17 Now aafter six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; 2 and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. 3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. 4 Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, 1let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
5 bWhile he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, c“This is My beloved Son, din whom I am well pleased. eHear Him!” 6 fAnd when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid. 7 But Jesus came and gtouched them and said, “Arise, and do not be afraid.” 8 When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.
10 And His disciples asked Him, saying, h“Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”
11 Jesus answered and said to them, “Indeed, Elijah is coming 2first and will irestore all things. 12 jBut I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they kdid not know him but did to him whatever they wished. Likewise lthe Son of Man is also about to suffer at their hands.” 13 mThen the disciples understood that He spoke to them of John the Baptist.
14 nAnd when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is 3an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”
17 Then Jesus answered and said, “O 4faithless and operverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” 18 And Jesus prebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.
20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your 5unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, qif you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 6However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
22 rNow while they were 7staying 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 will be raised up.” And they were exceedingly ssorrowful.
And when he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from ustrangers?”
Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free. 27 Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a 1piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.”
