Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1And He said to them, Truly, I say to you, That there are some of those standing here who shall not taste of death until they see the kingdom of God having come in (with) power.

2And after six days, Jesus takes with Him, Peter and James and John and brings them up into a high mountain by themselves alone. And He was transfigured (transformed, latin-transfiguratus) before them; 3And His garments (outer garments) became shining (gleaming) exceedingly (very) white (bright), such as no launderer upon the earth is able to thus whiten. 4And Elijah with Moses appeared to them, and they were talking with Jesus. 5And Peter answering, says to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. And let us mane three tabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. 6For he did not know what he should answer; for they were terrified. 7And there came a cloud overshadowing (shadowing upon) them and there came a voice from out of the cloud, This is My beloved Son: listen to Him. 8And suddenly, having looked around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with themselves,

9And they were descending from the mountain, He expressly charged them that they should thoroughly relate to no one what they had seen, except when the Son of Man had risen from out of the dead. 10And they kept that word to themselves, discussing (seeking) together what to rise up from out of the dead was. 11And they asked Him, saying, The scribes say that it is necessary for Elijah to come first? 12And He said to them, Elijah indeed, having come first, restores all things; and how it has been written upon the Son of Man, so that He should suffer many things and be treated with contempt (despised, ignored, rejected, brought to nothing)? 13But I say to you, that Elijah also has come and they did to him whatever they wanted, just as it has been written of (upon) him.

14And having come to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and the scribes disputing (examining, discussing, seeking) together with them. 15And directly all the crowd having seen Him were greatly astonished and running to Him, greeted Him. 16And He asked them, What are you disputing together with them? 17And one from out of the crowd answered Him, Teacher, I brought my son to You, having a spirit [that makes him] mute; 18And whenever it overtakes (seizes, lays hold of) him, it throws him down; and he foams at the mouth and gnashes his teeth and he is withering (wasting) away. and I spoke to Your disciples, so that they might cast it out and they were not able (strong). 19And He answering them, says, O unbelieving generation! Until when will I be with you? Until when will I bear with you? Bring him to Me. 20And they brought him to Him. And the spirit having seen Him directly threw him into convulsions and having fallen upon the ground, he rolled, foaming at the mouth. 21And He asked his father, How long a time is it that this has been with him? And he said, From out of childhood. 22And it often throws him into fire and into waters, so that it might destroy him. But if you are able to do anything, have compassion (visceral affections including sympathy) upon us, help us. 23And Jesus said to him, If you are able, all things are possible (able) to the one believing. 24Directly having cried out, the father of the child said, I believe, help my unbelief! 25And Jesus having seen that a crowd was running together upon, He censured the unclean spirit, saying to it, Mute and deaf spirit, I command you, Come out of him, and you may no longer enter into him. 26And having cried out and having thrown him into many convulsions it came out; and he became as if dead, so that many said that he was dead. 27And Jesus, having taken him by the hand, raised him up and he arose. 28And He having entered into a house, His disciples asked Him in private, Why were we not able to cast it out? 29And He said to them, This kind is not able to go out (come out) in nothing except in prayer {and fasting}.

30Having gone out from there, they passed through Galilee; and He did not want that anyone should know, 31For He was teaching His disciples and said to them, The Son of Man is handed over into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and having been killed, with (after) three days, He will arise. 32However they did not know the saying (rhema) and were fearful to ask Him.

33And He came unto Capernaum; and having been in the house, He asked them, What were you reckoning (considering, discussing) on the way? 34And they were silent with one another for they had been conversing on the way, who was greatest. 35And having sat down, He called the twelve, and He says to them, If anyone wants to be first, he will be last of all and a servant (diakonos, minister) of all. 36And having been a child, he set it in their midst; and having taken it in His arms, He said to them, 37Whoever shall welcomingly receive one of such little children upon My name, welcomingly receives Me; and whoever shall welcomingly receive Me, does not welcomingly receive Me, but the One having sent Me.

38John said to Him, Teacher, we saw someone in Your name casting out demons, {who does not follow us} and we forbade him, because he was not following us. 39And Jesus said, Do not forbid him. For there is no one who will do a miracle (work of power) upon My name and be able to readily speak evil of Me. 40For whoever is not against us is for us. 41For whoever might give you a cup of water to drink in [My] name because you are Christ’s, truly, I say to you, that he should not lose his reward.

42And whoever might cause one of these little ones believing unto Me to stumble, it is better (kalon-good) for him rather if a donkeys (heavy) millstone is put around his neck and he has been cast into the sea. 43And if your hand should cause you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life crippled, than having two hands to go away into hell (greek- geennan, latin-gehennam), into unquenchable (inextinguishable) fire, 44{where their gnawing worm does not end, and the fire is not quenched}. 45And if your foot should cause you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life lame, than having two feet to be cast into hell (gehenna), {into the unquenchable fire}, 46{where their gnawing worm does not end, and the fire is not quenched}. 47And if you eye should cause you to stumble, cast it out ; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye than having two eyes to be cast into hell (gehenna), 48Where their gnawing worm does not end and the fire is not quenched.

49For everyone will be salted with fire, {and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt}. 50Salt is good, however if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you season (flavor) it? Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with (in) one another.
