[Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany.]
MATTHEW xvii. 1-5.
And after six days, Jesus taketh Peter, James, and
John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high
mountain apart, And was transfigured before them:
and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment
was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared
unto them Moses and Elias, talking with him. Then
answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is
good for us to be here: if thou wilt let us make here
three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Moses,
and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a
bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice
out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son,
in whom I am well pleased : hear ye him.
