English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



23:1Then the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate.
23:2And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this [Man] perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King."
23:3Then Pilate questioned Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?"He answered him and said, "You are saying [what is] [so]."
23:4But Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no guilt in this Man."
23:5But they insisted, saying, "He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee to here."
23:6When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked if the Man were a Galilean.
23:7And when he found out that He belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem in those days.
23:8Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad; for he had desired for a long time to see Him, because he had heard many things about Him, and he was hoping to see some miracle being done by Him.
23:9Then he questioned Him with many words, but He answered him nothing.
23:10And the chief priests and scribes stood, vehemently accusing Him.
23:11Then Herod, with his men of war, having treated Him with contempt, and having mocked Him, arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate.
23:12That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for previously they had been at enmity with each other.
23:13And Pilate, having called together the chief priests, the rulers, and the people,
23:14said to them, "You have brought this Man to me, on the charge of misleading the people. And indeed, when I examined Him in your presence, I found no guilt in this Man in the matters which you bring as charges against Him;
23:15and neither [did] Herod, for I sent you back to him; and indeed nothing worthy of death has been done by Him.
23:16Therefore when I have flogged Him, I will release [Him.]"
23:17(for it was necessary for him to release one to them at the feast).
23:18But they all cried out together, saying, "Away with this [Man], and release to us Barabbas"-
23:19who because of a certain insurrection having occurred in the city had been thrown into prison, and for murder.
23:20Pilate, therefore, wishing to release Jesus, again called out to them.
23:21But they cried out, saying, "Crucify, crucify Him!"
23:22Then he said to them the third [time], "Why, what evil did He do? I have found no guilt deserving death in Him. Therefore when I have flogged Him, I will release [Him]."
23:23But they were insistent, demanding with loud voices that He be crucified. And their voices and [those] of the chief priests prevailed.
23:24So Pilate decided [that] their request should be carried out.
23:25And he released whom they were requesting, who because of insurrection and murder had been thrown into prison; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
23:26And as they led Him away, they laid hold of a certain man, Simon a Cyrenian, [as he was] coming from the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might carry it behind Jesus.
23:27And a great multitude of the people followed Him, and women who also were mourning and lamenting Him.
23:28But Jesus, turning to them, said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
23:29For behold, the days are coming in which they will say, 'Blessed [are] the barren, and [the] wombs which did not give birth, and breasts which did not nurse!'
23:30Then they will begin 'to say to the mountains, "Fall on us!"and to the hills, "Cover us!"'
23:31For if they do these things in the green tree, what will happen in the dry?"
23:32And they also were leading two others with Him, evildoers, to be put to death.
23:33And when they came to the place which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him and the evildoers, one on the right, and one on the left.
23:34Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."And dividing His garments, they cast lots.
23:35And the people stood, observing. And the rulers with them also were sneering, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ, the elect of God."
23:36The soldiers also mocked Him, coming and offering Him sour wine,
23:37and saying, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself."
23:38And an inscription also was written over Him, in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew letters: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
23:39Then one of the evildoers who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, "If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us."
23:40But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?
23:41And we indeed justly, for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this Man did nothing wrong."
23:42Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come in Your kingdom."
23:43And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."
23:44Now it was about the sixth hour, and darkness came upon the whole land until the ninth hour.
23:45Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
23:46And Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, "Father, 'into Your hands I will commit My spirit.' "And after He said these things, He expired.
23:47And when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, "Certainly this was a righteous Man!"
23:48And all the crowds which came together for this spectacle, when they saw what had happened, beat their own chests and returned.
23:49But all His acquaintances, and the women who followed Him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.
23:50And behold, there was a man named Joseph, a council member, a good and just man
23:51(this [man] had not agreed to their decision and deed), from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who himself was also waiting for the kingdom of God.
23:52This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
23:53And having taken it down, he wrapped it in a linen cloth, and put it in a tomb cut out of rock, where no one had ever lain before.
23:54That day was the Preparation; the Sabbath was drawing near.
23:55And the women who had come with Him from Galilee followed after, and they observed the tomb and how His body was placed.
23:56Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And they rested on the Sabbath, according to the commandment.
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
