Original text and translations
Et post dies sex assumpsit Iesus Petrum
et Iacobum et Ioannem fratrem eius
et duxit illos in montem excelsum seorsum:
et transfiguratus est ante eos.
Et resplenduit facies eius sicut sol:
vestimenta autem eius facta sunt alba sicut nix
et ecce apparuerunt illis
Moyses et Elias cum eo loquentes.
Respondens autem Petrus, dixit ad Iesum:
Domine, bonum est nos hic esse
si vis faciamus hic tria tabernacula
tibi unum et Moysi unum et Eliæ unum.
And after six days Jesus taketh unto him Peter
and James, and John his brother,
and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart:
And he was transfigured before them.
And his face did shine as the sun:
and his garments became white as snow.
And behold there appeared to them
Moses and Elias talking with him.
And Peter answering, said to 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.
 And as he was yet speaking,
behold a bright cloud overshadowed them.
And lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying:
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased: hear ye him.
 And the disciples hearing, fell upon their face,
and were very much afraid.
 And Jesus came and touched them:
and said to them, Arise, and fear not.
 And they lifting up their eyes saw no one but only Jesus.
 And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying:
Tell the vision to no man, till the Son of man be risen from the dead.
