And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.
They answered and said, "John the Baptist, and others [say] Elijah; but others, that one of the prophets of old has risen again."
And His disciples asked Him, "Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
But others were saying, "He is Elijah." And others were saying, "[He is] a prophet, like one of the prophets [of old]."
They told Him, saying, "John the Baptist; and others [say] Elijah; but others, one of the prophets."
They asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" And he said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" And he answered, "No."
