Galatians   chapter 1

   1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but
  by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him
  from the dead;)
   2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the
  churches of Galatia:
   3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and
  from our Lord Jesus Christ,
   4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might
  deliver us from 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 ye are so soon removed from him that
  called you into the grace of Christ unto another
   7 Which is not another; but there be some that
  trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
   8 But though we, 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 than that ye have
  received, let him be accursed.
  10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to
  please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be
  the servant of Christ.
  11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which
  was preached of me is not after man.
  12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I
  taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
  13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past
  in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I
  persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
  14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my
  equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly
  zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
  15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my
  mother's womb, and called me by his grace,
  16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him
  among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with
  flesh 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 I went up to Jerusalem to
  see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
  19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James
  the Lord's brother.
  20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold,
  before God, I lie not.
  21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and
  22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of
  Judaea which were 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. Galatians chapter 2
