CEB 2 Six days later Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and brought them to the top of a very high mountain where they were alone. He was transformed in front of them, NRS 2 Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves.

Let's make three shrines—one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." NRS 5 Then Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." CEB 6 He said this because he didn't know how to respond, for the three of them were terrified. NRS 6 He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. CEB 7 Then a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice spoke from the cloud, "This is my Son, whom I dearly love. Listen to him!"

CEB 11 They asked Jesus, "Why do the legal experts say that Elijah must come first?" NRS 11 Then they asked him, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?" CEB 12 He answered, "Elijah does come first to restore all things. Why was it written that the Human One would suffer many things and be rejected? NRS 12 He said to them, "Elijah is indeed coming first to restore all things. How then is it written about the Son of Man, that he is to go through many sufferings and be treated with contempt? CEB 13 In fact, I tell you that Elijah has come, but they did to him whatever they wanted, just as it was written about him." NRS 13 But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written about him."

CEB 17 Someone from the crowd responded, "Teacher, I brought my son to you, since he has a spirit that doesn't allow him to speak. NRS 17 Someone from the crowd answered him, "Teacher, I brought you my son; he has a spirit that makes him unable to speak; CEB 18 Wherever it overpowers him, it throws him into a fit. He foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and stiffens up. So I spoke to your disciples to see if they could throw it out, but they couldn't." NRS 18 and whenever it seizes him, it dashes him down; and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid; and I asked your disciples to cast it out, but they could not do so." CEB 19 Jesus answered them, "You faithless generation, how long will I be with you? How long will I put up with you? Bring him to me." NRS 19 He answered them, "You faithless generation, how much longer must I be among you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him to me." CEB 20 They brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a fit. He fell on the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. NRS 20 And they brought the boy to him.

All things are possible for the one who has faith." NRS 23 Jesus said to him, "If you are able!—All things can be done for the one who believes." CEB 24 At that the boy's father cried out, "I have faith; help my lack of faith!" NRS 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out, "I believe; help my unbelief!" CEB 25 Noticing that the crowd had surged together, Jesus spoke harshly to the unclean spirit, "Mute and deaf spirit, I command you to come out of him and never enter him again." NRS 25 When Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You spirit that keeps this boy from speaking and hearing, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again!" CEB 26 After screaming and shaking the boy horribly, the spirit came out. The boy seemed to be dead; in fact, several people said that he had died.

NRS 30 They went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; CEB 31 This was because he was teaching his disciples, "The Human One will be delivered into human hands. They will kill him. Three days after he is killed he will rise up." NRS 31 for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, "The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again." CEB 32 But they didn't understand this kind of talk, and they were afraid to ask him. NRS 32 But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him. CEB 33 They entered Capernaum.
