Galatians 1:1-5 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Paul the apostle, not of men, nor by man [neither by man], but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, that raised him from death [that raised him from dead men],

and all the brethren that be with me, to the churches of Galatia,

grace to you and peace of God the Father, and of the Lord Jesus Christ [and of our Lord Jesus Christ],

that gave himself for our sins, to deliver us from the present wicked world, by the will of God and our Father, [the which gave himself for our sins, that he should deliver us from this present wayward world, after the will of God and our Father,]

to whom is honour and glory into worlds of worlds. Amen.

Galatians 1:1-5 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Paul rebukes them because they had fallen away from the gospel. He recounts his own life, emphasizes his office and apostleship, and declares himself to be equal with the high apostles.

Paul, an apostle not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and by God the Father who raised him from death, and all the brethren who are with me.

To the congregations of Galatia.

Grace be with you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from this present evil world according to the will of God our Father, to whom be praise for ever and ever. Amen.

Galatians 1:1-5 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

The Epistle of the Apostle Paul to the Galatians

1 Straight after the salutation, 6 He reprehendeth the Galatians for revolting, 9 from his Gospel, 15 which he received from God, 17 before he had communicated with any of the Apostles.

Paul [a]an Apostle (not [b]of men, neither by [c]man, but by [d]Jesus Christ, and God the Father which hath raised him from the dead.)

And all the brethren which are with me unto the Churches of Galatia:

Grace be with you, and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

[e]Which gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil [f]world according to the will of God even our Father,

To whom be glory forever and ever, Amen.

Footnotes:

  1. Galatians 1:1 A salutation comprehending in few words, the sum of the Apostle’s doctrine, and also besides straightway from the beginning, showing the gravity meet for the authority of an Apostle, which he had to maintain against the false apostles.
  2. Galatians 1:1 He showeth who is the author of the minister generally: for herein the whole ministry agreeth, that whether they be Apostles, or Shepherds, or Doctors, they are appointed of God.
  3. Galatians 1:1 He toucheth the instrumental cause: for this is a peculiar prerogative to the Apostles, to be called immediately from Christ.
  4. Galatians 1:1 Christ no doubt is man, but he is God also, and head of the Church, and in this respect to be exempted out of the number of men.
  5. Galatians 1:4 The sum of the true Gospel is this, that Christ by his only offering, saveth us being chosen out from the world, by the free decree of God the Father.
  6. Galatians 1:4 Out of that [most] corrupt state which is without Christ.
