English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1Masters, provide to your bondservants what is just and fair, knowing that you also have a Master in [the] heavens.
4:2Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;
4:3praying at the same time also for us, that God would open a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, because of which I am also in chains,
4:4that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
4:5Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, redeeming the time.
4:6Let your word always be with grace, having been seasoned with salt, to know how you ought to answer each [one].
4:7Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful minister, and fellow servant in the Lord, will tell you all things about me.
4:8I am sending him to you for this very thing, that he may know your circumstances, and he may encourage your hearts,
4:9with Onesimus, the faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. They will make known to you all the things[ happening] here.
4:10Aristarchus my fellow prisoner greets you, with Mark the cousin of Barnabas (about whom you received instructions: if he comes to you, receive him),
4:11and Jesus who is called Justus. These alone are my fellow workers for the kingdom of God who are of the circumcision; they have proved to be a comfort to me.
4:12Epaphras greets you, who is one of you, a bondservant of Christ, always struggling for you in his prayers, that you may stand mature and complete in all the will of God.
4:13For I bear him witness that he has much zeal for you, and those in Laodicea, and those in Hierapolis.
4:14Luke the beloved physician greets you, also Demas.
4:15Greet the brothers who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas and the church in his house.
4:16And whenever this letter is read before you, see that it is also read in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you also read the [one] from Laodicea.
4:17And say to Archippus, "Take heed to the ministry which you received in the Lord, that you fulfill it."
4:18This greeting [is] by my [own] hand-Paul. Remember my chains. Grace be with you. Amen.

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
