1 Paul, an apostle not from human beings nor through a human being but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised him from the dead,
2 and all the brothers who are with me, to the churches of Galatia:
3 grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
4 who gave himself for our sins that he might rescue us from the present evil age in accord with the will of our God and Father,
5 to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
6 I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you by (the) grace (of Christ) for a different gospel
7 (not that there is another). But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ.
9 As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the one that you received, let that one be accursed!
11 Now I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel preached by me is not of human origin.
13 For you heard of my former way of life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it,
14 and progressed in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my race, since I was even more a zealot for my ancestral traditions.
15 But when (God), who from my mother's womb had set me apart and called me through his grace, was pleased
18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to confer with Kephas and remained with him for fifteen days.
20 (As to what I am writing to you, behold, before God, I am not lying.)
21 Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
22 And I was unknown personally to the churches of Judea that are in Christ;
23 they only kept hearing that "the one who once was persecuting us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy."
24 So they glorified God because of me.
