English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



9:1And passing by, He saw a man blind from birth.
9:2And His disciples asked Him, saying, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?"
9:3Jesus answered, "Neither this [man] nor his parents sinned, but so that the works of God should be manifest in him.
9:4I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.
9:5While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
9:6Having said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay from the saliva; and He applied the clay on the eyes of the blind [man].
9:7And He said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam"(which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
9:8Therefore the neighbors and those who previously saw him, that he was blind, were saying, "Is not this he who sat and begged?"
9:9Some said, "This is he."Others said, "He looks like him."He kept saying, "I am [he]."
9:10Therefore they said to him, "How were your eyes opened?"
9:11He answered and said, "A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, 'Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.' When I had gone and washed, I received [my ]sight."
9:12Then they said to him, "Where is He?"He said, "I do not know."
9:13They brought him who was once blind to the Pharisees.
9:14Now it was a Sabbath when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.
9:15Then again the Pharisees were asking him how he received [his] sight. And he said to them, "He put clay on my eyes, and I washed, and I see."
9:16Therefore some of the Pharisees were saying, "This Man is not from God, because He does not keep the Sabbath."Others said, "How can a sinful man do such signs?"And there was a division among them.
9:17They said to the blind [man] again, "What do you say about Him because He opened your eyes?"He said, "He is a prophet."
9:18But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he was blind and received [his] sight, until they called the parents of him who had received [his] sight.
9:19And they asked them, saying, "Is this your son, who you say was born blind? How then does he now see?"
9:20And his parents answered them and said, "We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind;
9:21but how he now sees we do not know, or who opened his eyes we do not know. He is of age; ask him. He will speak for himself."
9:22These things[ ]his parents said because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had agreed already that if anyone should confess that He was Christ, he would be excommunicated.
9:23On account of this his parents said, "He is of age; ask him."
9:24Therefore they called a second time the man who was blind, and said to him, "Give glory to God! We know that this Man is a sinner."
9:25He answered and said, "Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One [thing] I do know: that although I was blind, now I see."
9:26Then they said to him again, "What did He do to you? How did He open your eyes?"
9:27He answered them, "I told you already, and you did not listen. Why do you wish to hear [it] again? Do you also want to become His disciples?"
9:28[Then] they reviled him and said, "You are His disciple, but we are disciples of Moses.
9:29We know that God has spoken to Moses; but [as for ]this [Man], we do not know where He is from."
9:30The man answered and said to them, "Why, this is a remarkable thing, that you do not know where He is from; yet He opened my eyes!
9:31Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.
9:32Since eternity past it was unheard of that anyone opened the eyes of [one] having been born blind.
9:33If this [Man] were not from God, He could do nothing."
9:34They answered and said to him, "You were completely born in sins, and do you teach us?"And they cast him out.
9:35Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and having found him, He said to him, "Do you believe in the Son of God?"
9:36He answered and said, "And who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?"
9:37And Jesus said to him, "You have both seen Him and it is He who is speaking with you."
9:38Then he said, "Lord, I believe!"And he worshipped Him.
9:39And Jesus said, "For judgment I came into this world, that those who do not see may see, and those who see might become blind."
9:40Then [some] of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things, and said to Him, "Are we blind also?"
9:41Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains.
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
