The Transfiguration
(Matthew 17:1–13; Luke 9:28–36; 2 Peter 1:16–21)

1And He said to them, Truly I say unto you, that there are certain ones of those standing here, who may not taste of death, until they may see the kingdom of God, having come with power.

2After six days Jesus takes Peter, and John, and James, and carries them up into an exceedingly high mountain privately alone; and was transfigured before them: 3and His raiment became resplendent, exceedingly white like snow; as no fuller on earth is able to whiten. 4And Elijah was seen by them with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5And Peter responding says 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 Elijah: 6for he did not know what he might say; for they were afraid. 7And there was a cloud overshadowing them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear ye Him. 8And immediately looking around, they saw no one, but Jesus only with them.

9And they coming down from the mountain, He charged them, that they should relate to no one the things which they saw, until the Son of man may rise from the dead. 10And they held the word to themselves, inquiring, what it is to rise from the dead. 11And they asked Him, saying, that the scribes say, that it behooves Elijah first to come. 12He responding said to them, Elijah indeed having first come, restores all things: and how has it been written in reference to the Son of man, that he should suffer many things, and be set at naught? 13But I say unto you, that Elijah indeed has come, and they did unto him so many things as they wished, as has been written in reference to him.

The Boy with an Evil Spirit
(Matthew 17:14–18; Luke 9:37–42)

14And having come to the disciples, He saw a great multitude around them and the scribes disputing with them! 15And immediately the whole multitude, seeing Him, became excited, and running to Him, seized Him; and He asked the scribes, 16Why are you disputing with them? 17And one responding from the multitude, said, Teacher, I have brought my son to thee, having a dumb spirit. 18And when he may take him, he lacerates him: and he froths, and gnashes his teeth, and pines away. And I said to thy disciples, that they should cast him out; and they were not able. 19And He responding to them, says, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? Bring him hither to me. 20And they brought him to Him; and seeing Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him; and falling on the ground, he continued to wallow, foaming. 21And He asked his father, How long is it since this occurred to him? And he said, from childhood: 22and frequently he cast him into the fire and into the waters, in order that he may destroy him: but if you are able to do anything, assist us, being moved with compassion towards us. 23And Jesus said to him, It is this, if you are able (to believe); all things are possible to him that believeth. 24And immediately the father of the child crying out with tears, continued to say, I believe; assist thou my unbelief. 25And Jesus seeing that the multitude are running together, rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to him, Dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, come out from him, and enter no more into him. 26And crying out, and convulsing he came out. And he became like a corpse; so that many said, that, he is dead. 27And Jesus, taking him by the hand, lifted him up; and he stood up. 28And His disciples asked I Iim privately, having come into the house, Why were we not able to cast him out? 29And He said unto them, This kind is able to come out by nothing, but by prayer.

The Second Prediction of the Passion
(Matthew 17:22–23; Luke 9:43–45)

30And they coming out thence, traveled through Galilee; and He was not willing that any one should know it. 31For He was teaching His disciples, and saying to them, The Son of man is betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and having been killed, He will rise again the third day. 32And they did not understand the word, and they were afraid to ask Him.

The Greatest in the Kingdom
(Matthew 18:1–5; Luke 9:46–50)

33And He came into Capernaum. And He being in the house asked them, What were you disputing about to one another in the way? 34And they were silent: for they were disputing to one another in the way, who was the greater. 35And sitting down, He called the twelve; and says to them, If any one wishes to be first, he shall be last of all, and servant of all. 36And taking a little child, He placed it in their midst; and taking it up in His arms, He said to them,

37Whosoever may receive one of such little children in my name, receives me: and whosoever may receive me, receives not me, but Him that sent me.

38And John responded to Him saying, Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in Thy name, who does not follow us; and we forbade him, because he does not follow us. 39And Jesus said, Forbid him not. For there is no one who shall do a miracle in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me. 40For whosoever is not against us, is on our side. 41For whosoever may give you a cup of water in my name, because you are Christ's, truly I say unto you, can not lose his reward.

Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:6–9; Luke 17:1–4)

42Whosoever may offend one of these little ones who believe in me, rather is it good for him, if a millstone is hung about his neck, and he may be cast into the sea. 43And if thy hand may offend thee, cut it off: it is good for thee to go into life maimed, rather than having two hands to go away into hell, into the fire that can not be quenched. 44 45If thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is good for thee to go into life lame, rather than have two feet to be cast into hell. 46 47If thine eye may offend thee, cast it from thee: it is good for thee entering into the kingdom of God having one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell; 48where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.

Good Salt
(Matthew 5:13–16; Luke 14:34–35)

49For every one shall be salted with fire. 50Salt is good: but if the salt may become savorless, with what will you salt it? Have salt in yourselves, and live in peace with one another.
