8:26. And he sent him into his house, saying: Go into thy house, and if thou enter into the town, tell nobody.
8:27. And Jesus went out, and his disciples into the towns of Caesarea Philippi. And in the way, he asked his disciples, saying to them: Whom do men say that I am?
8:28. Who answered him, saying: John the Baptist; but some Elias, and others as one of the prophets.
8:29. Then he saith to them: But whom do you say that I am? Peter answering said to him: Thou art the Christ.
8:30. And he strictly charged them that they should not tell any man of him.
8:31. And he began to teach them that the Son of man must suffer many things and be rejected by the ancients and by the high priests and the scribes: and be killed and after three days rise again.
8:32. And he spoke the word openly. And Peter taking him began to rebuke him.
8:33. Who turning about and seeing his disciples, threatened Peter, saying: Go behind me, Satan, because thou savourest not the things that are of God but that are of men.
8:34. And calling the multitude together with his disciples, he said to them: If any man will follow me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
8:35. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel shall save it.
8:36. For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul?
8:37. Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul:
8:38. For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
8:39. And he said to them: Amen f say to you that there are some of them that stand here who shall not taste death till they see the kingdom of God coming in power.
Mark Chapter 9
Christ is transfigured. He casts out the dumb spirit. He teaches humility and to avoid scandal.
9:1. And after six days, Jesus taketh with him Peter and James and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves, and was transfigured before them.
9:2. And his garments became shining and exceeding white as snow, so as no fuller upon earth can make white.
9:3. And there appeared to them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.
9:4. And Peter answering, said 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 Elias.
9:5. For he knew not what he said: for they were struck with fear.
9:6. And there was a cloud overshadowing them. And a voice came out of the cloud, saying: This is my most beloved Son. Hear ye him.
9:7. And immediately looking about, they saw no man any more, but Jesus only with them.
9:8. And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them not to tell any man what things they had seen, till the Son of man shall be risen again from the dead.
9:9. And they kept the word to themselves; questioning together what that should mean, when he shall be risen from the dead.
9:10. And they asked him, saying: Why then do the Pharisees and scribes say that Elias must come first?
9:11. Who answering, said to then: Elias, when he shall come first, shall restore all things; and as it is written of the Son of man that he must suffer many things and be despised.
9:12. But I say to you that Elias also is come (and they have done to him whatsoever they would), as it is written of him.
9:13. And coming to his disciples he saw a great multitude about them and the scribes disputing with them.
9:14. And presently all the people, seeing Jesus, were astonished and struck with fear: and running to him, they saluted him.
9:15. And he asked them: What do you question about among you?
9:16. And one of the multitude, answering, said: Master, I have brought my son to thee, having a dumb spirit.
9:17. Who, wheresoever he taketh him, dasheth him: and he foameth and gnasheth with the teeth and pineth away. And I spoke to thy disciples to cast him out: and they could not.
9:18. Who answering them, said: O incredulous generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Bring him unto me.
9:19. And they brought him. And when he had seen him, immediately the spirit troubled him and being thrown down upon the ground, he rolled about foaming.
9:20. And he asked his father: How long time is it since this hath happened unto him? But he sad: From his infancy.
9:21. And oftentimes hath he cast him into the fire and into the waters to destroy him. But if thou canst do any thing, help us, having compassion on us.
9:22. And Jesus saith to him: If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
9:23. And immediately the father of the boy crying out, with tears said: I do believe, Lord. Help my unbelief.
9:24. And when Jesus saw the multitude running together, he threatened the unclean spirit, saying to him: Deaf and dumb spirit, I command thee, go out of him and enter not any more into him.
9:25. And crying out and greatly tearing him, he went our of him. And he became as dead, so that many said: He is dead.
9:26. But Jesus taking him by the hand, lifted him up. And he arose.
9:27. And when he was come into the house, his disciples secretly asked him: Why could not we cast him out?
9:28. And he said to them: This kind can go out by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
9:29. And departing from thence, they passed through Galilee: and he would not that any man should know it.
9:30. And he taught his disciples and said to them: The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men, and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise again the third day.
9:31. But they understood not the word: and they were afraid to ask him.
9:32. And they came to Capharnaum. And when they were in the house, he asked them: What did you treat of in the way?
9:33. But they held their peace, for in the way they had disputed among themselves, which of them should be the greatest.
9:34. And sitting down, he called the twelve and saith to them: If any man desire to be first, he shall be the last of all and be minister of all.
