English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not despair,
4:2but we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor falsifying the word of God, but by the disclosure of the truth, commending ourselves to every man's conscience before God.
4:3But even if our gospel is hidden, it is hidden among those who are perishing,
4:4among whom the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that the illumination of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine on them.
4:5For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus' sake.
4:6Because it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who shined in our hearts to give [the] light of the knowledge of the glory of God in [the] face of Jesus Christ.
4:7But we have this treasure in clay vessels, so that the extraordinary character of the power may be of God and not of us;
4:8in everything being oppressed, yet not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;
4:9persecuted, but not abandoned; cast down, but not destroyed;
4:10always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, so that also the life of Jesus may be revealed in our body.
4:11For we who are living are always handed over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifest in our body.
4:12So then death is working in us, but life in you.
4:13And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to that which is written, "I believed, and therefore I spoke,"we also believe, therefore we also speak,
4:14knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will also raise us through Jesus, and will present us together with you.
4:15For all things[ are] for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.
4:16Therefore we do not despair, but even if our outward man is being destroyed, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
4:17For our momentary light affliction is working out for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
4:18while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are for a season, but the things which are not seen last forever.
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
