Galatians 1

1 Paul, an apostle, (not from men, neither through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him up from the dead), 2 and all the brethren who are together with me, to the congregations* of Galatia: 3 grace to you* and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave himself concerning our sins, *that he might liberate us out of the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father: 5 the glory is to him, forevermore. Amen. 6 I marvel that you* are so quickly transferring yourselves from the one who called you* by the favor of Christ to a different good-news; 7 which is not another good-news, except now there are some who are disturbing you* and wish to pervert the good-news of the Christ. 8 But even if we or a messenger from heaven, should proclaim to you* any good-news contrary to what we proclaimed to you*, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I am saying again, if anyone proclaims to you* any good-news contrary to what you* received, let him be accursed. 10 For* am I now persuading men or God? Or am I seeking to please men? For* if I was still pleasing men, I myself would not be a bondservant of Christ.
11 But I am making known to you*, brethren, the good-news which was proclaimed by me, that it is not according to man. 12 For* I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For* you* have heard previously of my conduct in Judaism, how that I was surpassingly persecuting the congregation* of believers of God and was making havoc of her; 14 and how I was progressing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own race, possessing even-more zealousness for the ancestral traditions. 15 But when God was delighted� he separated* me from my mother's womb, having called me through his grace, 16 to reveal his Son in me, in order that I may proclaim the good-news of him among the nations. Immediately, I did not consult with flesh and blood; 17 nor did I go up into Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia, and I returned again into Damascus. 18 Thereafter, after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to make the acquaintance of Peter and remained with him fifteen days. {Fall 39 AD.}
19 But I did not see any other of the apostles, except James the Lord's brother. 20 Now concerning the things which I write to you*, behold, in God's sight, I am not lying. 21 Thereafter I came to the districts of Syria and Cilicia. 22 But I was still unrecognized by face to the congregations* of Judea, which are in Christ; 23 but they were only hearing that, He who previously persecuted us is now proclaiming the good-news of the faith of which he was previously making havoc. 24 And they were glorifying God with* me.
