English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



2:1Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men,
2:2on behalf of kings and all those who are in authority, that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
2:3For this is good and acceptable before God our Savior,
2:4who desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.
2:5For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
2:6who gave Himself a ransom for all, the testimony in due time;
2:7for which I was appointed a herald and apostle-I speak the truth in Christ, I do not lie-a teacher of Gentiles in faith and truth.
2:8I desire therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
2:9Likewise also that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and discretion, not with braids or gold or pearls or expensive clothing,
2:10but which is fitting for women professing godliness, by means of good works.
2:11Let a woman learn in silence with all submission.
2:12And I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to have authority over a man, but to be in silence.
2:13For Adam first was formed, then Eve.
2:14And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, has come to be in transgression.
2:15Nevertheless she shall be saved through childbirth, if they remain in faith and love, and sanctification, with self-control.

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
