Paul an apostle--not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead--
and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:
Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,
who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father;
to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
