Christ is transfigured. He casts out the dumb spirit. He teaches humility and to avoid scandal.
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.
Et post dies sex assumit Jesus Petrum, et Jacobum, et Joannem, et ducit illos in montem excelsum seorsum solos, et transfiguratus est coram ipsis.
2 And his garments became shining and exceeding white as snow, so as no fuller upon earth can make white.
Et vestimenta ejus facta sunt splendentia, et candida nimis velut nix, qualia fullo non potest super terram candida facere.
3 And there appeared to them Elias with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus.
Et apparuit illis Elias cum Moyse : et erant loquentes cum Jesu.
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.
Et respondens Petrus, ait Jesu : Rabbi, bonum est nos hic esse : et faciamus tria tabernacula, tibi unum, et Moysi unum, et Eliae unum.
5 For he knew not what he said: for they were struck with fear.
Non enim sciebat quid diceret : erant enim timore exterriti.
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.
Et facta est nubes obumbrans eos : et venit vox de nube, dicens : Hic est Filius meus carissimus : audite illum.
7 And immediately looking about, they saw no man any more, but Jesus only with them.
Et statim circumspicientes, neminem amplius viderunt, nisi Jesum tantum secum.
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.
Et descendentibus illis de monte, praecepit illis ne cuiquam quae vidissent, narrarent : nisi cum Filius hominis a mortuis resurrexerit.
9 And they kept the word to themselves; questioning together what that should mean, when he shall be risen from the dead.
Et verbum continuerunt apud se : conquirentes quid esset, cum a mortuis resurrexerit.
10 And they asked him, saying: Why then do the Pharisees and scribes say that Elias must come first?
Et interrogabant eum, dicentes : Quid ergo dicunt pharisaei et scribae, quia Eliam oportet venire primum?
11 Who answering, said to them: 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.
Qui respondens, ait illis : Elias cum venerit primo, restituet omnia : et quomodo scriptum est in Filium hominis, ut multa patiatur et contemnatur.
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.
Sed dico vobis quia et Elias venit ( et fecerunt illi quaecumque voluerunt) sicut scriptum est de eo.
13 And coming to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes disputing with them.
Et veniens ad discipulos suos, vidit turbam magnam circa eos, et scribas conquirentes cum illis.
14 And presently all the people seeing Jesus, were astonished and struck with fear; and running to him, they saluted him.
Et confestim omnis populus videns Jesum, stupefactus est, et expaverunt, et accurrentes salutabant eum.
15 And he asked them: What do you question about among you?
Et interrogavit eos : Quid inter vos conquiritis?
16 And one of the multitude, answering, said: Master, I have brought my son to thee, having a dumb spirit.
Et respondens unus de turba, dixit : Magister, attuli filium meum ad te habentem spiritum mutum :
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.
qui ubicumque eum apprehenderit, allidit illum, et spumat, et stridet dentibus, et arescit : et dixi discipulis tuis ut ejicerent illum, et non potuerunt.
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.
Qui respondens eis, dixit : O generatio incredula, quamdiu apud vos ero? quamdiu vos patiar? afferte illum ad me.
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.
Et attulerunt eum. Et cum vidisset eum, statim spiritus conturbavit illum : et elisus in terram, volutabatur spumans.
20 And he asked his father: How long time is it since this hath happened unto him? But he said: From his infancy:
Et interrogavit patrem ejus : Quantum temporis est ex quo ei hoc accidit? At ille ait : Ab infantia :
21 And oftentimes hath he cast him into the fire and into waters to destroy him. But if thou canst do any thing, help us, having compassion on us.
et frequenter eum in ignem, et in aquas misit ut eum perderet : sed si quid potes, adjuva nos, misertus nostri.
22 And Jesus saith to him: If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Jesus autem ait illi : Si potes credere, omnia possibilia sunt credenti.
23 And immediately the father of the boy crying out, with tears said: I do believe, Lord: help my unbelief.
Et continuo exclamans pater pueri, cum lacrimis aiebat : Credo, Domine; adjuva incredulitatem meam.
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.
Et cum videret Jesus concurrentem turbam, comminatus est spiritui immundo, dicens illi : Surde et mute spiritus, ego praecipio tibi, exi ab eo : et amplius ne introeas in eum.
