English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



2:1You therefore, my child, be empowered by the grace which is in Christ Jesus.
2:2And the things which you have heard from me through many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be competent to teach others also.
2:3You therefore endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2:4No one serving as a soldier entangles [himself] in the affairs of [civilian] life, in order that he may please the [one] having enlisted him.
2:5And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.
2:6It is necessary for the hard-working farmer [to be] first to receive of the fruits.
2:7Consider the things I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.
2:8Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel,
2:9in which I endure hardship unto chains as an evildoer; but the word of God is not chained.
2:10Because of this, I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
2:11Faithful is this word: For if we died with [Him], we shall also live with [Him].
2:12If we endure, we shall also reign with [Him]. If we deny [Him], He also will deny us.
2:13If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.
2:14Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to dispute about words, useful for nothing, for the ruin of the hearers.
2:15Be diligent to show yourself approved unto God, a worker unashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2:16But shun profane and empty babblings; for they will advance to more ungodliness.
2:17And their word will spread like gangrene; of whom are Hymenaeus and Philetus,
2:18who have strayed concerning the truth, asserting that the resurrection has already occurred; and they overturn the faith of some.
2:19Nevertheless the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal: "The Lord knows those that are His,"and, "Let everyone naming the name of the Lord depart from unrighteousness."
2:20Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.
2:21Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the [latter], he will be a vessel for honor, having been consecrated and useful to the Master, having been prepared for every good work.
2:22Flee youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
2:23But reject foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they bring forth fights.
2:24And a servant of the Lord ought not to fight, but to be gentle to all, skillful at teaching, forbearing,
2:25in meekness instructing those that oppose, if God perhaps may give them repentance, to a full knowledge of the truth,
2:26and they regain their senses [and escape] out of the snare of the devil, having been captured alive by him to do his will.

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
