And all the brothers who are with me, to the churches of Galatia:
Who gave himself for our sins, so that he might make us free from this present evil world, after the purpose of our God and Father:
As we have said before, so say I now again, If any man is a preacher to you of any good news other than that which has been given to you, let there be a curse on him.
Because I say to you, my brothers, that the good news of which I was the preacher is not man's.
For news has come to you of my way of life in the past in the Jews' religion, how I was cruel without measure to the church of God, and did great damage to it:
And I went farther in the Jews' religion than a number of my generation among my countrymen, having a more burning interest in the beliefs handed down from my fathers.
To give the revelation of his Son in me, so that I might give the news of him to the Gentiles; then I did not take the opinion of flesh and blood,
And I went not up to Jerusalem to those who were Apostles before me; but I went away into Arabia, and again I came back to Damascus.
Then I came to the parts of Syria and Cilicia.
