ALT(i) 1 Paul, an apostle (not from people [or, a human [authority]] nor by a person, but by Jesus Christ, and God [the] Father, the One having raised Him from [the] dead) 2 and all the brothers [and sisters] with me, to the assemblies [or, churches] of Galatia: 3 Grace to youp and peace from God [the] Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 the One having given Himself for our sins, in order that He should deliver us out of the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom [be] the glory into the ages of the ages [fig., forever and ever]! So be it! 6 I marvel [or, am amazed] that youp are so quickly turning away [or, apostatizing] from the One having called youp in [or, by] the grace of Christ to a different gospel, 7 which is not another [Gospel], except there are some, the ones having disturbed youp and desiring to distort the Gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel out of heaven shall himself be proclaiming a gospel to youp besides [or, contrary to] what we proclaimed to youp, let him be accursed [Gr., anathema]! 9 As we have forewarned and now say again, if anyone shall be proclaiming a gospel to youp besides [or, contrary to] what youp received, let him be accursed! 10 For am I now persuading [or, seeking the approval of] people or God? Or am I seeking to be pleasing people? For if I am still trying to please people, I would not be Christ's slave. 11 But I make known to youp, brothers [and sisters], the Gospel, the one having been proclaimed by me, that it is not according to humanity [or, human [standards]]. 12 For neither did I receive it from humanity [or, human [origins]], nor was I taught [it], but [I received it] through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For youp heard of my former conduct in Judaism, that I was excessively persecuting the Assembly [or, Church] of God and trying to destroy it. 14 And I was advancing in Judaism above many contemporaries [or, beyond many of my own age] among my race, being far more a zealot for the handed down teachings [or, traditions] of my forefathers. 15 But when God, the One having separated [or, appointed] me from [the] womb of my mother and having called [me] by His grace, was well pleased 16 to reveal His Son in me, so that I should be proclaiming the Gospel [of] Him among the nations, I did not immediately confer with [or, ask advice from] flesh and blood [fig., any human being]; 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to the [ones who were] apostles before me, but I went away to Arabia and returned again to Damascus. 18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit with Peter and stayed with him fifteen days. 19 But I did not see [any] other of the apostles, except James, the brother of the Lord. 20 (Now the [things] I am writing to youp, listen!, before God I am not lying.) 21 Then I came to the regions of Syria and of Cilicia. 22 But I was unknown by face [or, personally] to the assemblies [or, churches] of Judea, the [ones] in Christ. 23 But only they kept hearing, "The one having persecuted us at one time is now proclaiming the Gospel— the faith which at one time he was trying to destroy!" 24 And they were glorifying God in [or, because of] me.
