The Epistle to the Galatians of the Christian Holy Bible

The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Galatians   

Galatians 1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but  by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from  the dead;) 

Galatians 1:2 And all the brethren which are with me,  unto the churches of Galatia: 

Galatians 1:3 Grace be to you and  peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus  Christ, 

Galatians 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might  deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will  of God and our Father: 

Galatians 1:5 To whom be glory for ever  and ever. Amen.  

Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that  called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:  

Galatians 1:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble  you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 

Galatians 1:8 But  though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other  gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto  you, let him be accursed. 

The Galatians

Galatians 1:9 As we said before, so say I  now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you  than that ye have received, let him be accursed.  
Galatians 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek  to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the  servant of Christ. 
Galatians 1:11 But I certify you, brethren, that the  gospel which was preached of me is not after man. 
Galatians 1:12  For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but  by the revelation of Jesus Christ. 
Galatians 1:13 For ye have heard  of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how  that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and  wasted it: 
Galatians 1:14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above  many my equals in mine own nation, being more  exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. 
Galatians 1:15  But when it pleased God, who separated me from my  mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, 
Galatians 1:16 To  reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the  heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:  
Galatians 1:17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were  apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned  again unto Damascus. 
Galatians 1:18 Then after three years I went  up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen  days. 
Galatians 1:19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save  James the Lord’s brother. 
Galatians 1:20 Now the things which I  write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not. 
Galatians 1:21  Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;  
Galatians 1:22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of  Judaea which were in Christ: 
Galatians 1:23 But they had heard  only, That he which persecuted us in times past now  preacheth the faith which once he destroyed. 
Galatians 1:24 And  they glorified God in me.  

Chapter 2
Galatians 2:1 Then fourteen years after I went up again to  Jerusalem with Barnabas, and took Titus with me also.  
Galatians 2:2 And I went up by revelation, and communicated unto  them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but  privately to them which were of reputation, lest by any  means I should run, or had run, in vain. 
Galatians 2:3 But neither  Titus, who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to  be circumcised: 
Galatians 2:4 And that because of false brethren  unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our  liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring  us into bondage: 
Galatians 2:5 To whom we gave place by  subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel  might continue with you. 
Galatians 2:6 But of these who seemed to  be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to  me: God accepteth no man’s person:) for they who seemed  to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me: 
Galatians 2:7  But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the  uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of  the circumcision was unto Peter; 
Galatians 2:8 (For he that  wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the  circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the  Gentiles:) 
Galatians 2:9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who  seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given  unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of  fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they  unto the circumcision. 
Galatians 2:10 Only they would that we  should remember the poor; the same which I also was  forward to do. 
Galatians 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch,  I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.   
Galatians 2:12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat  with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew  and separated himself, fearing them which were of the  circumcision. 
Galatians 2:13 And the other Jews dissembled  likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried  away with their dissimulation. 
Galatians 2:14 But when I saw that  they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the  gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a  Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the  Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the  Jews? 
Galatians 2:15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners  of the Gentiles, 
Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified  by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ,  even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be  justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the  law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.  
Galatians 2:17 But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we  ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the  minister of sin? God forbid. 
Galatians 2:18 For if I build again the  things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.  
Galatians 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I  might live unto God. 
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ:  nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the  life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the  Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.  
Galatians 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if  righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.  

Chapter 3
Galatians 3:1 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that  ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ  hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 
Galatians 3:2  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by  the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 
Galatians 3:3 Are  ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made  perfect by the flesh? 
Galatians 3:4 Have ye suffered so many things  in vain? if it be yet in vain. 
Galatians 3:5 He therefore that  ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among  you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing  of faith? 
Galatians 3:6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was  accounted to him for righteousness.  
Galatians 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the  same are the children of Abraham. 
Galatians 3:8 And the scripture,  foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith,  preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee  shall all nations be blessed. 
Galatians 3:9 So then they which be of  faith are blessed with faithful Abraham. 
Galatians 3:10 For as many  as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is  written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all  things which are written in the book of the law to do them.  
Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of  God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 
Galatians 3:12  And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them  shall live in them. 
Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the  curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written,  Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 
Galatians 3:14 That    
Galatians Page 670   the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles  through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of  the Spirit through faith. 
Galatians 3:15 Brethren, I speak after the  manner of men; Though it be but a man’s covenant, yet if  it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.   
Galatians 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises  made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one,  And to thy seed, which is Christ. 
Galatians 3:17 And this I say,  that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in  Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years  after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of  none effect. 
Galatians 3:18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it  is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by  promise. 
Galatians 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was  added because of transgressions, till the seed should come  to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by  angels in the hand of a mediator. 
Galatians 3:20 Now a mediator is  not a mediator of one, but God is one. 
Galatians 3:21 Is the law  then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there  had been a law given which could have given life, verily  righteousness should have been by the law. 
Galatians 3:22 But the  scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by  faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.  
Galatians 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law,  shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.  
Galatians 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring  us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 
Galatians 3:25  But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a  schoolmaster. 
Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by  faith in Christ Jesus. 
Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as have  been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 
Galatians 3:28 There  is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free,  there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ  Jesus. 
Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye  Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.  

