English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



18:1Then He spoke a parable to them, that one must always pray and not lose heart,
18:2saying: "A certain judge was in a certain city, who did not fear God nor have regard for men.
18:3Now there was a widow in that city; and she kept coming to him, saying, 'Give justice to me against my adversary.'
18:4And he did not want to for a time; but afterward he said within himself, 'although I do not fear God, nor have regard for man,
18:5yet because this widow bothers me I will give justice to her, lest she wear me out by forever coming to me.' "
18:6Then the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge said.
18:7And God, shall He not execute justice for His own elect, who cry out day and night to Him, and yet He is patient with them?
18:8I tell you that He will execute justice for them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?"
18:9Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised the others:
18:10Two men went up to the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
18:11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, 'God, I thank You that I am not like other men-swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.
18:12I fast twice a week, I tithe [on ]all things, as many as I acquire.'
18:13And the tax collector, standing far away, would not so much as lift his eyes towards heaven, but beat on his chest, saying, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner!'
18:14I say to you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted."
18:15And they were bringing infants to Him, that He might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them.
18:16But Jesus, summoning them, said, "Allow the little children to come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.
18:17Assuredly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter into it."
18:18Now a certain ruler asked Him, saying, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
18:19So Jesus said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good except One, that is, God.
18:20You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not murder,' 'Do not steal,' 'Do not bear false witness,' 'Honor your father and your mother.' "
18:21And he said, "All these I have kept from my youth."
18:22So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, "Still one thing you lack: sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me."
18:23But when he heard this, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich.
18:24And when Jesus saw that he became very sad, He said, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!
18:25For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."
18:26And those who heard it said, "Who then is able to be saved?"
18:27But He said, "These things which are impossible with men are possible with God."
18:28Then Peter said, "See, we have left all and followed You."
18:29So He said to them, "Assuredly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God,
18:30who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the age to come eternal life."
18:31Then taking the twelve aside, He said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be accomplished.
18:32For He will be betrayed to the Gentiles, and will be mocked and insulted and spit upon,
18:33and having scourged [Him,] they will kill Him. And on the third day He will rise again."
18:34But they understood none of these things; this saying was hidden from them, and they did not know what was being said.
18:35Now it came to pass, as He was coming near Jericho, that a certain blind man sat alongside the road begging.
18:36And hearing a crowd traveling through [the city], he asked what this was.
18:37And they reported to him that Jesus the Nazarene was passing by.
18:38And he shouted, saying, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
18:39Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, "Son of David, have pity on me!"
18:40And having stopped, Jesus commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he drew near, He asked him,
18:41saying, "What do you desire [that] I should do for you?"And he said, "Lord, that I may receive [my] sight."
18:42Then Jesus said to him, "Receive [your] sight; your faith has made you well."
18:43And immediately he received [his] sight, and was following Him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw [this], gave praise to God.

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
