Revised Geneva Translation
1 Paul, an Apostle (neither of men, nor by man; but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, Who has raised Him from the dead),
2 And all the brothers who are with me, to the Churches of Galatia:
3 Grace be with you, and peace, from God the Father; and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
4 Who gave Himself for our sins; that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God, even our Father,
5 To Whom be glory, forever and ever, Amen.
6 I marvel that you are so soon lured away to another Gospel; from Him who had called you in the grace of Christ,
7 Which is not another Gospel. Yet, there are some who are agitating you, and intend to pervert the Gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we, or an angel from Heaven, preach to you any other gospel than that which we have preached, let him be accursed.
9 As we have said before, so say I now again: If anyone preaches to you any other gospel than that which you have received, let him be accursed.
10 For as of now, do I preach man’s doctrine, or God’s? Or, do I go about to please men? For if I were still pleasing men, I would not be the servant of Christ.
11 Now let it be known, brothers, that the Gospel which was preached by me, is not according to man.
12 Neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
13 For you have heard of my former way of life in the Jewish religion; how I persecuted the Church of God extremely, and destroyed it,
14 And advanced in the Jewish religion above many of my countrymen and was much more devoted to the traditions of my fathers.
15 But when it pleased God (who had set me apart from my mother’s womb, and called me by His grace)
16 To reveal his Son in me; that I should preach Him among the Gentiles immediately. I did not communicate with flesh and blood.
17 Nor did I return to Jerusalem, to those who were Apostles before me. But I went into Arabia and returned again to Damascus.
18 Then, after three years, I came again to Jerusalem, to visit Peter; and stayed with him fifteen days.
19 And I saw no other Apostle except James, the Lord’s brother.
20 Now the things which I write to you, behold, I testify before God, that I do not lie.
21 After that, I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. For I was unknown by face to the Churches of Judea which are in Christ,
22 Who had only heard some say, “He who formerly persecuted us, now preaches the faith which before he destroyed.”
23 And they glorified God in me.
