I marvelthat ye aresosoonremovedfrom him that calledyouinto the grace of Christuntoanothergospel:7Whichisnotanother; but there besomethattroubleyou,andwouldpervert the gospel of Christ.8Butthoughwe,or an angelfromheaven, preach any other gospel unto youthan that which we have preached unto you, let him beaccursed.9As we said before , so say Inowagain, If any man preach any othergospel unto youthanthat ye have received , let him beaccursed.10For do Inowpersuademen,orGod?or do I seek to pleasemen?forifIyetpleasedmen, I shouldnotbe the servant of Christ.11But I certifyyou,brethren,that the gospelwhich was preachedofmeisnotafterman.12ForIneitherreceiveditofman,neither was I taught it, butby the revelation of JesusChrist.13For ye have heard of myconversation in time pastin the Jews' religion, how thatbeyondmeasure I persecuted the church of God,andwastedit:14Andprofitedin the Jews' religionabovemany my equalsain mine ownnation,being more exceedinglyzealous of the traditions of myfathers.15Butwhen it pleasedGod,whoseparatedmefrommymother'swomb,andcalled me byhisgrace,16
To revealhisSoninme,that I might preachhimamong the heathen;immediately I conferrednot with fleshandblood:17Neither went I uptoJerusalemto them which were apostlesbeforeme;but I went intoArabia,andreturnedagain untoDamascus.18Thenafterthreeyears I went upbtoJerusalem to seePeter,andabodewithhimfifteendays.19Butother of the apostles saw Inone,saveJames the Lord'sbrother.20Now the things which I write unto you,behold , beforeGod , I lienot.21Afterwards I cameinto the regions of SyriaandCilicia;22Andwasunknown by face unto the churches of Judaeawhich were inChrist:23But they hadheardonly,That he which persecutedus in times pastnowpreacheth the faithwhichonce he destroyed .
24And they glorifiedGodinme.
