The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Galatians

Return to Index

Chapter 1

1

 Paul, apostle, not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God [the] Father who raised him from among [the] dead, 

2

 and all the brethren with me, to the assemblies of Galatia. 

3

 Grace to you, and peace, from God [the] Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, 

4

 who gave himself for our sins, so that he should deliver us out of the present evil world, according to the will of our God and Father; 

5

 to whom [be] glory to the ages of ages. Amen. 

6

 I wonder that ye thus quickly change, from him that called you in Christ's grace, to a different gospel, 

7

 which is not another [one]; but there are some that trouble you, and desire to pervert the glad tidings of the Christ. 

8

 But if even we or an angel out of heaven announce as glad tidings to you [anything] besides what we have announced as glad tidings to you, let him be accursed. 

9

 As we have said before, now also again I say, If any one announce to you as glad tidings [anything] besides what ye have received, let him be accursed. 

10

 For do I now seek to satisfy men or God? or do I seek to please men? If I were yet pleasing men, I were not Christ's bondman. 

11

 But I let you know, brethren, [as to] the glad tidings which were announced by me, that they are not according to man. 

12

 For neither did I receive them from man, neither was I taught [them], but by revelation of Jesus Christ. 

13

 For ye have heard [what was] my conversation formerly in Judaism, that I excessively persecuted the assembly of God, and ravaged it; 

14

 and advanced in Judaism beyond many [my] contemporaries in my nation, being exceedingly zealous of the doctrines of my fathers. 

15

 But when God, who set me apart [even] from my mother's womb, and called [me] by his grace, 

16

 was pleased to reveal his Son in me, that I may announce him as glad tidings among the nations, immediately I took not counsel with flesh and blood, 

17

 nor went I up to Jerusalem to those [who were] apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and again returned to Damascus. 

18

 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to make acquaintance with Peter, and I remained with him fifteen days; 

19

 but I saw none other of the apostles, but James the brother of the Lord. 

20

 Now what I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie. 

21

 Then I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. 

22

 But I was unknown personally to the assemblies of Judaea which [are] in Christ; 

23

 only they were hearing that he who persecuted us formerly now announces the glad tidings of the faith which formerly he ravaged: 

24

 and they glorified God in me.
