Galatians 1

ASV 1 Paul, an apostle (not from men, neither through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead), 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— ASV 2 and all the brethren that are with me, unto the churches of Galatia: NIV 2 and all the brothers and sisters with me, To the churches in Galatia: ASV 3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, NIV 3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, ASV 4 who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of this present evil world, according 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, ASV 5 to whom [be] the glory for ever and ever. Amen. NIV 5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. ASV 6 I marvel that ye are so quickly removing from him that called you in the grace of Christ unto a different 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— ASV 7 which is not another [gospel] only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert 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. ASV 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach unto you any gospel other than that which we preached unto you, let him be anathema. 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! ASV 9 As we have said before, so say I now again, if any man preacheth unto you any gospel other than that which ye received, let him be anathema. 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! ASV 10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? or am I striving to please men? if I were still pleasing men, I should 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. ASV 11 For I make known to you, brethren, as touching the gospel which was preached by me, that it is not after man. NIV 11 I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. ASV 12 For neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but [it came to me] through revelation of Jesus Christ. NIV 12 I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ. ASV 13 For ye have heard of my manner of life in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and made havoc of 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. ASV 14 and I advanced in the Jews' religion beyond many of mine own age among my countrymen, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers. 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. ASV 15 But when it was the good pleasure of God, who separated me, [even] from my mother's womb, and called me through his grace, NIV 15 But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased ASV 16 to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles; straightway I conferred not with flesh and blood: 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. ASV 17 neither went I up to Jerusalem to them that were apostles before me: but I went away into Arabia; and again I returned unto 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. ASV 18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas, and tarried with him fifteen days. NIV 18 Then after three years, I went up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Cephas and stayed with him fifteen days. ASV 19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother. NIV 19 I saw none of the other apostles—only James, the Lord’s brother. ASV 20 Now touching the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not. NIV 20 I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie. ASV 21 Then I came unto the regions of Syria and Cilicia. NIV 21 Then I went to Syria and Cilicia. ASV 22 And I was still unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ: NIV 22 I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. ASV 23 but they only heard say, He that once persecuted us now preacheth the faith of which he once made havoc; NIV 23 They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” ASV 24 and they glorified God in me. NIV 24 And they praised God because of me.
