English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



1:2As it is written in the Prophets: "Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You."
1:3"A voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make His paths straight.' "
1:4John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
1:5And all the Judean country and the inhabitants of Jerusalem went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.
1:6Now John was clothed with camel's hair and with a leather belt around his waist, and was eating locusts and wild honey.
1:7And he was preaching, saying, "There comes One after me who is stronger than me, of whom I am not worthy to stoop down and to loose the strap of His[ ]sandal.
1:8I baptized you in water, but He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit."
1:9It came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
1:10And immediately, coming up from the water, He saw the heavens parting and the Spirit coming down upon Him like a dove.
1:11Then a voice came from the heavens, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I have found delight."
1:12And immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness.
1:13And He was there in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan, and was with the wild animals; and the angels were ministering to Him.
1:14Now after John was imprisoned, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,
1:15and saying, "The time has been fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
1:16And as He was walking alongside the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.
1:17Then Jesus said to them, "Come after Me, and I will make you become fishers of men."
1:18And immediately leaving their nets they followed Him.
1:19And having gone forth from there a little, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending their nets.
1:20And immediately He called them. And after they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired workers, they went away after Him.
1:21And they were going into Capernaum. And immediately on the Sabbath, He entered the synagogue and began teaching.
1:22And they were astonished at His doctrine, for He was teaching them as one who had authority, and not as the scribes.
1:23Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit, and he cried out,
1:24saying, "Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are-the Holy One of God!"
1:25But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!"
1:26And when the unclean spirit threw him into a convulsion, and crying out with a loud voice, came out from him.
1:27Then they were all amazed, so that they were disputing among themselves, saying, "What is this? What new doctrine is this, that He commands even the unclean spirits with authority, and they obey Him?"
1:28And immediately the report of Him went out into the whole surrounding region of Galilee.
1:29And immediately when they went out from the synagogue, they came to the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
1:30And the mother-in-law of Simon was lying sick with a fever, and immediately they spoke to Him about her.
1:31So He came and He raised her up, grasping her hand; and immediately the fever left her. And she began to serve them.
1:32Now when evening came, when the sun set, they were bringing to Him all those who were ill, and those who were demon-possessed.
1:33And the whole city was gathered together at the door.
1:34And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and He cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.
1:35And in the very early morning before dawn, He arose and He went out, and went away to a deserted place; and there He was praying.
1:36And Simon and those who were with Him sought Him out.
1:37When they found Him, they said to Him, "Everyone is looking for You."
1:38But He said to them, "Let us go to the neighboring towns, that I may preach there also, because for this reason I have come forth."
1:39And He was preaching in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and casting out demons.
1:40Then a leper came to Him, beseeching Him, kneeling before Him and saying to Him, "If You are willing, You are able to cleanse me."
1:41And Jesus, being moved with compassion, [and] reaching out His hand, touched him, and said to him, "I am willing, be cleansed."
1:42And when He said this, immediately the leprosy left from him, and he was cleansed.
1:43And [after] sternly warning him, immediately He sent him away,
1:44and said to him, "See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and bring as an offering concerning your cleansing those things which Moses prescribed, as a testimony to them."
1:45But he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread widely the report, so that He was no longer able to enter into a city, but was outside in deserted places; and they were coming to Him from everywhere.

English Majority Text Version


Welcome to the third edition of The English Majority Text Version (EMTV) of the Holy Bible. This latest edition has Greek explanatory notes throughout the Bible, to aid the reader in understanding the meanings in some select places of the original Koine Greek. Also, the third edition finds itself closer to the Robinson/Pierpoint printed edition of the Byzantine majority text, rather than the Hodges/Farstad text, which the EMTV was translated from. You will notice these differences in John 7:53-8:11, as well as the entire book of Revelation.

The English Majority Text Version draws from the work of both Dr.’s Hodges and Farstad, and their text, “The Greek New Testament According to the Majority Text,” as well as from Dr. Wilbur Pickering, ThM. PhD., and the EMTV has incorporated his hard work in the field of producing evidence of just what does constitute a majority reading, and, as a result of his work, and the work of others, John 7:53-8:11, and the book of Revelation reflect these variant readings. This is one of the great things about having a Bible that is translated from the majority of the trustworthy Byzantine manuscripts that are in existence—the much greater probability of accuracy.

On the other side of the fence, most modern Bibles are translated from a few scant manuscripts (literally), and more often than not they do not even agree with each other. Not so with a Bible that is translated out of the majority! The experts in linguistics who have put these readings together, and diligently compared the manuscripts, had hundreds and hundreds of manuscripts to compare. It is my prayer that this work will bring honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and to our God and Father; because all of this, all that we do, we do to know Him better, and to better understand His word, which He has given to mankind. “Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. (Prove 30:5,6). Peace of Christ to you all. In His service, Paul W Esposito Stauros Ministries
