    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 9:2

    And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, etc. - For a full account of the nature and design of the transfiguration, see on Matthew 17:1 (note), etc.

    A high mountain - I have conjectured, Matthew 17:1, that this was one of the mountains of Galilee: some say Hermon, some Tabor; but Dr. Lightfoot thinks a mountain near Caesarea Philippi to be more likely.

    Was transfigured - Four good MSS. and Origen add here, And While They Were Praying he was transfigured; but this appears to be added from Luke 9:29.

    Wesley's Notes on Mark 9:2

    9:2 By themselves - That is, separate from the multitude: Apart - From the other apostles: and was transfigured - The Greek word seems to refer to the form of God, and the form of a servant, {mentioned by St. Paul, Php 2:6,7,} and may intimate, that the Divine rays, which the indwelling God let out on this occasion, made the glorious change from one of these forms into the other. Mt 17:1; Lu 9:28.
