Matthew 17:5 The Passion Translation (TPT)

But while Peter was still speaking, a radiant cloud composed of light spread over them, enveloping them all.[a] And God’s voice suddenly spoke from the cloud, saying, “This is my dearly loved Son, the constant focus of my delight.[b] Listen to him!”[c]


  1. Matthew 17:5 See Acts 5:15. The Greek word translated “overshadow” is episkiazo, which is used exclusively for the power of the Almighty “overshadowing,” such as Mary, who conceived a child supernaturally by God. See also Mark 9:7; Luke 1:35. This was not a natural shadow created by the light of the sun, but the supernatural overshadowing of God’s power. Jesus will appear again in these clouds of glory. See Matt. 16:27; 24:30; 26:64.
  2. Matthew 17:5 Or “He is the one on whom my favor rests.”
  3. Matthew 17:5 Or “You must constantly listen to him.” See Ps. 2:7; Isa. 42:1.
