English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



1:1Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead),
1:2and all the brothers with me, to the churches of Galatia:
1:3Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,
1:4who gave Himself for our sins, so that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,
1:5to whom [be] glory forever and ever. Amen.
1:6I marvel that you are turning so quickly from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel,
1:7which is not another; except there are certain people who trouble you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ.
1:8But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach a gospel to you other than what we preached to you, let him be accursed.
1:9As we have said before, and I say again just now, if anyone preaches a gospel to you other than what you received, let him be accursed.
1:10For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.
1:11But I make known to you, brothers, the gospel preached by me is not according to man.
1:12For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1:13For you have heard of my former conduct at one time in Judaism, that beyond measure I used to persecute the church of God, and I was devastating it.
1:14And I was advancing in Judaism above many my own age, being far more zealous for the traditions of my forefathers.
1:15But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb and called me through His grace,
1:16to reveal His Son in me, so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood,
1:17neither did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned once more to Damascus.
1:18Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Peter, and I stayed with him fifteen days.
1:19But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother.
1:20Now what I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie.
1:21Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
1:22And I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea which are in Christ.
1:23But they heard only, "He who persecuted us in times past now preaches the faith which at one time he was devastating."
1:24And they glorified God in me.

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
