English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



5:1Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the region of the Gadarenes.
5:2And when He got out of the boat, immediately there met Him from the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
5:3who had his dwelling among the tombs. And no one could bind him, not even with chains,
5:4because he often had been bound with shackles and chains, and the chains had been torn apart by him, and the shackles had been broken, and no one was able to subdue him.
5:5And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and bruising himself with stones.
5:6But seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran and worshipped Him,
5:7and crying out with a great voice he said, "What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure You by God, do not torment me!"
5:8For He was saying to him, "Come out from the man, unclean spirit!"
5:9And He was asking him, "What is your name?"And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion; for we are many."
5:10And he was imploring Him many [times] that He would not send them out of the region.
5:11Now there was a large herd of pigs feeding there near the mountain.
5:12So all the demons implored Him, saying, "Send us into the pigs, that we may enter them."
5:13And immediately Jesus gave them permission. And when the unclean spirits came out, they entered into the pigs, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, (there were about two thousand) and drowned in the sea.
5:14But those feeding the pigs fled, and they reported it in the city and in the country. And they came out to see what it was that had happened.
5:15Then they came to Jesus, and observed him who had been demon-possessed and had the legion, sitting and having been clothed and being of sound mind, and they were afraid.
5:16And those who saw it related to them how it happened to him who had been demon-possessed, and about the pigs.
5:17Then they began to implore Him to go away from their region.
5:18And when He got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed implored Him that he might be with Him.
5:19But Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, "Go home to your own family, and report to them all the things that the Lord has done for you, and how He had compassion on you."
5:20And he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all the things Jesus did for him; and all were marveling.
5:21Now when Jesus had crossed over again in the boat to the other side, a large crowd was gathered to Him; and He was beside the sea.
5:22And behold, there came one of the rulers of the synagogue, named Jairus. And seeing Him, he fell at His feet
5:23and was imploring Him many [times], saying, "My little daughter is near death, please come and lay Your hands on her, so that she may be healed, and live."
5:24And He went away with him. And a large crowd was following Him, and they were pressing against Him.
5:25Now a certain woman, suffering from a flow of blood for twelve years,
5:26and who had suffered many things under many physicians, and who had spent everything at her disposal, and was no better, but rather having become worse,
5:27when she heard about Jesus, she came from behind Him in the crowd and touched His clothing.
5:28For she was saying, "If only I may touch His clothes, I will be healed."
5:29And immediately the flow of her blood was dried up, and she knew in her body that she had been healed from her affliction.
5:30And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, He turned in the crowd [and] said, "Who touched My clothes?"
5:31But His disciples said to Him, "You see the crowd pressing against You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?' "
5:32And He was looking around to see her who had done this thing.
5:33But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
5:34And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."
5:35While He was still speaking, they came from the synagogue leader, saying, "Your daughter [has] died. Why do you still trouble the Teacher?"
5:36But Jesus, immediately when He heard the word being spoken, said to the synagogue leader, "Do not be afraid; only believe."
5:37And He did not permit anyone to follow along with Him except for Peter, James, and John the brother of James.
5:38And He went to the house of the synagogue leader, and observed a commotion, and [people] weeping and wailing, very much.
5:39And when He went in, He said to them, "Why are you making such commotion and weeping? The child is not dead, but she is asleep."
5:40And they were ridiculing Him. But putting them all out, He took along the father and the mother of the child, and those with Him, and He went in where the child was lying.
5:41And having grasped the hand of the child, He said to her, "Talitha, koumi,"which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise."
5:42And immediately the little girl arose and was walking about, for she was twelve years old. And they were overcome with great amazement.
5:43But He ordered them strictly that no one should know this, and said that something should be given her to eat.

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
