Luke 9:18-36 Darby’s Translation

Peter's Declaration

18  And it came to pass as he was praying alone, his disciples were with him, and he asked them saying, Who do the crowds say that I am? 19  But they answering said, John the baptist; but others, Elias; and others, that one of the old prophets has risen again. 20  And he said to them, But ye, who do ye say that I am? And Peter answering said, The Christ of God.

Jesus Foretells His Death

21  But, earnestly charging them, he enjoined [them] to say this to no man, 22  saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up. 23  And he said to [them] all, If any one will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me; 24  for whosoever shall desire to save his life shall lose it, but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, he shall save it. 25  For what shall a man profit if he shall have gained the whole world, and have destroyed, or come under the penalty of the loss of himself? 26  For whosoever shall have been ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of man be ashamed when he shall come in his glory, and [in that] of the Father, and of the holy angels. 27  But I say unto you of a truth, There are some of those standing here who shall not taste death until they shall have seen the kingdom of God.

The Transfiguration

28  And it came to pass after these words, about eight days, that taking Peter and John and James he went up into a mountain to pray. 29  And as he prayed the fashion of his countenance became different and his raiment white [and] effulgent. 30  And lo, two men talked with him, who were Moses and Elias, 31  who, appearing in glory, spoke of his departure which he was about to accomplish in Jerusalem. 32  But Peter and those with him were oppressed with sleep: but having fully awoke up they saw his glory, and the two men who stood with him. 33  And it came to pass as they departed from him, Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not knowing what he said. 34  But as he was saying these things, there came a cloud and overshadowed them, and they feared as they entered into the cloud: 35  and there was a voice out of the cloud saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 36  And as the voice was [heard] Jesus was found alone: and they kept silence, and told no one in those days any of the things they had seen.
