Galatians 1:1 ←
Paul, an apostle—not from men, nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead—
Galatians 1:2 ←
and all the brothers who are with me, to the assemblies of Galatia:
Galatians 1:3 ←
Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,
Galatians 1:4 ←
who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father—
Galatians 1:5 ←
to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
Galatians 1:6 ←
I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different “good news”,
Galatians 1:7 ←
but there isn’t another “good news.” Only there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the Good News of Christ.
Galatians 1:8 ←
But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any “good news” other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed.
Galatians 1:9 ←
As we have said before, so I now say again: if any man preaches to you any “good news” other than that which you received, let him be cursed.
Galatians 1:10 ←
For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? For if I were still pleasing men, I wouldn’t be a servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:11 ←
But I make known to you, brothers, concerning the Good News which was preached by me, that it is not according to man.
Galatians 1:12 ←
For I didn’t receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through revelation of Jesus Christ.
Galatians 1:13 ←
For you have heard of my way of living in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the assembly of God and ravaged it.
Galatians 1:14 ←
I advanced in the Jews’ religion beyond many of my own age among my countrymen, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.
Galatians 1:15 ←
But when it was the good pleasure of God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through his grace,
Galatians 1:16 ←
to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I didn’t immediately confer with flesh and blood,
Galatians 1:17 ←
nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia. Then I returned to Damascus.
Galatians 1:18 ←
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Peter, and stayed with him fifteen days.
Galatians 1:19 ←
But of the other apostles I saw no one except James, the Lord’s brother.
Galatians 1:20 ←
Now about the things which I write to you, behold, before God, I’m not lying.
Galatians 1:21 ←
Then I came to the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
Galatians 1:22 ←
I was still unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea which were in Christ,
Galatians 1:23 ←
but they only heard, “He who once persecuted us now preaches the faith that he once tried to destroy.”
Galatians 1:24 ←
So they glorified God in me.
