And after six days Jesus took along Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothing became bright as the light.
And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with him.
So Peter answered [and] said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good [that] we are here! If you want, I will make here three shelters, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah."
[While] he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him!"
And [when] the disciples heard [this], they fell down on their faces and were extremely frightened.
And Jesus came and touched them [and] said, "Get up and do not be afraid."
And [when they] lifted up their eyes they saw no one except him--Jesus alone.
And [as] they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them saying, "Tell no one the vision until the Son of Man is raised from the dead."
And the disciples asked him, saying, "Then why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
And he answered [and] said, "Elijah indeed is coming, and will restore all [things].
But I say to you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but did with him whatever they wanted. In the [same] way also the Son of Man is going to suffer [at] their hands."
Then the disciples understood that he had spoken to them about John the Baptist.
