No Other Gospel

I am astonished that you are (A)so quickly deserting (B)him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to (C)a different gospel— (D)not that there is another one, but (E)there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or (F)an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, (G)let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, (H)let him be accursed.

10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying (I)to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a (J)servant[a] of Christ.

Paul Called by God

11 For (K)I would have you know, brothers, that (L)the gospel that was preached by me is not man's gospel.[b] 12 (M)For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it (N)through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

Only One Gospel

I marvel that you are turning away so soon (A)from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, (B)which is not another; but there are some (C)who trouble you and want to (D)pervert[a] the gospel of Christ. But even if (E)we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be [b]accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you (F)than what you have received, let him be accursed.

10 For (G)do I now (H)persuade men, or God? Or (I)do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

Call to Apostleship(J)

11 (K)But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12 For (L)I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came (M)through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
