Paul, an apostle not from men nor by men but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised him from the dead,
and all the brothers with me, to the churches of Galatia.
Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,a4
who gave himself for our sins in order to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,
to whom [be] the glory forever and ever. Amen.
I am astonished that you are turning away so quickly from the one who called you by the grace of Christ to a different gospel,
not that [there] is a different [gospel], except there are some who are disturbing you and wanting to distort the gospel of Christ.
But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim a gospel to you contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let him be accursed!
As we said before, and now I say again, if anyone is proclaiming a gospel [to] you contrary to what you have received, let him be accursed!
For am I now making an appeal to people or [to] God? Or am I seeking to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a slave of Christ.
