1:3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ,
1:4 who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father --
1:5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
1:6 I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different gospel;
1:8 But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any gospel other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed.
1:9 As we have said before, so I now say again: if any man preaches to you any gospel other than that which you received, let him be cursed.
1:11 But I make known to you, brothers, concerning the gospel which was preached by me, that it is not according to man.
1:12 For neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through revelation of Jesus Christ.
1:14 I advanced in the Jews` religion beyond many of my own age among my countrymen, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.
1:15 But when it was the good pleasure of God, who separated me from my mother`s womb, and called me through his grace,
1:16 to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I didn`t immediately confer with flesh and blood,
1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Peter, and stayed with him fifteen days.
1:19 But of the other apostles I saw no one, except James, the Lord`s brother.
1:20 Now about the things which I write to you, behold, before God, I`m not lying.
1:21 Then I came to the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
1:22 I was still unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea which were in Christ,
1:23 but they only heard: "He who once persecuted us now preaches the faith that he once tried to destroy."
1:24 They glorified God in me.
