Galatians Chapter 1 Darby English Bible

Galatians 1:1

Paul, apostle, not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God [the] Father who raised him from among [the] dead,

Galatians 1:2

and all the brethren with me, to the assemblies of Galatia.

Galatians 1:3

Grace to you, and peace, from God [the] Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ,

Galatians 1:4

who gave himself for our sins, so that he should deliver us out of the present evil world, according to the will of our God and Father;

Galatians 1:5

to whom [be] glory to the ages of ages. Amen.

Galatians 1:6

I wonder that ye thus quickly change, from him that called you in Christ's grace, to a different gospel,

Galatians 1:7

which is not another [one]; but there are some that trouble you, and desire to pervert the glad tidings of the Christ.

Galatians 1:8

But if even *we* or an angel out of heaven announce as glad tidings to you [anything] besides what we have announced as glad tidings to you, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:9

As we have said before, now also again I say, If any one announce to you as glad tidings [anything] besides what ye have received, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:10

For do I now seek to satisfy men or God? or do I seek to please men? If I were yet pleasing men, I were not Christ's bondman.

Galatians 1:11

But I let you know, brethren, [as to] the glad tidings which were announced by me, that they are not according to man.

Galatians 1:12

For neither did I receive them from man, neither was I taught [them], but by revelation of Jesus Christ.

Galatians 1:13

For ye have heard [what was] my conversation formerly in Judaism, that I excessively persecuted the assembly of God, and ravaged it;

Galatians 1:14

and advanced in Judaism beyond many [my] contemporaries in my nation, being exceedingly zealous of the doctrines of my fathers.

Galatians 1:15

But when God, who set me apart [even] from my mother's womb, and called [me] by his grace,

Galatians 1:16

was pleased to reveal his Son in me, that I may announce him as glad tidings among the nations, immediately I took not counsel with flesh and blood,

Galatians 1:17

nor went I up to Jerusalem to those [who were] apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and again returned to Damascus.

Galatians 1:18

Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to make acquaintance with Peter, and I remained with him fifteen days;

Galatians 1:19

but I saw none other of the apostles, but James the brother of the Lord.

Galatians 1:20

Now what I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie.

Galatians 1:21

Then I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.

Galatians 1:22

But I was unknown personally to the assemblies of Judaea which [are] in Christ;

Galatians 1:23

only they were hearing that he who persecuted us formerly now announces the glad tidings of the faith which formerly he ravaged:

Galatians 1:24

and they glorified God in me.
