1 Paul the apostle, not of men, nor by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, that raised him from death,
2 and all the brethren that be with me, to the churches of Galatia,
3 grace to you and peace of God the Father, and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
4 that gave himself for our sins, to deliver us from the present wicked world, by the will of God and our Father,
5 to whom is honour and glory into worlds of worlds. Amen.
6 I wonder, that so soon ye be thus moved from him that called you into the grace of Christ, into another evangel [or another gospel];
7 which is not another, but that there be some that trouble you, and will mis-turn the evangel of Christ.
8 But though we, or an angel of heaven, preached to you, besides that that we have preached to you, be he accursed.
9 As I have said before, and now again I say, if any man preach to you besides that that ye have received, be he accursed [or cursed be he].
10 For now whether counsel I men, or God? or whether I seek to please men? If I pleased yet men, I were not Christ’s servant.
11 For, brethren, I make known to you the evangel [or the gospel], that was preached of me, for it is not by man;
12 nor I took it of man, nor learned, but by [the] revelation of Jesus Christ.
13 For ye have heard my conver-sation sometime in the Jewry, that I pursued surpassingly, [or over-manner, or over-measure], the church of God, and fought against it.
14 And I profited in the Jewry above many of mine even-elders in my kindred, and was more abundantly a follower [or a lover] of my fathers’ traditions.
15 But when it pleased him, that parted me from my mother’s womb, and called by his grace,
16 to show his Son in me, that I should preach him among the heathen, anon I drew me not to flesh and blood;
17 nor I came to Jerusalem to the apostles, that were before me, but I went into Arabia, and again I turned again into Damascus.
18 And since three years after I came to Jerusalem [or Afterward after three years I came to Jerusalem], to see Peter, and I dwelled with him fifteen days;
19 but I saw none other of the apostles, but James, our Lord’s brother.
20 And these things which I write to you, lo! before God I lie not.
21 Afterward I came into the coasts of Syria and Cilicia.
22 But I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea, that were in Christ;
23 and they had only an hearing, that he that pursued us sometime, preacheth now the faith, against which he fought sometime;
24 and in me they glorified God.
