Resplenduit facies ejus sicut sol,
vestimenta autem ejus facta sunt
alba sicut nix.
Et ecce apparuerunt illis
Moyses et Elias, loquentes cum Jesu.

His face shone like the sun,
and his clothes likewise became
as white as snow.
And behold, there appeared to them
Moses and Elijah, speaking with Jesus.
