17:1 And after six days Jesus takes with him Peter and James and John his brother, and leads them up into a high mountain apart.
2 And he was transfigured before them; and his face shone as the sun, and his garments became white as light.
3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah talking with him.
4 And Peter answered and said to Jesus: Lord, it is good that we are here; if thou wiltest I will make here three tents, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
5 While he was yet speaking, behold, a cloud of light overshadowed them; and lo, a voice from the cloud saying: This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased: hear him.
6 And hearing it the disciples fell on their face and were greatly afraid.
7 And Jesus came forward, and touching them said: Arise and be not afraid.
8 But when they had lifted up their eyes they saw no one but Jesus only.
9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying: Tell the vision to no one till the Son of man shall have risen from the dead.
10 And the disciples asked him, saying: Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must first come?
11 He answered and said: Elijah indeed comes; and he will restore all things.
12 But I say to you, that Elijah has already come, and they knew him not, but did to him what they pleased. So also shall the Son of man suffer by them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them of John the Baptist.
14 And when they came to the multitude, there came to him a man kneeling to him,
15 and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic, and suffers grievously; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water.
16 And I brought him to thy disciples and they were not able to cure him.
17 And Jesus answered and said, O generation unbelieving and perverse, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you; Bring him hither to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the child was cured from that hour.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said: Why were we not able to cast it out?
20 He said to them: Because of your little faith; for verily I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard, you shall say to this mountain: Be removed hence to that place, and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible for you.
21 [no verse]
22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said to them: The Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men,
23 and they shall kill him, and on the third day he shall arise. And they were very sad.
24 And when they came into Capernaum, they that collected the didrachma came to Peter and said: Does your teacher pay the didrachma?
25 He said: Yes. And after he had come into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying: What think you, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth collect tribute or custom? From their own sons, or from those of others?
26 And when he had said: From those of others; Jesus said to him: Then are the sons free.
27 But that we may not offend them, go to the sea, and throw in a hook, and take the fish that first comes up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a stater: take that and give it to them for me and thee.
