Mark 9:8 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 9:8

And suddenly, when they had looked round about
Upon hearing the voice, to see if they could observe any other object, by whom it was pronounced, and whether the same they had seen continued:

they saw no man any more;
neither Moses, nor Elias, not at that time, nor ever after;

save Jesus only with themselves:
the voice only regarded him, and being directed to them; (See Gill on Matthew 17:8).

Mark 9:8 In-Context

6 He did not know what to say, for they were terrified.
7 Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, "This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!"
8 Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus.
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.
10 So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead could mean.
