I amamazed that you are soquicklydeserting5Him who called you bby the grace of Christ, for a 6differentgospel;
7which is really not another; only there are some who are 7disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
But evenif we, or8an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospelccontrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be d9accursed!
As we 10have saidbefore, so I sayagainnow, 11ifanyman is preaching to you a gospelecontrary to what you received, he is to be f12accursed!
For am I now13seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to pleasemen? If I were still trying to pleasemen, I would not be a 14bond-servant of Christ.
For 15I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is 16not according to man.
For 17I neitherreceived it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a 18revelation of JesusChrist.
For you have heard of 19my formermanner of life in Judaism, how I 20used to persecute21the church of Godbeyondmeasure and 22tried to destroy it;
and I 23was advancing in Judaismbeyondmany of my contemporariesamong my gcountrymen, beingmoreextremelyzealous for my 24ancestraltraditions.
