2 cNow after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up on a high mountain apart by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. 3 His clothes became shining, exceedingly dwhite, like snow, such as no launderer on earth can whiten them. 4 And Elijah appeared to them with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5 Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—6 because he did not know what to say, for they were greatly afraid.
7 And a ecloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is fMy beloved Son. gHear Him!” 8 Suddenly, when they had looked around, they saw no one anymore, but only Jesus with themselves.
9 hNow as they came down from the mountain, He commanded them that they should tell no one the things they had seen, till the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 So they kept this word to themselves, questioning iwhat the rising from the dead meant.
11 And they asked Him, saying, “Why do the scribes say jthat Elijah must come first?”
12 Then He answered and told them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming first and restores all things. And khow is it written concerning the Son of Man, that He must suffer many things and lbe treated with contempt? 13 But I say to you that mElijah has also come, and they did to him whatever they wished, as it is written of him.”
