English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



1:1Paul and Timothy, bondservants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, together with the overseers and ministers:
1:2Grace to you and peace from God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
1:4always in every prayer of mine in behalf of you all, with joy,
1:5for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now,
1:6having been persuaded of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Christ Jesus;
1:7just as it is right for me to think this concerning you all, because I have you in my heart, both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace.
1:8For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ.
1:9And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and all perception,
1:10that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ,
1:11having been filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
1:12But I want you to know, brothers, that the things [which happened ]to me have come about for the advancement of the gospel,
1:13so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ;
1:14and most of the brothers in the Lord, having been persuaded by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word fearlessly.
1:15Some indeed are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will:
1:16The [former ]proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains;
1:17but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel.
1:18What then? Nevertheless in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice; yes, and I will rejoice.
1:19For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
1:20according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I will be ashamed, but with utmost boldness, as always, now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.
1:21For to me, to live [is] Christ, and to die [is] gain.
1:22But if I am to live on in the flesh, this to me will mean fruit from my labor; and what I shall choose I do not know.
1:23For I am hard pressed by the two, having a desire to depart and to be with Christ, [which is] far better.
1:24But to remain in the flesh is more needful for your sake.
1:25And having been persuaded of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith,
1:26that your boasting may abound in Christ Jesus in me through my coming again to you.
1:27Only conduct yourselves worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one soul striving together for the faith of the gospel,
1:28and not being terrified in anything by your enemies, which is to them a proof of destruction, but to you of salvation, and this from God.
1:29For to you it has been granted for the sake of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
1:30having the same struggle which you saw in me and now you hear is in me.

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
