English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, urge you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called,
4:2with all humility and meekness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love,
4:3being diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4:4There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling;
4:5one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
4:6one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.
4:7But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of the free gift of Christ.
4:8Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men."
4:9But that "He ascended"-what is it but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?
4:10He that descended, He is also the [One] who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.
4:11And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers,
4:12for the perfecting of the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ,
4:13until we all arrive to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to [the] measure of [the] stature of the fullness of Christ;
4:14that we may no longer be infants, being tossed as by waves, and being carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in regard to deceitful scheming,
4:15but speaking the truth in love, we may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ;
4:16from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the working of the measure of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the edification of itself in love.
4:17This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
4:18having been darkened in understanding, being estranged from the life of God, because of the ignorance which is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;
4:19who, having become callous, gave themselves over to debauchery, for the working of uncleanness with utmost greediness.
4:20But you did not thus learn Christ,
4:21if indeed you have heard Him and were instructed by Him, just as the truth is in Jesus:
4:22that you put off, concerning your former way of life, the old man which is being corrupted according to the deceitful lusts,
4:23and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
4:24and that you put on the new man which was created in the likeness of God, in true righteousness and holiness.
4:25Therefore, having put off falsehood, "Let each one speak truth with his neighbor,"for we are members of one another.
4:26"Be angry, and do not sin": do not let the sun set on your anger,
4:27nor give opportunity to the devil.
4:28Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working that which is good with his hands, in order that he may have something to share with him who has need.
4:29Let no corrupt word proceed from your mouth, but only what is good for edification, that it may give grace to them that hear.
4:30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
4:31Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and blasphemy be removed from you, with all malice.
4:32And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as also God in Christ forgave us.

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
