Introduction1 Paul a an apostle ( b not sent from men nor through the agency of man, but c through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who d raised Him from the dead), 2 and all e the brethren who are with me, To f the churches of Galatia: 3 g Grace to you and peace from ▼
▼ Two early mss read God the Father, and our Lord Jesus ChristGod our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who i gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from j this present evil ▼
▼ Or worldage, according to the will of l our God and Father, 5 m to whom be the glory forevermore. Amen.
Perversion of the Gospel6 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting n Him who called you ▼
▼ Lit inby the grace of Christ, for a p different gospel; 7 which is really not another; only there are some who are q disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or r an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel ▼
▼ Or other than, more thancontrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be ▼
▼ Gr anathema, u accursed! 9 As we v have said before, so I say again now, w if any man is preaching to you a gospel ▼
▼ Or other than, more thancontrary to what you received, he is to be ▼
▼ Gr anathema, z accursed! 10 For am I now aa seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a ab bond-servant of Christ.
Paul Defends His Ministry11 For ac I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is ad not according to man. 12 For ae I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a af revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For you have heard of ag my former manner of life in Judaism, how I ah used to persecute ai the church of God beyond measure and aj tried to destroy it; 14 and I ak was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my ▼
▼ Lit racecountrymen, being more extremely zealous for my am ancestral traditions. 15 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and an called me through His grace, was pleased 16 to reveal His Son in me so that I might ao preach Him among the Gentiles ap I did not immediately consult with ▼
▼ I.e. human beings, ar flesh and blood, 17 as nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to at Damascus. 18 Then au three years later I went up av to Jerusalem to ▼
▼ Or visit Cephasbecome acquainted with ax Cephas, and stayed with him fifteen days. 19 But I did not see any other of the apostles except ▼
▼ Or Jacob, az James, the Lord’s brother. 20 (Now in what I am writing to you, ▼
▼ Lit behold before GodI assure you bb before God that I am not lying.) 21 Then bc I went into the regions of bd Syria and be Cilicia. 22 I was still unknown by ▼
▼ Lit facesight to bg the churches of Judea which were bh in Christ; 23 but only, they kept hearing, “He who once persecuted us is now preaching bi the faith which he once bj tried to destroy.” 24 And they bk were glorifying God ▼
▼ Lit in mebecause of me.
