English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



14:1Now it came to pass, when He came into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees to eat bread on the Sabbath, that they were watching Him closely.
14:2And behold, there was a certain man before Him who had dropsy.
14:3And Jesus, answering, spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"
14:4But they were silent. And taking hold of him, He healed him, and let [him] go.
14:5Then He answered them, saying, "Which of you, having a son or an ox that has fallen into a pit, will not immediately pull him out on the Sabbath day?"
14:6And they were not able to answer Him regarding these things.
14:7So He told a parable to those who were invited, when He noted how they chose the places of honor, saying to them:
14:8Whenever you are invited by someone to a wedding celebration, do not sit down in the place of honor, lest one more honorable than you be invited by him;
14:9and he who invited you and him shall come and say to you, 'Give place to this [man],' and then you begin with shame to take the last place.
14:10But when you are invited, go and sit down in the last place, so that when he who invited you comes, he shall say to you, 'Friend, go up higher.' Then you will have glory in the presence of those who recline with you.
14:11For everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted."
14:12Then He also said to him who invited Him, "When you give a dinner or a supper, do not call your friends, nor your brothers, nor your relatives, nor rich neighbors, lest they also invite you back, and you be repaid.
14:13But whenever you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;
14:14and you will be blessed, because they do not have [anything] to repay you; for it will be repaid to you in the resurrection of the just."
14:15Now when one of those who sat at the table with Him heard these things, he said to Him, "Blessed is he who shall eat dinner in the kingdom of God!"
14:16Then He said to him, "A certain man gave a great dinner, and he invited many,
14:17and he sent his servant at dinnertime to say to those who were invited, 'Come, for all things are now ready.'
14:18But they all with one [accord] began to excuse themselves. The first said to him, 'I bought a field, and I must go and see it. I ask you, have me excused.'
14:19And another said, 'I bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you, have me excused.'
14:20Still another said, 'I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.'
14:21So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.'
14:22And the servant said, 'Master, it is done as you commanded, and still there is room.'
14:23Then the master said to the servant, 'Go out into the roads and hedges, and compel [them] to come in, so that my house may be filled.
14:24For I say to you that none of those men who were invited shall taste of my supper.' "
14:25Now great crowds were traveling with Him. And turning, He said to them,
14:26If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.
14:27And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
14:28For which of you, intending to build a tower, [does] not first sit down and count up the cost, whether he has the resources to complete it?
14:29Lest perhaps after he has laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all those who see it begin to mock him,
14:30saying, 'This man began to build and was not able to finish.'
14:31Or what king, going to engage another king in battle, [does] not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?
14:32Otherwise, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks the [terms] for peace.
14:33So likewise, every one of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be My disciple.
14:34"Salt is good; but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what shall it be seasoned?
14:35It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men cast it out. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"
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
