Galatians 1 (WEBP)
 Paul, an apostle—not from men, nor through man, but through Jesus Christ,° and God the Father, who raised him from the dead—
 and all the brothers§ who are with me, to the assemblies of Galatia:
 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ,
 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—
 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
 I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different “good news”,
 but there isn’t another “good news.” Only there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the Good News of Christ.
 But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any “good news” other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed.
 As we have said before, so I now say again: if any man preaches to you any “good news” other than that which you received, let him be cursed.
 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.
 But I make known to you, brothers, concerning the Good News which was preached by me, that it is not according to man.
 For I didn’t receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came to me through revelation of Jesus Christ.
 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.
 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.
 But when it was the good pleasure of God, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me through his grace,
 to reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I didn’t immediately confer with flesh and blood,
 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.
 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Peter, and stayed with him fifteen days.
 But of the other apostles I saw no one except James, the Lord’s brother.
 Now about the things which I write to you, behold,§ before God, I’m not lying.
 Then I came to the regions of Syria and Cilicia.
 I was still unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea which were in Christ,
 but they only heard, “He who once persecuted us now preaches the faith that he once tried to destroy.”
 So they glorified God in me.
Galatians 1:1 “Christ” means “Anointed One”.
Galatians 1:2 The word for “brothers” here and where context allows may also be correctly translated “brothers and sisters” or “siblings.”
Galatians 1:20 “Behold”, from “ἰδοὺ”, means look at, take notice, observe, see, or gaze at. It is often used as an interjection.

Galatians 1 (KJVS)
 Paul G3972, an apostle G652, (not G3756 of G575 men G444, neither G3761 by G1223 man G444, but G235 by G1223 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, and G2532 God G2316 the Father G3962, who G3588 raised G1453 (AorActPtc) him G846 from G1537 the dead G3498;)
 And G2532 all G3956 the brethren G80 which are with G4862 me G1698, unto the churches G1577 of Galatia G1053:
 Grace G5485 [be] to you G5213 and G2532 peace G1515 from G575 God G2316 the Father G3962, and G2532 [from] our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547,
 Who G3588 gave G1325 (Aor2ActPtc) himself G1438 for G5228 our G2257 sins G266, that G3704 he might deliver G1807 (Aor2MidSubj) us G2248 from G1537 this present G1764 (PerfActPtc) evil G4190 world G165, according G2596 to the will G2307 of God G2316 and G2532 our G2257 Father G3962:
 To whom G3739 [be] glory G1391 for G1519 ever G165 and ever G165. Amen G281.
 I marvel G2296 (PresActInd) that G3754 ye are G3346 so G3779 soon G5030 removed G3346 (PresMidPasInd) from G575 him that called G2564 (AorActPtc) you G5209 into G1722 the grace G5485 of Christ G5547 unto G1519 another G2087 gospel G2098:
 Which G3739 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 another G243; but there be G1526 (PresInd) some G5100 that G1508 trouble G5015 (PresActPtc) you G5209, and G2532 would G2309 (PresActPtc) pervert G3344 (AorActInf) the gospel G2098 of Christ G5547.
 But G235 though G2532 G1437 we G2249, or G2228 an angel G32 from G1537 heaven G3772, preach any other gospel G2097 (PresMidSubj) unto you G5213 than G3844 that which G3739 we have preached G2097 (AorMidInd) unto you G5213, let him be G2077 (PresImpr) accursed G331.
 As G5613 we said before G4280 (PerfActInd), so G2532 say I G3004 (PresActInd) now G737 again G3825, If any G1536 [man] preach G2097 any other G3844 gospel G2097 (PresMidInd) unto you G5209 than G3844 that G3739 ye have received G3880 (Aor2ActInd), let him be G2077 (PresImpr) accursed G331.
 For G1063 do I G3982 now G737 persuade G3982 (PresActInd) men G444, or G2228 God G2316? or G2228 do I seek G2212 (PresActInd) to please G700 (PresActInf) men G444? for G1063 if G1487 I G700 yet G2089 pleased G700 (ImpfActInd) men G444, I should G302 not G3756 be G2252 (ImpfInd) the servant G1401 of Christ G5547.
 But G1161 I certify G1107 (PresActInd) you G5213, brethren G80, that G3754 the gospel G2098 which G3588 was preached G2097 (AorPasPtc) of G5259 me G1700 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 after G2596 man G444.
