Previous chapter
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 gospel:
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 Cilicia;
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.

Event: Conversion of Saul

1 Paulus apostolus non ab hominibus neque per hominem sed per Iesum Christum et Deum Patrem qui suscitavit eum a mortuis
2 et qui mecum sunt omnes fratres ecclesiis Galatiae
3 gratia vobis et pax a Deo Patre et Domino nostro Iesu Christo
4 qui dedit semet ipsum pro peccatis nostris ut eriperet nos de praesenti saeculo nequam secundum voluntatem Dei et Patris nostri
5 cui est gloria in saecula saeculorum amen
6 miror quod sic tam cito transferimini ab eo qui vos vocavit in gratiam Christi in aliud evangelium
7 quod non est aliud nisi sunt aliqui qui vos conturbant et volunt convertere evangelium Christi
8 sed licet nos aut angelus de caelo evangelizet vobis praeterquam quod evangelizavimus vobis anathema sit
9 sicut praediximus et nunc iterum dico si quis vobis evangelizaverit praeter id quod accepistis anathema sit
10 modo enim hominibus suadeo aut Deo aut quaero hominibus placere si adhuc hominibus placerem Christi servus non essem
11 notum enim vobis facio fratres evangelium quod evangelizatum est a me quia non est secundum hominem
12 neque enim ego ab homine accepi illud neque didici sed per revelationem Iesu Christi
13 audistis enim conversationem meam aliquando in iudaismo quoniam supra modum persequebar ecclesiam Dei et expugnabam illam
14 et proficiebam in iudaismo supra multos coetaneos in genere meo abundantius aemulator existens paternarum mearum traditionum
15 cum autem placuit ei qui me segregavit de utero matris meae et vocavit per gratiam suam
16 ut revelaret Filium suum in me ut evangelizarem illum in gentibus continuo non adquievi carni et sanguini
17 neque veni Hierosolyma ad antecessores meos apostolos sed abii in Arabiam et iterum reversus sum Damascum
18 deinde post annos tres veni Hierosolyma videre Petrum et mansi apud eum diebus quindecim
19 alium autem apostolorum vidi neminem nisi Iacobum fratrem Domini
20 quae autem scribo vobis ecce coram Deo quia non mentior
21 deinde veni in partes Syriae et Ciliciae
22 eram autem ignotus facie ecclesiis Iudaeae quae erant in Christo
23 tantum autem auditum habebant quoniam qui persequebatur nos aliquando nunc evangelizat fidem quam aliquando expugnabat
24 et in me clarificabant Deum
