17 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James
and John the brother of James,
and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
2 There he was transfigured before them.
His face shone like the sun, and his clothes
became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared
before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here.
If you wish, I will put up three shelters —
one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud
enveloped them, and a voice from the cloud said,
“This is my Son, whom I love; with him, I am well pleased. Listen to him!”
6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown
to the ground, terrified.
