English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



11:1Oh, that you would bear with me a little in my foolishness; but indeed you do bear with me.
11:2For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy, for I have betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ.
11:3But I fear, lest perhaps as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
11:4For if he who comes [to you ]preaches another Jesus whom we did not preach, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you did not accept, you may well put up with him!
11:5For I consider [myself] [in] nothing to have been inferior to the most super apostles.
11:6But even if I [am] unskilled in speech, yet [I am] not [inferior ]in knowledge, but in every [way] I was made known to you in all things.
11:7Or did I commit sin in humbling myself in order that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you free of charge?
11:8I robbed other churches, taking wages [from them] to minister to you,
11:9and when I was present with you, and in need, I did not burden anyone; for the brothers who came from Macedonia supplied my need. And in everything I kept myself from being a burden to you, and so I will keep myself.
11:10As the truth of Christ is in me, that this boasting will not be silenced in me in the regions of Achaia.
11:11Why? Because I do not love you? God knows!
11:12But what I am doing, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity of those who desire an opportunity, that in what they boast they may be found just as we [are].
11:13For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
11:14And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
11:15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
11:16Again I say, let no one think me a fool. Otherwise, at least receive me as a fool, that I also may boast a little.
11:17What I speak, I speak not according to the Lord, but as it were, foolishly, in this confidence of boasting.
11:18Since many are boasting according to the flesh, I also will boast.
11:19For you bear with fools gladly, being wise [yourselves]!
11:20For you put up with it if someone enslaves you, if someone devours you, if someone takes from you, if someone exalts himself, if someone strikes you in the face.
11:21To our shame, I say that we were too weak [for that]! But in whatever anyone is bold (I speak foolishly) I am bold also.
11:22Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.
11:23Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I [am] even more: in labors far more, in beatings immeasurably, in imprisonments far more, in deaths often.
11:24By [the] Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one.
11:25Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have spent in the depth [of the sea].
11:26In journeys often, in dangers of rivers, in dangers of robbers, in dangers from my own race, in dangers from the Gentiles, in dangers in the city, in dangers in the wilderness, in dangers in the sea, in dangers among false brothers;
11:27in labor and hardship, in sleepless nights often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness-
11:28apart from what I leave unmentioned, what comes against me daily: the anxiety for all the churches.
11:29Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is caused to stumble, and I do not burn [with indignation]?
11:30If I must boast, I will boast about the things concerning my weakness.
11:31The God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.
11:32In Damascus the governor, under Aretas the king, was guarding the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desiring to arrest me;
11:33but I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped from his hands.
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
