Luke 9:33 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

As they were departing (ἐν τῷ διαχωρίζεσθαι ἀυτοὺς)

Lit., in their departing. The verb only here in New Testament. The whole sentence is peculiar to Luke's narrative.

Master

See on Luke 5:5.

Let us make

See on Matthew 17:4.

Tabernacles

See on Matthew 17:4. "Jesus might have smiled at the naive proposal of the eager apostle that they six should dwell forever in the little succo equals th of wattled boughs on the slopes of Hermon" (Farrar).

Not knowing what he said

Not implying any reproach to Peter, but merely as a mark of his bewilderment in his state of ecstasy.
