Galatians 1

GNTA 1 From Paul, whose call to be an apostle did not come from human beings or by human means, but from Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from death. NIV 1 Paul, an apostle—sent not from men nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— GNTA 2 All the believers who are here join me in sending greetings to the churches of Galatia: NIV 2 and all the brothers and sisters with me, To the churches in Galatia: GNTA 3 May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. NIV 3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, GNTA 4 In order to set us free from this present evil age, Christ gave himself for our sins, in obedience to the will of our God and Father. NIV 4 who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, GNTA 5 To God be the glory forever and ever! Amen. NIV 5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. GNTA 6 I am surprised at you! In no time at all you are deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ, and are accepting another gospel. NIV 6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— GNTA 7 Actually, there is no "other gospel," but I say this because there are some people who are upsetting you and trying to change the gospel of Christ. NIV 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. GNTA 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel that is different from the one we preached to you, may he be condemned to hell! NIV 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! GNTA 9 We have said it before, and now I say it again: if anyone preaches to you a gospel that is different from the one you accepted, may he be condemned to hell! NIV 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse! GNTA 10 Does this sound as if I am trying to win human approval? No indeed! What I want is God's approval! Am I trying to be popular with people? If I were still trying to do so, I would not be a servant of Christ. NIV 10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. GNTA 11 Let me tell you, my friends, that the gospel I preach is not of human origin. NIV 11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. GNTA 12 I did not receive it from any human being, nor did anyone teach it to me. It was Jesus Christ himself who revealed it to me. NIV 12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ. GNTA 13 You have been told how I used to live when I was devoted to the Jewish religion, how I persecuted without mercy the church of God and did my best to destroy it. NIV 13 For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it. GNTA 14 I was ahead of most other Jews of my age in my practice of the Jewish religion, and was much more devoted to the traditions of our ancestors. NIV 14 I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers. GNTA 15 But God in his grace chose me even before I was born, and called me to serve him. And when he decided NIV 15 But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased GNTA 16 to reveal his Son to me, so that I might preach the Good News about him to the Gentiles, I did not go to anyone for advice, NIV 16 to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being. GNTA 17 nor did I go to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before me. Instead, I went at once to Arabia, and then I returned to Damascus. NIV 17 I did not go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went into Arabia. Later I returned to Damascus. GNTA 18 It was three years later that I went to Jerusalem to obtain information from Peter, and I stayed with him for two weeks. NIV 18 Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Cephas and stayed with him fifteen days. GNTA 19 I did not see any other apostle except James, the Lord's brother. NIV 19 I saw none of the other apostles—only James, the Lord’s brother. GNTA 20 What I write is true. God knows that I am not lying! NIV 20 I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie. GNTA 21 Afterward I went to places in Syria and Cilicia. NIV 21 Then I went to Syria and Cilicia. GNTA 22 At that time the members of the churches in Judea did not know me personally. NIV 22 I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. GNTA 23 They knew only what others were saying: "The man who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith that he once tried to destroy!" NIV 23 They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” GNTA 24 And so they praised God because of me. NIV 24 And they praised God because of me.
