9:1 And he said to them: Verily I say to you that there are some of those standing here, who shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God coming in power.
2 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter, and James, and John, and led them up into a high mountain apart by themselves; and he was transfigured before them;
3 And his clothing became shining, very white, as no fuller on earth can whiten.
4 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses; and they were conversing with Jesus.
5 And Peter answering said to Jesus: Rabbi, it is good that we are here, and let us make three tents, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
6 For he knew not what he should answer; for they were greatly afraid.
7 And there came a cloud overshadowing them; and there came a voice from the cloud: This is my beloved Son, hear him.
8 And suddenly looking around they no longer saw any one but Jesus alone with themselves.
9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no one what things they had seen, unless when the Son of man should have risen from the dead.
10 And they kept the saying among themselves, inquiring what to rise from the dead is.
11 And they asked him, saying: Why say the Pharisees and the scribes that Elijah must first come?
12 And he said to them: Elijah coming first restores all things. And how is it written of the Son of man? that he must suffer many things, and be set at naught.
13 But I say to you that Elijah also has come, and they have done to him what things they wished, as it is written of him.
14 And coming to the disciples, they saw a great multitude about them, and scribes disputing with them.
15 And immediately all the multitude seeing him were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
16 And he asked them: Why are you disputing with them?
17 And one from the multitude answered him: Teacher, I brought to thee my son that has a dumb spirit.
18 And wherever he seizes him he throws him down; and he foams and gnashes with his teeth and pines away; and I spoke to thy disciples that they would cast him out, and they were not able.
19 And he answered and said to them: O faithless 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 when he saw him, the spirit immediately threw him into convulsions, and he fell upon the ground, and rolled foaming.
21 And he asked his father: How long is it since this came on him? He replied: From a child;
22 And he has often thrown him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if in any way thou canst, have pity on us and help us.
23 But Jesus said to him: What is this “If thou canst”? All things are possible to him that believes.
24 The father of the child immediately crying out said: I believe; help thou my unbelief.
25 But Jesus, seeing that the multitude was running together, rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to him: Dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 And after crying out and throwing him into strong convulsions he came out; and he became like one dead, so that many said: He is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.
28 And when he came into the house, his disciples asked him privately: Why were we not able to cast him out?
29 And he said to them: This kind can come out by nothing but by prayer.
30 And going out thence they passed along through Galilee, and he wished that no one should know it;
31 For he taught his disciples and said to them that 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 after three days.
32 But they understood not the saying, and were afraid to ask him.
33 And they came into Capernaum. And when he was in the house he asked them: About what were you disputing on the way?
34 But they were silent; for they had disputed one with another on the way who was greatest.
35 And he sat down and called the twelve, and said to them: If any one will be first, he shall be last of all and minister of all.
36 And he took a little child and set him in the midst of them, and took him in his arms and said to them:
37 Whoever shall receive one of these little children in my name, receives me; and whoever shall receive me, receives not me, but him that sent me.
38 John said to him: Teacher, we saw one casting out demons in thy name, and he follows not us; and we forbade him, because he follows not us.
39 But Jesus said: Forbid him not; for there is no one who shall do a mighty deed in my name, and be able hastily to speak evil of me;
40 For he that is not against us, is for us.
41 For whoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because you are Christ’s, verily I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.
42 And whoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe, it were better for him if an upper millstone were hung about his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.
43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go away into hell, into the unquenchable fire.
45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life lame, than having two feet to be thrown into hell.
47 And if thy eye offend thee, pull it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be thrown into hell,
48 Where their worm dies not and the fire is not quenched.
49 For every one shall be salted with fire.
50 Salt is good; but if the salt become saltless, by what means will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace one with another.
