Galatians 1:1 Paul, an apostle,not from men, nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father who raised him from among the dead, Galatians 1:2 And all the brethren with me;unto the assemblies of Galatia: Galatians 1:3 Favour unto you and peace, from God our Father, and Lord Jesus Christ, Galatians 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, Galatians 1:5 Unto whom be the glory unto the ages of ages: Amen!
He wondereth that they have so soon left him and the Gospel,
Galatians 1:6 I marvel that, thus quickly, ye are moving away from him that called you in the favour of Christ, unto a different glad-message, Galatians 1:7 Which is not, another, only there are, some, that are troubling you, and wishing to change the glad-message of the Christ.
and accurseth those that preach any other gospel than he did.
Galatians 1:8 But, even if, we, or, a messenger out of heaven, announce a glad-message [unto you] aside from that which we announced unto you, accursed, let him be! Galatians 1:9 As we have said before, even now, again, I say: If anyone is announcing unto you a glad-message aside from that which ye accepted, accursed, let him be! Galatians 1:10 For am I, even now, persuading, men, or God? Or am I seeking to please, men? If I had been still pleasing, men, Christ's servant, had I not been!
He learned the Gospel not of men, but of God:
Galatians 1:11 For I make known unto you, brethren, as to the glad-message which was announced by me, that it is not after man; Galatians 1:12 For neither, from man, did I accept it, nor was taught [it],but through a revealing of Jesus Christ.
and sheweth what he was before his calling,
Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard, as to my own manner of life, at one time, in Judaism, how that, exceedingly, was I persecuting the assembly of God, and laying it waste, Galatians 1:14 And was making advancement, in Judaism, above many contemporaries in my nation, being, surpassingly zealous, of my paternal instructions. Galatians 1:15 But, when God, who set me apart from my mother's womb and called me through his favour, was well-pleased Galatians 1:16 to reveal his Son in me, that I might announce the glad-message regarding him among the nations, straightway, I conferred not with flesh and blood,
and what he did presently after it.
Galatians 1:17 Neither went I up unto Jerusalem unto them who, before me, were apostles,but I went away into Arabia, and again returned unto Damascus. Galatians 1:18 Then, after three years, went I up unto Jerusalem, to become acquainted with Cephas, and tarried with him fifteen days; Galatians 1:19 But, other of the apostles, saw I none, save James the brother of the Lord: Galatians 1:20 Now, as touching the things which I am writing to you, lo! before God, I am not guilty of falsehood: Galatians 1:21 After that, I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia, Galatians 1:22 And was still unknown, by face, unto the assemblies of Judaea which were in Christ, Galatians 1:23 Only they were hearingHe that was persecuting us formerly, now, is announcing the glad-message of the faith which he formerly laid waste; Galatians 1:24 And they were glorifying, God, in me.
