English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



6:1Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
6:2"Honor your father and mother,"which is the first commandment with a promise:
6:3"that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth."
6:4And fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and admonition of the Lord.
6:5Slaves, obey your masters according to the flesh with fear and trembling, in simplicity of heart, as to Christ;
6:6not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God wholeheartedly,
6:7with good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men,
6:8knowing that whatever good thing anyone does, the same he shall receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free.
6:9And masters, do the same things towards them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
6:10Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
6:11Put on the full armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the stratagems of the devil.
6:12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual [forces] of evil in the heavenlies.
6:13Because of this, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having accomplished all things, to stand.
6:14Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
6:15and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
6:16above all, taking up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
6:17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
6:18through every prayer and petition, praying in every season in the Spirit, being watchful to this same thing with all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints-
6:19and for me, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel,
6:20for the sake of which I serve as an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I must speak.
6:21But that you also may know my circumstances, and how I am doing, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful servant in the Lord, will make all things known to you;
6:22whom I have sent to you for this very purpose, that you may know our situation, and that he may comfort your hearts.
6:23Peace to the brothers, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
6:24Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
English Majority Text Version

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
