English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



3:1If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at [the] right [hand] of God.
3:2Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
3:3For you died, and your life has been hidden with Christ in God.
3:4Whenever Christ [who is] our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
3:5Therefore put to death your members on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and greed, which is idolatry.
3:6Because of which things the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience,
3:7in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
3:8But now you yourselves are to put off all [these]: wrath, anger, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.
3:9Do not lie to one another, since you have stripped off the old man with his practices,
3:10and have put on the new man who is renewed in full knowledge according to the image of Him who created it,
3:11where there is not Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.
3:12Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on hearts of compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience;
3:13forbearing one another and forgiving yourselves, if anyone should have a complaint against any; just as Christ forgave you, so you also [do].
3:14But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.
3:15And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
3:16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
3:17And whatever you may do in word or deed, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
3:18Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
3:19Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.
3:20Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing in the Lord.
3:21Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
3:22Bondservants, obey your masters according to the flesh in all things, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God.
3:23And whatever you may do, work [it] from your soul, as to the Lord and not to men,
3:24knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. For you serve the Lord Christ.
3:25But the [one] doing wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is not partiality.
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
