The Transfiguration of Jesus – Mark 9

Mark 9:1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That  there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste  of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with  power. 

Mark 9:2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter,  and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high  mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured  before them. 

Mark 9:3 And his raiment became shining,  exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white  them. 

Mark 9:4 And there appeared unto them Elias with  Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 

Mark 9:5 And Peter  answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be  here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and  one for Moses, and one for Elias. 

Mark 9:6 For he wist not  what to say; for they were sore afraid. 

Mark 9:7 And there was  a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of  the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 

Mark 9:8  And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw  no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves. 

Mark 9:9  And as they came down from the mountain, he charged  them that they should tell no man what things they had seen,  till the Son of man were risen from the dead. 

Mark 9:10 And  they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one with  another what the rising from the dead should mean. 

Gospel of Mark

Mark 9:11  And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias  must first come? 

Mark 9:12 And he answered and told them,  Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it  is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many  things, and be set at nought. 

Mark 9:13 But I say unto you, That  Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him  whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.  

Mark 9:14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a  great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with  them. 

Mark 9:15 And straightway all the people, when they  beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him  saluted him. 

Mark 9:16 And he asked the scribes, What  question ye with them? 

Mark 9:17 And one of the multitude  answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my  son, which hath a dumb spirit; 

Mark 9:18 And wheresoever he  taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth  with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples  that they should cast him out; and they could not. 

Mark 9:19 He  answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long  shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him  unto me. 

Mark 9:20 And they brought him unto him: and when  he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on  the ground, and wallowed foaming. 

Mark 9:21 And he asked  his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him?  And he said, Of a child. 

Mark 9:22 And ofttimes it hath cast  him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if  thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help  us. 

Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all  things are possible to him that believeth. 

Mark 9:24 And  straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with  tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 

Mark 9:25  When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he  rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and  deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no  more into him. 

Mark 9:26 And the spirit cried, and rent him  sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead;  insomuch that many said, He is dead. 

Mark 9:27 But Jesus took  him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. 

Mark 9:28  And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked  him privately, Why could not we cast him out? 

Mark 9:29 And  he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but  by prayer and fasting.  

Mark 9:30 And they departed thence, and passed through  Galilee; and he would not that any man should know it.  

Mark 9:31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The  Son of man is delivered into the hands of men, and they  shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the  third day. 

Mark 9:32 But they understood not that saying, and  were afraid to ask him. 

Mark 9:33 And he came to Capernaum:  and being in the house he asked them, What was it that ye  disputed among yourselves by the way? 

Mark 9:34 But they  held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among  themselves, who should be the greatest. 

Mark 9:35 And he sat  down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any  man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and  servant of all. 

Mark 9:36 And he took a child, and set him in the  midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he  said unto them, 

Mark 9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such  children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall  receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.  

Mark 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw  one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us:  and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. 

Mark 9:39 But  Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall  do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.  

Mark 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part. 

Mark 9:41  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my  name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he  shall not lose his reward. 

Mark 9:42 And whosoever shall  offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is  better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,  and he were cast into the sea. 

Mark 9:43 And if thy hand offend  thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed,  than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that  never shall be quenched: 

Mark 9:44 Where their worm dieth  not, and the fire is not quenched. 

Mark 9:45 And if thy foot  offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into  life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire  that never shall be quenched: 

Mark 9:46 Where their worm  dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 

Mark 9:47 And if thine  eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into  the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to  be cast into hell fire: 

Mark 9:48 Where their worm dieth not,  and the fire is not quenched. 

Mark 9:49 For every one shall be  salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.   

Mark 9:50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness,  wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and  have peace one with another.
