The Transfiguration

17 gAnd after six days Jesus took with him hPeter and James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was itransfigured before them, and jhis face shone like the sun, and khis 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 lElijah. He was still speaking when, behold, ma bright cloud overshadowed them, and ma voice from the cloud said, nThis is my beloved Son,1 with whom I am well pleased; olisten to him. When pthe disciples heard this, qthey fell on their faces and were terrified. But Jesus came and rtouched them, saying, Rise, and shave no fear. And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.

And he was qtransfigured before them, and rhis clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one1 on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter said to Jesus, sRabbi,2 it is good that we are here. Let us make three ttents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah. For uhe did not know what to say, for they were terrified. And va cloud overshadowed them, and va voice came out of the cloud, wThis is my beloved Son;3 xlisten to him. And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.


The Transfiguration

28 dNow about eight days after these sayings he took with him ePeter and John and James and fwent up on the mountain to pray. 29 And as he was praying, the appearance of his face was galtered, and hhis 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,1 which he was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. 32 Now Peter and those who were with him iwere heavy with sleep, but when they became fully awake jthey 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 ktents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijahlnot knowing what he said. 34 As he was saying these things, ma cloud came and overshadowed them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 And ma voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my Son, nmy Chosen One;2 olisten to him! 36 And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. pAnd they kept silent and told no one in those days anything of what they had seen.
