19 And after six days Joshua taketh with him Peter, and James,
and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain to pray apart by
20 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was
altered, (transfigured) before them: his face did shine as the sun,
21 And his raiment was white and glistering as the light,
shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
22 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses
23 who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he
should accomplish at Jerusalem.
24 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep:

round about, they saw no man, save Joshua only with themselves.
31 And as they came down from the mountain, Joshua charged
them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until

32 And they kept that saying with themselves, questioning one

must first come?
34 And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and
how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set

unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they knew him not, and they have done
unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him. Likewise shall also
the Son of man suffer of them.
36 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of
John the Baptist.
37 And they kept it close, and told no man in those days any of
those things which they had seen.
