King James VersionMatthew17


1 And af­ter six days Je­sus taketh Pe­ter, James, and John his broth­er, and bringeth them up into an high moun­tain apart, 2 And was trans­fig­ured be­fore them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his rai­ment was white as the light. 3 And, be­hold, there ap­peared unto them Moses and Elias talk­ing with him. 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. 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. 6 And when the dis­ci­ples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7 And Je­sus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8 And when they had lift­ed up their eyes, they saw no man, save Je­sus on­ly. 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. 10 And his dis­ci­ples asked him, say­ing, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? 11 And Je­sus an­swered and said unto them, Elias tru­ly shall first come, and re­store all things. 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. 13 Then the dis­ci­ples un­der­stood that he spake unto them of John the Bap­tist. 14 And when they were come to the mul­ti­tude, there came to him a certain man, kneel­ing down to him, and say­ing, 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. 16 And I brought him to thy dis­ci­ples, and they could not cure him. 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. 18 And Je­sus re­buked the dev­il; and he de­part­ed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the dis­ci­ples to Je­sus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Je­sus said unto them, Be­cause of your un­be­lief: for ver­i­ly I 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. 21 How­beit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fast­ing. 22 And while they abode in Galilee, Je­sus said unto them, The Son of man shall be be­trayed into the hands of men: 23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were ex­ceed­ing sor­ry. 24 And when they were come to Ca­per­naum, they that re­ceived trib­ute money came to Pe­ter, and said, Doth not your mas­ter pay trib­ute? 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? 26 Pe­ter saith unto him, Of strangers. Je­sus saith unto him, Then are the chil­dren free. 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.
