About-

"'The Resultant Greek Testament' is intended to exhibit in a compact and intelligible form the latest results of textual criticism. . . . I have judged it more convenient to the reader to put in the body of the page the text on which the majority of modern critics are agreed, relegating to the footnotes readings less numerously or less weightily sanctioned."

from the Preface

Weymouth based this "majority reading" text on the following editions: Lachmann (1842-50), Tregelles (1857-72), Tischendorf (1869-72), Alford (1874-77), the Bale edition (1880), Westcott and Hort (1881), the Revised Version readings (1881), Lightfoot's Pauline epistles (1865-75), Ellicott's Pauline epistles (1867-80), and Weiss's text of Matthew (1876). In addition, Weymouth notes that he made use of Vaticanus, Sinaiticus, and other uncials that earlier editors did not have available. For comparison, he used the Compultusian Polyglot, Robert Stephens' folio of 1550, and the Textus Receptus.

Bio(s)-

Richard F. Weymouth (1822-1902) was an English Baptist linguist and New Testament scholar. He was educated at University College, London, taught in Surrey, and later founded a school for boys in Plymouth. In 1869 he was appointed headmaster of a school for boys at Mill Hill, London, where he taught until 1886. He retired to devote himself to biblical study and textual criticism of the Greek New Testament. His final work, 'The New Testament in Modern English', was first published a year after his death, in 1903.
