English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



5:1For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made by hand, eternal in the heavens.
5:2For also in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven,
5:3if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.
5:4For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, inasmuch as we do not desire to be stripped, but to put on [clothing], that that which is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
5:5Now He who has prepared us for this same thing is God, who also gave to us the down payment of the Spirit.
5:6Therefore always being confident, and knowing that while we are in the body, we are away from home from the Lord
5:7(for we walk by faith, not by sight),
5:8but we are confident and prefer rather to be away from home from the body, and to be at home with the Lord.
5:9Therefore also we have as our ambition, whether being at home, or being away from home, to be well pleasing to Him.
5:10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, in accordance with the things which he did, whether good or bad.
5:11Knowing, therefore, the fear of the Lord, we persuade men; but we have been made known to God. And I also hope to have been made known in your consciences.
5:12For we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give to you an opportunity of boasting on our behalf, so that you may have [an answer] for those who boast in appearance and not in heart.
5:13For if we were beside ourselves, it [was] for God; or if we are of sound mind, [it is] for you.
5:14For the love of Christ compels us, having concluded this: that if One died for all, then all died;
5:15and He died for all, so that they who live should live no longer for themselves, but for the [One] who died for them and rose again.
5:16Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know [Him thus] no longer.
5:17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, all things have become new.
5:18And all things are of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and who gave to us the ministry of this reconciliation,
5:19that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not reckoning their transgressions to them, and committing to us the word of this reconciliation.
5:20Now then, we serve as ambassadors for Christ, as though God were appealing through us: we implore [you] on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God.
5:21For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
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
