9:1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be
some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death,
till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
9:2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and
John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by
themselves: and he was transfigured before them.
9:3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as
no fuller on earth can white them.
9:4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were
talking with Jesus.
9:5 And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for
us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for
thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
9:6 For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.
9:7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came
out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
9:8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no
man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.
9:9 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that
they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the
Son of man were risen from the dead.
9:10 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one
with another what the rising from the dead should mean.
9:11 And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias
must first come?
9:12 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and
restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man,
that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.
9:13 But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have
done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
9:14 And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude
about them, and the scribes questioning with them.
9:15 And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were
greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him.
9:16 And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them?
9:17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have
brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
9:18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth,
and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to
thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could
9:19 He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long
shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him
9:20 And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him,
straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground,
and wallowed foaming.
9:21 And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came
unto him? And he said, Of a child.
9:22 And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the
waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have
compassion on us, and help us.
9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are
possible to him that believeth.
9:24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said
with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he
rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf
spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into
9:26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him:
and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
9:27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he
9:28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him
privately, Why could not we cast him out?
9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing,
but by prayer and fasting.
9:30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galilee; and he
would not that any man should know it.
9:31 For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of
man is delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill
him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.
9:32 But they understood not that saying, and were afraid to ask
9:33 And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked
them, What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the
9:34 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed
among themselves, who should be the greatest.
9:35 And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them,
If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all,
and servant of all.
9:36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and
when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name,
receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not
me, but him that sent me.
9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out
devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad
him, because he followeth not us.
9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which
shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of
9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
9:41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my
name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he
shall not lose his reward.
9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that
believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were
hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
9:43 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 into
hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
9:45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee
to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into
hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
9:46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
9:47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for
thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than
having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
9:48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
9:49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice
shall be salted with salt.
9:50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness,
wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have
peace one with another.
