English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh?
4:2For if Abraham was justified by works, he has [grounds for] boasting, but not before God.
4:3For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness."
4:4Now to him who works, his wage is not reckoned as a gift, but as his due.
4:5But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness,
4:6just as David also speaks of the blessing of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
4:7"Blessed [are] [they] whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, and whose sins have been covered;
4:8Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall by no means impute sin."
4:9Does this blessing then come upon the circumcision, or also upon the uncircumcised? For we say that faith was credited to Abraham as righteousness.
4:10How then was it credited? While he was circumcised, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
4:11And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which [he had while ]in uncircumcision, so that he should be the father of all those that believe, although uncircumcised, so that righteousness should also be imputed to them,
4:12and the father of circumcision to those not only of circumcision, but also to those following in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham[ had while] in uncircumcision.
4:13For the promise that he should be heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through [the] law, but through [the] righteousness of faith.
4:14For if those who are of [the] law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise has been nullified,
4:15because the law produces wrath; for where there is no law neither is there transgression.
4:16Therefore it is of faith that it may be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those[ ]of the law, but also to those of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all,
4:17(just as it is written, "I have appointed you a father of many nations") before God, whom he believed, the [One] who gives life to the dead and calls those things which are not as though they were;
4:18who, contrary to hope, on hope believed, so that he should become a father of many nations, according to what was spoken, "So shall your descendants be."
4:19And not weakening in faith, he did not consider his own body, already having been worn out (being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb,
4:20he did not waver at the promise of God in unbelief, but was empowered by faith, giving glory to God,
4:21and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to do.
4:22And therefore "it was credited to him as righteousness."
4:23Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was credited to him,
4:24but for us also, to whom it was going to be credited, those believing on Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead,
4:25who was delivered up for our transgressions, and was raised for our justification.

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
