The transfiguration of Christ.
Matthew 17:1 And after sixe dayes, Iesus tooke Peter, and Iames and Iohn his brother, and brought them vp into an hie mountaine apart, Matthew 17:2 And was trasfigured before them: and his face did shine as the Sunne, and his clothes were as white as the light. Matthew 17:3 And beholde, there appeared vnto them Moses, and Elias, talking with him. Matthew 17:4 Then answered Peter, and saide to Iesus, Master, it is good for vs to be here: if thou wilt, let vs make here three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. Matthew 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloude shadowed them: and beholde, there came a voyce out of the cloude, saying, This is that my beloued Sonne, in whom I am wel pleased: heare him. Matthew 17:6 And when the disciples heard that, they fell on their faces, and were sore afraide. Matthew 17:7 Then Iesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraide. Matthew 17:8 And when they lifted vp their eyes, they sawe no man, saue Iesus onely. Matthew 17:9 And as they came downe from the moutaine, Iesus charged them, saying, Shewe the vision to no man, vntil the Sonne of man rise againe from the dead. Matthew 17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the Scribes that Elias must first come? Matthew 17:11 And Iesus answered, and saide vnto them, Certeinely Elias must first come, and restore all thinges. Matthew 17:12 But I say vnto you that Elias is come alreadie, and they knewe him not, but haue done vnto him whatsoeuer they would: likewise shal also the Sonne of man suffer of them. Matthew 17:13 Then the disciples perceiued that he spake vnto them of Iohn Baptist.
He healeth the lunatick,
Matthew 17:14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certaine man, and fell downe at his feete, Matthew 17:15 And saide, Master, haue pitie on my sonne: for he is lunatike, and is sore vexed: for oft times he falleth into the fire, & oft times into the water. Matthew 17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not heale him. Matthew 17:17 Then Iesus answered, and said, O generation faithlesse, and crooked, how long now shall I be with you! Howe long nowe shall I suffer you! Bring him hither to me. Matthew 17:18 And Iesus rebuked the deuill, and he went out of him: and the childe was healed at that houre. Matthew 17:19 Then came the disciples to Iesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? Matthew 17:20 And Iesus said vnto them, Because of your vnbeliefe: for verely I say vnto you, if ye haue faith as much as is a graine of mustarde seede, ye shall say vnto this mountaine, Remooue hence to yonder place, and it shall remoue: and nothing shalbe vnpossible vnto you. Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kinde goeth not out, but by prayer and fasting.
foretelleth his own passion,
Matthew 17:22 And they being in Galile, Iesus said vnto them, The Sonne of man shall be deliuered into the handes of men, Matthew 17:23 And they shall kill him, but the thirde day shall he rise againe: and they were very sorie.
and payeth tribute.
Matthew 17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that receiued polle money, came to Peter, and sayd, Doeth not your Master pay polle money? Matthew 17:25 He sayd, Yes; when he was come into the house, Iesus preuented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? Of whome doe the Kings of the earth take tribute, or polle money? of their children, or of strangers? Matthew 17:26 Peter sayd vnto him, Of strangers. Then said Iesus vnto him, Then are the children free. Matthew 17:27 Neuerthelesse, lest we should offend them: goe to the sea, and cast in an angle, and take the first fish that commeth vp, and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt finde a piece of twentie pence: that take, and giue it vnto them for me and thee.
