The Transfiguration

17 (A)And after six days Jesus took with him (B)Peter and James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was (C)transfigured before them, and (D)his face shone like the sun, and (E)his clothes became white as light. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him. And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for (F)Elijah.” He was still speaking when, behold, (G)a bright cloud overshadowed them, and (H)a voice from the cloud said, (I)“This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased; (J)listen to him.” When (K)the disciples heard this, (L)they fell on their faces and were terrified. But Jesus came and (M)touched them, saying, “Rise, and (N)have no fear.” And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.

(O)And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, (P)“Tell no one the vision, until the Son of Man is raised from the dead.” 10 And the disciples asked him, “Then why do the scribes say (Q)that first Elijah must come?” 11 He answered, “Elijah does come, and (R)he will restore all things. 12 But I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but (S)did to him whatever they pleased. (T)So also the Son of Man will certainly suffer at their hands.” 13 (U)Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.

The Transfiguration

(A)And after six days Jesus took with him (B)Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was (C)transfigured before them, and (D)his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one[a] on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter said to Jesus, (E)“Rabbi,[b] it is good that we are here. Let us make three (F)tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” For (G)he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. And (H)a cloud overshadowed them, and (I)a voice came out of the cloud, (J)“This is my beloved Son;[c] (K)listen to him.” And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.

(L)And as they were coming down the mountain, (M)he charged them to tell no one what they had seen, (N)until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 (O)So they kept the matter to themselves, (P)questioning what this rising from the dead might mean. 11 And they asked him, “Why do the scribes say (Q)that first Elijah must come?” 12 And he said to them, “Elijah does come first (R)to restore all things. And (S)how is it written of the Son of Man that he should (T)suffer many things and (U)be treated with contempt? 13 But I tell you that Elijah has come, and (V)they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written of him.”

The Transfiguration

28 (A)Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him (B)Peter and John and James and (C)went up on the mountain to pray. 29 And as he was praying, the appearance of his face was (D)altered, and (E)his clothing became dazzling white. 30 And behold, two men were talking with him, Moses and Elijah, 31 who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure,[a] which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 32 Now Peter and those who were with him (F)were heavy with sleep, but when they became fully awake (G)they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. 33 And as the men were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here. Let us make three (H)tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah”—(I)not knowing what he said. 34 As he was saying these things, (J)a cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 And (K)a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, (L)my Chosen One;[b] (M)listen to him!” 36 And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. (N)And they kept silent and told no one in those days anything of what they had seen.
