Galatians 1 ©
1 After saluting the churches of Galatia, 6 Paul testifieth his surprise that they should so soon have forsaken the truth of the gospel which he had taught them; 8 and pronounceth those accursed who preach any other gospel. 10 He sheweth that his doctrine was not devised to please men, but came to him by immediate revelation from God. 13 To confirm which he relateth his conversation before his calling, 15 and what steps he had taken immediately thereupon.
aPAUL, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but bby Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who craised him from the dead;)
Who ggave himself for our sins, that he might deliver usfrom this hpresent evil world, iaccording to the will of God and our Father:
But othough we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
For rdo 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.
For tI neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by uthe revelation of Jesus Christ.
xAnd profited in the Jews' religion above many my 1equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the ytraditions of my fathers.
bTo reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; cimmediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into dArabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
But they had heard only, nThat he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
