Galatians 1 - KJV

No other gospel

1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but Acts 9:6;Tit. 1:3by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, Acts 2:24who raised him from the dead;)

2 And all the brethren Phil. 2:22which are with me, 1 Cor. 16:1unto the churches of Galatia:

3 1 Thes. 1:1Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

4 Mat. 20:28;Rom. 4:25;Tit. 2:14Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us Heb. 2:5;1 John 5:19from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

6 I marvel that you are so soon removed ch. 5:8from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

7 2 Cor. 11:4Which is not another; but there be some Acts 15:1;2 Cor. 2:17that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

8 But though 1 Cor. 16:22we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you Deut. 4:2;Prov. 30:6;Rev. 22:18than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

10 For 1 Thes. 2:4do I now 1 Sam. 24:7;Mat. 28:14persuade men, or God? or 1 Thes. 2:4;Jas. 4:4do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Paul's authority of divine origin

11 1 Cor. 15:1But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

12 For 1 Cor. 15:1I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but Eph. 3:3by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that Acts 9:1;1 Tim. 1:13beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and Acts 8:3wasted it:

14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my [a]equals in mine own nation, Acts 26:9;Phil. 3:6being more exceedingly zealous Jer. 9:14;Mat. 15:2;Mark 7:5of the traditions of my fathers.

15 But when it pleased God, Is. 49:1,5who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,

16 2 Cor. 4:6To reveal his Son in me, that Acts 9:15;Eph. 3:8I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with Mat. 16:17;Eph. 6:12flesh and blood:

17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me: but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.

18 Then after three years Acts 9:26I [b]went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.

19 But 1 Cor. 9:5other of the apostles saw I none, save Mat. 13:55James the Lord's brother.

20 Now the things which I write unto you, Rom. 9:1behold, before God, I lie not.

21 Acts 9:30Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;

22 And was unknown by face 1 Thes. 2:14unto the churches of Judea which Rom. 16:7were in Christ:

23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.

24 And they glorified God in me.
