Paul, an apostle-not from men or by man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead-
and all the brothers who are with me: To the churches of Galatia.a3
Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord b Jesus Christ,
who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,
to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
I am amazed that you are so quickly turning away from Him who called you by the grace of Christ, [and are turning] to a different gospel-
not that there is another [gospel], but there are some who are troubling you and want to change the gospel of Christ.
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel other than what we have preached to you, a curse be on him!c9
As we have said before, I now say again: if anyone preaches to you a gospel contrary to what you received, a curse be on him!d10
For am I now trying to win the favor of people, or God? Or am I striving to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a slave of Christ.
