9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, Tell no one about the vision until after the Son of Man has been raised from the dead. 10And the disciples asked him, Why, then, do the scribes say that Elijah must come first? 11He replied, Elijah is indeed coming and will restore all things; 12but I tell you that Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but they did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of Man is about to suffer at their hands. 13Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them about John the Baptist.
