English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



8:1In those days, when a great crowd had gathered, and not having anything to eat, Jesus, having summoned His disciples and said to them,
8:2I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been remaining with Me three days and have nothing to eat.
8:3And if I dismiss them hungry to their own houses, they will faint on the way; for some of them have come from a [great ]distance."
8:4Then His disciples answered Him, "From where will anyone be able to satisfy these [people] with bread here in this deserted place?"
8:5He asked them, "How many loaves do you have?"And they said, "Seven."
8:6So He commanded the crowd to recline on the ground. And He took the seven loaves, and having given thanks, He broke [them ]and was giving [them] to His disciples, so that they might set [them] before [the people]; and they set them before the crowd.
8:7And they had a few small fish; and having blessed [them], He said to set them before [the people].
8:8So they ate and were filled, and they took up an abundance of fragments, seven hampers [full].
8:9Now those having eaten were about four thousand. And He dismissed them.
8:10And immediately stepping into the boat with His disciples, He came to the region of Dalmanutha.
8:11Then the Pharisees came out and began to question Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, testing Him.
8:12And sighing deeply in His spirit, He said, "Why does this generation seek a sign? Assuredly, I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation."
8:13And having dismissed them, and stepping into the boat again, He went away to the other side.
8:14And they forgot to take bread, and except [for] one loaf, they did not have [any] with themselves in the boat.
8:15Then He charged them, saying, "Look out, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod."
8:16And they were reasoning among themselves, saying, "because we have no bread."
8:17But Jesus, knowing about it, said to them, "Why are you reasoning because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive or understand? Is your heart still hardened?
8:18Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember?
8:19When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?"They said to Him, "Twelve."
8:20"And when [I broke] the seven for the four thousand, how many hampers full of fragments did you take up?"And they said, "Seven."
8:21So He said to them, "How [is it] you do not understand?"
8:22Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and implored Him to touch him.
8:23And having taken the hand of the blind [man], He led him outside the village, and having spit on his eyes, and having laid His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.
8:24And when he looked up he said, "I see men like trees, walking."
8:25Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him to look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly again.
8:26Then He sent him away to his house, saying, "Neither go into the village, nor tell anyone in the village."
8:27Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He was questioning His disciples, saying to them, "Who do men pronounce Me to be?"
8:28So they answered, "John the Baptist; and others [say], Elijah; but others, one of the prophets."
8:29He said to them, "But who do you pronounce Me to be?"Peter answered and said to Him, "You are the Christ."
8:30Then He warned them that they should tell no one about Him.
8:31And He began to teach them that it was necessary for the Son of Man to suffer many things, and to be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and to be killed, and after three days to rise.
8:32He was speaking this word with boldness. And Peter, taking Him aside, began to rebuke Him.
8:33But when He had turned and saw His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, "Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men."
8:34And having summoned the crowd together with His disciples, He said to them, "Whoever is willing to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.
8:35For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's, will save it.
8:36For what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his soul?
8:37Or what shall a man give [as] an equivalent for his soul?
8:38For whosoever is ashamed of Me and My words among this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him, whenever He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."
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
