Luke 9:28–36

The Transfiguration

28 aSome eight days after these sayings, He took along bPeter and John and James, and cwent up on the mountain dto pray.

29 And while He was apraying, the appearance of His face bbecame different, and His clothing became white and 1gleaming.

30 And behold, two men were talking with Him; and they were Moses and Elijah,

31 who, appearing in 1glory, were speaking of His adeparture which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.

32 Now Peter and his companions ahad been overcome with sleep; but when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men standing with Him.

33 And as 1these were leaving Him, Peter said to Jesus, “aMaster, it is good for us to be here; blet us make three 2tabernacles: one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—cnot realizing what he was saying.

34 While he was saying this, a cloud 1formed and began to overshadow them; and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.

35 Then aa voice came out of the cloud, saying, “bThis is My Son, My Chosen One; listen to Him!”

36 And when the voice 1had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And athey kept silent, and reported to no one in those days any of the things which they had seen.
