English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



3:1O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was portrayed publicly among you as crucified?
3:2This only do I wish to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3:3Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, will you now be made perfect in the flesh?
3:4Have you suffered so many things in vain-If indeed [they] really [were] in vain?
3:5Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?-
3:6Just as Abraham "believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness."
3:7Know therefore that those who are of faith, these are sons of Abraham.
3:8And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, [saying] that, "In you all the nations shall be blessed."
3:9Therefore those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
3:10For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all the things which are written in the book of the law, to do them."
3:11But that no one is justified by the law before God is evident, for "The just shall live by faith."
3:12But the law is not of faith, but "the man who does them shall live by them."
3:13Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,"
3:14so that the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
3:15Brothers, I speak in human fashion: A covenant is of a man, yet having been confirmed, no one annuls or adds to it.
3:16Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises spoken. He does not say, "And to seeds,"as of many, but as of one, "And to your Seed,"who is Christ.
3:17And this I say, that the law, which was four hundred and thirty years later, does not annul the covenant previously confirmed to Christ by God, so that it make the promise of no effect.
3:18For if the inheritance [comes] by the law, it is no longer of promise; but God has given it to Abraham by promise.
3:19Why then the law? It was added on account of transgressions, until the Seed should come to whom it had been promised; and it was commanded through angels by the hand of a mediator.
3:20Now the mediator is not for one person, but God is one.
3:21Therefore, [is] the law against the promises of God? By no means! For if a law had been given which was able to give life, truly righteousness would have been by the law.
3:22But the Scripture has confined all under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
3:23But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, having been hemmed in for the faith which was to be revealed.
3:24Therefore the law has become our custodian, [leading us] to Christ, so that we might be justified by faith.
3:25But after faith has come, we are no longer under a custodian.
3:26For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
3:27For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
3:28There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
3:29And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

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
