Galatians 1:6-24

Perversion of the Gospel

6 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting * 1Him who called you aby the grace of Christ, for a 2different gospel;
7 which is really not another; only * there are some who are 3disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we, or 4an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel bcontrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be c5accursed!
9 As we 6have said before, so I say again now, 7if any man is preaching to you a gospel dcontrary to what you received, he is to be e8accursed!
10 For am I now 9seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a 10bond-servant of Christ.

Paul Defends His Ministry

11 For 11I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is 12not according to man.
12 For 13I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a 14revelation of Jesus Christ.
13 For you have heard of 15my former manner of life in Judaism, how I 16used to persecute 17the church of God beyond * measure and 18tried to destroy it;
15 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother's womb and 21called me through His grace, was pleased
16 to reveal His Son in me so that I might 22preach Him among the Gentiles, 23I did not immediately consult with g24flesh and blood,
17 25nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to 26Damascus.
19 But I did not see any other of the apostles except i30James, the Lord's brother.
20 (Now in what I am writing to you, jI assure you 31before God that I am not lying.)
21 Then 32I went into the regions of 33Syria and 34Cilicia.
22 I was still unknown by ksight to 35the churches of Judea which were 36in Christ;
23 but only, they kept hearing, "He who once persecuted us is now preaching 37the faith which he once 38tried to destroy."
24 And they 39were glorifying God lbecause of me.
