English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
4:2being tempted [for] forty days by the devil. And in those days He ate nothing, and afterward, when they were completed, He was hungry.
4:3And the devil said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, speak to this stone that it may become bread."
4:4But Jesus answered him, saying, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.' "
4:5Then the devil, leading Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
4:6And the devil said to Him, "All this authority I will give You, and their glory; because it has been given to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.
4:7Therefore, if You will worship before me, all will be Yours."
4:8And Jesus answered and said to him, "Get behind Me, Satan! It is written, 'You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.' "
4:9Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are God's Son, throw Yourself down from here.
4:10For it is written: 'He shall give His angels charge over You, to guard You,'
4:11"and, 'In [their] hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.' "
4:12And Jesus answered and said to him, "It has been said, 'You shall not tempt the LORD your God.' "
4:13Now when the devil had completed every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.
4:14Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news about Him went out through all the surrounding region.
4:15And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.
4:16And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He entered into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and He stood up to read.
4:17And the book of Isaiah the prophet was given to Him. And having unrolled the scroll, He found the place where it was written:
4:18"The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed;
4:19To preach the acceptable year of the LORD."
4:20And having rolled up the scroll, when He had given [it] to the attendant, He sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were looking intently at Him.
4:21And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your ears."
4:22And all were bearing witness to Him, and were marveling at the gracious words which came out of His mouth. And they said, "Is this not Joseph's son?"
4:23He said to them, "You will surely say this proverb to Me, 'Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your hometown.' "
4:24Then He said, "Assuredly I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his hometown.
4:25But I tell you truly, [there] were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine all over the land;
4:26but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a widow woman.
4:27And [there] were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian."
4:28So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,
4:29and rising up they threw Him out of the city; and brought Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, in order to throw Him down.
4:30But having passed through the midst of them, He went on.
4:31Then He went down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and He was teaching them on the Sabbath.
4:32And they were astonished at His teaching, because His word was with authority.
4:33Now in the synagogue [there] was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon. And he cried out with a loud voice,
4:34saying, "Ah! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are-the Holy [One] of God!"
4:35But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silenced, and come out from him!"And when the demon had thrown him down in their midst, it came out from him, and did not hurt him.
4:36And amazement came upon all, and they spoke among themselves, saying, "What [is] this word! For with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come out."
4:37And the report about Him went out into every place of the surrounding region.
4:38And when He arose from the synagogue, He entered into the house of Simon. But Simon's mother-in-law was sick with a high fever, and they made request of Him about her.
4:39And when He stood over her, He rebuked the fever, and it left her. And immediately rising up, she began to serve them.
4:40Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on each one of them and healed them.
4:41And also demons were coming out of many, crying out and saying, "You are the Christ, the Son of God!"And rebuking [them], He did not allow them to speak, because they knew that He was the Messiah.
4:42Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were searching for Him, and they came to Him, and tried to restrain Him from leaving them;
4:43but He said to them, "I must proclaim the good news [of] the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this [purpose] I have been sent."
4:44And He was preaching in the synagogues of Galilee.

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
