Galatians Chapter 1 In The KJV And AWPR Versions

Galatians:   Chapter 1

King James Version (KJV) in aqua Blue

Alternate Word Pictures with Reiterations Version (AWPR) in Yellow

My Comments are in Green

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

1)    Paul, an apostle   [one who is sent],
        certainly not from men,
        certainly not then    through man,
        but through Jesus Christ and Father GOD,
        He having raised Him (from lying down)
        upright out of (the) dead - upright out of the corpse.

2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:  (KJV)

2)   And all those brothers together (in company and associated)
       with me, 
       to the called out ones - to the Churches
       of Galatia:

3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,  (KJV)              

3)    Rejoicing grace to you, and peace  [in mind, body, and spirit]
        from Father GOD and our LORD, Jesus Christ,


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:    (KJV)

4)   He having of His own good will and accord given Himself
       over - in behalf of - for the sake of - on account of
       the sins of us,
       in such a manner that He might  select - choose  and take us out,
       out of the in standing - in enduring - in continuance
       age of evil / evil world  [in its age or duration of time]
       down in / according to    
       the will (and good pleasure) of the GOD and Father of us:

5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.  (KJV)        

5)    Whose (is) the thoughtful recognition and honor duly rendered -
        Whose (is) the Glory,
        into the Ages of the Ages.   Amen.  


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

6)    I admiringly wonder - I reverently marvel 
        that in this (one) manner  (you)  
        so nimbly and swiftly  - so quickly and promptly 
        are being transported - are being transferred
        from He    having called - summoned - invited  you
        in (the)  rejoicing grace of Christ
        into another (but) different Gospel,

7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.   (KJV)           

7)     Which is certainly not another of the same kind.
          If perhaps not,  there are some agitating and stirring 
          up trouble   [spreading doubt, emotional anxiety and perplexity],
          willing - desiring - having in mind the intent or purpose
          to change and turn about the direction of the Gospel of Christ 
         from the midst of  [it, from in and  amongst you].

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.   (KJV)        

8)    But even if perhaps we, or an angel out of Heaven, 
        evangelize - preach a Good News - proclaim a Gospel
        to you,     near to (but falling short) /  aside  from
        what Gospel we evangelized, having proclaimed to you,
        let him be by vow declared and made known
        (that he has been) by vow given over and placed.
        [He is given over to no longer be aided, touched, 
         communicated with, or helped in any way.]

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.  (KJV)              

9)    (Just) As we said before,  also now at this present moment
        I lay down definite words and say again,
           If perhaps a certain one - anyone  of you
           evangelizes - preaches a good news - proclaims a Gospel
           near to (but falling short) /  aside from 
           what you have taken up and seized - what you have received 
           into possession  [for yourselves],
           let him be by vow declared and made known 
           (that he has been) by vow given over and placed
           [no longer to be aided, touched, communicated with, or 
             helped in any way]
           for now, at this present moment.

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.    (KJV)                  

10)    Do I (with kindness) confidently persuade - convince 
          men, or GOD?
          Or do I seek and strive to find an adaptation pleasing and
          fitting  (to be joined)
          [down to the feet, as a lower part of a robe] 
          to men?

          If perhaps      for - because - yet - still       men
          I pleased  (by joining, adapting, fitting in),
          I certainly would not be    an attending and ministering slave
          of Christ.       

11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.    (KJV)       

11)    Then I declared and made known to you, brothers,     
         the Gospel - the Good News - the Evangelism:
         the Gospel which was proclaimed under me,
         [Note: infers a sizeable group of evangelicals led by Paul ] 
         because it is certainly not down upon / according to man.

12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.    (KJV)                   

12)    For I certainly not  from (the proximity of) man 
          have taken up and seized it  -  have received it,
          not even - neither - nor   
          was I instructed [as by a tutor] - taught.

          But through a revealing and uncovering with interpretation
          of that which was seen and shown   of Jesus Christ.

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:   (KJV)

13)     For you listened intently and heard of
           my turning about actions / my deeds of conduct
           when in the Judaism,        because down with a 
           throwing beyond - exceeding and surpassing (excellence
           or zeal)     
           I pursued and followed after - I (hunted and ) persecuted
           the called out ones - the Church      of GOD
           and ravaged and destroyed it.

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.   (KJV)

14)    And (with each strike, cutting, or beating [upon others])
          progressed - proceeded forward in the Judaism 
          over (and above) many   
          of the same age together - contemporaries
          in the that which becomes - in the race - in the stock
          of me: 
          abundantly more  [than any of my contemporaries]
          a zealot - one openly professing and demonstrating acts or 
          remonstrations of affection, envy, jealousy, fervor  (for or over);
          being in possession and existing in and of the paternally
          passed [from father to son]  ancestral of me traditions.  

15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,  (KJV)           

15)    Then, when GOD thought or considered to be good,
          He having marked out and boundaried away from -
          He having separated me out of

          my mother's hollow - my mother's womb,
          and having called forth - and having summoned and invited
          through the rejoicing grace of Him

16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:   (KJV)         

16)    To unveil - To uncover     (with interpretation that which
          was previously     hidden, veiled, covered, kept secret)

         and reveal the Son of Him in me, 
         in order that 
         I might evangelize - proclaim and preach as good news
         in the ethnic nations.

         I certainly did not  straightway - immediately
         lay up communication up alongside with (or before)  -  confer
         with flesh and blood:

17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.   (KJV)           

17)   Certainly not, then, did I come up and enter into Jerusalem
         up alongside with the Apostles before me;
         but I withdrew and departed - but I went away
         into Arabia,
         and again turned back and returned into Damascus.

18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.    (KJV)            

18)   Upon thereafter,  in the midst of / after (about)    3 years,
         I came up and went forth (so as to make a public appearance)
         into Jerusalem
         to personally ascertain and know the history  from Peter,
         and remained and dwelt - lived   up alongside with him 
         15 days.

19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord's brother.  (KJV)

19)   Then other  (different ones)  of the Apostles,
         I certainly saw not and knew not
         except Jacob / James, the brother of the LORD.

20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.   (KJV)            

20)   Then, what I write - what I inscribe   to you:
         behold, look and see,
         in the face of - in the presence of - before      GOD,
         that I certainly do not
         falsify [in what I say] - lie, defraud, cheat [in what I say].

21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;   (KJV)          

21)    Upon thereafter,
         I went forth (so as to make a public appearance)
         into the   inclines - climates - regions    of Syria
         and of Cilicia.

22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:   (KJV)                            

22)    Then I was not 
          perceived (by the mind) - not thoughtfully recognized  
          by countenance - by face
          to the called out ones - to the Churches   of Judea in Christ.

23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.   (KJV)                     

23)   Then only - alone and by itself
         they were intently listening and hearing 
         that he pursuingly chasing and persecuting  
         us at one time (in the past) whenever,
         now evangelizes - now preaches the good news - now proclaims
         the Gospel,
         the trusting faith,
         that which then  at one time (in the past) whenever,
         he ravaged and destroyed.                

24 And they glorified God in me.   (KJV)                

24)    And they gave thoughtful recognition ascribing 
          honor and praise, and glorified GOD in me.
