English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



1:1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to [the] commandment of God our Savior and [the] Lord Jesus Christ, our hope,
1:2To Timothy, [my ]own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
1:3Just as I urged you to remain in Ephesus as I traveled into Macedonia, that you should command certain [people] not to teach differently,
1:4nor to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith.
1:5Now the goal of the commandment is love out of a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith,
1:6from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to futile talk,
1:7desiring to be teachers of the law, not understanding either what they say or what they affirm.
1:8But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully,
1:9knowing this: that the law is not laid down for the righteous, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for killers of fathers and killers of mothers, for murderers,
1:10for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is opposed to sound doctrine,
1:11according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God, [with] which I was entrusted.
1:12And I give thanks to the [One] who empowers me, Christ Jesus our Lord, because He considered me faithful, putting me into the ministry,
1:13I, who was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I was shown mercy, because, being ignorant, I did it in unbelief,
1:14and the grace of our Lord superabounded with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
1:15Faithful is this word, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.
1:16However, because of this I was shown mercy, so that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, as a pattern for those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.
1:17Now to the King of the Ages, immortal, invisible, [the] only wise God, [be] honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
1:18This charge I commit to you, [my] son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that you may war by them the good warfare,
1:19having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck,
1:20of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I handed over to Satan so that they may be taught not to blaspheme.

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
