Galatians Chapter 1
1 Paulan apostle not of menneither by manbut by JesusChristand God the Fatherwho raised him from the dead
2 And all the brethren which are with meunto the churches ofGalatia
3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Fatherand from ourLord Jesus Christ
4 Who gave himself for our sinsthat he might deliver us fromthis present evil worldaccording to the will of God and ourFather
5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called youinto the grace of Christ unto another gospel
7 Which is not anotherbut there be some that trouble youandwould pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 But though weor an angel from heavenpreach any othergospel unto you than that which we have preached unto youlethim be accursed.
9 As we said beforeso say I now againif any man preach anyother gospel unto you than that ye have receivedlet him beaccursed.
10 For do I now persuade menor Godor do I seek to please menfor if I yet pleased menI should not be the servant ofChrist.
11 But I certify youbrethrenthat the gospel which waspreached of me is not after man.
12 For I neither received it of manneither was I taught itbutby the revelation of Jesus Christ.
13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jewsreligionhow that beyond measure I persecuted the church ofGodand wasted it
14 And profited in the Jewsreligion above many my equals inmine own nationbeing more exceedingly zealous of thetraditions of my fathers.
15 But when it pleased Godwho separated me from my mother swomband called me by his grace
16 To reveal his Son in methat I might preach him among theheathenimmediately I conferred not with flesh and blood
17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostlesbefore mebut I went into Arabiaand returned again untoDamascus.
18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peterand abode with him fifteen days.
19 But other of the apostles saw I nonesave James the Lord sbrother.
20 Now the things which I write unto youbeholdbefore GodIlie not.
21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia
22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which werein Christ
23 But they had heard onlyThat he which persecuted us in timespast now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
24 And they glorified God in me.
