§ 24Mk. 9, 1.1And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There be here now some standing that shall not taste death, until they see the kingdom of God come7 with strength, and the Son of man who cometh in his kingdom.Mt. 16, 28b.
Mt. 17, 1.Lk. 9, 29a.Mt. 17, 2b.Lk. 9, 29b.Mk. 9, 3b.Mk. 9, 4.Lk. 9, 31b.Lk. 9, 32.2And after six days Jesus took Simon Cephas, and James, and John his brother,3 and brought them up into a high mountain, the three of them only. And while they4 were praying, Jesus changed, and became after the fashion of another person; and his face shone like the sun, and his raiment was very white like the snow, and as5 the light of lightning, so that nothing on earth can whiten8 like it. And there appeared6 unto him Moses and Elijah talking to Jesus. And they thought that the time7 of his decease which was to be accomplished at Jerusalem was come. And Simon and those that were with him were heavy in the drowsiness of sleep; and with effort they roused themselves, and saw his glory, and those two men that were standing with him.8 And when they began to depart from him,Arabic, p. 93 Simon said unto Jesus, My9 Master, it is good for us to be here: and if thou wilt, we will make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah;Lk. 9, 33a.Mt. 17, 4b.Lk. 9, 33c.Mk. 9, 6b.Mt. 17, 5a.Lk. 9, 34b.Mt. 17, 5b. not knowing10 what he said, because of the fear which took possession of them. And while he11 was yet saying that, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And when they saw Moses12 and Elijah that they had entered into that cloud, they feared again. And a voice was heard out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, whom I have chosen;13 hear ye therefore him. And when this voice was heard, Jesus was found alone.Lk. 9, 36a.Mt. 17, 6.Mt. 17, 7.Mt. 17, 8.Mt. 17, 9.14 And the disciples, when they heard the voice, fell on their faces from the fear which15 took hold of them. And Jesus came and touched them and said, Arise, be not16 afraid. And they lifted up their eyes, and saw Jesus as he was.
17And when they went down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, and said unto them, Tell not what ye have seen to any man, until the Son of man rise from18 among the dead. And they kept the word within themselves,Mk. 9, 10a.Lk. 9, 36c. and told no man in 19those days what they had seen. And they reflected among themselves,Mk. 9, 10b.Mk. 9, 11a.Mt. 17, 10b.Mk. 9, 12. What is this20 word which he spake unto us, I, when I am risen from among the dead? And his disciples asked him, and said, What is that which the scribes say, then, that Elijah21 must first come? He said unto them, Elijah cometh first to set in order everything, and as it was written of the Son of man, that he should suffer many things,22 and be rejected.Arabic, p. 94 But I say unto you, that Elijah is come,Mk. 9, 13. and they knew him not, and have done unto him whatsoever they desired, as it was written of him.Mt. 17, 12b.Mt. 17, 13.23, 24 In like manner the Son of man is to suffer of them. Then understood the disciples that he spake unto them concerning John the Baptist.
Mk. 9, 14.25And on that day whereon they came down from the mountain, there met him a multitude of many people standing with his disciples, and the scribes were discussing26 with them. And the people, when they saw Jesus, were perplexed,1Mk. 9, 15.Lk. 13, 31. and in the27 midst of their joy hastened2 and saluted him. And on that day came certain of the Pharisees, and said unto him, Get thee out, and go hence; for Herod seeketh28 to kill thee. Jesus said unto them, Go ye and say to this fox, Behold,Lk. 13, 32. I am casting out demons, and I heal to-day and to-morrow, and on the third day I am perfected.29 Nevertheless I must be watchful3 to-day and to-morrow,Lk. 13, 33. and on the last day I shall depart; for it cannot be that a prophet perish outside of Jerusalem.
Lk. 9, 38a.Mt. 17, 14b.Lk. 9, 38b.Lk. 9, 39a.Mt. 17, 15b.Mk. 9, 18a.Mt. 17, 15c.Lk. 9, 39c.Mt. 17, 16.Mt. 17, 17.30And after that, there came to him a man from that multitude, and fell upon his knees, and said unto him, I beseech thee, my Lord, look upon my son; he is my31 only child: and the spirit cometh upon him suddenly. A lunacy4 hath come upon32 him, and he meeteth with evils. And when it cometh upon him, it beateth him about;533 and he foameth, and gnasheth his teeth, and wasteth;6 and many times it hath thrown him into the water and into the fire to destroy him, and it hardly leaveth him after34 bruising him.Arabic, p. 95 And I brought him near to thy disciples, and they could35 not heal him. Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, till when shall I be with you? and till when shall I bear with you? bring thy son36 hither. And he brought him unto him: and when the spirit saw him,Mk. 9, 20.Mk. 9, 21. immediately37 it beat him about; and he fell upon the ground, and was raging and foaming. And Jesus asked his father, How long is the time during which he hath been thus? He38 said unto him, From his youth until now. But, my Lord,Mk. 9, 22b.Mk. 9, 23.Mk. 9, 24.Mk. 9, 25. help me wherein thou39 canst, and have mercy upon me. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe! All40 things are possible to him that believeth. And immediately the father of the child41 cried out, weeping, and said, I believe, my Lord; help my lack of faith. And when Jesus saw the hastening of the people, and their coming at the sound, he rebuked that unclean spirit, and said to it, Thou dumb7 spirit that speakest not, I command42 thee,8 come out of him, and enter not again into him. And that spirit, devil,9Mk. 9, 26. cried out much, and bruised him, and came out; and that child fell as one dead, and43 many thought that he had died. But Jesus took him by his hand,Mk. 9, 27a.Lk. 9, 42b.Mt. 17, 18b.Lk. 9, 43a. and raised him44 up, and gave him to his father; and that child was healed from that hour. And the people all marvelled at the greatness of God.
Mk. 9, 28.Mt. 17, 20.45And when Jesus entered into the house, his disciples came, and asked him46 privately,10 and said unto him, Why were we not able to heal him? Jesus said unto them,Arabic, p. 96 Because of your unbelief. Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say to this mountain, Remove hence;47 and it shall remove; and nothing shall overcome you.Mk. 9, 29b. But it is impossible to cast out this kind by anything except by fasting and prayer.
Mk. 9, 30.Mk. 9, 31a.Lk. 9, 44a.Mk. 9, 31b.48And when he went forth thence, they passed through Galilee; and he would not49 that any man should know it.11 And he taught his disciples, and said unto them,50 Keep ye these sayings in your ears and your hearts: for the Son of man is to be delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and when he is killed, he51 shall rise on the third day. But they knew not the word which he spake unto them,Lk. 9, 45. for it was concealed from them, that they should not perceive it; and they feared to52 ask him about this word. And they were exceeding sorrowful.Mt. 17, 23b.
