Matthew, Chapter 12

12:1 Now when Jesus came into the parts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Who do men say that the Son of Man is?
12:2 And they said, Some [say] John the Baptist; some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.
12:3 He says to them, But who do you+ say that I am?
12:4 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ.
12:5 Then he charged the disciples that they should tell no man.
12:6 From that time Jesus began to show to his disciples, that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.
12:7 And Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from you, Lord: this will never happen to you.
12:8 But he turned, and said to Peter, Get behind me, Satan: you are a stumbling-block to me: for you do not mind the things of God, but the things of men.
12:9 Then Jesus said to his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
12:10 For whoever would save his soul will lose it: and whoever will lose his soul for my sake will find it.
12:11 For what will a man be profited, if he will gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
12:12 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he will render to each man according to his activity.
12:13 Truly I say to you+, There are some of those who stand here, who will in no way taste of death, until they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.
12:14 And after six days Jesus takes with him Peter, and James, and John his brother, and brings them up into a high mountain apart:
12:15 and he was transfigured before them; and his face shone as the sun, and his garments became white as the light.
12:16 And look, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah talking with him.
12:17 And Peter answered, and said to Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if you will, I will make here three tabernacles; one for you, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.
12:18 While he was yet speaking, look, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and look, a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear+ him.
12:19 And then they saw no one, except Jesus only.
12:20 And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, except when the Son of Man should have risen again from the dead.
12:21 And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the rising again from the dead should mean.
12:22 And they asked him, saying, [How is it] that the scribes say that Elijah must first come?
12:23 And he said to them, Elijah indeed comes first, and restores all things: and how is it written of the Son of Man, that he should suffer many things and be set at nothing?
12:24 But I say to you+, that Elijah has come, and they have also done to him whatever they would, even as it is written of him.
