English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



13:1And some [people] were present at that very time, reporting to Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.
13:2And Jesus answered and said to them, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all [other] Galileans, because they suffered such things?
13:3Not at all, I tell you; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.
13:4Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that these were offenders more than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem?
13:5Not at all, I tell you; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish."
13:6He also spoke this parable: "A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit on it and found none.
13:7Then he said to the vinedresser, 'Look, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and I haven't found [any]. Cut it down; why does it even waste the ground?'
13:8But he answered and said to him, 'Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it.
13:9And if it produces fruit, [fine]. But if not, in the coming [year,] you can cut it down.' "
13:10Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath.
13:11And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and she was bent over and was not able to straighten herself up.
13:12And seeing her, Jesus called her to [Him] and said, "Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity."
13:13And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and was glorifying God.
13:14But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the crowd, "There are six days in which one should work; therefore come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day."
13:15The Lord then answered him and said, "Hypocrites! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath loose his ox or donkey from the stall, and lead it away to water it?
13:16So ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound, lo, these eighteen years, should she not be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath?"
13:17And when He said these things, all His adversaries were put to shame; and all the crowd was rejoicing over all the glorious things which were done by Him.
13:18Then He said, "What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it?
13:19It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden; and it grew and became a large tree, and the birds of the air nested in its branches."
13:20Again He said, "To what shall I compare the kingdom of God?
13:21It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal until it was all leavened."
13:22And He was traveling through various cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
13:23Then one said to Him, "Lord, are there few who are saved?"And He said to them,
13:24Strive to enter through the narrow gate, because many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.
13:25When once the Master of the house has risen up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open for us,' and answering He will say to you, 'I do not know you, where you are from.'
13:26Then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.'
13:27But He will say, 'I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.'
13:28There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves being cast out.
13:29And they will come from the east and the west, and the north and the south, and will recline [to eat] in the kingdom of God.
13:30And behold, there are last who shall be first, and there are first who shall be last."
13:31On that very day some Pharisees came, saying to Him, "Get out and go from here, for Herod wants to kill You."
13:32And He said to them, "Go and say to that fox, 'Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.'
13:33Nevertheless I must journey today, tomorrow, and the day following; for it is not possible [for] a prophet to perish outside of Jerusalem.
13:34"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, like a hen [gathers] her brood under her wings, but you were not willing!
13:35See! Your house is left to you desolate; and I say to you, you shall by no means see Me until [the time] comes when you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' "

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
