25 (A)For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? 26 For (B)whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed (C)when he comes in (D)his glory and the glory of the Father and of (E)the holy angels. 27 But I tell you truly, there are some standing here who will not (F)taste death (G)until they see the kingdom of God.”

Let us make three (O)tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah”—(P)not knowing what he said. 34 As he was saying these things, (Q)a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 And (R)a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, (S)my Chosen One;[b] (T)listen to him!” 36 And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. (U)And they kept silent and told no one in those days anything of what they had seen.
