And after six days Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John, and brought them up alone into a high mountain privately. And He was transfigured before them,
And His garments became sparkling, exceedingly white, such as no fuller on earth could whiten them.
And Elijah with Moses appeared to them, and they were conversing with Jesus.
And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tents, one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah.
For he did not know what to answer, for they had become extremely frightened.
And a cloud appeared, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud: This is My Son, the Beloved. Hear Him!
And suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone, but Jesus only with them.
And as they were coming down from the mountain, He ordered them not to relate to anyone the things which they had seen, except when the Son of Man has risen from the dead.
And they kept the word, discussing among themselves what rising from the dead was.
And they asked Him, saying, Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?
And He said to them, Elijah does indeed come first and restore all things. And how is it that it is written of the Son of Man that He should suffer many things and be counted as nothing?
But I tell you that Elijah has indeed come, and they did to him the things that they wished, even as it is written of him.
