English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



19:1And having entered, He passed through Jericho.
19:2And behold, there[ was] a man named Zacchaeus, and he was a chief tax collector, and this [man] was rich.
19:3And he was trying to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.
19:4And running up ahead in front, he went up into a sycamore tree so that he might see Him, because He was about to pass by that way.
19:5And when He came upon that place, Jesus looked up and saw him, and said to him, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay in your house."
19:6So he hurried and came down, and received Him, rejoicing.
19:7But when they saw it, they all were complaining, saying, "He has gone to be a guest with a sinful man."
19:8Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord, I give half of my possessions to the poor; and if I have extorted anything from anyone, I restore fourfold."
19:9And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham;
19:10for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
19:11Now as they heard these things, He told another parable, because He was near Jerusalem and because they thought the kingdom of God would appear immediately.
19:12Therefore He said: "A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return.
19:13And having called ten of his servants, he gave them ten minas, and said to them, 'Do business till I come.'
19:14But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, 'We will not have this man to reign over us.'
19:15And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, that he commanded those servants to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, so that he might know who gained what by trading.
19:16Then came the first, saying, 'Master, your mina has earned ten minas.'
19:17And he said to him, 'Well [done], good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.'
19:18And the second came, saying, 'Master, your mina made five minas.'
19:19Likewise he said to him, 'You also be over five cities.'
19:20Then another came, saying, 'Master, behold your mina, which I had laid away in a handkerchief.
19:21For I feared you, because you are a harsh man. You take up what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.'
19:22And he said to him, 'Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was a harsh man, taking up what I did not deposit, and reaping what I did not sow.
19:23Why then did you not give my money to a bank, and when I came, I would have collected it with interest?'
19:24And he said to those standing by, 'Take the mina away from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.'
19:25"But they said to him, 'Master, he has ten minas.'
19:26For I say to you that to everyone who has, [more] shall be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.
19:27Nevertheless bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay [them] before me.' "
19:28And having said these things, He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
19:29And it came to pass, as He drew near to Bethsphage and Bethany, to the mountain which is called Olivet, that He sent two of His disciples,
19:30saying, "Go into the village opposite you, in which when you enter you will find a colt tied up, on which no one of men has ever sat. Loose him and bring [him] [here].
19:31And if anyone asks you, 'Why are you loosing [him]?' thus you shall say to him, 'Because the Lord has need of him.' "
19:32So those who were sent departed and found it just as He told them.
19:33But as they were loosing the colt, the owners of it said to them, "Why are you loosing the colt?"
19:34And they said, "The Lord has need of him."
19:35Then they brought him to Jesus. And when they threw their own clothes on the colt, they set Jesus on him.
19:36And as He went, they were spreading their clothes under [Him] on the road.
19:37And as He was approaching the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen,
19:38saying: "'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!' Peace in heaven and glory in the highest! "
19:39And some of the Pharisees said to Him from the crowd, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples."
19:40But He answered and said to them, "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out."
19:41And as He drew near, seeing the city, He wept over it,
19:42saying, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things pertaining to your peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.
19:43For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and hem you in from every side,
19:44and they will level you to the ground, and your children with you; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the season of your visitation."
19:45And when He entered into the temple, He began to drive out those buying and selling in it,
19:46saying to them, "It is written, 'My house is a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.' "
19:47And He was teaching daily in the temple. But the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people were seeking to destroy Him,
19:48and were unable to do anything; for all the people were very attentive to hear Him.
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
