English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and was baptizing more disciples than John
4:2(although Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples),
4:3He left Judea and went away into Galilee.
4:4But He needed to pass through Samaria.
4:5Therefore He came to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near the piece of land which Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
4:6Now Jacob's well was there. Therefore Jesus, having become tired from the journey, was sitting thus by the well. It was about the sixth hour.
4:7A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink."
4:8For His disciples had gone away into the city, that they might buy provisions.
4:9Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?"For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.
4:10Jesus answered and said to her, "If you had known the gift of God, and who it is that says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given to you living water."
4:11The woman said to Him, "Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water?
4:12Are You greater than our father Jacob,[ ]who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?"
4:13Jesus answered and said to her, "Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,
4:14but whoever drinks of the water which I shall give him will by no means ever thirst again. But the water which I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into eternal life."
4:15The woman said to Him, "Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw."
4:16Jesus said to her, "Go, call your husband, and come here."
4:17The woman answered and said, "I have no husband."Jesus said to her, "You have said well, 'I have no husband,'
4:18"for you have had five husbands, and [the one] whom you now have is not your husband; in this you have said truly."
4:19The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet.
4:20Our fathers worshipped on this mountain, and you [Jews] say that in Jerusalem is the place where it is necessary to worship."
4:21Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.
4:22You worship what you do not know; we [Jews ]worship what we know, because salvation is of the Jews.
4:23But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
4:24God [is] Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
4:25The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming"(who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will proclaim to us all things."
4:26Jesus said to her, "I am [He,] the [One ]speaking to you."
4:27And at this point His disciples came, and they marveled that He was speaking with a woman; however no one said, "What do You seek?"or, "Why are You speaking with her?"
4:28The woman then left her water jar, went her way into the city, and said to the men,
4:29Come, see a Man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?"
4:30They went out of the city and were coming to Him.
4:31But in the meantime the disciples urged Him, saying, "Rabbi, eat."
4:32But He said to them, "I have food to eat of which you do not know."
4:33Therefore the disciples were saying to one another, "Has anyone brought Him [something] to eat?"
4:34Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.
4:35Do you not say, 'There are still four months and the harvest comes'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and see the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
4:36And he who[ ]reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit unto eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
4:37For in this the saying is true: 'One sows and another reaps.'
4:38"I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors."
4:39And many of the Samaritans of that city believed in Him because of the word of the woman testifying, "He told me everything I ever did."
4:40So when the Samaritans had come to Him, they were asking Him to stay with them; and He stayed there two days.
4:41And many more believed because of His word.
4:42Then they were saying to the woman, "No longer because of your speech do we believe, for we ourselves have heard and know that this is truly the Christ, the Savior of the world."
4:43Now after the two days He went out from there and went to Galilee.
4:44For Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.
4:45Therefore when He came into Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things which He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also went to the feast.
4:46Then Jesus came again to Cana of Galilee where He made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman whose son was sick in Capernaum.
4:47When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea into Galilee, he went to Him and asked Him that He might come down and heal his son, for he was about to die.
4:48Then Jesus said to him, "Unless you [people] see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe."
4:49The nobleman said to Him, "Sir, come down before my child dies!"
4:50Jesus said to him, "Go; your son lives."And the man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and went away.
4:51And already as he was going, his servants met him and reported, saying, "Your child lives!"
4:52Then he inquired from them the hour at which he got better. And they said to him, "Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him."
4:53Therefore the father knew that it was at the same hour in which Jesus said to him, "Your son lives."And he himself believed, and his whole household.
4:54This again is the second sign Jesus did, after He had come out of Judea into Galilee.
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
