1: Paul, an apostle, (not from men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) 2: And all the brethren who are with me, to the churches of Galatia: 3: Grace [be] to you and peace from God the Father, and [from] our Lord Jesus Christ, 4: Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: 5: To whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen. 6: I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ, to another gospel: 7: Which is not another; but there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8: But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach any other gospel to you than that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9: As we said before, so I say now again, If any [man] preacheth any other gospel to you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10: For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11: But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12: For I neither received it from man, neither was I taught [it], but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13: For ye have heard of my manner of life in time past in the Jews' religion, that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it; 14: And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. 15: But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called [me] by his grace, 16: To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: 17: Neither did I go to Jerusalem to them who were apostles before me: but I went into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. 18: Then after three years I went to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. 19: But I saw no other of the apostles, save James the Lord's brother. 20: Now the things which I write to you, behold, before God, I lie not. 21: Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia; 22: And was unknown by face to the churches of Judea which were in Christ: 23: But they had heard only, That he who persecuted us in times past, now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed. 24: And they glorified God in me.
