17Matthew

1 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart.

The Transfiguration of Jesus Mt.17.1-13[ Mt.17.1-13 → ] - Mk.9.2-13, Lk.9.28-36
2 And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light.  
3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him.  
4 And Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is well that we are here; if you wish, I will make three booths here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah."  
5 He was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him."

 
6 When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces, and were filled with awe.  
7 But Jesus came and touched them, saying, "Rise, and have no fear."  
8 And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.  
9 And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, "Tell no one the vision, until the Son of man is raised from the dead."  
10 And the disciples asked him, "Then why do the scribes say that first Elijah must come?"  
11 He replied, "Elijah does come, and he is to restore all things;  
12 but I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not know him, but did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of man will suffer at their hands."  
13 Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.  
14 And when they came to the crowd, a man came up to him and kneeling before him said, The Healing of a Boy with a Demon Mt.17.14-21 (Mount Hermon) -[ Mt.17.14-21 → ] - Mk.9.14-29, Lk.9.37-43
15 "Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly; for often he falls into the fire, and often into the water.  
16 And I brought him to your disciples, and they could not heal him."  
17 And Jesus answered, "O faithless and perverse generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to me."  
18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly.  
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?"

 
20 He said to them, "Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."  
21 Other ancient authorities insert verse 21, "But this kind never comes out except by prayer and fasting"

 
22 As they were gathering in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of man is to be delivered into the hands of men,

Jesus again Foretells his Death and Resurrection Mt.17.22-23 (Mount Hermon) -[ Mt.17.22-23 → ] - Mk.9.30-32, Lk.9.43-45
23 and they will kill him, and he will be raised on the third day." And they were greatly distressed.  
24 When they came to Capernaum, the collectors of the half-shekel tax went up to Peter and said, "Does not your teacher pay the tax?" Payment of the Temple Tax Mt.17.24-27 (Capernaum) -
25 He said, "Yes." And when he came home, Jesus spoke to him first, saying, "What do you think, Simon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tribute? From their sons or from others?"  
26 And when he said, "From others," Jesus said to him, "Then the sons are free.  
27 However, not to give offence to them, go to the sea and cast 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 me and for yourself."

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
