Mark 9:1-29 American Standard Version

9 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There are some here of them that stand [by], who shall in no wise taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God come with power.

The Transfiguration

2  And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them; 3  and his garments became glistering, exceeding white, so as no fuller on earth can whiten them. 4  And there appeared unto them Elijah with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. 5  And Peter answereth and saith to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah. 6  For he knew not what to answer; for they became sore afraid. 7  And there came a cloud overshadowing them: and there came a voice out of the cloud, This is my beloved Son: hear ye him. 8  And suddenly looking round about, they saw no one any more, save Jesus only with themselves. 9  And as they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, save when the Son of man should have risen again from the dead. 10  And they kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the rising again from the dead should mean. 11  And they asked him, saying, [How is it] that the scribes say that Elijah must first come? 12  And he said unto them, Elijah indeed cometh first, and restoreth all things: and how is it written of the Son of man, that he should suffer many things and be set at nought? 13  But I say unto you, that Elijah is come, and they have also done unto him whatsoever they would, even as it is written of him.

Jesus Heals a Boy with an Unclean Spirit

14  And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great multitude about them, and scribes questioning with them. 15  And straightway all the multitude, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. 16  And he asked them, What question ye with them? 17  And one of the multitude answered him, Teacher, I brought unto thee my son, who hath a dumb spirit; 18  and wheresoever it taketh him, it dasheth him down: and he foameth, and grindeth his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast it out; and they were not able. 19  And he answereth them and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him unto me. 20  And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him grievously; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. 21  And he asked his father, How long time is it since this hath come unto him? And he said, From a child. 22  And oft-times it hath cast him both into the fire and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. 23  And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst! All things are possible to him that believeth. 24  Straightway the father of the child cried out, and said, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 25  And when Jesus saw that a multitude came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I command thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. 26  And having cried out, and torn him much, he came out: and [the boy] became as one dead; insomuch that the more part said, He is dead. 27  But Jesus took him by the hand, and raised him up; and he arose. 28  And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, [How is it] that we could not cast it out? 29  And he said unto them, This kind can come out by nothing, save by prayer.
