English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



7:1Or do you not know, brothers (for I speak to those knowing the law), that the law has jurisdiction over a man as long as he lives?
7:2For the woman who is under a man has been bound by law to the living husband. But if the husband should die, she is released from the law of the husband.
7:3So then, while the husband is living, she will be called an adulteress if she becomes [married] to a different husband; but if her husband should die, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress, having become [married] to a different husband.
7:4Therefore, my brothers, you also were put to death to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another-to Him who was raised from the dead, so that we might bear fruit to God.
7:5For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions aroused through the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.
7:6But now we were released from the law, having died in [that] to which we were held fast, so that we should serve as slaves in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.
7:7What shall we say then? Is the law sin? By no means! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known lust unless the law had said, "You shall not covet."
7:8But sin, taking opportunity through the commandment, produced in me every kind of lust. For apart from the law sin [was] dead.
7:9For I was alive apart from the law once, but when the commandment came, sin revived, but I died.
7:10And the commandment, which [was] to [bring] life, I found to [bring] death.
7:11For sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, deceived me, and by it, killed me.
7:12Therefore the law indeed is holy, and the commandment holy and righteous and good.
7:13Then has that which is good become death to me? By no means! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through that which is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.
7:14For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, having been sold under sin.
7:15For what I am doing, I do not know. For what I want to do, I do not do; but what I hate, this I do.
7:16But if I do what I do not want to do, I agree with the law that [it is] good.
7:17But now [it is] no longer I [who] am doing it, but the sin living in me.
7:18For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but [how] to do the good, I do not find.
7:19For the good that I want to do I do not do; but the evil I do not want to do, this I practice.
7:20But if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I [who] do it, but the sin living in me.
7:21Therefore I find this law, that [when] I wish to do the right[ thing], evil is right there with me.
7:22For I delight in the law of God in my inner being.
7:23But I see a different law in my members, waging war against the law of my mind, and capturing me by the law of sin which is in my members.
7:24O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of death?
7:25I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself with the mind serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.

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
