Greeting

1 Paul, an 1apostle--2not from men nor through man, but 3through Jesus Christ and God the Father, 4who raised him from the dead--
2 and all 5the brothersa who are with me, To 6the churches of Galatia:
3 7Grace to you and peace 8from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
4 9who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present 10evil age, according to the will of 11our God and Father,
5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

No Other Gospel

6 I am astonished that you are 12so quickly deserting 13him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to 14a different gospel--
7 15not that there is another one, but 16there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we or 17an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, 18let him be accursed.
9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, 19let him be accursed.
10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying 20to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a 21servantb of Christ.
