1. And He said to them, “Truly, I say to you that there are some standing here who shall not taste of death at all until they see the reign of Elohim having come in power:"

The Transfiguration

2. And after six days ????? took Kepha, and Ya?aqo?, and Yo?anan, and led them up on a high mountain alone by themselves. And He was transformed before them.

3. And His garments became glittering, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth is able to whiten.

4. And there appeared to them Eliyahu with Mosheh,a and they were talking with ?????. Footnote: aSee Mat 17:2-9, Luk 9:28-35, Luk 16:31, Joh 5:47, Mal 4:4-5.

5. And Kepha responding, said to ?????, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. And let us make three booths, one for You, and one for Mosheh, and one for Eliyahu,”

6. because he did not know what to say, for they were exceedingly afraid.

7. And there came a cloud overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved. Hear Him!”

8. And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them, but only ?????.

9. And as they were coming down from the mountain, He ordered them not to relate to anyone what they saw, till the Son of A?am had risen from the dead.

10. And they kept this matter to themselves, debating what the rising from the dead meant.

11. And they asked Him, saying, “Why do the scribes say that Eliyahu has to come first?”

12. And He said to them, "Eliyahu indeed, having come first, restores all matters.b And how has it been written concerning the Son of A?am, that He is to suffer much and be despised? Footnote: bSee Mat 17:11 and Act 3:21.

13. “But I say to you that even Eliyahu has come, and they did to him whatever they wished, as it has been written of him.”

14. And coming to the taught ones, He saw a large crowd around them, and scribes disputing with them.

15. And immediately, when all the crowd saw Him, they were greatly astonished, and running near, greeted Him.

16. And He asked the scribes, “What are you disputing with them?”

17. And one of the crowd answering, said, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a dumb spirit.

18. “And wherever he seizes him, he throws him down, and he foams at the mouth, and gnashes his teeth, and he wastes away. And I spoke to Your taught ones, that they should cast him out, but they were not able.”

19. And He answered him and said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to Me.”

20. So they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into convulsions. And falling on the ground, he rolled about, foaming at the mouth.

21. And He asked his father, “How long has he been like this?” And he said, “From childhood,

22. and often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if it is at all possible for You, have compassion on us and help us.”

23. And ????? said to him, “If you are able to believe, all is possible to him who believes.”

24. And immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “I believe Master, help my unbelief!”

25. And when ????? saw that a crowd came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to him, “You deaf and dumb spirit, I order you, come out of him, and never again enter into him!”

26. And crying out, and convulsing him much, it came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said that he was dead.

27. But ?????, taking him by the hand, lifted him up, and he arose.

28. And when He came into a house, His taught ones asked Him separately, “Why were we unable to cast him out?”

29. And He said to them, “It is impossible for this kind to come out except through prayer and fasting.”

30. And going from there they passed through Galil. And He did not wish anyone to know,

31. for He was teaching His taught ones and said to them, “The Son of A?am is being delivered into the hands of men, and they shall kill Him. And having been killed, He shall rise the third day.”

32. But they did not understand the word, and they were afraid to ask Him.

33. And they came to Kephar Na?um, and being in the house He asked them, “What was it you disputed among yourselves on the way?”

34. And they were silent, for on the way they had disputed with one another who was the greatest.

35. And sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”

36. And He took a little child and set him in their midst, and taking him in His arms, He said to them,

37. “Whoever receives one of such little children in My Name receives Me. And whoever receives Me, receives not Me, but the One who sent Me.”

Whoever Is Not Against Us Is for Us

38. And Yo?anan said to Him, “Teacher, we saw someone, who does not follow us, casting out demons in Your Name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us.”

39. And ????? said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My Name is able to readily speak evil of Me.

40. “For he who is not against us is for us.

41. “For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My Name, because you are of Messiah, truly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.

43. “And if your hand makes you stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life crippled, than having two hands, to go into GeHinnom, into the unquenchable fire,

45. “And if your foot makes you stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life crippled, than having two feet, to be thrown into GeHinnom, into the unquenchable fire,

46. where ‘their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’d Footnote: dVerses 44 and 46 are omitted from some ancient manuscripts.

47. “And if your eye makes you stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter into the reign of Elohim with one eye, than having two eyes, to be thrown into the fire of GeHinnom,

48. where ‘their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’ Isa 66:24.

49. “For everyone shall be seasoned with fire, and every offering shall be seasoned with salt.

50. “Salt is good, but if the salt becomes tasteless, how shall you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace among one another.”
