1: Paul, an apostle (not from men, neither through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead), 2: and all the brethren that are with me, unto the churches of Galatia: 3: Grace to you and peace from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4: who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of this present evil world, according to the will of our God and Father: 5: to whom [be] the glory for ever and ever. Amen. 6: I marvel that ye are so quickly removing from him that called you in the grace of Christ unto a different gospel; 7: which is not another [gospel] only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8: But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach unto you any gospel other than that which we preached unto you, let him be anathema. 9: As we have said before, so say I now again, if any man preacheth unto you any gospel other than that which ye received, let him be anathema. 10: For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? or am I striving to please men? if I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ. 11: For I make known to you, brethren, as touching the gospel which was preached by me, that it is not after man. 12: For neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but [it came to me] through revelation of Jesus Christ. 13: For ye have heard of my manner of life in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and made havoc of it: 14: and I advanced in the Jews' religion beyond many of mine own age among my countrymen, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers. 15: But when it was the good pleasure of God, who separated me, [even] from my mother's womb, and called me through his grace, 16: to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles; straightway I conferred not with flesh and blood: 17: neither went I up to Jerusalem to them that were apostles before me: but I went away into Arabia; and again I returned unto Damascus. 18: Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas, and tarried with him fifteen days. 19: But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother. 20: Now touching the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not. 21: Then I came unto the regions of Syria and Cilicia. 22: And I was still unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ: 23: but they only heard say, He that once persecuted us now preacheth the faith of which he once made havoc; 24: and they glorified God in me.
