Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:4 - who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:5 - to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:6 - I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel--

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:10 - Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:14 - and I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:15 - But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and had called me through his grace,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:16 - was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not confer with flesh and blood,
