English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



12:1Then Jesus, six days before the Passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had died, whom He raised from the dead.
12:2Then they made for Him a supper there; and Martha was serving, but Lazarus was one of those reclining [to eat] with Him.
12:3Then Mary, having taken a pound of very costly pure nard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
12:4Then one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, [son ]of Simon, who was about to betray Him, said,
12:5Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?"
12:6This he said, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to pilfer the things which were placed in it.
12:7But Jesus said, "Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial.
12:8For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always."
12:9Now a large crowd from the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead.
12:10But the chief priests took counsel, that they might also kill Lazarus,
12:11because on account of him many of the Jews were going [away], and were believing in Jesus.
12:12On the next day a large crowd which was coming to the feast, having heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
12:13took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and they were crying out, "Hosanna! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' The King of Israel!"
12:14Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, he sat on it; as it is written:
12:15"Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, sitting on the colt of a donkey."
12:16His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him, and they did these things to Him.
12:17Therefore the crowd which was with Him when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, was testifying.
12:18On account of this the crowd also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign.
12:19The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, "You see that you are not doing any good. Look, the world has gone after Him!"
12:20And there were some Greeks among those coming up, so that they might worship at the feast.
12:21Then they approached Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and they asked him, saying, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus."
12:22Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn Andrew and Philip told Jesus.
12:23But Jesus answered them, saying, "The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified.
12:24Most assuredly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
12:25He that loves his life shall lose it, and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it for eternal life.
12:26And if anyone serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant shall be also. If anyone serve Me, him My Father will honor.
12:27"Now My soul has been troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save Me from this hour'? But for this reason I came to this hour.
12:28Father, glorify Your name."Then a voice came out of heaven, saying, "I have both glorified it and will glorify [it] again."
12:29Therefore the crowd which was standing and heard were saying that it had thundered. Others were saying, "An angel has spoken to Him."
12:30Jesus answered and said, "This voice did not come for My sake, but for your sake.
12:31Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world shall be cast out.
12:32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all [peoples] to Myself."
12:33This He said, signifying by what kind of death He was about to die.
12:34The crowd answered Him, "We heard from the law that the Christ abides forever; and so how do You say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up'? Who is this Son of Man?"
12:35Then Jesus said to them, "[For] yet a little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going.
12:36While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you may become sons of light."These things Jesus spoke, and departing, He was hidden from them.
12:37But even though He had done so many signs in their presence, they did not believe in Him,
12:38that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he said: "Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?"
12:39Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again:
12:40"He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them."
12:41These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke about Him.
12:42Nevertheless even from among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be excommunicated;
12:43for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
12:44Then Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me.
12:45And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.
12:46I have come as a light into the world, so that whoever believes in Me may not abide in darkness.
12:47And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world.
12:48He that rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him-the word which I spoke, that [word] will judge him in the last day.
12:49For I have not spoken on My own [authority]; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.
12:50And I know that His command is eternal life. Therefore, whatever I speak, as the Father has said to Me, thus I speak."
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
