English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



12:1Therefore, brothers, I exhort you through the compassions of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, [which is] your reasonable service.
12:2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and well pleasing and perfect will of God.
12:3For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself too highly, beyond what you should think, but to think soberly, as God has imparted to each one a measure of faith.
12:4For just as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,
12:5so we, [being] many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
12:6Having then gifts differing according to the grace having been given to us, [let us use them]: whether prophecy, [let us prophecy] according to the proportion of faith;
12:7whether ministry, [let us use it] in our ministry; whether teaching; in the teaching;
12:8whether exhorting, in the exhortation; whether sharing, with simplicity; whether leading, with diligence; whether showing mercy, with cheerfulness.
12:9[Let] love [be] without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil. Cling to that which is good.
12:10Be warmly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor preferring one another;
12:11not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
12:12rejoicing in hope, enduring in tribulation, devoted to prayer;
12:13sharing in the needs of the saints, pursuing hospitality.
12:14Bless those that persecute you; bless and do not curse.
12:15Rejoice with those that rejoice, and weep with those that weep.
12:16Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but [rather ]associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
12:17Repay no one evil for evil; providing that which is good before all men.
12:18If possible, as much as depends on you, keeping peace with all men.
12:19Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,"says the Lord.
12:20Therefore "If your enemy should hunger, feed him; if he should thirst, give him drink; for [by ]doing this you will heap burning coals upon his head."
12:21Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

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
