Matthew 17:1

After six days (met' hmerav ex).
This could be on the sixth day, but as Luke (Luke 9:28) puts it "about eight days" one naturally thinks of a week as the probable time, though it is not important.

Taketh with him (paralambanei).
Literally,

takes along}. Note historical present. These three disciples form an inner group who have shown more understanding of Jesus. So at Gethsemane. {Apart (kat' idian)
means "by themselves" ({alone}, monouv, Mark has it) up (anaperei) into a high mountain, probably Mount Hermon again, though we do not really know. "The Mount of Transfiguration does not concern geography" (Holtzmann).
