1 Paul, aan apostle (bnot sent from men nor through the agency of man, but cthrough Jesus Christ and God the Father, who draised Him from the dead),
2 and all athe brethren who are with me,
To bthe churches of Galatia:
3 aGrace to you and peace from 1God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
4 who agave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from bthis present evil 1age, according to the will of cour God and Father,
5 ato whom be the glory forevermore. Amen.
Perversion of the Gospel
6 I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting aHim who called you 1by the grace of Christ, for a bdifferent gospel;
7 which is really not another; only there are some who are adisturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
8 But even if we, or aan angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel 1contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be 2baccursed!
9 As we ahave said before, so I say again now, bif any man is preaching to you a gospel 1contrary to what you received, he is to be 2caccursed!
10 For am I now aseeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bbond-servant of Christ.
