Galatians 1

1Pavl an Apostle (not of men, neither by man, but by Iesus Christ, and God the Father which hath raised him from the dead)

2And all the brethren which are with me, vnto the Churches of Galatia:

3Grace be with you, and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Iesus Christ,

4Which gaue himself for our sinnes, that he might deliuer vs from this present euill world according to the will of God euen our Father,

5To whom be glory for euer and euer, Amen.

6I marueile that ye are so soone remoued away vnto another Gospel, from him that had called you in the grace of Christ,

7Which is not another Gospel, saue that there be some which trouble you, and intend to peruert the Gospel of Christ.

8But though that we, or an Angel from heauen preach vnto you otherwise, then that which we haue preached vnto you, let him be accursed.

9As we sayd before, so say I now againe, If any man preach vnto you otherwise, then that ye haue receiued, let him be accursed.

10For nowe preach I mans doctrine, or Gods? or go I about to please men? for if I should yet please men, I were not the seruant of Christ.

11Now I certifie you, brethren, that ye Gospel which was preached of me, was not after man.

12For neither receiued I it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the reuelation of Iesus Christ.

13For ye haue heard of my conuersation in time past, in the Iewish religion, how that I persecuted the Church of God extremely, and wasted it,

14And profited in the Iewish religion aboue many of my companions of mine owne nation, and was much more zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

15But when it pleased God (which had separated me from my mothers wombe, and called me by his grace)

16To reueile his Sonne in me, that I should preach him among the Gentiles, immediatly I communicated not with flesh and blood:

17Neither came I againe to Hierusalem to them which were Apostles before me, but I went into Arabia, and turned againe vnto Damascus.

18Then after three yeeres I came againe to Hierusalem to visite Peter, and abode with him fifteene dayes.

19And none other of the Apostles sawe I, saue Iames the Lords brother.

20Nowe the things which I write vnto you, beholde, I witnes before God, that I lie not.

21After that, I went into the coastes of Syria and Cilicia: for I was vnknowen by face vnto the Churches of Iudea, which were in Christ.

22But they had heard onely some say, Hee which persecuted vs in time past, nowe preacheth the faith which before he destroyed.

23And they glorified God for me.