 For G1063 I G1473 neither G3761 received G3880 (Aor2ActInd) it G846 of G3844 man G444, neither G3777 was I taught G1321 (AorPasInd) [it], but G235 by G1223 the revelation G602 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
 For G1063 ye have heard G191 (AorActInd) of my G1699 conversation G391 in time past G4218 in G1722 the Jews’ religion G2454, how that G3754 beyond G2596 measure G5236 I persecuted G1377 (ImpfActInd) the church G1577 of God G2316, and G2532 wasted G4199 (ImpfActInd) it G846:
 And G2532 profited G4298 (ImpfActInd) in G1722 the Jews’ religion G2454 above G5228 many G4183 my equals G4915 in G1722 mine own G3450 nation G1085, being G5225 (PresActPtc) more exceedingly G4056 zealous G2207 of the traditions G3862 of my G3450 fathers G3967.
 But G1161 when G3753 it pleased G2106 (AorActInd) God G2316, who G3588 separated G873 (AorActPtc) me G3165 from G1537 my G3450 mother’s G3384 womb G2836, and G2532 called G2564 (AorActPtc) [me] by G1223 his G846 grace G5485,
 To reveal G601 (AorActInf) his G846 Son G5207 in G1722 me G1698, that G2443 I might preach G2097 (PresMidSubj) him G846 among G1722 the heathen G1484; immediately G2112 I conferred G4323 (Aor2MidInd) not G3756 with flesh G4561 and G2532 blood G129:
 Neither G3761 went I up G424 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Jerusalem G2414 to G4314 them which were apostles G652 before G4253 me G1700; but G235 I went G565 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 Arabia G688, and G2532 returned G5290 (AorActInd) again G3825 unto G1519 Damascus G1154.
 Then G1899 after G3326 three G5140 years G2094 I went up G424 (Aor2ActInd) to G1519 Jerusalem G2414 to see G2477 (AorActInf) Peter G4074, and G2532 abode G1961 (AorActInd) with G4314 him G846 fifteen G1178 days G2250.
 But G1161 other G2087 of the apostles G652 saw I G1492 (Aor2ActInd) none G3756, save G1508 James G2385 the Lord’s G2962 brother G80.
 Now G1161 the things which G3739 I write G1125 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), before G1799 God G2316, G3754 I lie G5574 (PresMidPasDepInd) not G3756.
 Afterwards G1899 I came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the regions G2824 of Syria G4947 and G2532 Cilicia G2791;
 And G1161 was G2252 (ImpfInd) unknown G50 (PresPasPtc) by face G4383 unto the churches G1577 of Judaea G2449 which G3588 were in G1722 Christ G5547:
 But G1161 they had G2258 (ImpfInd) heard G191 (PresActPtc) only G3440, That G3754 he which persecuted G1377 (PresActPtc) us G2248 in times past G4218 now G3568 preacheth G2097 (PresMidInd) the faith G4102 which G3739 once G4218 he destroyed G4199 (ImpfActInd).
 And G2532 they glorified G1392 (ImpfActInd) God G2316 in G1722 me G1698.
Young’s Literal Translation
Galatians 1 (YLT)
 Paul, an apostle-not from men, nor through man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who did raise him out of the dead-
 and all the brethren with me, to the assemblies of Galatia:
 Grace to you, and peace from God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ,
 who did give himself for our sins, that he might deliver us out of the present evil age, according to the will of God even our Father,
 to whom is the glory to the ages of the ages. Amen.
 I wonder that ye are so quickly removed from Him who did call you in the grace of Christ to another good news;
 that is not another, except there be certain who are troubling you, and wishing to pervert the good news of the Christ;
 but even if we or a messenger out of heaven may proclaim good news to you different from what we did proclaim to you-anathema let him be!
 as we have said before, and now say again, If any one to you may proclaim good news different from what ye did receive-anathema let him be!
 for now men do I persuade, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if yet men I did please-Christ’s servant I should not be.
 And I make known to you, brethren, the good news that were proclaimed by me, that it is not according to man,
 for neither did I from man receive it, nor was I taught it, but through a revelation of Jesus Christ,
 for ye did hear of my behaviour once in Judaism, that exceedingly I was persecuting the assembly of God, and wasting it,
 and I was advancing in Judaism above many equals in age in mine own race, being more abundantly zealous of my fathers’ deliverances,
 and when God was well pleased-having separated me from the womb of my mother, and having called me through His grace-
 to reveal His Son in me, that I might proclaim him good news among the nations, immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood,
 nor did I go up to Jerusalem unto those who were apostles before me, but I went away to Arabia, and again returned to Damascus,
 then, after three years I went up to Jerusalem to enquire about Peter, and remained with him fifteen days,
 and other of the apostles I did not see, except James, the brother of the Lord.
 And the things that I write to you, lo, before God-I lie not;
 then I came to the regions of Syria and of Cilicia,
 and was unknown by face to the assemblies of Judea, that are in Christ,
 and only they were hearing, that ‘he who is persecuting us then, doth now proclaim good news-the faith that then he was wasting;’
 and they were glorifying God in me.
