Galatians Chapter 1 Young's Literal Translation

Galatians 1:1

Paul, an apostle -- not from men, nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who did raise him out of 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 did give himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of the present evil age, according to the will of God even our Father,

Galatians 1:5

to whom `is' the glory to the ages of the ages. Amen.

Galatians 1:6

I wonder that ye are so quickly removed from Him who did call you in the grace of Christ to another good news;

Galatians 1:7

that is not another, except there be certain who are troubling you, and wishing to pervert the good news of the Christ;

Galatians 1:8

but even if we or a messenger out of heaven may proclaim good news to you different from what we did proclaim to you -- anathema let him be!

Galatians 1:9

as we have said before, and now say again, If any one to you may proclaim good news different from what ye did receive -- anathema let him be!

Galatians 1:10

for now men do I persuade, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if yet men I did please -- Christ's servant I should not be.

Galatians 1:11

And I make known to you, brethren, the good news that were proclaimed by me, that it is not according to man,

Galatians 1:12

for neither did I from man receive it, nor was I taught `it', but through a revelation of Jesus Christ,

Galatians 1:13

for ye did hear of my behaviour once in Judaism, that exceedingly I was persecuting the assembly of God, and wasting it,

Galatians 1:14

and I was advancing in Judaism above many equals in age in mine own race, being more abundantly zealous of my fathers' deliverances,

Galatians 1:15

and when God was well pleased -- having separated me from the womb of my mother, and having called `me' through His grace --

Galatians 1:16

to reveal His Son in me, that I might proclaim him good news among the nations, immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood,

Galatians 1:17

nor did I go up to Jerusalem unto those who were apostles before me, but I went away to Arabia, and again returned to Damascus,

Galatians 1:18

then, after three years I went up to Jerusalem to enquire about Peter, and remained with him fifteen days,

Galatians 1:19

and other of the apostles I did not see, except James, the brother of the Lord.

Galatians 1:20

And the things that I write to you, lo, before God -- I lie not;

Galatians 1:21

then I came to the regions of Syria and of Cilicia,

Galatians 1:22

and was unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea, that `are' in Christ,

Galatians 1:23

and only they were hearing, that `he who is persecuting us then, doth now proclaim good news -- the faith that then he was wasting;'

Galatians 1:24

and they were glorifying God in me.
