Galatians 1Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
1 Paul[a]— an apostle not from humans nor through a human, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, the One having raised Him from the dead— 2 and all the brothers with me, to the churches of Galatia: 3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4 the One having given Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us out of the present evil age in accordance with the will of our God and Father, 5 to Whom be the glory forever and ever, amen.
Are You Turning Away From The Gospel I Received Through a Revelation From Christ?
6 I am marveling that you are so quickly[b] turning-away from the One having called you by the grace of Christ to a different good-news— 7 which is not another[c] [good news]— except there are some disturbing you and intending[d] to change[e] the good-news of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should[f] announce-a-good-news to you other-than[g] what we announced-as-good-news to you, let him be accursed[h]. 9 As we have said-before I am also now saying again— if anyone is[i] announcing-a-good-news-to you other-than what you received, let him be accursed. 10 For am I now trying to win-approval-of [j] humans or God? Or am I seeking to please humans? If I were still[k]seeking to please humans, I would not be a slave of Christ! 11 For I make-known to you, brothers, as to the good-news having been announced-as-good-news by me, that it is not according-to[l]a human[m]. 12 For I neither received it from a human, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of[n] Jesus Christ.
For When God Was Pleased To Reveal Himself To Me, I Conferred With No One
13 For you heard-of my former conduct in Judaism— that I was persecuting the church of God extremely, and destroying[o] it. 14 And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many contemporaries in my nation, being far more a zealot for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when God— the One having separated me from my mother’s womb[p] and having called me through His grace— was well-pleased 16 to reveal His Son in me in order that I might be announcing Him as good news among the Gentiles, I did not immediately communicate[q]with flesh and blood, 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to the apostles before me, but I went away to Arabia and returned back to Damascus.
Three Years Later I Went To Jerusalem And Visited Peter And James
18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas, and stayed with him fifteen days. 19 But I did not see another of the apostles except[r] James, the brother of the Lord. 20 Now the things which I am writing to you, behold— I affirm in the sight of God that I am not lying. 21 Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. 22 And I was not-known by face to the churches of Judea in Christ, 23 but they were only hearing that “the one once persecuting us is now announcing-as-good-news the faith which he was once destroying”. 24 And they were glorifying God in[s] me.
