Matthew 17:5 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud shadowed them: and behold, there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is [a]that my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: hear him.


  1. Matthew 17:5 The article or the word, That, severeth Christ from other children. For he is God’s natural Son, we by adoption, therefore he is called the first begotten among the brethren, because that although he be of right the only Son, yet is he chief among many in that he is the fountain and head of the adoption.
