Mark 9:1-29 Darby’s Translation

9 1  And he said to them, Verily I say unto you, There are some of those standing here that shall not taste death until they shall have seen the kingdom of God come in power.

The Transfiguration

2  And after six days Jesus takes with [him] Peter and James and John, and takes them up on a high mountain by themselves apart. And he was transfigured before them: 3  and his garments became shining, exceeding white [as snow], such as fuller on earth could not whiten [them]. 4  And there appeared to them Elias with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus. 5  And Peter answering says to Jesus, Rabbi, it is good that we should be here; and let us make three tabernacles, for thee one, and for Moses one, and for Elias one. 6  For he knew not what he should say, for they were filled with fear. 7  And there came a cloud overshadowing them, and there came a voice out of the cloud, This is my beloved Son: hear him. 8  And suddenly having looked around, they no longer saw any one, but Jesus alone with themselves. 9  And as they descended from the mountain, he charged them that they should relate to no one what they had seen, unless when the Son of man should be risen from among [the] dead. 10  And they kept that saying, questioning among themselves, what rising from among [the] dead was. 11  And they asked him saying, Why do the scribes say that Elias must first have come? 12  And he answering said to them, Elias indeed, having first come, restores all things; and how is it written of the Son of man that he must suffer much, and be set at nought: 13  but I say unto you that Elias also is come, and they have done to him whatever they would, as it is written of him.

Jesus Heals a Boy with an Unclean Spirit

14  And when he came to the disciples he saw a great crowd around them, and scribes disputing against them. 15  And immediately all the crowd seeing him were amazed, and running to [him], saluted him. 16  And he asked them, What do ye question with them about? 17  And one out of the crowd answered him, Teacher, I brought to thee my son, who has a dumb spirit; 18  and wheresoever it seizes him it tears him, and he foams and gnashes his teeth, and he is withering away. And I spoke to thy disciples, that they might cast him out, and they could not. 19  But he answering them says, O unbelieving generation! how long shall I be with you? how long shall I bear with you? bring him to me. 20  And they brought him to him. And seeing him the spirit immediately tore him; and falling upon the earth he rolled foaming. 21  And he asked his father, How long a time is it that it has been like this with him? And he said, From childhood; 22  and often it has cast him both into fire and into waters that it might destroy him: but if thou couldst [do] anything, be moved with pity on us, and help us. 23  And Jesus said to him, The 'if thou couldst' is [if thou couldst] believe: all things are possible to him that believes. 24  And immediately the father of the young child crying out said [with tears], I believe, help mine unbelief. 25  But Jesus, seeing that [the] crowd was running up together, rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to 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 he became as if dead, so that the most said, He is dead. 27  But Jesus, having taken hold of him by the hand, lifted him up, and he arose. 28  And when he was entered into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Wherefore could not we cast him out? 29  And he said to them, This kind can go out by nothing but by prayer and fasting.
