Modern Literal Version - Pre-Release 2012
17:1 And after six days Jesus takes with him Peter and James and John his brother and privately brings them up into a high mountain. 17:2 And he was transformed before them, and his face shined like the sun and his garments became white like the light. 17:3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, speaking with him.
17:4 And Peter answering, said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here; if you will it, let us make three tabernacles here; one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.
17:5 While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am delighted; you* hear him.
17:6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face and were extremely afraid. 17:7 And Jesus came and touched them and said, Arise and do not be afraid. 17:8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus only.
17:9 And as they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, Tell the vision to no one, until the Son of Man has risen from the dead.
17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?
17:11 And Jesus answering, said to them, Indeed Elijah comes first and will restore all things. 17:12But I say to you* that Elijah already came and they did not know him, but did whatever they wished to him. Even so the Son of Man is also about to suffer by them. 17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them about John the Immerser*.
17:14 And when they had came to the crowd, a man came to him, kneeling down to him, saying,17:15 Lord, have mercy on my son; because he is epileptic and suffers evilly; for* he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 17:16 And I brought him to your disciples and they could not heal him.
17:17 And Jesus answering, said, O unbelieving and perverse generation, until when shall I be with you*? Until when shall I tolerate you*? Bring him here to me. 17:18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon went out of him, and the boy was healed from that hour.
17:19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, Why could we not cast it out?
17:20 And Jesus said to them, Because of your* unbelief. For* truly* I say to you*, If you* have faith like a kernel of a mustard-seed, you* will say to this mountain, Proceed from here to overthere, and it will proceed, and nothing will be impossible for you*. 17:21 But this type of demondoes not go out except by prayer and fasting.
17:22 And while they were conducting work for themselves in Galilee, Jesus said to them, The Son of Man is about to be given up into the hands of men; 17:23 and they will kill him and he will arise on the third day. And they were extremely sorry.
17:24 And when they had come to Capernaum, those who received the four-denarius tax came to Peter and said, Does your* teacher not pay the four-denarius tax?
17:25 He says, Yes.
And when he came into the house, Jesus anticipated him, saying, What do you think, Simon? The kings of the earth, from whom do they receive tax or tribute? From their sons or from aliens?
17:26 And Peter says to him, From aliens.
Jesus said to him, Consequently, the sons are free. 17:27 But, in order that we do not offend them, you go to the sea and cast a fishhook and lift out the fish that ascends first, and when you have opened its mouth, you will find a four-denarius coin: take that and give it to them for you and me.
