English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



2:1And you [He made alive,] being dead in transgressions and sins,
2:2in which you once walked according to the age of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit which is now working in the sons of disobedience,
2:3among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the senses, and were by nature children of wrath, as also the rest.
2:4But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
2:5even when we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
2:6and raised us up together, and seated us together in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus,
2:7that in the coming ages He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
2:8For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; [it is] the gift of God,
2:9not of works, lest anyone should boast.
2:10For we are His handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
2:11Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh-who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made by hands in the flesh-
2:12that at that time you were apart from Christ, being estranged from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, not having hope and atheists in the world.
2:13But now in Christ Jesus, you who once were far away have come to be near by the blood of Christ.
2:14For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and who destroyed the dividing wall of separation,
2:15having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, that He might create in Himself one new man [from] the two, [thus] making peace,
2:16and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, putting to death the enmity in Himself.
2:17And having come, He preached peace to you who were far away and to those near.
2:18Because through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
2:19So then, you are no longer strangers and aliens, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
2:20being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,
2:21in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
2:22in whom you also are being built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.

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
