Yehoshua  (יהושע) transfigured (metamorphoo) on the Mount

(Matt 16:28-17:13; Luke 9:27-36; 2 Pe 1:16-18)


And Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to them:

Truly I say to you:

That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the Malkut Elohim come with power.

9:2 And after six days Yehoshua  (יהושע) takes [with him] Kefa, and Yaakov, and Yochanan, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and He was transfigured (metamorphoo) 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 to them Eliyahu with Mosheh: and they were talking with Yehoshua  (יהושע).

9:5 And Kefa answered and said to Yehoshua  (יהושע),

Rabbi, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three sukkot; one for you, and one for Mosheh, and one for Eliyahu.

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 Yehoshua  (יהושע) 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 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 Yehoshua  (יהושע), saying:

Why say the Sofrim that Eliyahu must first come?

9:12 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) answered and told them:

Eliyahu Truly cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of Son of man, that He must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

9:13 But I say to you:

That Eliyahu is indeed come, and they have done to him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.

A boy with dump spirited healed

(Matt 17:14-21; Luke 9:37-42)

9:14 And when He came to [his] Talmidim, He saw a great multitude about them, and the Sofrim 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 Sofrim, What question you with them?

9:17 And one of the multitude answered and said:

"Teacher (didaskalos), I have brought to you my son, which hath a dumb spirit;"

9:18 And wheresoever he takes him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I speak to your Talmidim that they should cast him out; and they could not.

9:19 Yehoshua  (יהושע) answereth him, and saith:

O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you?

how long shall I suffer you?

Bring him to Me.

9:20 And they brought him to Yehoshua  (יהושע): and when he saw Him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground and foaming at the mouth.

9:21 And He asked his father:

How long is it ago since this came to him?

And He said, Of a child.

9:22 "It has often thrown him both into the fire and into the waters, to destroy him: But if you canst do any thing, have rachmei shomayim (compassion) on us, and help us."

9:23 Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to him:

If you canst believe, all things [are] possible to him that believes.

9:24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Master, I believe; help you mine unbelief.

9:25 When Yehoshua  (יהושע) saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the foul spirit, saying to him, [You] dumb and deaf spirit, I charge you, come out of him, and enter no more into him.

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 Yehoshua  (יהושע) took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.

9:28 And when He was come into the house, His Talmidim asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?

9:29 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) said to them:

This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

Yehoshua  (יהושע) predicts His Death and Resurrection

(Matt 17:22, 23; Luke 9:43-45)

9:30 And they departed thence, and passed through Galil; and He would not that any man should know [it].

9:31 For Yehoshua  (יהושע) taught His Talmidim, and said to them:

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 Him.

Who is the Greatest?

(Matt 18:1-5; Luke 9:46-48)

9:33 And He came to Kfar-Nachum: and being in the house He asked them,

What was it that you disputed among yourselves by the way?

9:34 But they were silent: 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 said to 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 to 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 Yochanan answered Him, saying:

Teacher (didaskalos), we saw one casting out devils in your Name, and He followeth not us: and we forbad him, because He followeth not us.


But Yehoshua  (יהושע) said:

Forbid him not:

for there is no man which shall do a miracle in My Name, that can lightly speak evil of Me.

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 you belong to Mashiach,

Truly I say to 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 your hand offend you, cut it off: it is better for you 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 your foot offend you, cut it off: it is better for you 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 your eye offend you, pluck it out: it is better for you to enter into the Malkut Elohim 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 you season it?

Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
