English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



6:1Then He went out from there and came to His hometown, and His disciples followed Him.
6:2And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many when they heard were astonished, saying, "Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, and such miracles are coming about by His hands?
6:3Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?"And they were offended at Him.
6:4But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own hometown, and among his relatives, and in his own house."
6:5and He could do no miracle there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick [people] and healed [them].
6:6And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.
6:7And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.
6:8He commanded them that they should take nothing for the journey except a staff, only-no knapsack, no bread, nor a copper [coin] for their money belts-
6:9but [to go] having put on sandals, and not to put on two tunics.
6:10And He said to them, "Wherever you may enter into a house, stay there until you go out from there.
6:11And as many as do not receive you nor hear you, as you leave from there, shake off the dust underneath your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom or for Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!"
6:12And when they went out, they were preaching that [people] should repent.
6:13And they were casting out many demons, and they were anointing with oil many who were sick, and were healing [them].
6:14And King Herod heard, for His name became well known. And he said, "John the Baptizer has been raised from the dead, and for this reason the miracles are at work in him."
6:15Others said, "He is Elijah."But others said, "He is a prophet, like one of the prophets."
6:16But when he heard, Herod said, "It is John, whom I beheaded; he has been raised from the dead!"
6:17For Herod himself had sent and laid hold of John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife; because he had married her.
6:18For John would say to Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife."
6:19Therefore Herodias held a grudge against him and was desiring to kill him, but she was not able;
6:20for Herod was afraid of John, knowing that he was a just and holy man, and he was protecting him. And when he heard him, he did many things, but he would hear him gladly.
6:21And when an opportune day arrived, when Herod for his birthday festivities was putting on a supper for his nobles, the high officers, and the chief men of Galilee,
6:22and when Herodias' daughter herself came in and danced, and pleased Herod and his dinner guests, the king said to the girl, "Ask me whatever you may want, and I will give it to you."
6:23He also swore to her, "Whatever you may ask me, I will give you, up to half of my kingdom."
6:24And when she had gone out, she said to her mother, "What shall I ask?"And she said, "The head of John the Baptist!"
6:25Immediately she came in with haste to the king and she requested, saying, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter."
6:26And the king became exceedingly sorry; yet, because of his oaths and of those who reclined with him, he did not want to refuse her.
6:27And immediately the king, having sent an executioner, commanded his head to be brought. And having departed, he beheaded him in the prison,
6:28and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother.
6:29And when his disciples heard, they came and took away his body and placed it in a tomb.
6:30Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and they reported to Him all things, both everything they had done and everything they had taught.
6:31And He said to them, "Come, you yourselves privately, to a deserted place and rest a little."For there were many coming and going, and they were not even finding opportunity to eat.
6:32And they went away to a deserted place in the boat privately.
6:33But the multitudes saw them going, and many recognized Him, and ran together there on foot from all the cities, and preceded them, and they came together to Him.
6:34And when He came out, Jesus saw a large crowd, and He had compassion on them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.
6:35And when it grew late, His disciples came to Him and said, "The place is deserted, and already the hour is late.
6:36Dismiss them, so that they may go into the surrounding farms and villages and may buy themselves food; for they have nothing to eat."
6:37But answering, He said to them, "You give them [something] to eat."And they said to Him, "Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii [worth of] bread and give them [something ]to eat?"
6:38But He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go and see."And when they found out they said, "Five, and two fish."
6:39Then He gave orders for them all to recline in groups on the green grass.
6:40And they reclined in parties of hundreds and of fifties.
6:41And taking the five loaves and the two fish, looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke the loaves, and was giving [them] to His disciples, so that they might set them before them; and the two fish He divided to all.
6:42So they all ate and were filled.
6:43And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments and from the fish.
6:44Now those who had eaten the loaves were five thousand men.
6:45And immediately He compelled His disciples to step into the boat and to go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, until He could dismiss the crowd.
6:46And having taken leave of them, He departed to the mountain to pray.
6:47Now when it was evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea; and He was alone on the land.
6:48Then He saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the fourth watch of the night He came to them walking on the sea, and He intended to pass by them.
6:49And seeing Him walking on the sea, they supposed Him to be a spirit, and they cried out;
6:50for they all saw Him and were troubled. But immediately He spoke with them, and said to them, "Have courage! [It is] I AM; do not be afraid."
6:51Then He went up with them into the boat and the wind ceased. And they were greatly astounded among themselves beyond measure, and were marveling.
6:52For they had not understood concerning the loaves, because their heart was hardened.
6:53And having crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there.
6:54And when they came out of the boat, immediately having recognized Him,
6:55running about that whole surrounding region, they began to carry about on beds those who were ill to wherever they would hear that He was.
6:56And wherever He would enter into villages, or towns, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and they would beg Him at least that they might touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were healed.

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
