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 --

1:2 and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:

1:3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,

1:4 who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father;

1:5 to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

1:6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel --

1:7 not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.

1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed.

1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed.

1:10 Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.

1:11 For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not man's gospel.

1:12 For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

1:13 For you have heard of my former life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it;

1:14 and I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers.

1:15 But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and had called me through his grace,

1:16 was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not confer with flesh and blood,

1:17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia; and again I returned to Damascus.

1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas, and remained with him fifteen days.

1:19 But I saw none of the other apostles except James the Lord's brother.

1:20 (In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!)

1:21 Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cili'cia.

1:22 And I was still not known by sight to the churches of Christ in Judea;

1:23 they only heard it said, "He who once persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy."

1:24 And they glorified God because of me.
