1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Yahushua the Messiah, and YHWH the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
1:2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the assemblies of Galatia:
1:3 Favour be to you and peace from YHWH the Father, and from our Master Yahushua the Messiah,
1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of YHWH our Father:
1:5 To whom be glory for ever and ever, amein.
1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the favour of the Messiah unto another evangel:
1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the glad tidings of the Messiah.
1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other evangel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other evangel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
1:10 For do I now persuade men, or YHWH? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of the Messiah.
1:11 But I certify you, brethren, that the glad tidings which was preached of me is not after man.
1:12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Yahushua the Messiah.
1:13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the assembly of YHWH, and wasted it:
1:14 And profited in the Jews' religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
1:15 But when it pleased YHWH, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his favour,
1:16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
1:17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
1:18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Kepha, and abode with him fifteen days.
1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Master's brother.
1:20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before YHWH, I lie not.
1:21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
1:22 And was unknown by face unto the assemblies of Judaea which were in the Messiah:
1:23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
1:24 And they glorified YHWH in me.
