Matthew 17:1 And after sixe dayes Iesus toke Peter Iames, and Ihon his brother, and brought them vp in to an hye mountayne out of the waye, Matthew 17:2 and was transfigured before the: & his face shone as ye Sonne, and his clothes were as white as the light. Matthew 17:3 And beholde, there appeared vnto the Moses and Elias talkinge with him. Matthew 17:4 Then answered Peter, and sayde vnto Iesus: LORDE, here is good beynge for us. Yf thou wilt, let us make here thre tabernacles: one for the, one for Moses, and one for Elias. Matthew 17:5 Whyle he yet spake, beholde, a bright cloude ouershadowed them: and lo, there came a voyce out of the cloude, saienge: This is my deare sonne, in whom I delyte, heare him. Matthew 17:6 Whan ye disciples herde that, they fell vpon their faces, and were sore afrayed. Matthew 17:7 But Iesus came and touched them, and sayde: Aryse, and be not afrayed. Matthew 17:8 And whan they loked vp, they sawe no man, but Iesus onely. Matthew 17:9 And wha they came downe fro ye mountayne, Iesus charged them, and sayde: Tell no man of this vision, tyll the sonne of man be rysen agayne from ye deed. Matthew 17:10 And his disciples axed him, and sayde: Why saye the scrybes then, that Elias must first come? Matthew 17:11 Iesus answered and sayde vnto them: Elias shall come first in dede, and bringe all thinges to right agayne. Matthew 17:12 But I saye vnto you: Elias is come all ready, & they knewe him not, but haue done vnto him what they wolde. Eue so shal also the sonne of man suffre of them. Matthew 17:13 Then the disciples perceaued, that he spake vnto them of Ihon the baptist.

Matthew 17:14 And whan they were come to the people, there came vnto him a certayne man, and kneled vnto him, and sayde: Matthew 17:15 LORDE, haue mercy vpon my sonne, for he is lunatike, & sore vexed. He falleth oft tymes in to ye fyre, and oft in to ye water: Matthew 17:16 and I brought him vnto thy disciples, and they coude not heale him. Matthew 17:17 Iesus answered, and sayde: O thou faithles and frowarde generacion, how longe shal I be with you? How longe shal I suffre you? Bringe him hither to me. Matthew 17:18 And Iesus rebuked him, and ye deuyll wete out of him, and ye childe was healed, euen that same houre. Matthew 17:19 Then came the disciples vnto Iesus secretly, & sayde: Why coude not we cast him out? Matthew 17:20 Iesus sayde vnto them: Because of youre vnbeleue. For I saye verely vnto you? Yf ye haue faith as a grane of mustarde sede, ye maye saye vnto this mountayne: Remoue hence to yonder place, and he shal remoue, nether shal enythinge be vnpossible vnto you.
