1 And He said unto them, Verily I tell you, that there are some of those who stand here, that shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
2 And after six days Jesus taketh with Him Peter, and James, and John, and bringeth them up by themselves to a high mountain apart; and was transfigured before them: 3 and his raiment shone, being exceeding white as snow, so as no fuller on earth can whiten. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.
5 Then said Peter to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: let us make three tabernacles; one for Thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: 6 for he knew not what to say, for they were sore afraid.
7 And there was a cloud overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, hear ye Him.
8 And immediately looking round about, they saw no more of any one, but Jesus alone with them.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, He charged them to tell no one what they had seen, till after the Son of man were risen from the dead. 10 And they laid hold on that expression, querying among themselves, what means the rising from the dead?
11 Then they asked Him, saying, Why do the scribes say, that Elias must come first?
12 And He answered and told them, Elias doth indeed come first, and settle all things: He told them likewise how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things and be used contemptuously. 13 But I tell you, that Elias is come, and they have done to him whatever they would, as it is written of him.
14 And when He came to the other disciples, He saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes disputing with them. 15 And immediately all the people, when they saw Him, were astonished; and running to Him, saluted Him. 16 And he asked the scribes, What are ye disputing about?
17 And one of the multitude answered, and said, Master I have brought unto thee my son, who is possessed by a dumb spirit: 18 and wherever it seizeth him, it convulseth him; and he fometh, and gnasheth his teeth, and thus he pineth away: and I desired thy disciples to cast him out, and they could not.
19 And He answered and said, O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him to me. 20 And they brought him to Him: and as soon as he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into convulsions: and he fell upon the ground, and rolled about foming. 21 And He asked his father, How long is it since this befel him? And he said, From a child. 22 And it has often thrown him both into the fire and into the waters to destroy him. But if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us and help us.
23 And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
24 And the father of the child immediately cried out and said with tears, Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief.
25 when Jesus saw the people flock together, He rebuked the impure spirit, and said to him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, Come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 And when he had rored and vehemently convulsed him, he came out of him: and the child was as one dead, so that many said, that he was dead. 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.
28 And when He was come into the house, his disciples asked Him in private, Why could not we cast him out?
29 And He said unto them, This kind cannot be cast out, but by prayer and fasting.
30 And they departed from thence and passed through Galilee, and He was not willing that any should know it; 31 for He was instructing his disciples, and told them, the Son of man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will put Him to death; and on the third day, after his being put to death, He will rise again. 32 But they knew not his meaning, and were afraid to ask Him.
33 And he came to Capernaum; and when He was in the house, He asked them, What were ye disputing about among yourselves by the way? 34 But they held their peace; for they had been disputing with each other by the way who should be the greatest. 35 So He sat down and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any one would be first, let him be last of all, and servant of all. 36 And He took a child and set him in the midst of them, and taking him in his arms He said unto them, 37 Whoever shall receive one of these little children in my name, receiveth me; and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth not me only, but Him that sent me.
38 But John answered Him and said, Master, we saw one casting out demons in thy name, who doth not follow us; and we forbade him, because he followeth not us.
39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no one, that worketh a miracle in my name, and can presently speak evil of me: 40 for he that is not against us, is for us. 41 For whosoever shall give you but a cup of water to drink, for my sake; because ye are Christ's, I assure you, he shall not lose his reward.
42 And whosoever shall cause one of these little ones, that believe in me, to offend, it were better for him, if a milstone were laid upon his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43 And if thy hand cause thee to offend, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands, to go into hell, into the fire that will never be extinguished; 44 where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
45 And if thy foot cause thee to offend, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life lame, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the inextinguishable fire; 46 where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
47 And if thine eye cause thee to offend, cast it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell-fire; 48 where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
49 For every one shall be as it were salted by fire, and every sacrifice shall be seasoned as with salt. 50 Salt is useful, but if the salt become insipid, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt therefore in yourselves, and as a proof of it be at peace one with another.
