Mattithyahu (Matthew) 17:1-11


Matthew 17

1  And after six days יהושע took Kĕpha, and Yaʽaqoḇ, and Yoḥanan his brother, and brought them up on a high mountain by themselves,

2  and He was transformed before them, and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as the light.

3  And see, Mosheh and Ěliyahu appeared to them, talking with Him.

4  And Kĕpha answering, said to יהושע, "Master, it is good for us to be here. If You want, let us make here three booths: one for You, one for Mosheh, and one for Ěliyahu."

5  While he was still speaking, see, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And see, a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is My Bĕn, the Beloved, in whom I delight. Hear Him!"

6  And when the talmidim heard, they fell on their faces and were much afraid.

7  But יהושע came near and touched them and said, "Rise, and do not be afraid."

8  And having lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but יהושע only.

9  And as they were coming down from the mountain, יהושע commanded them, saying, "Do not mention the vision to anyone until the Bĕn of Aḏam is raised from the dead."

10  And His talmidim asked Him, saying, "Why then do the scribes say that Ěliyahu has to come first?"

11  And יהושע answering, said to them, "Ěliyahu is indeed coming first, and shall restore all.
