The Transfiguration

After(A) six days(B) Jesus took Peter, James, and John(C) and led them up on a high mountain(D) by themselves to be alone. He was transformed[a](E) in front of them, and His clothes(F) became dazzling—extremely white(G) as no launderer on earth could whiten(H) them. Elijah(I) appeared to them with Moses,(J) and they were talking with Jesus.

Then Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi,(K) it’s good(L) for us to be here! Let us make three tabernacles:(M) one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”— because he did not know what he should say,(N) since they were terrified.(O)

A cloud(P) appeared, overshadowing(Q) them, and a voice(R) came from the cloud:(S)

This is My beloved(T) Son;(U)
listen to Him!(V)

Then suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus alone.

The Transfiguration

28 About eight days after these words,(A) He took along Peter, John, and James(B) and went up on the mountain to pray.(C) 29 As He was praying, the appearance of His face changed,(D) and His clothes became dazzling white.(E) 30 Suddenly, two men were talking with Him—Moses and Elijah. 31 They appeared in glory and were speaking of His death,[a] which He was about to accomplish in Jerusalem.

32 Peter and those with him were in a deep sleep,[b](F) and when they became fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men who were standing with Him. 33 As the two men were departing from Him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master,(G) it’s good for us to be here! Let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—not knowing what he said.(H)

34 While he was saying this, a cloud appeared and overshadowed(I) them. They became afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 Then a voice came from the cloud,(J) saying:

This is My Son,(K) the Chosen One;[c](L)
listen to Him!(M)

36 After the voice had spoken, only Jesus was found. They kept silent, and in those days told no one what they had seen.
