1 Sha'ul, an emissary - not from men, nor by a man, but by יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ and יהוה the Father who raised Him from the dead -
2 and all the brothers who are with me, to the assemblies of Galatia:
3 Favour to you and peace from יהוה the Father and our Master יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ,
4 who gave Himself for our sins, to deliver us out of this present wicked age, according to the desire of our Elohim and Father,
5 to whom be the praise forever and ever. Amĕn.
I marvel that you are so readily turning away from Him who called you in the favour of Mashiaḥ, to a different ‘Good
8 However, even if we, or a messenger out of the shamayim, bring a ‘Good News' to you beside what we announced to you, let him be accursed.
9 As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone brings a ‘Good News' to you beside what you have received, let him be accursed.
10 For do I now persuade men, or Elohim? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I should not be a servant of Mashiaḥ.
11 And I make known to you, brothers, that the Good News announced by me is not according to man.
12 For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but through a revelation of יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ.
13 For you have heard of my former way behaviour life in Yahuḏaism, how intensely I persecuted the assembly of Elohim, and ravaged it.
14 And I progressed in Yahuḏaism beyond many of my age in my race, being more exceedingly ardent for the traditions of my fathers.
15 But when it pleased Elohim, who separated me from my mother's womb and called me by His favour,
16 to reveal His Bĕn in me, that I might bring Him, the Good News, to the gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood,
17 neither did I go up to Yerushalayim, to those who were emissaries before me. But I went to Araḇia, and returned again to Dammaseq.
18 Then after three years I went up to Yerushalayim to learn from Kĕpha, and remained with him for fifteen days.
19 And I saw no other of the emissaries except Yaʽaqoḇ, the brother of the Master.
20 And what I write to you, see, before Elohim, I do not lie.
21 Then I went into the districts of Suria and of Kilikia.
22 And I was not known by sight to the assemblies of Yahuḏah which were in Mashiaḥ,
23 but they were hearing only that, "The one who once persecuted us now brings as Good News the belief which he once ravaged."
24 So they were esteeming Elohim in me.
