English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



16:1"These things I have spoken to you, so that you should not be made to stumble.
16:2They will excommunicate you; but a time is coming when everyone who kills you will think that he is offering God a service.
16:3And these things they will do [to you ]because they did not know the Father nor Me.
16:4But these things I have spoken to you, so that when the time comes, you may remember them, that I told you. But these things I did not say to you from the beginning, because I was with you.
16:5"But now I am going to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, 'Where are You going?'
16:6"But because I have spoken these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart.
16:7Nevertheless I speak the truth to you. It is profitable for you that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
16:8And when He comes, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
16:9of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
16:10of righteousness, because I am going to My Father and you see Me no more;
16:11of judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
16:12I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
16:13However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own [authority], but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will announce to you things to come.
16:14He will glorify Me, for He will take from what is Mine and He will announce it to you.
16:15All things which the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He takes from what is Mine and will announce it to you.
16:16"A little [while] and you will not see Me; and again a little [while] and you will see Me, because I am going to the Father."
16:17Then [some] of His disciples said to one another, "What is this that He says to us, 'A little [while] and you will not see Me; and again a little [while] and you will see Me'; and, 'I am going to the Father'?"
16:18Therefore they said, "What is this that He says, 'A little [while]'? We do not understand what He is saying."
16:19Now Jesus knew that they were desiring to ask Him, and He said to them, "Are you inquiring with one another that I said, 'A little [while] and you will not see Me; and again a little [while] and you will see Me'?
16:20Most assuredly I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be grieved, but your grief will be turned into joy.
16:21A woman, whenever she gives birth, has sorrow, because her hour has come; but whenever the child is born, she no longer remembers the anguish, on account of the joy that a human being has been born into the world.
16:22Therefore you also now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
16:23And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.
16:24Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
16:25"These things I have spoken to you in figures of speech; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figures of speech, but I will tell you plainly about the Father.
16:26In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will beseech the Father for you;
16:27for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God.
16:28I came forth from the Father and I have come into the world. Again, I am leaving the world and I am going to the Father."
16:29His disciples said to Him, "See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no figure of speech!
16:30Now we are sure that You know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this we believe that You came forth from God."
16:31Jesus answered them, "Now do you believe?
16:32Indeed a time is coming, and now has come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and you will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.
16:33These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but have courage, I have overcome the world."
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
