Matthew 17

1 After six days, Yeshua took with him Kefa, Ya`akov, and Yochanan, his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain by themselves.
2 He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his garments became as white as the light.
3 Behold, there appeared to them Moshe and Eliyah talking with him.
4 Kefa answered, and said to Yeshua, "Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you want, let's make three tents here: one for you, one for Moshe, and one for Eliyah."
5 While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them. Behold, a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Listen to him."
6 When the talmidim heard it, they fell on their faces, and were very afraid.
7 Yeshua came and touched them and said, "Get up, and don't be afraid."
8 Lifting up their eyes, they saw no one, except Yeshua alone.
9 As they were coming down from the mountain, Yeshua commanded them, saying, "Don't tell anyone what you saw, until the Son of Man has risen from the dead."
10 His talmidim asked him, saying, "Then why do the Sofrim say that Eliyah must come first?
11 Yeshua answered them, "Eliyah indeed comes first, and will restore all things,
12 but I tell you that Eliyah has come already, and they didn't recognize him, but did to him whatever they wanted to. Even so will the Son of Man also suffer by them."
13 Then the talmidim understood that he spoke to them of Yochanan the immerser.
14 When they came to the multitude, a man came to him, kneeling to him, saying,
15 "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is epileptic, and suffers grievously; for he often falls into the fire, and often into the water.
16 So I brought him to your talmidim, and they could not cure him."
17 Yeshua answered, "Faithless and perverse generation! How long will I be with you? How long will I bear with you? Bring him here to me."
18 Yeshua rebuked him, the demon went out of him, and the boy was cured from that hour.
19 Then the talmidim came to Yeshua privately, and said, "Why weren't we able to cast it out?"
20 He said to them, "Because of your unbelief. For most assuredly I tell you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
21 But this kind doesn't go out except by prayer and fasting."
22 While they were staying in the Galil, Yeshua said to them, "The Son of Man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men,
23 and they will kill him, and the third day he will be raised up." They were exceedingly sorry.
24 When they had come to Kafar-Nachum, those who collected the didrachmas came to Kefa, and said, "Doesn't your teacher pay the didrachma?"
25 He said, "Yes." When he came into the house, Yeshua anticipated him, saying, "What do you think, Shim`on? From whom do the kings of the eretz receive toll or tribute? From their sons, or from strangers?"
26 Kefa said to him, "From strangers." Yeshua said to him, "Therefore the sons are exempt.
27 But, lest we cause them to stumble, go to the sea, and cast a hook, and take up the first fish that comes up. When you have opened his mouth, you will find a stater. Take that, and give it to them for me and you."
