9:34 And while he said these things, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
9:35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my Son, my chosen: hear ye him.
9:36 And when the voice came, Jesus was found alone. And they held their peace, and told no man in those days any of the things which they had seen.
9:38 And behold, a man from the multitude cried, saying, Teacher, I beseech thee to look upon my son; for he is mine only child:
9:39 and behold, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth, and it hardly departeth from him, bruising him sorely.

9:52 and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him.
9:53 And they did not receive him, because his face was [as though he were] going to Jerusalem.
9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them.
9:56 And they went to another village.
9:57 And as they went on the way, a certain man said unto him, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.
9:58 And Jesus said unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the heaven [have] nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
9:59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
9:60 But he said unto him, Leave the dead to bury their own dead; but go thou and publish abroad the kingdom of God.
9:61 And another also said, I will follow thee, Lord; but first suffer me to bid farewell to them that are at my house.
