1 And after six days, Jesus took with him Peter, and James, and John; and he led them separately to a lofty mountain alone; and he was transfigured before them. 2 And his vestments became radiant and exceedingly white like snow, with such a brilliance as no fuller on earth is able to achieve. 3 And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses; and they were speaking with Jesus. 4 And in response, Peter said to Jesus: "Master, it is good for us to be here. And so let us make three tabernacles, one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah." 5 For he did not know what he was saying. For they were overwhelmed by fear. 6 And there was a cloud overshadowing them. And a voice came from the cloud, saying: "This is my most beloved Son. Listen to him." 7 And immediately, looking around, they no longer saw anyone, except Jesus alone with them. 8 And as they were descending from the mountain, he instructed them not to relate to anyone what they had seen, until after the Son of man will have risen again from the dead. 9 And they kept the word to themselves, arguing about what "after he will have risen from the dead" might mean. 10 And they questioned him, saying: "Then why do the Pharisees and the scribes say that Elijah must arrive first?" 11 And in response, he said to them: "Elijah, when he will arrive first, shall restore all things. And in the manner that it has been written about the Son of man, so must he suffer many things and be condemned. 12 But I say to you, that Elijah also has arrived, (and they have done to him whatever they wanted) just as it has been written about him." 13 And approaching his disciples, he saw a great crowd surrounding them, and the scribes were arguing with them.
