PAUL THE APOSTLE
Galatians 1 ©
1 After the superscription of the epistle. 3 The usual salutation. 4 And a thanksgiving to God. 6 The apostle reproves the congregations of Galatia, that they were so soon turned away from the apostolic doctrine. 7 Whereas notwithstanding there can be no other doctrine for salvation. 8 Although an angel should preach the same. 10 And whereas he learned the doctrine which he preached unto them, not from men, but from the Lord Christ Himself. 13 Which he proves by his first state and zeal in Judaism. 15 And by his wonderful conversion and calling to the apostleship. 17 Withal because he, being called, conferred not with the other apostles concerning the doctrine, but immediately journeyed toward Arabia. 18 And after three years of his ministry, first saw Peter and James only. 21 That afterwards he traveled again into Syria and Cilicia, and that he was not known but by reports unto the congregations in Judæa.
PAUL, 1an apostle, (2not of men, neither by man, but bya Jesus Christ, and God the Father, 3who raised him from the dead;)
And 4all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of 5Galatia:
Gracebbe to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
Whoc6gave 7himself 8for our sins, that he might deliver usfrom this present evil 9world, 10according to the will of God and our Father:
To whom be glory for 11ever and ever. Amen.
12I marvel that ye are 13so 14soon 15removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ 16unto another gospel:
17Which is not another; 18but there be some thatd trouble you, and would 19pervert the gospel of Christ.
Bute though 20we, or 21an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you 22than that which we have preached unto you, let him be 23accursed.
As we said 24before, so say I now 25again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have 26received, let him be accursed.
For do I now 27persuadef men, 28or God? 29org do I seek to please men? for if I 30yet 31pleased 32men, I should not be the 33servant of Christ.
Buth I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me 34is not after man.
Fori I 35neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Forj ye have heard of my conversation in 36time past in the Jews' religion, how that 37beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and 38wasted it:
And profited in the Jews' religion above many 39my equals 40in mine own nation, being more 41exceedingly zealous of the 42traditions 43of my fathers.
Butk when it pleased God, who 44separated me 45from my mother's womb, and called me 46by his grace,
To reveal 47his Son 48in me, thatl I might preach him among the heathen; 49immediately I 50conferred not 51withm flesh and blood:
52Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles 53before me; but I went into 54Arabia, and returned again unto 55Damascus.
Then 56after three years I went up to Jerusalem 57to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
But other of the apostles saw I none, save 58James 59the Lord’s brother.
60Now the things which I write unto you, behold, 61beforen God, I lie not.
Afterwards I came into the regions of 62Syria and Cilicia;
And was unknown by face unto the churches 63of Judaea 64which were in Christ:
But they had heard only, That 65he which persecuted 66us in times past now preacheth 67the faith which once he 68destroyed.
And they glorified God 69in me.
