Galatians 1:6-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

II. Loyalty to the Gospel[a]

I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you[b] by [the] grace [of Christ] for a different gospel (not that there is another). But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach [to you] a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed![c] As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the one that you received, let that one be accursed!

Footnotes:

  1. 1:6–10 In place of the usual thanksgiving (see note on Rom 1:8), Paul, with little to be thankful for in the Galatian situation, expresses amazement at the way his converts are deserting the gospel of Christ for a perverted message. He reasserts the one gospel he has preached (Gal 1:7–9) and begins to defend himself (Gal 1:10).
  2. 1:6 The one who called you: God or Christ, though in actuality Paul was the divine instrument to call the Galatians.
  3. 1:8 Accursed: in Greek, anathema; cf. Rom 9:3; 1 Cor 12:3; 16:22.
