Matthew 17


Mat 17:1 Six days later Jesus *took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and *led them up on a high mountain by themselves.
Mat 17:2 And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.
Mat 17:3 And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.
Mat 17:4 Peter said to Jesus," Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah."
Mat 17:5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said," This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!"
Mat 17:6 When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground and were terrified.
Mat 17:7 And Jesus came to them and touched them and said," Get up, and do not be afraid."
Mat 17:8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus Himself alone.
Mat 17:9 As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying," Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man has risen from the dead."
Mat 17:10 And His disciples asked Him," Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
Mat 17:11 And He answered and said," Elijah is coming and will restore all things;
Mat 17:12 but I say to you that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands."
Mat 17:13 Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist.
Mat 17:14 When they came to the crowd, a man came up to Jesus, falling on his knees before Him and saying,
Mat 17:15 "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic and is very ill; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water.
Mat 17:16 I brought him to Your disciples, and they could not cure him."
Mat 17:17 And Jesus answered and said," You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me."
Mat 17:18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured at once.
Mat 17:19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said," Why could we not drive it out?"
Mat 17:20 And He *said to them," Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there, 'and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Mat 17:21 [ But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."]
Mat 17:22 And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them," The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men;
Mat 17:23 and they will kill Him, and He will be raised on the third day." And they were deeply grieved.
Mat 17:24 When they came to Capernaum, those who collected the two-drachma tax came to Peter and said," Does your teacher not pay the two-drachma tax?"
Mat 17:25 He *said," Yes." And when he came into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, saying," What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth collect customs or poll-tax, from their sons or from strangers?"
Mat 17:26 When Peter said," From strangers," Jesus said to him," Then the sons are exempt.
Mat 17:27 However, so that we do not offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and Me."

(kjv) Mat 17:4 Peter said to Jesus," Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah." Mat 17:4 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ πέτρος εἶπεν τῶ ἰησοῦ, κύριε, καλόν ἐστιν ἡμᾶς ὧδε εἶναι· εἰ θέλεις, ποιήσω ὧδε τρεῖς σκηνάς, σοὶ μίαν καὶ μωϊσεῖ μίαν καὶ ἠλίᾳ μίαν.
Mat 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. (kjv) Mat 17:5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said," This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!" Mat 17:5 ἔτι αὐτοῦ λαλοῦντος ἰδοὺ νεφέλη φωτεινὴ ἐπεσκίασεν αὐτούς, καὶ ἰδοὺ φωνὴ ἐκ τῆς νεφέλης λέγουσα, οὖτός ἐστιν ὁ υἱός μου ὁ ἀγαπητός, ἐν ᾧ εὐδόκησα· ἀκούετε αὐτοῦ.
Mat 17:6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. (kjv) Mat 17:6 When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground and were terrified. Mat 17:6 καὶ ἀκούσαντες οἱ μαθηταὶ ἔπεσαν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῶν καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν σφόδρα.

