English Majority Text Version 2009

New Testament



2:1On account of this we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.
2:2For if the word which was spoken through angels was confirmed, and every transgression and disobedience received a just retribution,
2:3how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which in the beginning was spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard,
2:4God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?
2:5For He did not subject the world which is to come, concerning which we speak, to angels.
2:6But someone somewhere testified, saying: "What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You visit him?
2:7You made him a little lower than the angels, You crowned him with glory and honor,
2:8You have subjected all things under his feet."For in subjecting to him all things[, ]He left nothing not subjected to him. But now we do not yet see all things having been subjected to him.
2:9But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, through the suffering of death, having been crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God, He might taste death for everyone.
2:10For it was fitting for Him, on account of whom [are] all things and through whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the Author of their salvation through sufferings.
2:11For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brothers,
2:12saying: "I will declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will sing praise to You."
2:13And again: "I will put My trust in Him."And again: "Behold I and the children to whom God has given Me."
2:14Therefore since the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same things, in order that through death He might destroy the [one] having the power of death, that is, the devil,
2:15and that He might set free these, as many as by fear of death through all of their lives, were subject to bondage.
2:16For indeed He does not take hold of angels, but He does take hold of the seed of Abraham.
2:17Therefore He was obligated to become like His brothers in all [respects], in order that He might become a merciful and faithful High Priest in things [pertaining] to God, in order that He might make propitiation for the sins of the people.
2:18For in that which He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to help those who are tempted.

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