25 And crying out, and greatly tearing him, he went out of him, and he became as dead, so that many said: He is dead.
Et exclamans, et multum discerpens eum, exiit ab eo, et factus est sicut mortuus, ita ut multi dicerent : Quia mortuus est.
26 But Jesus taking him by the hand, lifted him up; and he arose.
Jesus autem tenens manum ejus elevavit eum, et surrexit.
27 And when he was come into the house, his disciples secretly asked him: Why could not we cast him out?
Et cum introisset in domum, discipuli ejus secreto interrogabant eum : Quare nos non potuimus ejicere eum?
28 And he said to them: This kind can go out by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
Et dixit illis : Hoc genus in nullo potest exire, nisi in oratione et jejunio.
29 And departing from thence, they passed through Galilee, and he would not that any man should know it.
Et inde profecti praetergrediebantur Galilaeam : nec volebat quemquam scire.
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.
Docebat autem discipulos suos, et dicebat illis : Quoniam Filius hominis tradetur in manus hominum, et occident eum, et occisus tertia die resurget.
31 But they understood not the word, and they were afraid to ask him.
At illi ignorabant verbum : et timebant interrogare eum.
32 And they came to Capharnaum. And when they were in the house, he asked them: What did you treat of in the way?
Et venerunt Capharnaum. Qui cum domi essent, interrogabat eos : Quid in via tractabatis?
33 But they held their peace, for in the way they had disputed among themselves, which of them should be the greatest.
At illi tacebant : siquidem in via inter se disputaverunt : quis eorum major esset.
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 the minister of all.
Et residens vocavit duodecim, et ait illis : Si quis vult primus esse, erit omnium novissimus, et omnium minister.
35 And taking a child, he set him in the midst of them. Whom when he had embraced, he saith to them:
Et accipiens puerum, statuit eum in medio eorum : quem cum complexus esset, ait illis :
36 Whosoever shall receive one such child as this in my name, receiveth me. And whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
Quisquis unum ex hujusmodi pueris receperit in nomine meo, me recipit : et quicumque me susceperit, non me suscipit, sed eum qui misit me.
37 John answered him, saying: Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us, and we forbade him.
Respondit illi Joannes, dicens : Magister, vidimus quemdam in nomine tuo ejicientem daemonia, qui non sequitur nos, et prohibuimus eum.
38 But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no man that doth a miracle in my name, and can soon speak ill of me.
Jesus autem ait : Nolite prohibere eum : nemo est enim qui faciat virtutem in nomine meo, et possit cito male loqui de me :
39 For he that is not against you, is for you.
qui enim non est adversum vos, pro vobis est.
40 For whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water in my name, because you belong to Christ: amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.
Quisquis enim potum dederit vobis calicem aquae in nomine meo, quia Christi estis : amen dico vobis, non perdet mercedem suam.
41 And whosoever shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me; it were better for him that a millstone were hanged around his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
Et quisquis scandalizaverit unum ex his pusillis credentibus in me : bonum est ei magis si circumdaretur mola asinaria collo ejus, et in mare mitteretur.
42 And if thy hand scandalize thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life, maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into unquenchable fire:
Et si scandalizaverit te manus tua, abscide illam : bonum est tibi debilem introire in vitam, quam duas manus habentem ire in gehennam, in ignem inextinguibilem,
43 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
ubi vermis eorum non moritur, et ignis non extinguitur.
44 And if thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off. It is better for thee to enter lame into life everlasting, than having two feet, to be cast into the hell of unquenchable fire:
Et si pes tuus te scandalizat, amputa illum : bonum est tibi claudum introire in vitam aeternam, quam duos pedes habentem mitti in gehennam ignis inextinguibilis,
45 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
ubi vermis eorum non moritur, et ignis non extinguitur.
46 And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out. It is better for thee with one eye to enter into the kingdom of God, than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire:
Quod si oculus tuus scandalizat te, ejice eum : bonum est tibi luscum introire in regnum Dei, quam duos oculos habentem mitti in gehennam ignis,
47 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not extinguished.
ubi vermis eorum non moritur, et ignis non extinguitur.
48 For every one shall be salted with fire: and every victim shall be salted with salt.
Omnis enim igne salietur, et omnis victima sale salietur.
49 Salt is good. But if the salt became unsavoury; wherewith will you season it? Have salt in you, and have peace among you.
Bonum est sal : quod si sal insulsum fuerit, in quo illud condietis? Habete in vobis sal, et pacem habete inter vos.
