English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1Now I say, for as much time as the heir is a minor, he does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,
4:2but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.
4:3Even so we, when we were minors, were enslaved by the elements of the world.
4:4But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
4:5so that He might redeem those under the law, so that we might receive the adoption.
4:6And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, "Abba, Father!"
4:7Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, also an heir of God through Christ.
4:8But at one time indeed, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature were not gods.
4:9But now, having known God, or rather, having been known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which once again you wish to be slaves?
4:10You observe days and months and seasons and years.
4:11I am afraid for you, lest somehow I have worked hard for you in vain.
4:12Brothers, I beseech you, become as I am, because I also [am] as you [are]. You have not wronged me at all.
4:13You know that because of weakness in the flesh I preached the gospel to you the former [time.]
4:14And my trial which was in my flesh you did not despise nor disdain, but as an angel of God you received me, even as Christ Jesus.
4:15What then was your blessing? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have torn out your own eyes and given them to me!
4:16Have I therefore become your enemy by speaking the truth to you?
4:17They are zealous about you in the wrong way; but they wish to shut you out, so that you will be zealous about them.
4:18But it is good to be zealous in a good thing always, and not only when I am present with you.
4:19My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you!
4:20And I wanted to be present with you just now and to change my tone; because I am uncertain about you.
4:21Tell me, you who wish to be under the law, do you not hear the law?
4:22For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by the servant girl, the other by a freewoman.
4:23But he who was of the servant girl was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through the promise,
4:24which things are symbolic. For these are two covenants: one in fact from Mount Sinai, bearing children into slavery, which is Hagar-
4:25for Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, and is in slavery with her children-
4:26but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.
4:27For it is written: "Rejoice, O barren, who does not give birth; break forth and shout, who does not have birth pangs; because the children of the desolate are many more than those of her who has a husband."
4:28But we, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise.
4:29But just as then the [one] who was born according to the flesh persecuted the [one born] according to the Spirit, so also it is now.
4:30But what does the Scripture say? "Cast out the servant girl and her son, for the son of the servant girl shall by no means inherit with the son of the freewoman."
4:31So then, brothers, we are not children of the servant girl, but of the free[woman].

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
