18. Being Transfigured on the Mount
2 1And after six days Jesus atook with Him bPeter and James and John, and brought them up alone into a high mountain privately. And He was 2ctransfigured before them,
3 And His garments became asparkling, exceedingly bwhite, such as no fuller on earth could whiten them.
4 And Elijah with Moses appeared to them, and they were conversing with Jesus.
5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, aRabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three btents, one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah.
6 For he did anot know what to answer, for they had become extremely frightened.
7 And a acloud appeared, overshadowing them, and a bvoice came out of the cloud: This is My Son, the cBeloved. dHear Him!
8 And suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone, but Jesus only with them.
9 And as they were acoming down from the mountain, He ordered them 1not to relate to banyone the things which they had seen, except when the Son of Man has crisen from the dead.
10 And they kept the word, discussing among themselves what rising from the dead was.
11 And they asked Him, saying, Why do the scribes say that aElijah must come first?
12 And He said to them, Elijah does indeed come first and arestore all things. And how is it that it is bwritten of the Son of Man that He should csuffer many things and be dcounted as nothing?
13 But I tell you that aElijah has 1indeed come, and they did to him the things that they wished, even as it is written of him.
