Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised
him from the dead;)
 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
 Who gave himself for our
sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called
you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble
you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any
other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
 As we said
before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received,
let him be accursed.
 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet
pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which
was preached of me is not after man.
 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by
the revelation of Jesus Christ.
 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion,
how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
 And profited in the Jews' religion
above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with
flesh and blood:
 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went
into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to
see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the
 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.
I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea
which were in Christ:
 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth
the faith which once he destroyed.
 And they glorified God in me.
 Then fourteen years after I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.
And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles,
but privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any means I should run, or had run, in vain.
But neither Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised:
 And that because
of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ
Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an
hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
 But of these who seemed to be somewhat,
(whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man's person:) for they who seemed
to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me:
 But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel
of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
(For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in
me toward the Gentiles:)
 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived
the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we
should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision.
 Only they would that we should remember
the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.
 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood
him to the face, because he was to be blamed.
 For before that certain came from James, he did
eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which
were of the circumcision.
 And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas
also was carried away with their dissimulation.
 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according
to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner
of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,
 Knowing that a man is not justified by the
works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might
be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no
flesh be justified.
 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners,
