Galatians 1
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Paul, an apostle—not from men, nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised Him out of the dead— 2and all the brothers with me, to the assemblies of Galatia:

3Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us out of the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5to whom [is] the glory through the ages of the ages. Amen.

6I wonder that you are so quickly removed from Him who called you in the grace of Christ to another good news— 7not that there is another, except there are certain who are troubling you, and wishing to pervert the good news of the Christ; 8but even if we or a messenger out of Heaven may proclaim good news to you different from what we proclaimed to you—let him be accursed! 9As we have said before, and now say again: if anyone may proclaim to you good news different from what you received—let him be accursed!

10For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men—I should not be Christ’s servant.

11And I make known to you, brothers, the good news that was proclaimed by me, that it is not according to man, 12for neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught [it], but through a revelation of Jesus Christ,

13for you heard of my behavior once in Judaism, that I was exceedingly persecuting the Assembly of God, and destroying it, 14and I was advancing in Judaism above many equals in age in my own race, being more abundantly zealous of my fathers’ deliverances, 15and when God was well pleased—having separated me from the womb of my mother, and having called [me] through His grace— 16to reveal His Son in me, that I might proclaim Him as good news among the nations, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood, 17nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away to Arabia, and again returned to Damascus;

18then, after three years I went up to Jerusalem to inquire about Peter, and remained with him fifteen days, 19and I did not see [any] other of the apostles, except James, the brother of the LORD. 20And the things that I write to you, behold, before God—I do not lie; 21then I came into the regions of Syria and of Cilicia, 22and was unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea, that [are] in Christ, 23and they were only hearing that “he who is persecuting us then, now proclaims good news—the faith that he was then destroying”; 24and they were glorifying God in me.
