English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



3:1What then [is] the superiority of the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision?
3:2Much in every way! First of all, that they were entrusted with the [very ]words of God!
3:3For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God?
3:4By no means! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar, just as it is written: "That You may be justified in Your words, and You may prevail when You are judged."
3:5But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? [Surely] God, the [One ]inflicting wrath is not unrighteous, is [He]? (I speak as a man).
3:6By no means! For otherwise how shall God judge the world?
3:7For if by my lie the truth of God has abounded to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner?
3:8And why not say, "Let us do evil so that good may come"?-just as we are slandered, and just as some affirm that we say. [The] judgment of whom is just.
3:9What then? Are we [any] better? Not at all. For we previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.
3:10Just as it is written: "There is none righteous, no not one,
3:11There is none who understands; there is none who seeks God.
3:12All [have ]turned aside; together they became unprofitable; there is not [one] doing kindness, there is not so much as one."
3:13"Their throat is an opened grave; with their tongues they deceived"; "[the ]poison of asps is under their lips";
3:14"Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.
3:15Their feet are swift to shed blood;
3:16Ruin and misery are in their ways;
3:17And the way of peace they did not know.
3:18There is no fear of God before their eyes."
3:19Now we know that as many things as the law says, it speaks to those under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
3:20Therefore by works of the law no flesh shall be justified in His sight, for through the law [comes] [the] knowledge of sin.
3:21But now the righteousness of God apart from the law has been revealed, being witnessed to by the Law and the Prophets,
3:22even the righteousness of God, through [the] faithfulness of Jesus Christ, to all and upon all those that believe. For there is no distinction;
3:23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
3:24being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
3:25whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in His blood, for a demonstration of His righteousness through the passing over of the sins having previously committed, in the forbearance of God,
3:26for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, that He might be just and the justifier of he who has [the] faith of Jesus.
3:27Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through the law of faith.
3:28Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the law.
3:29Or is He the God of the Jews only? But is He not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also,
3:30since there is one God who will justify [the ]circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcised through faith.
3:31Therefore do we nullify the law through faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold [the] law.
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
