Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:1 - Paul, an apostle -- not from men, nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who did raise him out of 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 did give himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of the present evil age, according to the will of God even our Father,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:5 - to whom is the glory to the ages of the ages. Amen.

Perversion of the Gospel

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:6 - I wonder that ye are so quickly removed from Him who did call you in the grace of Christ to another good news;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:7 - that is not another, except there be certain who are troubling you, and wishing to pervert the good news of the Christ;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:8 - but even if we or a messenger out of heaven may proclaim good news to you different from what we did proclaim to you -- anathema let him be!
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:9 - as we have said before, and now say again, If any one to you may proclaim good news different from what ye did receive -- anathema let him be!
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:10 - for now men do I persuade, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if yet men I did please -- Christ's servant I should not be.

Paul Defends His Ministry

(cf. Act 9:1–25 )
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:11 - And I make known to you, brethren, the good news that were proclaimed by me, that it is not according to man,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:12 - for neither did I from man receive it, nor was I taught it, but through a revelation of Jesus Christ,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:13 - for ye did hear of my behaviour once in Judaism, that exceedingly I was persecuting the assembly of God, and wasting it,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:14 - and I was advancing in Judaism above many equals in age in mine own race, being more abundantly zealous of my fathers' deliverances,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:15 - and when God was well pleased -- having separated me from the womb of my mother, and having called me through His grace --
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:16 - to reveal His Son in me, that I might proclaim him good news among the nations, immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:17 - nor did I go up to Jerusalem unto those who were apostles before me, but I went away 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 enquire about Peter, and remained with him fifteen days,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:19 - and other of the apostles I did not see, except James, the brother of the Lord.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:20 - And the things that I write to you, lo, before God -- I lie not;
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:21 - then I came to the regions of Syria and of Cilicia,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:22 - and was unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea, that are in Christ,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:23 - and only they were hearing, that 'he who is persecuting us then, doth now proclaim good news -- the faith that then he was wasting;'
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 1:24 - and they were glorifying God in me.
