1 Paul, an apostle, (who was) not sent from men, neither (did I become an apostle) through (the will of) man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, (who has called me, revealing His Son in me and) who has raised Him from the dead;


2 And all the brethren (that fellowship in the truth revealed in Jesus Christ) which are here with me, (who can also bear witness) to all the churches of Galatia:


3 (His) grace and peace be with you from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,


4 Who gave Himself (the lamb) for the death in our flesh, so that He might (redeem us from the iniquity where we labored in vain through the strength contained in our flesh to preserve our own lives eternally and) deliver us from this present world that is filled with labors and hardships (totally free from any spot of death or corruption) according to the will of God and our Father (which He has revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord):


5 To whom (and from whom) is all the glory (for all the ages to come) forever and ever. Amen.


6 I am amazed that you are so quickly changing from (trusting in) Him who has called you by the grace (and strength) of Christ unto another gospel (through your own strength):

7 Which is not another (gospel), but there are some who have stirred up trouble with you who want to pervert the gospel of Christ (with the wisdom of men).


8 But even if we or an angel out of heaven should preach a gospel to you contrary to what we declared to you (publicly setting right before your eyes Christ crucified), (their words have already been judged and) remain to be cursed.


9 As we have said before, even now do I say I again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than the one you received (from us), (their words have already been judged and) remain to be (that which can only serve you with a) cursed (life).


10 For do (you think that) I am suddenly seeking to be persuaded by (the wisdom of) men, or God? or do you think I seek to (gain) the approval of men? Because if I were yet seeking to please men’s (flesh), I would not be the servant of (the life of) Christ (but the corruption of men).

11 But I certify to you brethren, that the gospel which was preached (to you) by me is not according to the (corruptible) wisdom of men (but from the incorruptible life revealed in 


12 Because I neither received (the gospel) from man, nor was I taught it (by any man), but through the revelation of Jesus Christ.


13 For you have heard about my way of life in times past in Judaism, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God and was (committed to) destroying it:


14 And I was advancing in Judaism beyond any of my equals in my own nation, seeing as I was more abundantly devoted to the traditions of my fathers (than any of them were).


15 But when it pleased God who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by His grace,


16 To reveal (the testimony of) His Son in me (appearing to me a man in the glory and immortality of God), so that I might declare Him among the Gentiles (that justification unto life is found in God and His strength alone and not the strength contained in the flesh); immediately I did not consult with flesh and blood (for approval):


17 Nor did I go up to Jerusalem to (visit with) those who were apostles before me: but I went to Arabia and returned again to Damascus (where I had first encountered the risen Christ).


18 Then it was not until three years later that I did go to Jerusalem to see Peter and I stayed with him for fifteen days.


19 But of the rest of the apostles I saw none of them except James the Lord’s brother.


20 The things which I write to you now, behold, (I certify) before God that I lie not.


21 Afterwards I came to the regions of Syria and Cilicia;


22 And my face was not known to the churches of Judea that were in Christ:


23 But they had only heard that the one which use to persecute us in the past was now preaching the faith (of Jesus Christ) which he once destroyed.


24 And they glorified God (for what He had done) in me.
