English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



8:1Now it came to pass afterward, that He was traveling through every city and village, preaching and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom of God, and the twelve were with Him,
8:2and certain women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities; Mary called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out,
8:3and Joanna the wife of Chuza, a supervisor of Herod, and Susanna, and many others who were ministering to them from their belongings.
8:4And when a large crowd had gathered, and the [people] came to Him from every city, He spoke by a parable:
8:5A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell alongside the road; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it.
8:6And other [seed] fell on rock; and when it grew up, it withered away because it had no moisture.
8:7And other [seed] fell among thorns, and when the thorns grew up with it, they choked it.
8:8But other [seed] fell into good ground, and when it grew up, it produced fruit a hundredfold."Saying these things He was calling out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"
8:9Then His disciples asked Him, saying, "What does this parable mean?"
8:10And He said, "To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest [they are] in parables, that 'Seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.'
8:11"Now this is the parable: The seed is the word of God.
8:12And those beside the road are they that hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, lest they believe and be saved.
8:13But those on the rock are they that, whenever they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of testing fall away.
8:14And that which fell among thorns, these are those, who when they heard, go out and are choked with anxieties, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity.
8:15But that which fell on the good ground, these are such who when they heard the word, with a noble and good heart, hold on to it and bear fruit with endurance.
8:16"No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts [it] under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.
8:17For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest, nor anything concealed which will not be known and come to light.
8:18Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has, [more] shall be given to him; and whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has shall be taken away from him."
8:19Then His mother and brothers came to Him, and could not approach Him because of the crowd.
8:20And it was told Him by some, who said, "Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You."
8:21But He answered and said to them, "My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it."
8:22Now it came to pass on a certain day, that He got into a boat with His disciples. And He said to them, "Let us go across to the other side of the lake."And they put out to sea.
8:23But as they sailed, He fell asleep. And a windstorm came down onto the lake, and they were being filled [with water], and were in danger.
8:24And they came to Him and awoke Him, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!"Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm.
8:25But He said to them, "Where is your faith?"But becoming afraid, they marveled, saying to one another, "Who then is this? For He commands both the winds and the water, and they obey Him!"
8:26Then they sailed to the region of the Gadarenes, which is opposite Galilee.
8:27And when He got out on the land, there met Him a certain man from the city who had demons for a long time. And he wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house, but among the tombs.
8:28And seeing Jesus and crying out, he fell down before Him, and with a loud voice he said, "What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me!"
8:29For He had commanded the unclean spirit to come out from the man. For it had seized him at times, and he was bound, kept under guard, with chains and shackles; and he broke the bonds and was driven by the demon into the wilderness.
8:30Jesus asked him, saying, "What is your name?"And he said, "Legion,"because many demons had entered into him.
8:31And he kept imploring Him that He would not command them to go out into the abyss.
8:32Now there was a herd of many swine feeding there on the mountain. And they kept imploring Him that He would permit them to enter them. And He permitted them.
8:33Then when the demons came out from the man, they entered into the swine, and the herd ran violently down the steep bank into the lake and drowned.
8:34And when those who fed [them] saw what had happened, they fled and reported [it] in the city and in the country.
8:35Then they went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus, and found the man from whom the demons had come out [of], sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and being of sound mind. And they were afraid.
8:36And those also who saw reported to them how the demon-possessed man was healed.
8:37Then the whole multitude from the surrounding region of the Gadarenes asked Him to go away from them, because they were gripped with great fear. And He got into the boat and returned.
8:38Now the man from whom the demons had come out was begging Him that he might be with Him. But Jesus sent him away, saying,
8:39"Return to your house, and tell what great things God has done for you."And he departed, proclaiming throughout the whole city all the things that Jesus did for him.
8:40So it was, when Jesus returned, that the crowd welcomed Him, for they were all waiting for Him.
8:41And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a leader of the synagogue. And falling at the feet of Jesus, he was imploring Him to enter into his house,
8:42for he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as He was going, the crowds were pressing against Him.
8:43Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who though she had spent [her] whole livelihood on physicians, was not able to be healed by anyone,
8:44approaching from behind, touched the hem of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped.
8:45And Jesus said, "Who touched Me?"When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, "Master, the crowds are pressing You hard and crowding You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?'
8:46But Jesus said, "Someone touched Me, for I perceived that power has gone out from Me."
8:47Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she recounted to Him before all the people the reason why she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.
8:48And He said to her, "Take courage, daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
8:49While He was still speaking, someone came from the ruler of the synagogue's house, saying to him, "Your daughter has died. Do not trouble the Teacher."
8:50But when Jesus heard it, He answered him, saying, "Do not be afraid; only believe, and she will be healed."
8:51When He came into the house, He permitted no one to enter except Peter, John, and James, and the father and mother of the child.
8:52Now all were weeping and mourning for her; but He said, "Do not weep; she is not dead, but asleep."
8:53And they were ridiculing Him, knowing that she had died.
8:54But He sent them all outside, and having grasped her hand, He called, saying, "Child, arise."
8:55Then her spirit returned, and she arose immediately. And He commanded [something] to be given to her to eat.
8:56And her parents were amazed, but He charged them to tell no one what had happened.

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
