Galatians 11Paul, an apostle, (not from men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) 2And all the brethren who are with me, to the churches of Galatia: 3Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: 5To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 6I marvel that ye are so soon turning from him that called you into the grace of Christ to another gospel: 7Which is not another; but there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach any other gospel to you than that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9As we said before, so I say now again, If any man preacheth any other gospel to you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10For do I now seek the favour of men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. 11But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12For I neither received it from man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13For ye have heard of my former manner of life in time past in the Jews’ religion, that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: 14And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. ▼
▼equals: Gr. equals in years15But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, 16To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: 17Neither did I go to Jerusalem to them who were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. 18Then after three years I went to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days. ▼
▼went up: or, returned19But I saw no other of the apostles, except James the Lord’s brother. 20Now the things which I write to you, behold, before God, I lie not. 21Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia; 22And was unknown by face to the churches of Judaea which were in Christ: 23But they had heard only, That he who persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed. 24And they glorified God in me.
