Matthew 17

17:1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, and James, and John his brother, and doth bring them up to a high mount by themselves, 17:2 and he was transfigured before them, and his face shone as the sun, and his garments did become white as the light, 17:3 and lo, appear to them did Moses and Elijah, talking together with him. 17:4 And Peter answering said to Jesus, `Sir, it is good to us to be here; if thou wilt, we may make here three booths--for thee one, and for Moses one, and one for Elijah.' 17:5 While he is yet speaking, lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying, `This is My Son, --the Beloved, in whom I did delight; hear him.' 17:6 And the disciples having heard, did fall upon their face, and were exceedingly afraid, 17:7 and Jesus having come near, touched them, and said, `Rise, be not afraid,' 17:8 and having lifted up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus only. 17:9 And as they are coming down from the mount, Jesus charged them, saying, `Say to no one the vision, till the Son of Man out of the dead may rise.' 17:10 And his disciples questioned him, saying, `Why then do the scribes say that Elijah it behoveth to come first' 17:11 And Jesus answering said to them, `Elijah doth indeed come first, and shall restore all things, 17:12 and I say to you--Elijah did already come, and they did not know him, but did with him whatever they would, so also the Son of Man is about to suffer by them.' 17:13 Then understood the disciples that concerning John the Baptist he spake to them.  17:14 And when they came unto the multitude, there came to him a man, kneeling down to him, 17:15 and saying, `Sir, deal kindly with my son, for he is lunatic, and doth suffer miserably, for often he doth fall into the fire, and often into the water, 17:16 and I brought him near to thy disciples, and they were not able to heal him.' 17:17 And Jesus answering said, `O generation, unstedfast and perverse, till when shall I be with you till when shall I bear you bring him to me hither;' 17:18 and Jesus rebuked him, and the demon went out of him, and the lad was healed from that hour. 17:19 Then the disciples having come to Jesus by himself, said, `Wherefore were we not able to cast him out' 17:20 And Jesus said to them, `Through your want of faith; for verily I say to you, if ye may have faith as a grain of mustard, ye shall say to this mount, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible to you, 17:21 and this kind doth not go forth except in prayer and fasting.'  17:22 And while they are living in Galilee, Jesus said to them, `The Son of Man is about to be delivered up to the hands of men, 17:23 and they shall kill him, and the third day he shall rise,' and they were exceeding sorry.  17:24 And they having come to Capernaum, those receiving the didrachms came near to Peter, and said, `Your teacher--doth he not pay the didrachms' He saith, `Yes.' 17:25 And when he came into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, `What thinkest thou, Simon the kings of the earth--from whom do they receive custom or poll-tax from their sons or from the strangers' 17:26 Peter saith to him, `From the strangers.' Jesus said to him, `Then are the sons free; 17:27 but, that we may not cause them to stumble, having gone to the sea, cast a hook, and the fish that hath come up first take thou up, and having opened its mouth, thou shalt find a stater, that having taken, give to them for me and thee.'
