English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



1:1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the church of God which is at Corinth, together with all the saints who are in all Achaia:
1:2Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
1:4who comforts us in all our tribulation, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, by means of the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
1:5Because just as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.
1:6Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer.
1:7(And our hope concerning you is steadfast); if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation, knowing that as you are partakers of the sufferings, thus also [you will partake] of the consolation.
1:8For we do not desire you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning our affliction which happened to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, beyond our strength, so that we despaired even of life.
1:9Yes, we have had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead,
1:10who delivered us from so great a death, and is delivering [us]; in whom we trust that He will still deliver [us],
1:11you also laboring together for us in prayer, that thanks may be given by many persons on your behalf for the gift [given] to us through many.
1:12For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience, that we have conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and especially toward you.
1:13For we do not write other things to you except what you read or also understand. And I hope that you will understand, even until the end
1:14just as also you have understood us in part, that we are your boasting, as indeed you also are ours, in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1:15And in this confidence I intended to come to you earlier, that you might have a second benefit,
1:16and through you to pass into Macedonia, and again from Macedonia to come to you, and by you to be sent on to Judea.
1:17Therefore, when I decided this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I decide, do I decide according to the flesh, that there may be with me "Yes, Yes,"and "No, No?"
1:18But [as ]God [is] faithful, our word unto you was not "Yes and no."
1:19For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us-by me, Silvanus, and Timothy-was not "Yes and no,"but in Him was "Yes."
1:20For all the promises of God in Him [are] "Yes,"and in Him "Amen,"to the glory of God through us.
1:21Now He who establishes us together with you in Christ and who has anointed us is God,
1:22who also has sealed us, and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a pledge.
1:23Moreover I call upon God as a witness against my soul, that in order to spare you, I came no more to Corinth.
1:24Not that we lord it over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy; for by faith you stand.

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
