The transfiguration of Christ.
Matthew 17:1 And, after six days, Jesus taketh with him, Peter and James and John his brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain, apart; Matthew 17:2 and was transformed before them,and his face shone as the sun, and, his garments, became white as the light. Matthew 17:3 And lo! there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, conversing with him. Matthew 17:4 And Peter, answering, said unto JesusLord! it is, delightful, for us, to be here,If thou wilt, I will make here three tents, for thee, one, and, for Moses, one, and, for Elijah, one. Matthew 17:5 While yet he was speaking, lo! a brightly shining cloud, overshadowed them, and lo! a voice, out of the cloud, sayingThis, is, my Son, the Beloved, in whom I delight,Be hearkening to him. Matthew 17:6 And, hearing it, the disciples fell upon their face, and were caused to fear exceedingly. Matthew 17:7 And Jesus came near, and, touching them, saidArise! and be not afraid. Matthew 17:8 And, lifting up their eyes, no one, saw they, save Jesus, himself, alone. Matthew 17:9 And, as they were coming down out of the mountain, Jesus commanded them, sayingUnto no one, may ye tell the vision, until the Son of Man, from among the dead shall arise. Matthew 17:10 And the disciples questioned him, sayingWhy then do, the Scribes, say, that, Elijah, must needs come, first? Matthew 17:11 And, he, answering, saidElijah, indeed, cometh, and will restored all things; Matthew 17:12 But, I say unto youthat, Elijah, just now, came,and they recognised him not, but did with him, whatsoever they pleased: Thus, the Son of Man also, is destined to suffer by them. Matthew 17:13 Then, perceived the disciples, that, concerning John the Immerser, he spake to them.
He healeth the lunatick,
Matthew 17:14 And, when they came unto the multitude, there approached him a man, falling on his knees to him, Matthew 17:15 and sayingLord! have mercy upon my son,because he is lunatic, and in a grievous condition; For, many times, falleth he into the fire, and, many times, into the water. Matthew 17:16 And I brought him unto thy disciples, and they could not cure, him. Matthew 17:17 And Jesus, answering, saidO faithless and perverted generation! How long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him to me, here. Matthew 17:18 And Jesus rebuked it; and the demon came out of him,and cured was the boy, from that hour. Matthew 17:19 Then, the disciples, coming near, to Jesus, privately, saidWherefore could, we, not cast it out? Matthew 17:20 And, he, saith unto themBecause of your little faith. For, verily, I say unto youIf ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say to this mountain, remove hence yonder; and it shall be removed, and, nothing, shall be impossible to you. Matthew 17:21 [Absent]
foretelleth his own passion,
Matthew 17:22 And, as they were being gathered together in Galilee, Jesus said unto themThe Son of Man is about to be delivered up into the hands of men; Matthew 17:23 And they will slay him, and, on the third day, will he, arise. And they were grieved exceedingly.
and payeth tribute.
Matthew 17:24 And, when they came into Capernaum, they who, the half shekel, were receiving, came near unto Peter, and said, Your teacher, doth he not pay the half shekel? Matthew 17:25 He saithYea. And, coming into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, How, to thee, doth it seem, Simon? The kings of the earth, of whom receive they dues or tax? from their sons, or from the aliens? Matthew 17:26 And, when he said, From the aliens, Jesus said unto him, Well then, free, are the sons! Matthew 17:27 But, that we may not cause them to stumble, go unto the sea, and cast in a hook, and, the first fish that cometh up, take, and, opening its mouth, thou shalt find a shekel,that, take, and give to them for me and thee.
