English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



17:1Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: "Father, the time has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,
17:2just as You have given Him authority over all flesh, so that He will give eternal life to all You have given Him.
17:3And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.
17:4I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.
17:5And now, O Father, glorify Me alongside Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
17:6I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You have given them to Me, and they have kept Your word.
17:7Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You.
17:8Because I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received [them], and they knew truly that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me.
17:9I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for [those] whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.
17:10And all Mine are Yours, and Yours [are] Mine, and I have been glorified in them.
17:11And I am no longer in the world, yet these are in the world, and I am coming to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name which You have given to Me, that they may be one just as We [are].
17:12When I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. [Those] whom You have given to Me I guarded; and not one of them is lost except the son of perdition, so that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
17:13But now I am coming to You, and these things I speak in the world, so that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.
17:14I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
17:15I do not ask that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil [one].
17:16They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
17:17Sanctify them by Your truth; Your word is truth.
17:18Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
17:19And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by [the] truth.
17:20"I am not praying for these alone, but also for those who believe in Me through their word;
17:21so that they all may be one, just as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.
17:22And the glory which You have given to Me, I have given to them, so that they may be one just as We are one:
17:23I in them, and You in Me; so that they may be perfected in unity, and so that the world may know that You have sent Me, and You loved them just as You loved Me.
17:24Father, I desire that those also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, so that they may behold My glory which You gave to Me; because You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
17:25O righteous Father! Indeed the world did not know You, yet I knew You; and these knew that You sent Me.
17:26And I made known to them Your name, and I will make it known, so that the love [with] which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them."

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
