1 Paul, an apostle (not from men, neither through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead),

1 παῦλος ἀπόστολος, οὐκ ἀπ᾽ ἀνθρώπων οὐδὲ δι᾽ ἀνθρώπου ἀλλὰ διὰ ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ πατρὸς τοῦ ἐγείραντος αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν,

2 and all the brothers{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} who are with me, to the assemblies of Galatia:

2 καὶ οἱ σὺν ἐμοὶ πάντες ἀδελφοί, ταῖς ἐκκλησίαις τῆς γαλατίας·

3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ,

3 χάρις ὑμῖν καὶ εἰρήνη ἀπὸ θεοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν καὶ κυρίου ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ,

4 who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father--

4 τοῦ δόντος ἑαυτὸν ὑπὲρ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ἡμῶν ὅπως ἐξέληται ἡμᾶς ἐκ τοῦ αἰῶνος τοῦ ἐνεστῶτος πονηροῦ κατὰ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ πατρὸς ἡμῶν,

5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

5 ᾧ ἡ δόξα εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων· ἀμήν.

Ark.au Illustrated Bible - Galatians 1:5 - to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

6 I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different gospel;

6 θαυμάζω ὅτι οὕτως ταχέως μετατίθεσθε ἀπὸ τοῦ καλέσαντος ὑμᾶς ἐν χάριτι [χριστοῦ] εἰς ἕτερον εὐαγγέλιον,

7 and there isn't another gospel. Only there are some who trouble you, and want to pervert the Gospel of Christ.

7 ὃ οὐκ ἔστιν ἄλλο· εἰ μή τινές εἰσιν οἱ ταράσσοντες ὑμᾶς καὶ θέλοντες μεταστρέψαι τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τοῦ χριστοῦ.

8 But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any gospel other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed.

8 ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐὰν ἡμεῖς ἢ ἄγγελος ἐξ οὐρανοῦ εὐαγγελίζηται [ὑμῖν] παρ᾽ ὃ εὐηγγελισάμεθα ὑμῖν, ἀνάθεμα ἔστω.

9 As we have said before, so I now say again: if any man preaches to you any gospel other than that which you received, let him be cursed.

9 ὡς προειρήκαμεν, καὶ ἄρτι πάλιν λέγω, εἴ τις ὑμᾶς εὐαγγελίζεται παρ᾽ ὃ παρελάβετε, ἀνάθεμα ἔστω.

10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? For if I were still pleasing men, I wouldn't be a servant of Christ.

10 ἄρτι γὰρ ἀνθρώπους πείθω ἢ τὸν θεόν; ἢ ζητῶ ἀνθρώποις ἀρέσκειν; εἰ ἔτι ἀνθρώποις ἤρεσκον, χριστοῦ δοῦλος οὐκ ἂν ἤμην.

11 But I make known to you, brothers, concerning the Gospel which was preached by me, that it is not according to man.

11 γνωρίζω γὰρ ὑμῖν, ἀδελφοί, τὸ εὐαγγέλιον τὸ εὐαγγελισθὲν ὑπ᾽ ἐμοῦ ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν κατὰ ἄνθρωπον·

12 For neither did I receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through revelation of Jesus Christ.

12 οὐδὲ γὰρ ἐγὼ παρὰ ἀνθρώπου παρέλαβον αὐτό, οὔτε ἐδιδάχθην, ἀλλὰ δι᾽ ἀποκαλύψεως ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ.

13 For you have heard of my way of living in time past in the Jews' religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the assembly of God, and ravaged it.

13 ἠκούσατε γὰρ τὴν ἐμὴν ἀναστροφήν ποτε ἐν τῶ ἰουδαϊσμῶ, ὅτι καθ᾽ ὑπερβολὴν ἐδίωκον τὴν ἐκκλησίαν τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπόρθουν αὐτήν,

14 I advanced in the Jews' religion beyond many of my own age among my countrymen, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.

14 καὶ προέκοπτον ἐν τῶ ἰουδαϊσμῶ ὑπὲρ πολλοὺς συνηλικιώτας ἐν τῶ γένει μου, περισσοτέρως ζηλωτὴς ὑπάρχων τῶν πατρικῶν μου παραδόσεων.

15 But when it was the good pleasure of God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me through his grace,

15 ὅτε δὲ εὐδόκησεν [ὁ θεὸς] ὁ ἀφορίσας με ἐκ κοιλίας μητρός μου καὶ καλέσας διὰ τῆς χάριτος αὐτοῦ

16 to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I didn't immediately confer with flesh and blood,

16 ἀποκαλύψαι τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐν ἐμοὶ ἵνα εὐαγγελίζωμαι αὐτὸν ἐν τοῖς ἔθνεσιν, εὐθέως οὐ προσανεθέμην σαρκὶ καὶ αἵματι,

17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia. Then I returned to Damascus.

17 οὐδὲ ἀνῆλθον εἰς ἱεροσόλυμα πρὸς τοὺς πρὸ ἐμοῦ ἀποστόλους, ἀλλὰ ἀπῆλθον εἰς ἀραβίαν, καὶ πάλιν ὑπέστρεψα εἰς δαμασκόν.

18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Peter, and stayed with him fifteen days.

18 ἔπειτα μετὰ ἔτη τρία ἀνῆλθον εἰς ἱεροσόλυμα ἱστορῆσαι κηφᾶν, καὶ ἐπέμεινα πρὸς αὐτὸν ἡμέρας δεκαπέντε·

19 But of the other apostles I saw no one, except James, the Lord's brother.

19 ἕτερον δὲ τῶν ἀποστόλων οὐκ εἶδον, εἰ μὴ ἰάκωβον τὸν ἀδελφὸν τοῦ κυρίου.

20 Now about the things which I write to you, behold, before God, I'm not lying.

20 ἃ δὲ γράφω ὑμῖν, ἰδοὺ ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ ὅτι οὐ ψεύδομαι.

21 Then I came to the regions of Syria and Cilicia.

21 ἔπειτα ἦλθον εἰς τὰ κλίματα τῆς συρίας καὶ τῆς κιλικίας.

22 I was still unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea which were in Christ,

22 ἤμην δὲ ἀγνοούμενος τῶ προσώπῳ ταῖς ἐκκλησίαις τῆς ἰουδαίας ταῖς ἐν χριστῶ,

23 but they only heard: "He who once persecuted us now preaches the faith that he once tried to destroy."

23 μόνον δὲ ἀκούοντες ἦσαν ὅτι ὁ διώκων ἡμᾶς ποτε νῦν εὐαγγελίζεται τὴν πίστιν ἥν ποτε ἐπόρθει,

24 And they glorified God in me.

24 καὶ ἐδόξαζον ἐν ἐμοὶ τὸν θεόν.
