1Then Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God arrive with power.”1And Jesus was saying to them, "Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power."
2After six days, Jesus took with Him Peter, James, and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There He was transfigured before them.2Six days later, Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John, and brought them up on a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them;
3His clothes became radiantly white, brighter than any launderer on earth could bleach them.3and His garments became radiant and exceedingly white, as no launderer on earth can whiten them.
4And Elijah and Moses appeared before them, talking with Jesus.4Elijah appeared to them along with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus.
5Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”5Peter said to Jesus, "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three tabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
6For they were all so terrified that Peter did not know what else to say.6For he did not know what to answer; for they became terrified.
7Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is My beloved Son. Listen to Him!”7Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, "This is My beloved Son, listen to Him!"

9As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus admonished them not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.9As they were coming down from the mountain, He gave them orders not to relate to anyone what they had seen, until the Son of Man rose from the dead.
10So they kept this matter to themselves, discussing what it meant to rise from the dead.10They seized upon that statement, discussing with one another what rising from the dead meant.
11And they asked Jesus, “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”11They asked Him, saying, "Why is it that the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
12He replied, “Elijah does indeed come first, and he restores all things. Why then is it written that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected?12And He said to them, "Elijah does first come and restore all things. And yet how is it written of the Son of Man that He will suffer many things and be treated with contempt?
13But I tell you that Elijah has indeed come, and they have done to him whatever they wished, just as it is written about him.”13"But I say to you that Elijah has indeed come, and they did to him whatever they wished, just as it is written of him."
14When they returned to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them, and scribes arguing with them.14When they came back to the disciples, they saw a large crowd around them, and some scribes arguing with them.
15As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were filled with awe and ran to greet Him.15Immediately, when the entire crowd saw Him, they were amazed and began running up to greet Him.
16“What are you disputing with them?” He asked.16And He asked them, "What are you discussing with them?"
17Someone in the crowd replied, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a spirit that makes him mute.17And one of the crowd answered Him, "Teacher, I brought You my son, possessed with a spirit which makes him mute;
18Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. I asked Your disciples to drive it out, but they were unable.”18and whenever it seizes him, it slams him to the ground and he foams at the mouth, and grinds his teeth and stiffens out. I told Your disciples to cast it out, and they could not do it."
19“O unbelieving generation!” Jesus replied. “How long must I remain with you? How long must I put up with you? Bring the boy to Me.”19And He answered them and said, "O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to Me!"
20So they brought him, and seeing Jesus, the spirit immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.20They brought the boy to Him. When he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into a convulsion, and falling to the ground, he began rolling around and foaming at the mouth.

23“If You can?” echoed Jesus. “All things are possible to him who believes!”23And Jesus said to him, "'If You can?' All things are possible to him who believes."
24Immediately the boy’s father cried out, “I do believe; help my unbelief!”24Immediately the boy's father cried out and said, "I do believe; help my unbelief."
25When Jesus saw that a crowd had come running, He rebuked the unclean spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” He said, “I command you to come out and never enter him again.”25When Jesus saw that a crowd was rapidly gathering, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You deaf and mute spirit, I command you, come out of him and do not enter him again."
26After shrieking and convulsing him violently, the spirit came out. The boy became like a corpse, so that many said, “He is dead.”26After crying out and throwing him into terrible convulsions, it came out; and the boy became so much like a corpse that most of them said, "He is dead!"
27But Jesus took him by the hand and helped him to his feet, and he stood up.27But Jesus took him by the hand and raised him; and he got up.
28After Jesus had gone into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”28When He came into the house, His disciples began questioning Him privately, "Why could we not drive it out?"
29Jesus answered, “This kind cannot come out, except by prayer.”29And He said to them, "This kind cannot come out by anything but prayer."
30Going on from there, they passed through Galilee. But Jesus did not want anyone to know,30From there they went out and began to go through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know about it.
31because He was teaching His disciples. He told them, “The Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill Him, and after three days He will rise.”31For He was teaching His disciples and telling them, "The Son of Man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and when He has been killed, He will rise three days later."
32But they did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him about it.32But they did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him.
33Then they came to Capernaum. While Jesus was in the house, He asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?”33They came to Capernaum; and when He was in the house, He began to question them, "What were you discussing on the way?"
34But they were silent, for on the way they had been arguing about which of them was the greatest.34But they kept silent, for on the way they had discussed with one another which of them was the greatest.
35Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the last of all and the servant of all.”35Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, "If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all."
36Then He had a little child stand among them. Taking the child in His arms, He said to them,36Taking a child, He set him before them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them,
37“Whoever welcomes one of these little children in My name welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes not only Me, but the One who sent Me.”37"Whoever receives one child like this in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me."
38John said to Him, “Teacher, we saw someone else driving out demons in Your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not accompany us.”38John said to Him, "Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we tried to prevent him because he was not following us."
39“Do not stop him,” Jesus replied. “For no one who performs a miracle in My name can turn around and speak evil of Me.39But Jesus said, "Do not hinder him, for there is no one who will perform a miracle in My name, and be able soon afterward to speak evil of Me.
40For whoever is not against us is for us.40"For he who is not against us is for us.

42But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the sea.42"Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea.
43If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two hands and go into hell, into the unquenchable fire.43"If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than, having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire,
