Matthew 17:4 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Let us make (ποιήσωμεν)

But the best texts read, ποιήσω, I will make, which is more characteristic of Peter. He would erect the booths himself.

Three tabernacles (σκηνάς)

Tents or booths, out o the brushwood lying near. Peter realized that it was night, and was for preparing shelters into which the heavenly visitants might retire after their interview.
