2 Six days later, Jesus *took with Him Peter and [a]James and John, and *brought them up on a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them;3 and His garments became radiant and exceedingly white, as no launderer on earth can whiten them.4 Elijah appeared to them along with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus.5 Peter *said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three [b]tabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”6 For he did not know what to answer; for they became terrified.7 Then a cloud [c]formed, overshadowing them, and a voice [d]came out of the cloud, “This is My beloved Son, [e]listen to Him!”8 All at once they looked around and saw no one with them anymore, except Jesus alone.
28 Some eight days after these sayings, He took along Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray.29 And while He was praying, the appearance of His face became different, and His clothing became white and[a]gleaming.30 And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah,31 who, appearing in [b]glory, were speaking of His departure which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.32 Now Peter and his companions had been overcome with sleep; but when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men standing with Him.33 And as [c]these were leaving Him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here; let us make three [d]tabernacles: one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—not realizing what he was saying.34 While he was saying this, a cloud [e]formed and began to overshadow them; and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.35 Then a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, My Chosen One; listen to Him!”36 And when the voice [f]had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent, and reported to no one in those days any of the things which they had seen.
