English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



7:1Now when He finished all His sayings in the hearing of the people, He entered Capernaum.
7:2And a certain centurion's servant, who was highly valued by him, was sick and about to die.
7:3And when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, asking Him that He might come and heal his servant.
7:4And when they came to Jesus, they begged Him earnestly, saying he was worthy for whom He should grant this,
7:5for he loves our nation, and he himself has built us a synagogue."
7:6Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far away from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, "Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof.
7:7Therefore I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You. But [just] say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
7:8For I also am a man appointed under authority, having soldiers under myself. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does [it]."
7:9When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turning to the crowd following Him, He said, "I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!"
7:10And when those who were sent returned to the house, they found the servant well who had been sick.
7:11Now it happened on the next [day], that He went into a city called Nain; and many of His disciples went with Him, and a great crowd.
7:12And when He came near the gate of the city, that behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And many people from the city was with her.
7:13When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep."
7:14Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, "Young man, I say to you, arise."
7:15So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He gave him to his mother.
7:16Then fear took hold of all, and they were glorifying God, saying, "A great prophet has risen up among us"; and, "God has visited His people."
7:17And this report about Him went out in all Judea, and all the surrounding region.
7:18Then the disciples of John reported to him concerning all these things.
7:19And summoning two of his disciples, John sent [them] to Jesus, saying, "Are You the Coming [One], or do we look for another?"
7:20And when they came to Him, the men said, "John the Baptist has sent us to You, saying, 'Are You the Coming [One], or do we look for another?' "
7:21And in that very hour He healed many from diseases, and torments, and evil spirits; and to many blind [people] He granted sight.
7:22Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: that the blind regain sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor are evangelized.
7:23And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me."
7:24Now when John's messengers had departed, He began to speak to the crowds concerning John: "What have you gone out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind?
7:25But what have you gone out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed those who are gorgeously appareled and live in luxury are in royal [palaces].
7:26But what have you gone out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and much more than a prophet.
7:27This is he about whom it is written: 'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You.'
7:28"For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater [than] he."
7:29And when all the people heard Him, even the tax collectors justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John.
7:30But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God for themselves, because they had not been baptized by him.
7:31"Therefore to what shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like?
7:32They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: 'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we mourned for you, and you did not weep.'
7:33"For John the Baptist has come neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.'
7:34The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!'
7:35And so wisdom is justified by all her children."
7:36Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And entering into the Pharisee's house, He reclined [to eat].
7:37And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she found out that He was reclining in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of perfume,
7:38and standing by His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and was wiping [them] with the hair of her head; and she was kissing His feet and anointing [them] with the perfume.
7:39Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke within himself, saying, "This [Man], if He were a prophet, would know who and what sort of woman [this is] who touches Him, for she is a sinner."
7:40And Jesus answered and said to him, "Simon, I have something to say to you."And he said, "Teacher, say it."
7:41There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other [owed ]fifty.
7:42And when they had nothing with which to pay back, he freely forgave them both. Tell [Me], therefore, which of them will love him more?"
7:43Simon answered and said, "I suppose [it is the one] to whom he forgave more."And He said to him, "You have judged correctly."
7:44And turning to the woman, He said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered into your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but this [woman] has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head.
7:45You gave Me no kiss, but this [woman] has not stopped kissing My feet since the time I came in.
7:46You did not anoint My head with oil, but this [woman] has anointed My feet with perfume.
7:47For which reason I say to you, her many sins have been forgiven, because she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little."
7:48Then He said to her, "Your sins are forgiven."
7:49And those who were reclining at the table with Him began to say within themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?"
7:50Then He said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you. Go in peace."
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
