Textus Receptus Bibles

English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



4:1I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who is going to judge the living and the dead in accordance with His appearing and His kingdom:
4:2preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all patience and teaching.
4:3For there will be a time when they will not put up with sound doctrine, but according to their own lusts, they will heap up for themselves teachers, tickling their ears,
4:4and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to myths.
4:5You however be watchful in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
4:6For I am already being poured out [as a drink offering], and the time of my departure has arrived.
4:7I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
4:8Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not only to me, but also to all those who have loved His appearing.
4:9Be diligent to come to me quickly.
4:10For Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and traveled to Thessalonica-Crescens to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.
4:11Luke alone is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for ministry.
4:12And Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus.
4:13Bring the cloak which I left with Carpus at Troas when you come-and the books, especially the parchments.
4:14Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works;
4:15whom you also should guard against, for he has greatly resisted our words.
4:16At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be reckoned to them.
4:17But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fulfilled, and all the Gentiles might hear, and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
4:18And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him [be] glory forever and ever. Amen!
4:19Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.
4:20Erastus stayed in Corinth, but Trophimus I have left in Miletus sick.
4:21Be diligent to come before winter. Eubulus greets you, as well as Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brothers.
4:22The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.

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