Chapter 4
Galatians 4:1 Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child,  differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all;  
Galatians 4:2 But is under tutors and governors until the time  appointed of the father. 
Galatians 4:3 Even so we, when we were  children, were in bondage under the elements of the world:  
Galatians 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent  forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 
Galatians 4:5  To redeem them that were under the law, that we might  receive the adoption of sons. 
Galatians 4:6 And because ye are  sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your  hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 
Galatians 4:7 Wherefore thou art no  more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God  through Christ.  
Galatians 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did  service unto them which by nature are no gods. 
Galatians 4:9 But  now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of  God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements,  whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? 
Galatians 4:10 Ye  observe days, and months, and times, and years. 
Galatians 4:11 I  am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in  vain.  
Galatians 4:12 Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as  ye are: ye have not injured me at all. 
Galatians 4:13 Ye know how  through infirmity of the flesh I preached the gospel unto you  at the first. 
Galatians 4:14 And my temptation which was in my  flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an  angel of God, even as Christ Jesus. 
Galatians 4:15 Where is then  the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it  had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own  eyes, and have given them to me. 
Galatians 4:16 Am I therefore  become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? 
Galatians 4:17  They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would  exclude you, that ye might affect them. 
Galatians 4:18 But it is  good to be zealously affected always in a good thing,  and not only when I am present with you. 
Galatians 4:19 My little  children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be  formed in you, 
Galatians 4:20 I desire to be present with you now,  and to change my voice; for I stand in doubt of you.   
Galatians 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye  not hear the law? 
Galatians 4:22 For it is written, that Abraham had  two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.  
Galatians 4:23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after  the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 
Galatians 4:24  Which things are an allegory: for these are the two  covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth  to bondage, which is Agar. 
Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount  Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is,  and is in bondage with her children. 
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem  which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. 
Galatians 4:27  For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not;  break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate  hath many more children than she which hath an husband.  
Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of  promise. 
Galatians 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh  persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it  is now. 
Galatians 4:30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast  out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the  bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free  woman. 
Galatians 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the  bondwoman, but of the free.  

Chapter 5
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ  hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke  of bondage.  
Galatians 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be  circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 
Galatians 5:3 For I  testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a  debtor to do the whole law. 
Galatians 5:4 Christ is become of no  effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law;  ye are fallen from grace. 
Galatians 5:5 For we through the Spirit  wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 
Galatians 5:6 For in  Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor  uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. 
Galatians 5:7 Ye  did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the  truth? 
Galatians 5:8 This persuasion cometh not of him that  calleth you. 
Galatians 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.  
Galatians 5:10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye  will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you  shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be. 
Galatians 5:11 And I,  brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer  persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased. 
Galatians 5:12  I would they were even cut off which trouble you. 
Galatians 5:13  For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use  not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve  one another. 
Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word,  even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  
Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that  ye be not consumed one of another. 
Galatians 5:16 This I say  then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the  flesh. 
Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the  Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the  other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 
Galatians 5:18  But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.  
Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are  these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,  
Galatians 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations,  wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 
Galatians 5:21 Envyings, murders,   drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell  you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they  which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.   
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,  longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 
Galatians 5:23  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 
Galatians 5:24  And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the  affections and lusts. 
Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us  also walk in the Spirit. 
Galatians 5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain  glory, provoking one another, envying one another.  

Chapter 6
Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which  are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness;  considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 
Galatians 6:2 Bear ye  one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. 
Galatians 6:3  For if a man think himself to be something, when he is  nothing, he deceiveth himself. 
Galatians 6:4 But let every man  prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in  himself alone, and not in another. 
Galatians 6:5 For every man shall  bear his own burden. 
Galatians 6:6 Let him that is taught in the  word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good  things. 
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for  whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 
Galatians 6:8 For  he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption;  but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life  everlasting. 
Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for  in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 
Galatians 6:10 As we  have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men,  especially unto them who are of the household of faith.  
Galatians 6:11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you  with mine own hand. 
Galatians 6:12 As many as desire to make a  fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised;  only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of  Christ. 
Galatians 6:13 For neither they themselves who are  circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you  circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh. 
Galatians 6:14 But  God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord  Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I  unto the world. 
Galatians 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither  circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a  new creature. 
Galatians 6:16 And as many as walk according to this  rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of  God. 

Galatians 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I  bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. 

Galatians 6:18  Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your  spirit. Amen.
