English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



11:1Now there was a certain man who was sick, Lazarus from Bethany, of the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
11:2Now it was that Mary who had anointed the Lord with myrrh, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
11:3Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, "Lord, behold, [he] whom You love is sick."
11:4And when Jesus heard, He said, "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it."
11:5Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
11:6Therefore when He heard that he was sick, He then stayed in the place where He was [for ]two days.
11:7Then after this He said to the disciples, "Let us go into Judea again."
11:8The disciples said to Him, "Rabbi, [just] now the Jews were seeking to stone You, and are You going there again?"
11:9Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
11:10But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him."
11:11These things He said, and after this He said to them, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I am going so that I may awaken him."
11:12Then His disciples said, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep he will get well."
11:13However, Jesus spoke about his death, but they thought that He was speaking about resting in sleep.
11:14Then Jesus said to them plainly, "Lazarus is dead.
11:15And I rejoice for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him."
11:16Then Thomas, who is called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, so that we may die with Him."
11:17Therefore when He had come, Jesus found that he had already been in the tomb four days.
11:18Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles away.
11:19And many of the Jews had come to the [women] around Martha and Mary, so that they might console them concerning their brother.
11:20Then Martha, when she heard that Jesus was coming, met Him, but Mary was sitting in the house.
11:21Then Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.
11:22But even now I know that whatever You may ask of God, God will give You."
11:23Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."
11:24Martha said to Him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection in the last day."
11:25Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He that believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
11:26And everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"
11:27She said to Him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world."
11:28And when she had said these things, she went out and secretly called Mary her sister, saying, "The Teacher is here and is calling for you."
11:29As soon as she heard [that], she arose quickly and came to Him.
11:30Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was in the place where Martha met Him.
11:31Then the Jews who were with her in the house and consoling her, when they saw that Mary rose up quickly and went out, followed her, saying, "She is going to the tomb, so that she may weep there."
11:32Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, seeing Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died."
11:33Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled.
11:34And He said, "Where have you laid him?"They said to Him, "Lord, come and see."
11:35Jesus wept.
11:36Therefore the Jews were saying, "Look how He loved him!"
11:37But some of them said, "Could not this Man, who opened the eyes of the blind, have done [something] to keep this man from dying?"
11:38Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone was lying upon it.
11:39Jesus said, "Take away the stone."Martha, the sister of the [one] having died, said to Him, "Lord, already there is a stench, for he has been dead four days."
11:40Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?"
11:41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, "Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
11:42And I knew that You always hear Me, but because of the people standing around I said [this], so that they may believe that You sent Me."
11:43And having said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!"
11:44And the [one] having died came out, bound hands and feet with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped in a handkerchief. Jesus said to them, "Loose him, and let [him] go."
11:45Therefore many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and seeing the things which Jesus had done, believed in Him.
11:46But some of them went away to the Pharisees, and told them the things which Jesus had done.
11:47Therefore the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, "What are we doing? For this Man works many signs.
11:48If we leave Him alone in this way, all will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and will take away both our place and nation."
11:49But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, "You don't know anything,
11:50nor do you consider that it is advantageous for us that one man should die for the people, and not that the whole nation should perish."
11:51Now this he did not say on his own, but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation,
11:52and not for that nation only, but also that He would gather together in one the children of God who were scattered abroad.
11:53Therefore from that day [on] they took counsel together, that they might kill Him.
11:54Therefore Jesus no longer walked openly among the Jews, but He went away from there into the country near the desert, to a city called Ephraim, and there He stayed with His disciples.
11:55And the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went from the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, so that they might purify themselves.
11:56Then they were seeking Jesus, and they were speaking with one another, standing in the temple, "What do you think-that He will definitely not come to the feast?"
11:57Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a command, that if anyone knew where He was, he should report [it], so that they might seize Him.
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
