Galatians 1:1 Paul an Apostle, not of men, neyther by man, but by Iesus christ and by God the father, which raysed hym from death: Galatians 1:2 and all the brethren whiche are with me. Vnto the congregacyons of Galacia. Galatians 1:3 Grace be with you and peace from God the father, and from our Lorde Iesus Christ, Galatians 1:4 whiche gaue hym selfe for oure synnes, to delyuer vs from thys present euyll worlde, thorow the wyll of God our 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 sone turned from hym that called you in the grace of Christ, vnto an other Gospell: Galatians 1:7 whiche is nothynge els, but that there be some which trouble you, and entende to peruert the Gospell of Christe.
and accurseth those that preach any other gospel than he did.
Galatians 1:8 Neuerthelesse thoughe we oure selues, or an Angell from heauen, preache any other Gospell vnto you then that whiche we haue preached vnto you, holde hym as accurssed. Galatians 1:9 As I haue sayed before, so saye I nowe agayne, yf anye man preache any other thynge vnto you, then that you haue receyued, holde hym accursed. Galatians 1:10 Preache I mans doctryne or Goddes? Eyther go I aboute to please men? Yf I studyed to please men, I were not the seruauat of Christe.
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 neyther receyued I it of man, neyther was I taughte it, but receyued it 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 paste, in the Iewes wayes, howe that beyonde measure I persecuted the congregacyon of God, & spoyled it, Galatians 1:14 and preuayled in the Iewes lawe, aboue many of my companyons, which were of myne own nacyon, & was a much more feruent mayntayner of the tradicions of þe elders. Galatians 1:15 But when it pleased God (whiche separated me from my mothers wombe, and called me by hys grace, Galatians 1:16 for to declare hys sonne by me) that I shoulde preache hym amonge the heathen immediatly I communed not of the matter with fleshe and bloude,
and what he did presently after it.
Galatians 1:17 neyther returned to Hierusalem to them whiche were Apostles before me, but went my wayes into Arabia, and came agayne to Damasco. Galatians 1:18 Then after .iij. yere I returned to Ierusalem to se Peter and abode with hym .xv. dayes, Galatians 1:19 no nother of the Apostles sawe I, saue Iames the Lordes brother. Galatians 1:20 The thynges which I wryte beholde God knoweth I lye not. Galatians 1:21 After that I went into the costes of Syria, and Cilicia, Galatians 1:22 and was knowen as touchynge my person vnto the congregacyons of Iewry, whiche were in Christe, Galatians 1:23 But they hearde onlye that he which persecuted vs in tyme past nowe preacheth the fayth which before he destroyed. Galatians 1:24 And they gloryfyed God on my be halfe.
