Matthew 17


17:1 And after six days, Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his
 brother, and bringeth them upon a high mountain apart.
17:2 And [he] was transfigured before them: and his face shone
 as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
17:3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah talking
 with him.
17:4 Then answered Peter, and said to 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
 Elijah.
17:5 While he was yet speaking, 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.
17:6 And when the disciples heard [it], they fell on their face,
 and were in great fear.
17:7 And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be
 not afraid.
17:8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man,
 save Jesus only.
17:9 And as they were descending the mountain, Jesus charged
 them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man
 be raised again from the dead.
17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the
 scribes, that Elijah must first come?
17:11 And Jesus answered and said to them, Elijah truly will
 first come, and restore all things:
17:12 But I say to you, that Elijah is come already, and they
 knew him not, but have done to him whatever they pleased:
 likewise will also the Son of man suffer by them.
17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them
 concerning John the Baptist.
17:14 And when they had come to the multitude, there came to him
 a [certain] man kneeling down to him, and saying,
17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son; for he is lunatic, and
 grievously distressed; for often he falleth into the fire, and
 often into the water.
17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not
 cure him.
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.
17:18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and he departed out of him:
 and the child was cured from that very hour.
17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why
 could not we cast him out?
17:20 And Jesus said to them, Because of your unbelief: for
 verily I say to you, If ye have faith as a grain of
 mustard-seed, ye shall say to this mountain, Remove hence to
 yonder place, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be
 impossible to you.
17:21 However, this kind goeth not out, but by prayer and
 fasting.
17:22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The
 Son of man will be betrayed into the hands of men:
17:23 And they will kill him, and the third day he will be
 raised again: And they were exceedingly grieved.
17:24 And when they had come to Capernaum, they that received
 tribute-[money], came to Peter, and said, Doth not your Master
 pay tribute?
17:25 He saith, Yes. And when he had come into the house, Jesus
 anticipated him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? from whom
 do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? from their
 own children, or from strangers?
17:26 Peter saith to him, From strangers. Jesus saith to him,
 Then are the children free.
17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to
 the sea, and cast a hook, and take the fish that first cometh
 up: and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a
 piece of money: take that, and give to them for me and thee.
