English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



16:1He also said to His disciples: "There was a certain rich man who had a manager, and this [man] was accused to him as wasting his possessions.
16:2And calling him, he said to him, 'What is this I hear about you? Render an account of your management, for you can no longer be manager.'
16:3"Then the manager said within himself, 'What shall I do? For my master is taking the management away from me. I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg.
16:4I know what I will do, so that whenever I am removed from the management, they will receive me into their houses.'
16:5And having summoned each one of his master's debtors to him, he said to the first, 'How much do you owe my master?'
16:6And he said, 'A hundred baths of olive oil.' So he said to him, 'Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.'
16:7Then he said to another, 'And how much do you owe?' So he said, 'A hundred measures of wheat.' And he said to him, 'Take your bill, and write eighty.'
16:8So the master praised the unrighteous manager because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this age are shrewder in their own generation than the sons of light.
16:9And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by the mammon of unrighteousness, so that whenever you fail, they may receive you into the eternal dwellings.
16:10He that [is] faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he that is unjust in what is least is also unjust in much.
16:11Therefore if you were not faithful with the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust to you what is genuine?
16:12And if you were not faithful in what belongs to another, who will give to you what is yours?
16:13No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."
16:14Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were hearing all these things, and they were mocking Him.
16:15And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. Because that which is exalted among men is an abomination before God.
16:16The law and the prophets [were] until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone enters forcibly into it.
16:17And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail.
16:18Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery; and everyone who marries a woman who is divorced from her husband commits adultery.
16:19"Now there was a certain rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen, enjoying himself splendidly every day.
16:20But there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores, who had been placed at his gate,
16:21and longing to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. And even the dogs came and would lick his sores.
16:22And it came to pass that the beggar died, and he was carried away by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried.
16:23And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham from afar, and Lazarus in his bosom.
16:24Then he cried and said, 'Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am suffering in this flame.'
16:25But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things, but now here he is comforted and you are suffering.
16:26And besides all this, between us and you a great gulf has been fixed, so that those who desire to cross [over ]from here to you are not able, nor may those from there cross over to us.'
16:27Then he said, 'Therefore I beseech you, father, that you would send him to my father's house,
16:28for I have five brothers, so that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.'
16:29Abraham said to him, 'They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.'
16:30And he said, 'No, father Abraham; but if someone from the dead should go to them, they will repent.'
16:31But he said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded should one rise from the dead.' "

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
