Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:10 - For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant[fn] of Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:15 - But when he who had set me apart before I was born,[fn] and who called me by his grace,

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:16 - was pleased to reveal his Son to[fn] me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone;[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:17 - nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:19 - But I saw none of the other apostles except James the Lord’s brother.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:20 - (In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!)

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:21 - Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:22 - And I was still unknown in person to the churches of Judea that are in Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:23 - They only were hearing it said, “He who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:24 - And they glorified God because of me.
