THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE
Preachers of false gospels are accursed—Paul received the gospel by revelation—He believes, is taught, and preaches to the Gentiles.
, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
himself for our sins, that he might bdeliver
us from this present evil world, according to the cwill
of God and our Father:
To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I marvel that ye are so soon aremoved
from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another bgospel
Which is not another; but there be some that atrouble
you, and would bpervert
But though we, or an aangel
from heaven, preach any bother cgospel
unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be daccursed
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man
preach any other agospel
unto you than that ye have received, let him be baccursed
For do I now apersuade
men, or God? or do I seek to bplease
men? for if I yet cpleased
men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
But I acertify
you, brethren, that the gospel which was bpreached
of me is not after man.
For I neither received it aof
man, neither was I taught it,
of Jesus Christ.
For ye have heard of my aconversation
in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I bpersecuted
the church of God, and cwasted
in the Jews’ religion above many bmy
equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly czealous
of the dtraditions
of my fathers.
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me
by his agrace
To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the aheathen
; immediately I conferred not with bflesh
Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
Then after three years I went up to aJerusalem
to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
Now the things which I awrite
unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.
Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:
But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
And they glorified God in me.