Mat 17:8 And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. (kjv) Mat 17:8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one except Jesus Himself alone. Mat 17:8 ἐπάραντες δὲ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῶν οὐδένα εἶδον εἰ μὴ αὐτὸν ἰησοῦν μόνον.
Mat 17:9 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead. (kjv) Mat 17:9 As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying," Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man has risen from the dead." Mat 17:9 καὶ καταβαινόντων αὐτῶν ἐκ τοῦ ὄρους ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς λέγων, μηδενὶ εἴπητε τὸ ὅραμα ἕως οὖ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐκ νεκρῶν ἐγερθῇ.
Mat 17:10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? (kjv) Mat 17:10 And His disciples asked Him," Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?" Mat 17:10 καὶ ἐπηρώτησαν αὐτὸν οἱ μαθηταὶ λέγοντες, τί οὗν οἱ γραμματεῖς λέγουσιν ὅτι ἠλίαν δεῖ ἐλθεῖν πρῶτον;
Mat 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. (kjv) Mat 17:11 And He answered and said," Elijah is coming and will restore all things; Mat 17:11 ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν, ἠλίας μὲν ἔρχεται καὶ ἀποκαταστήσει πάντα·
Mat 17:12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. (kjv) Mat 17:12 but I say to you that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands." Mat 17:12 λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν ὅτι ἠλίας ἤδη ἦλθεν, καὶ οὐκ ἐπέγνωσαν αὐτὸν ἀλλὰ ἐποίησαν ἐν αὐτῶ ὅσα ἠθέλησαν· οὕτως καὶ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου μέλλει πάσχειν ὑπ᾽ αὐτῶν.
Mat 17:13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist. (kjv) Mat 17:13 Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist. Mat 17:13 τότε συνῆκαν οἱ μαθηταὶ ὅτι περὶ ἰωάννου τοῦ βαπτιστοῦ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς.
Mat 17:14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, (kjv) Mat 17:14 When they came to the crowd, a man came up to Jesus, falling on his knees before Him and saying, Mat 17:14 καὶ ἐλθόντων πρὸς τὸν ὄχλον προσῆλθεν αὐτῶ ἄνθρωπος γονυπετῶν αὐτὸν
Mat 17 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. (kjv) Mat 17:15 "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is a lunatic and is very ill; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. Mat 17:15 καὶ λέγων, κύριε, ἐλέησόν μου τὸν υἱόν, ὅτι σεληνιάζεται καὶ κακῶς πάσχει· πολλάκις γὰρ πίπτει εἰς τὸ πῦρ καὶ πολλάκις εἰς τὸ ὕδωρ.
Mat 17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. (kjv) Mat 17:16 I brought him to Your disciples, and they could not cure him." Mat 17:16 καὶ προσήνεγκα αὐτὸν τοῖς μαθηταῖς σου, καὶ οὐκ ἠδυνήθησαν αὐτὸν θεραπεῦσαι.
Mat 17:17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. (kjv) Mat 17:17 And Jesus answered and said," You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me." Mat 17:17 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, ὦ γενεὰ ἄπιστος καὶ διεστραμμένη, ἕως πότε μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν ἔσομαι; ἕως πότε ἀνέξομαι ὑμῶν; φέρετέ μοι αὐτὸν ὧδε.
Mat 17:18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. (kjv) Mat 17:18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured at once. Mat 17:18 καὶ ἐπετίμησεν αὐτῶ ὁ ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ τὸ δαιμόνιον· καὶ ἐθεραπεύθη ὁ παῖς ἀπὸ τῆς ὥρας ἐκείνης.
Mat 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? (kjv) Mat 17:19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said," Why could we not drive it out?" Mat 17:19 τότε προσελθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ τῶ ἰησοῦ κατ᾽ ἰδίαν εἶπον, διὰ τί ἡμεῖς οὐκ ἠδυνήθημεν ἐκβαλεῖν αὐτό;
Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. (kjv) Mat 17:20 And He said to them," Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there, 'and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. Mat 17:20 ὁ δὲ λέγει αὐτοῖς, διὰ τὴν ὀλιγοπιστίαν ὑμῶν· ἀμὴν γὰρ λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐὰν ἔχητε πίστιν ὡς κόκκον σινάπεως, ἐρεῖτε τῶ ὄρει τούτῳ, μετάβα ἔνθεν ἐκεῖ, καὶ μεταβήσεται· καὶ οὐδὲν ἀδυνατήσει ὑμῖν.
Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. (kjv) Mat 17:21 [ But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting."] Mat 17:21
Mat 17:22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men: (kjv) Mat 17:22 And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them," The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men; Mat 17:22 συστρεφομένων δὲ αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ γαλιλαίᾳ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, μέλλει ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου παραδίδοσθαι εἰς χεῖρας ἀνθρώπων,
Mat 17:23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry. (kjv) Mat 17:23 and they will kill Him, and He will be raised on the third day." And they were deeply grieved. Mat 17:23 καὶ ἀποκτενοῦσιν αὐτόν, καὶ τῇ τρίτῃ ἡμέρᾳ ἐγερθήσεται. καὶ ἐλυπήθησαν σφόδρα.
Mat 17:24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? (kjv) Mat 17:24 When they came to Capernaum, those who collected the two-drachma tax came to Peter and said," Does your teacher not pay the two-drachma tax?" Mat 17:24 ἐλθόντων δὲ αὐτῶν εἰς καφαρναοὺμ προσῆλθον οἱ τὰ δίδραχμα λαμβάνοντες τῶ πέτρῳ καὶ εἶπαν, ὁ διδάσκαλος ὑμῶν οὐ τελεῖ [τὰ] δίδραχμα;
Mat 17:25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? (kjv) Mat 17:25 He said," Yes." And when he came into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, saying," What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth collect customs or poll-tax, from their sons or from strangers?" Mat 17:25 λέγει, ναί. καὶ ἐλθόντα εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν προέφθασεν αὐτὸν ὁ ἰησοῦς λέγων, τί σοι δοκεῖ, σίμων; οἱ βασιλεῖς τῆς γῆς ἀπὸ τίνων λαμβάνουσιν τέλη ἢ κῆνσον; ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῶν ἢ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀλλοτρίων;
Mat 17:26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (kjv) Mat 17:26 When Peter said," From strangers," Jesus said to him," Then the sons are exempt. Mat 17:26 εἰπόντος δέ, ἀπὸ τῶν ἀλλοτρίων, ἔφη αὐτῶ ὁ ἰησοῦς, ἄρα γε ἐλεύθεροί εἰσιν οἱ υἱοί.
Mat 17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.(kjv) Mat 17:27 However, so that we do not offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and Me." Mat 17:27 ἵνα δὲ μὴ σκανδαλίσωμεν αὐτούς, πορευθεὶς εἰς θάλασσαν βάλε ἄγκιστρον καὶ τὸν ἀναβάντα πρῶτον ἰχθὺν ἆρον, καὶ ἀνοίξας τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ εὑρήσεις στατῆρα· ἐκεῖνον λαβὼν δὸς αὐτοῖς ἀντὶ ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ.
