1 And after six days, Jesus taketh Peter and James and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

2 And was transfigured before them, and his face shone as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

3 And behold there appeared to them Moses and Elijah talking with him.

4 Then answered Peter and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tents, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.

5 While he yet spake, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold a voice out of the cloud which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I delight: hear ye him.

6 And the disciples hearing it, fell on their face and were sore afraid.

7 And Jesus came and touched them and said, Arise and be not afraid.

8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no man, but Jesus only. And as they came down from the mountain,

9 Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, till the Son of man be risen again from the dead.

10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes, That Elijah must come first?

11 And Jesus answering said to them, Elijah truly doth come first, and regulate all things.

12 But I say to you, That Elijah is come already, and they acknowledged him not, but have done to him whatever they listed.

13 So shall also the Son of man suffer from them. Then the disciples understood, that he spoke to them of John the Baptist.

14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man,

15 kneeling down to him, and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is lunatic, and suffereth grievously; for often he falleth into the fire and often into the water.

16 And I brought him to thy disciples, but they could not cure him.

17 Then Jesus answering said, O unbelieving and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you?

18 Bring him hither to me. And Jesus rebuked the devil, and he went out of him, and the child was cured from that hour.

19 Then the disciples coming to Jesus apart said, Why could not we cast him out?

20 And Jesus said to them, Because of your unbelief. For verily I say to you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustardseed, ye shall say to this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible to you.

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out, but by prayer and fasting.

22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men;

23 And they will kill him, and the third day he shall rise again: and they were exceeding sorry.

24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received the tribute-mony came to Peter and said, Doth not your master pay the tribute?

25 He saith, Yes. And when he came into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? Of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute?

26 Of their own sons, or of strangers? Peter saith to him, Of strangers. Jesus saith to him, Then are the sons free.

27 Yet that we may not offend them, go to the sea, and cast an hook, and take the fish that first cometh up. And when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money. That take and give them for me and thee.
