The Transfiguration of Jesus, Moses and Elias - Matthew 17

And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and  John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high  mountain apart. Matthew 17:1  KJV

Matthew 17:2 And was transfigured before them:  and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white  as the light. 

Matthew 17:3 And, behold, there appeared unto them  Moses and Elias talking with him. 

Matthew 17:4 Then answered  Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here:  if thou wilt, let us 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 cloud overshadowed them: and  behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my  beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.  

Matthew 17:6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their  face, and were sore afraid. 

Matthew 17:7 And Jesus came and  touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 

Matthew 17:8  And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man,  save Jesus only. 

Matthew 17:9 And as they came down from the  mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no  man, until the Son of man be risen again 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 Jesus  answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come,  and restore all things. 

Matthew 17:12 But I say unto you, That  Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have  done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also  the Son of man suffer of them. 

Matthew 17:13 Then the disciples  understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.  

Matthew 17:14 And when they were come to the multitude, there  came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and  saying, 

Matthew 17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is  lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire,  and oft into the water. 

Matthew 17:16 And I brought him to thy  disciples, and they could not cure him. 

Matthew 17:17 Then Jesus  answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how  long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring  him hither to me. 

Matthew 17:18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and  he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that  very hour. 

Matthew 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart,  and said, Why could not we cast him out? 

Matthew 17:20 And  Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I    Page 569 
Matthew   say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye  shall say unto this 
mountain, Remove hence to yonder  place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible  unto you. 

Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by  prayer and fasting.   

Matthew 17:22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto  them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of  men: 

Matthew 17:23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he  shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.  

Matthew 17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they  that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth  not your master pay tribute? 

Matthew 17:25 He saith, Yes. And  when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him,  saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings  of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or  of strangers? 

Matthew 17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers.  Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. 

Matthew 17:27  Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the  sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh  up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a  piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and  thee.
