English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



15:1We then who are strong are obligated to bear with the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
15:2Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification.
15:3For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, "The reproaches of those reproaching You fell on Me."
15:4For as many things as were previously written, were written for our own instruction, that through the patience and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we may have hope.
15:5Now may the God of patience and of encouragement grant you to be like-minded among one another, according to Christ Jesus,
15:6so that you may with one accord and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:7Therefore receive one another, just as also Christ received you, to [the] glory of God.
15:8Now I say that Christ Jesus has become a servant to the circumcision for the truth of God, in order to confirm the promises to the fathers,
15:9and that the Gentiles might glorify God on behalf of His mercy, as it is written: "For this reason I will confess to You among the Gentiles, and I will sing praise to Your name."
15:10And again he says: "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people!"
15:11And again: "Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Praise Him, all you peoples!"
15:12And again, Isaiah says: "There shall be the root of Jesse; and He that shall rise to rule over the Gentiles, in Him the Gentiles shall hope."
15:13Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
15:14Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, having been filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish others.
15:15And I write more boldly to you brothers, in part, as reminding you, because of the grace having been given to me by God,
15:16that I should be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God as a priest, so that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
15:17Therefore I have something to boast of in Christ Jesus in the things pertaining to God.
15:18For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ did not work out through me, in word and deed, for the obedience of [the] Gentiles-
15:19in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and as far as Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
15:20And so eagerly striving to evangelize not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon the foundation of another,
15:21but as it is written: "To whom He was not announced, they shall see; and those who have not heard shall understand."
15:22For this reason I also have been hindered many times from coming to you.
15:23But now no longer having a place in these regions, and having a longing to come to you for many years,
15:24whenever I travel to Spain, I shall come to you. For I hope [while] traveling through to see you, and to be sent forward there by you, if I may be filled in part [from] you first.
15:25But now I am traveling to Jerusalem ministering to the saints.
15:26For Macedonia and Achaia thought it good to make some contribution for the poor among the saints in Jerusalem.
15:27For they thought it good, and they are their debtors. For if the Gentiles shared in spiritual things, they are obligated also to minister to them in material things.
15:28Therefore, having finished and having sealed to them this fruit, I shall go by way of you to Spain.
15:29But I know that coming to you, I shall come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.
15:30Now I beg you, brothers, through the Lord Jesus Christ, and through the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in prayers to God on my behalf,
15:31that I may be delivered from those in Judea who do not believe, and that my service for Jerusalem may be acceptable to the saints,
15:32so that in joy I may come to you through the will of God, and may be refreshed together with you.
15:33Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
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
