When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified. But Jesus came up to them and touched them, saying, "Get up, and stop being afraid." When they raised their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus all by himself. On their way down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, "Don't tell anyone about this vision until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead." So the disciples asked him, "Why, then, do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?" He answered them, "Elijah is indeed coming and will restore all things. But I tell you that Elijah has already come, yet people did not recognize him and treated him just as they pleased. In the same way, the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands."

Then Peter told Jesus, "Rabbi, it's good that we're here! Let's set up three shelters one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." (Peter didn't know how to respond, because they were terrified.) Then a cloud appeared and overshadowed them. A voice came out of the cloud and said, "This is my Son, whom I love. Keep on listening to him!" Suddenly, as they looked around, they saw no one with them but Jesus alone. On their way down the mountain, Jesus ordered them not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead. They kept the matter to themselves but argued about what "rising from the dead" meant. So they asked him, "Don't the scribes say that Elijah must come first?" He told them, "Elijah is indeed coming first and will restore all things. Why, then, is it written that the Son of Man must suffer a great deal and be treated shamefully? But I tell you that Elijah has come, yet people treated him just as they pleased, as it is written about him."

They had a glorified appearance, and were discussing Jesus' departure that he would shortly bring about in Jerusalem. Now Peter and the men with him had been overcome by sleep. When they woke up, they saw Jesus' glory and the two men standing with him. Just as Moses and Elijah were leaving, Peter told Jesus, "Master, it's good that we're here! Let's set up three shelters one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah." (Peter didn't know what he was saying.) But while he was saying this, a cloud appeared and surrounded them, and they became terrified as they were being overshadowed by the cloud. Then a voice came out of the cloud and said, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen. Keep listening to him!" After the voice had spoken, Jesus was alone. The disciples kept silent and at that time told no one about what they had seen.
