Galatians 1:1 Paul an apostle, not of men, nether by man: but by Iesus Christ, and by God the father, which raysed him vp from deeth: Galatians 1:2 and all the brethren which are with me. Unto the congregacions of Galacia. Galatians 1:3 Grace be with you, and peace from God the father, & from oure Lorde Iesus Christ, Galatians 1:4 which gaue hym selfe for our synnes to delyuer vs from thys present euyll worlde, accordynge to the wyll of God oure father, Galatians 1:5 to whom be prayse for euer and euer. Amen.
He wondereth that they have so soon left him and the Gospel,
Galatians 1:6 I maruayle, that ye are so soone turned (from Christ which called you by grace) vnto another Gospell Galatians 1:7 which is nothinge elles, but that there be some which trouble you, & intende to peruerte the Gospell of Christ.
and accurseth those that preach any other gospel than he did.
Galatians 1:8 Neuerthelesse, though we oure selues, or an angell from heauen, preache any other Gospell vnto you, then þt which we haue preached vnto you, let him be acursed. Galatians 1:9 As we said before, so saye I nowe agayne, yf eny man preache eny other Gospell vnto you, then þt ye haue receaued, lett hym be acursed. Galatians 1:10 Do I now perswade men, or God? Other do I seke to please men? For yf I had hythereto studyed to please men, I were not the seruaunt of Christ.
He learned the Gospel not of men, but of God:
Galatians 1:11 I certifye you brethren, that the Gospell which was preached of me, was not after the maner of men. Galatians 1:12 For I nether receaued it, ner learned it of man, but by the reuelacyon of Iesus Christ.
and sheweth what he was before his calling,
Galatians 1:13 For ye haue hearde of my conuersacyon in tyme past, in the Iewes waye, howe that beyonde measure, I persecuted the congregacyon of God, and spoyled it, Galatians 1:14 and preuayled in the Iewes waye aboue many of my companions in myne awne nacyon beynge a very feruent mayntener of the tradicyons of the elders. Galatians 1:15 But when it pleased God, which seperated me from my mothers wombe, and called me here unto by hys grace, Galatians 1:16 for to declare hys sonne by me, that I shulde preache hym amonge the Heathen: immediatly I commened not of the matter with flessh & bloude,
and what he did presently after it.
Galatians 1:17 nether returned to Ierusalem, to them which were apostles before me: but went my wayes into Arabia, and came agayne vnto Damasco. Galatians 1:18 Then after thre yeare, I returned to Ierusalem to se Peter, and abode with hym fyftene dayes. Galatians 1:19 Other of the apostles sawe I none, saue Iames the Lordes brother. Galatians 1:20 The thinges therfore which I wryte vnto you: beholde, before God I lye not. Galatians 1:21 After that I came into þe coastes of Siria and Cilicia, Galatians 1:22 and was vnknowen as touchinge my person vnto the congregacions of Iewry, which were in Christ. Galatians 1:23 But thys they hearde onely, that he which persecuted vs in tyme past, nowe preacheth the fayth, which before he destroyed. Galatians 1:24 And they glorified God in me.
