English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



14:1Now after two days it was the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might get hold of Him by guile, and [how ]they might kill [Him].
14:2But they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be a disturbance of the people."
14:3And while He was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as He was reclining for a meal, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly pure nard. And having broken the flask, she began to pour it out over His head.
14:4But some were expressing indignation to one another and saying, "Why has this waste of the perfume occurred?
14:5For it was possible [for] this to be sold for more than three hundred denarii, and to be given to the poor."And they were scolding her.
14:6But Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has worked a beautiful work for Me.
14:7For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you are able to do them good; but you do not always have Me.
14:8This [woman] did what she could; she undertook beforehand to anoint My body for burial.
14:9And assuredly I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what this woman did will also be spoken as a memorial of her."
14:10Then Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went off to the chief priests to betray Him to them.
14:11And having heard, they rejoiced and promised to give him money. So he was seeking how at some good time he might deliver Him up.
14:12Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb was sacrificed, His disciples said to Him, "Where do You desire that we go and prepare, that You may eat the Passover?"
14:13And He sent two of His disciples and said to them, "Go into the city, and a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him.
14:14And wherever he may enter, say to the master of the house, 'The Teacher says, "Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?"'
14:15"Then he will show you a large upper room, furnished and ready; there prepare for us."
14:16So His disciples went away, and came into the city, and found it just as He had said to them; and they prepared the Passover.
14:17And when it was evening, He came with the twelve.
14:18And while they were reclining and eating, Jesus said, "Assuredly, I say to you, one of you eating with Me will betray Me."
14:19And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to Him one by one, "[Is it] I?"And another said, "[Is it] I?"
14:20But answering He said to them, "[It is] one of the twelve, the [one] dipping with Me in the bowl.
14:21The Son of Man indeed is going away just as it is written of Him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man not to have been born."
14:22And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."
14:23And taking the cup and giving thanks, He gave it to them, and they all drank from it.
14:24And He said to them, "This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many.
14:25Assuredly I say to you, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."
14:26And having sung hymns, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
14:27Then Jesus said to them, "You all will be made to stumble because of Me on this night, for it is written: 'I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.'
14:28"But after I am raised, I will go before you into Galilee."
14:29But Peter said to Him, "Even if all will be made to stumble, yet not I."
14:30Jesus said to him, "Assuredly I say to you, that you, today on this night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times."
14:31But he kept saying all the more profusely, "If it is necessary for me to die with You, by no means will I deny You!"And they all said likewise.
14:32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, "Sit here while I pray."
14:33And He took Peter, James, and John with Him, and He began to be greatly amazed, and deeply depressed.
14:34Then He said to them, "My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death. Remain here and watch."
14:35And having gone forward a little, He fell on the ground, and He was praying, that if it were possible, the hour might pass from Him.
14:36And He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible to You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You [will]."
14:37Then He came and found them sleeping, and He said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Were you not strong [enough] to watch one hour?
14:38Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. Indeed the spirit is eager, but the flesh is weak."
14:39And He went away again and He prayed, saying the same thing.
14:40And having returned, He found them sleeping again, for their eyes were heavy; and they did not know what they should answer Him.
14:41Then He came the third time and said to them, "Sleep on now, and take your rest. It is enough! The hour has come. Behold, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
14:42Rise up, let us go. See, the [one] who betrays Me is at hand."
14:43And immediately, while He was still speaking, Judas arrived, being one of the twelve, and with him a large crowd with swords and clubs, [sent] from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
14:44Now His betrayer had given to them a sign, saying, "Whomever I shall kiss, He is [the One]; take Him and lead [Him] away safely."
14:45And when he arrived, immediately he approached Him and said to Him, "Rabbi, Rabbi!"and he affectionately kissed Him.
14:46Then they laid their hands on Him and seized Him.
14:47But a certain one of those standing by drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
14:48Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Have you come out, as against a bandit, with swords and clubs to arrest Me?
14:49Daily I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me. But that the Scriptures may be fulfilled."
14:50Then they all forsook Him and fled.
14:51Now a certain young man had followed Him, having a linen cloth thrown around his naked body. And the young men seized him,
14:52but leaving behind the linen cloth, he fled from them naked.
14:53And they led Jesus away to the high priest; and with him were assembled all the chief priests, the elders, and the scribes.
14:54But Peter followed Him from a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest, and he was sitting together with the attendants and warming himself at the fire.
14:55Now the chief priests and the whole council were seeking testimony against Jesus, in order to put Him to death, but found none.
14:56For many were testifying falsely against Him, but their testimonies were not the same.
14:57Then some stood up and were testifying falsely against Him, saying,
14:58"We heard Him saying, 'I will destroy this temple made with hands, and after three days I will build another [one ]not made with hands.' "
14:59But not even in this way was their testimony the same.
14:60And the high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, "Do You answer nothing? What are these men testifying against You?"
14:61But He kept silent and answered nothing. Again the high priest was questioning Him, saying to Him, "Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?"
14:62And Jesus said, "I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven."
14:63Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "What further need do we have of witnesses?
14:64You have heard the blasphemy! How does it appear to you?"And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.
14:65Then some began to spit on Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him with [their] fists, and to say to Him, "Prophesy!"And the attendants were striking Him with slaps [to the face.]
14:66Now as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came.
14:67And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, "You also were with Jesus the Nazarene."
14:68But he denied it, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you are saying."And he went outside into the forecourt, and a rooster crowed.
14:69And the servant girl seeing him again, began to say to those standing by, "This [man] is one of them."
14:70But again he was denying [it]. And a little later those who were standing by said to Peter again, "Truly you are one of them; for you are also a Galilean, and your accent is like [theirs]."
14:71Then he began to curse and to swear, "I do not know this Man whom you are speaking of"
14:72And for the second [time] a rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the word that Jesus had said to him, "Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times."And when he thought about it, he began to weep.
English Majority Text Version

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
