeast of the Perushim and Tzedukim."
7 They reasoned among themselves, saying, "We brought no bread."
8 Yeshua, perceiving it, said, "Why do you reason among yourselves, you of little faith, 'because you have brought no bread?'
9 Don't you yet perceive, neither remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
10 Nor the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
11 How is it that you don't perceive that I didn't speak to you concerning bread? But beware of the yeast of the Perushim and Tzedukim."
12 Then they understood that he didn't tell them to beware of the yeast of bread, but of the teaching of the Perushim and Tzedukim.
13 Now when Yeshua came into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his talmidim, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?"
14 They said, "Some say Yochanan the immerser, some, Eliyah, and others, Yirmeyahu, or one of the prophets."
15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"
16 Shim`on Kefa answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God."
17 Yeshua answered him, "Blessed are you, Shim`on Bar-Yonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
18 I also tell you that you are Kefa, and on this rock I will build my assembly, and the gates of She'ol will not prevail against it.
19 I will give to you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you will bind on eretz will be bound in heaven; and whatever you will loose on eretz will be loosed in heaven."
20 Then he charged the talmidim that they should tell no man that he is Yeshua the Messiah.
21 From that time, Yeshua began to show to his talmidim that he must go to Yerushalayim and suffer many things from the Zakenim, chief Kohanim, and Sofrim, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.
22 Kefa took him aside, and began to rebuke him, saying, "Far be it from you, Lord! This will never be done to you."
23 But he turned, and said to Kefa, "Get behind me, Hasatan! You are a stumbling-block to me, for you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but the things of men."
24 Then Yeshua said to his talmidim, "If any man desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, and whoever will lose his life for my sake will find it.
26 For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?
27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he will render to everyone according to his deeds.
28 Most assuredly I tell you, there are some standing here who will in no way taste of death, until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."
