English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



12:1Now in the meantime, as an innumerable crowd had gathered together so that they were stepping on one another, He began to say to His disciples first of all, "Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
12:2For there is nothing covered that shall not be unveiled, and [nothing] secret that shall not be made known.
12:3Therefore whatever you have spoken in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in behind closed doors shall be proclaimed on the housetops.
12:4"And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have nothing further they can do.
12:5But I will show you whom you should fear: fear Him who after He kills, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!
12:6Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God.
12:7But the very hairs of your head have all been numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
12:8"Also I say to you, whoever confesses Me before men, him the Son of Man also will confess before the angels of God.
12:9But he who denies Me before men will be denied before the angels of God.
12:10And anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but to him who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven.
12:11Now whenever they bring you to the synagogues and rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say.
12:12For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you must say."
12:13Then someone from the crowd said to Him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me."
12:14But He said to him, "Man, who appointed Me a judge or an arbitrator over you?"
12:15And He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."
12:16Then He told a parable to them, saying: "The field of a certain rich man produced well.
12:17And he reasoned within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, because I have nowhere to gather my crops?'
12:18So he said, 'I will do this: I will tear down my barns and I will build bigger [ones], and there I will gather all my crops and my goods.
12:19And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid away for many years; relax; eat, drink, and be merry."'
12:20But God said to him, ['You ]fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have prepared?'
12:21So [is] he who accumulates treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
12:22Then He said to His disciples, "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will wear.
12:23Life is more than food, and the body is [more ]than clothing.
12:24Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storeroom nor barn; and God feeds them. How much more are you worth than birds?
12:25And which of you [by] worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
12:26Therefore if you cannot do a very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
12:27Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed like one of these.
12:28But if God so clothes the grass, although it is in the field today, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, by how much rather [will He clothe] you, O you of little faith?
12:29And do not seek what you may eat or what you may drink, and do not be anxious.
12:30For all these things the nations of the world seek after, but your Father knows that you need these things.
12:31But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.
12:32Do not fear, little flock, because your Father is well pleased to give to you the kingdom.
12:33Sell your possessions and give alms; make for yourselves money bags which do not grow old, an unfailing treasure in the heavens, where a thief does not come near, nor does a moth destroy.
12:34For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
12:35"Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning;
12:36and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding celebration, so that when he comes and knocks, immediately they may open to him.
12:37Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly I say to you, that he will gird himself and have them recline [to eat], and he will come and serve them.
12:38And if he comes in the second watch, or comes in the third watch, and find [them] so, blessed are those servants.
12:39But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what hour the thief was coming, he would have kept watch, and not allowed his house to be broken into.
12:40Therefore you also be ready, for in an hour that you think not, the Son of Man comes."
12:41Then Peter said to Him, "Lord, do You speak this parable only to us, or to all [people]?"
12:42And the Lord said, "Who then is a faithful and wise steward, whom his master will make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season?
12:43Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.
12:44Truly I say to you, that he will appoint him over all his possessions.
12:45But if that servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,' and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk,
12:46the master of that servant will come on a day which he does not expect, and at an hour which he does not know, and he will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
12:47And that servant who knew his master's will, and did not get ready or do according to his will, shall be beaten [with] many [blows].
12:48But he who did not know, yet did things worthy of [blows], shall be beaten [with] few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be demanded; and to whom much has been entrusted, of him they will ask much more.
12:49"I came to cast fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!
12:50But I have a baptism to be baptized [with], and how distressed I am till it is completed!
12:51Do you think that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.
12:52For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.
12:53Father will be divided against a son and a son against father, a mother against a daughter and a daughter against a mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law."
12:54Then He also said to the crowds, "Whenever you see a cloud rising from the west, immediately you say, 'A rainstorm is coming'; and it happens thus.
12:55And whenever you see the south wind blow, you say, 'There will be hot weather'; and it happens.
12:56Hypocrites! You know [how] to discern the face of the earth and of the sky, but how is it you do not discern this time?
12:57"And why do you not judge what is right, even of yourselves?
12:58When you go with your adversary to the magistrate, make an effort to make a settlement with him on the road, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the bailiff, and the bailiff throw you into prison.
12:59I tell you, you shall by no means depart from there till you have paid the very last mite."
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
