9:6 For he didn`t know what to say, for they were very afraid.
9:7 A cloud came, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, "This is my beloved Son. Listen to him."
9:8 Suddenly looking around, they saw no one with them any more, except Jesus only.
9:9 As they were coming down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no one what things they had seen, until the Son of Man had risen again from the dead.
9:10 They kept the saying, questioning among themselves what the rising again from the dead should mean.
9:11 They asked him, saying, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
9:12 He said to them, "Elijah indeed comes first, and restores all things. How is it written about the Son of Man, that he should suffer many things and be despised?
9:13 But I tell you, that Elijah has come, and they have also done to him whatever they wanted to, even as it is written about him."
9:14 Coming to the disciples, he saw a great multitude around them, and scribes questioning them.
9:15 Immediately all the multitude, when they saw him, were greatly amazed, and running to him greeted him.
9:16 He asked the scribes, "What are you asking them?"
9:17 One of the multitude answered, "Teacher, I brought to you my son, who has a mute spirit;
9:20 They brought him to him, and when he saw him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground, wallowing and foaming at the mouth.
9:21 He asked his father, "How long has it been since this has come to him?" He said, "From childhood.
9:23 Jesus said to him, "If you can believe? All things are possible to him who believes."
9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out with tears, "I believe. Help my unbelief!"
9:25 When Jesus saw that a multitude came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to him, "You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him, and enter no more into him!"
9:26 Having cried out, and convulsed him greatly, it came out. The boy became like one dead; so much that most of them said, "He is dead."
9:27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and raised him up; and he arose.
9:28 When he had come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, "Why couldn`t we cast it out?"
9:29 He said to them, "This kind can come out by nothing, except by prayer and fasting."
9:30 They went forth from there, and passed through Galilee. He didn`t want anyone to know it.
9:32 But they didn`t understand the saying, and were afraid to ask him.
9:33 He came to Capernaum, and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you arguing among yourselves on the way?"
9:34 But they were silent, for they had disputed one with another on the way about who was the greatest.
9:35 He sat down, and called the twelve; and he said to them, "If any man wants to be first, he will be last of all, and servant of all."
9:37 Whoever receives one such little child in my name, receives me, and whoever receives me, doesn`t receive me, but him who sent me."
9:39 But Jesus said, "Don`t forbid him, for there is no one who will do a mighty work in my name, and be able quickly to speak evil of me.
9:40 For whoever is not against us is on our side.
9:42 Whoever will cause one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
9:44 `where their worm doesn`t die, and the fire is not quenched.`
9:45 If your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life lame, rather than having your two feet to be cast into Gehenna, into the fire that will never be quenched --
9:46 `where their worm doesn`t die, and the fire is not quenched.`
9:48 `where their worm doesn`t die, and the fire is not quenched.`
