Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:1 - Paul, apostle, not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father who raised him from among the dead,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:2 - and all the brethren with me, to the assemblies of Galatia.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:3 - Grace to you, and peace, from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:4 - who gave himself for our sins, so that he should deliver us out of the present evil world, according to the will of our God and Father;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:5 - to whom be glory to the ages of ages. Amen.

Perversion of the Gospel

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:6 - I wonder that ye thus quickly change, from him that called you in Christ's grace, to a different gospel,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:7 - which is not another one; but there are some that trouble you, and desire to pervert the glad tidings of the Christ.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:8 - But if even *we* or an angel out of heaven announce as glad tidings to you anything besides what we have announced as glad tidings to you, let him be accursed.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:9 - As we have said before, now also again I say, If any one announce to you as glad tidings anything besides what ye have received, let him be accursed.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:10 - For do I now seek to satisfy men or God? or do I seek to please men? If I were yet pleasing men, I were not Christ's bondman.

Paul Defends His Ministry

(cf. Act 9:1–25 )
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:11 - But I let you know, brethren, as to the glad tidings which were announced by me, that they are not according to man.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:12 - For neither did I receive them from man, neither was I taught them, but by revelation of Jesus Christ.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:13 - For ye have heard what was my conversation formerly in Judaism, that I excessively persecuted the assembly of God, and ravaged it;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:14 - and advanced in Judaism beyond many my contemporaries in my nation, being exceedingly zealous of the doctrines of my fathers.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:15 - But when God, who set me apart even from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:16 - was pleased to reveal his Son in me, that I may announce him as glad tidings among the nations, immediately I took not counsel with flesh and blood,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:17 - nor went I up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and again returned to Damascus.
(cf. Act 9:26–31 )
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:18 - Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to make acquaintance with Peter, and I remained with him fifteen days;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:19 - but I saw none other of the apostles, but James the brother of the Lord.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:20 - Now what I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:21 - Then I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:22 - But I was unknown personally to the assemblies of Judaea which are in Christ;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:23 - only they were hearing that he who persecuted us formerly now announces the glad tidings of the faith which formerly he ravaged:
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:24 - and they glorified God in me.

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
