English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



5:1Now it came to pass, while the crowd pressed upon Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret,
5:2and He saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen, [after] getting out of them, were washing their nets.
5:3Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and He asked him to put out a little from the land. And sitting down, He began to teach the crowds from the boat.
5:4Now when He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, "Put out into the deep and lower your nets for a catch."
5:5But Simon answered and said to Him, "Master, we have labored all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will lower the net."
5:6And when they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish, and their net was tearing.
5:7So they beckoned to their partners who were in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they were sinking.
5:8When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!"
5:9For astonishment gripped him and all who were with him at the haul of fish which they had taken.
5:10And likewise also [it gripped] James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, "Do not fear; from now on you shall be catching men."
5:11And having brought the boats to land, they left everything and followed Him.
5:12And it came to pass while He was in a certain city, that behold, there was a man full of leprosy. And when he saw Jesus, falling on his face he begged Him, saying, "Lord, if You are willing, You can cleanse me."
5:13And reaching out His hand, He touched him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed."Immediately the leprosy departed from him.
5:14And He ordered him to tell no one, "But go and show yourself to the priest, and bring an offering for your cleansing, as a testimony to them, just as Moses prescribed."
5:15But the report about Him spread all the more; and great crowds came together to hear, and to be healed by Him from their sicknesses.
5:16But He Himself would withdraw into the wilderness and would pray.
5:17Now it happened on a certain day that He was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there[,] who had come out of every village of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was [present] to heal them.
5:18And behold, men [were] carrying on a bed a man who was paralyzed, and they were seeking to bring him in and to lay [him ]before Him.
5:19And when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, going up on the roof, they lowered him down with his bed through the tiles into the midst in front of Jesus.
5:20And seeing their faith, He said to him, "Man, your sins have been forgiven you."
5:21And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this [Man ]who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins except God alone?"
5:22But when Jesus perceived their reasonings, He answered and said to them, "Why are you reasoning in your hearts?
5:23Which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise and walk'?
5:24But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"-He said to the man who was paralyzed, "I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house."
5:25Immediately he rose up before them, taking up [the bed] which he had been lying on, he went off to his own house, glorifying God.
5:26And amazement gripped [them] all, and they were glorifying God, and they were filled with fear, saying, "We have seen extraordinary things today!"
5:27After these things He went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, "Follow Me."
5:28And leaving everything, he arose and followed Him.
5:29Then Levi made a great banquet for Him in his own house. And there was a great number of tax collectors and others who were reclining with them [to eat.]
5:30And their scribes and the Pharisees complained against His disciples, saying, "Why do You eat and drink with the tax collectors and sinners?"
5:31Jesus answered and said to them, "Those who are healthy have no need of a physician, but those who are ill.
5:32I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance."
5:33Then they said to Him, "Why do the disciples of John fast often and make prayers, and likewise also the [disciples] of the Pharisees, but Yours eat and drink?"
5:34And He said to them, "Can you make the groomsmen fast while the bridegroom is with them?
5:35But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them; then they will fast in those days."
5:36Then He spoke a parable to them: "No one puts a patch of a new garment on an old one; otherwise both the new [garment] tears, and also the patch that was taken out of the new [garment ]does not match with the old [garment].
5:37And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the wineskins and it will be spilled, and the wineskins will be ruined.
5:38But [one] must put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved together.
5:39And no one, having drunk old [wine], immediately desires new; for he says, 'The old is better.' "

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
