History of Moses.
Luke ix. 28-35.—And it came to pass about an eight days after thefe fayings, he took Peter, and John, and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and gliftering. And behold there talked with him two men, which were Mofes and Elias, who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease, which he fhould accomplish at Jerufalem. But Peter, and they that were with him, were heavy with fleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him. And it came to pass, as they departed from him, Peter faid unto Jefus, Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles, one for thee, and one for Mofes and one for Elias: not knowing what he faid. While he thus fpake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud. And there came a voice out of the cloud, faying, This is my beloved Son, hear him.
