English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



5:1Do not sharply rebuke an older man, but [rather ]exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers,
5:2older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity.
5:3Honor widows who are really widows.
5:4But if a certain widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety to their own household and to make repayment to their parents; for this is acceptable before God.
5:5Now she who is really a widow and having been left alone, has set her hope on God, and continues in supplications and prayers night and day.
5:6But she who is living for pleasure is dead while she lives.
5:7And these things command, so that they may be blameless.
5:8But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his [own] house, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
5:9Let a widow be enrolled having become not less than sixty years, [the] wife of one man,
5:10having a reputation for good works, if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints' feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work.
5:11But refuse [to enroll] the younger widows; for whenever they grow lustful against Christ, they desire to marry,
5:12having condemnation because they have set aside their first faith.
5:13And besides they learn to be idle, going around from house to house, and not only idle but also gossipy and busybodies, speaking things [which are] not proper.
5:14Therefore I desire that the younger widows to marry, to bear children, to manage the house, to give no opportunity to the adversary because of reproach.
5:15For already some have turned aside after Satan.
5:16If any believing man or believing woman has widows, let [that one] relieve them, and do not let the church be burdened, that it may relieve those who are really widows.
5:17Let the elders having ruled well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine.
5:18For the Scripture says, "You shall not muzzle an ox threshing [grain],"and, "The worker is worthy of his wages."
5:19Do not receive an accusation against an elder unless on [the basis of] two or three witnesses.
5:20Those who are sinning rebuke before all, that the rest also may have fear.
5:21I charge you before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels that you observe these things without prejudice, doing nothing according to partiality.
5:22Lay hands on no one hastily, nor share in [the] sins of others; keep yourself pure.
5:23No longer drink water [only], but use a little wine on account of your stomach, and your frequent illnesses.
5:24The sins of some men are evident beforehand, preceding them to judgment, but some also follow after.
5:25Likewise also the good works [of some] are evident beforehand, and those which are otherwise cannot be hidden.

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
