English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



21:1And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. And there was no more sea.
21:2Then I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, having been prepared like a bride having been adorned for her husband.
21:3And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them.
21:4And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying out; neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things have passed away."
21:5Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new."And He said to me, "Write, for these words are faithful and true."
21:6And He said to me, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give from the spring of the water of life freely to him that is thirsty.
21:7He that overcomes I shall give to him these things, and I shall be God to him, and he shall be to Me a son.
21:8But the cowardly, and unbelieving, and sinners, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and drug users, and idolaters, and all who are false shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
21:9Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls being full with the seven last plagues came to me and spoke with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the wife, the bride of the Lamb."
21:10And he carried me away in [the ]Spirit onto a great and high mountain, and he showed to me the holy city Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
21:11having the glory of God. Its radiance was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, [clear as] crystal,
21:12having a wall great and high, having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel:
21:13three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
21:14And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the twelve names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
21:15And he who spoke with me had a measure, a golden reed, so that he might measure the city, and its gates.
21:16The city is laid out [like] a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs. Its length, breadth, and height are equal.
21:17And its wall is one hundred and forty-four cubits, [by the] measure of a man, which is, of an angel.
21:18And the construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
21:19The foundations of the wall of the city [were] adorned with every precious stone: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald,
21:20the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.
21:21The twelve gates are twelve pearls: each one of the gates was [made ]of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.
21:22But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty is its temple, also the Lamb.
21:23The city had no need of the sun nor of the moon to shine, for the very glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
21:24And the nations shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth shall bring to it [the] glory and honor of the nations into it.
21:25And its gates shall by no means be closed by day, for night shall not exist there.
21:26And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it, so that they may enter.
21:27But there shall by no means enter into it any common [thing], and the [one] doing an abomination and a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
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
