Galatians Chapter 1

Galatians 1:1 (NASB)

1 Paul, an apostle (not sent from men nor through the agency of man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised Him from the dead),

Galatians 1:2 (NASB)

2 and all the brethren who are with me, To the churches of Galatia:

Galatians 1:3 (NIV)

3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,

Galatians 1:4 (NASB)

4 who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father,

Galatians 1:5 (NIV)

5 to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Galatians 1:6 (AMP)

6 I am surprised and astonished that you are so quickly turning renegade and deserting Him Who invited and called you by the grace (unmerited favor) of Christ (the Messiah) [and that you are transferring your allegiance] to a different [even an opposition] gospel.

Galatians 1:7 (AMP)

7 Not that there is [or could be] any other [genuine Gospel], but there are [obviously] some who are troubling and disturbing and bewildering you [with a different kind of teaching which they offer as a gospel] and want to pervert and distort the Gospel of Christ (the Messiah) [into something which it absolutely is not].

Galatians 1:8 (NKJV)

8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:9 (NKJV)

9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:10 (CJB)

10 Now does that sound as if I were trying to win human approval? No! I want God’s approval! Or that I’m trying to cater to people? If I were still doing that, I would not be a servant of the Messiah.

Galatians 1:11 (NASB)

11 For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.

Galatians 1:12 (NASB)

12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

Galatians 1:13 (CJB)

13 For you have heard about my former way of life in [traditional] Judaism— how I did my best to persecute God’s Messianic Community and destroy it;

Galatians 1:14 (NASB)

14 and I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries among my countrymen, being more extremely zealous for my ancestral traditions.

Galatians 1:15 (NASB)

15 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased

Galatians 1:16 (NASB)

16 to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood,

Galatians 1:17 (NASB)

17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went away to Arabia, and returned once more to Damascus.

Galatians 1:18 (AMP)

18 Then three years later, I did go up to Jerusalem to become [personally] acquainted with Cephas (Peter), and remained with him for fifteen days.

Galatians 1:19 (NASB)

19 But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lord’s brother.

Galatians 1:20 (NIV)

20 I assure you before God that what I am writing you is no lie.

Galatians 1:21 (NASB)

21 Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia.

Galatians 1:22 (NASB)

22 I was still unknown by sight to the churches of Judea which were in Christ;

Galatians 1:23 (NIV)

23 They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.”

Galatians 1:24 (NASB)

24 And they were glorifying God because of me.

Galatians Chapter 2

Galatians 2:1 (NIV)

1 Fourteen years later I went up again to Jerusalem, this time with Barnabas. I took Titus along also.

Galatians 2:2 (NASB)

2 It was because of a revelation that I went up; and I submitted to them the gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but I did so in private to those who were of reputation, for fear that I might be running, or had run, in vain.

Galatians 2:3 (NASB)

3 But not even Titus, who was with me, though he was a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised.

Galatians 2:4 (AMP)

4 [My precaution was] because of false brethren who had been secretly smuggled in [to the Christian brotherhood]; they had slipped in to spy on our liberty and the freedom which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might again bring us into bondage [under the Law of Moses].

Galatians 2:5 (AMP)

5 To them we did not yield submission even for a moment, that the truth of the Gospel might continue to be [preserved] for you [in its purity].

Galatians 2:6 (NASB)

6 But from those who were of high reputation (what they were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality)—well, those who were of reputation contributed nothing to me.

Galatians 2:7 (NIV)

7 On the contrary, they saw that I had been entrusted with the task of preaching the gospel to the Gentiles, just as Peter had been to the Jews.

Galatians 2:8 (NIV)

8 For God, who was at work in the ministry of Peter as an apostle to the Jews, was also at work in my ministry as an apostle to the Gentiles.

Galatians 2:9 (NASB)

9 and recognizing the grace that had been given to me, James and Cephas and John, who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, so that we might go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.

Galatians 2:10 (NIV)

10 All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do.

Galatians 2:11 (NIV)

11 When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong.

Galatians 2:12 (NIV)

12 Before certain men came from James, he used to eat with the Gentiles. But when they arrived, he began to draw back and separate himself from the Gentiles because he was afraid of those who belonged to the circumcision group.

Galatians 2:13 (NIV)

13 The other Jews joined him in his hypocrisy, so that by their hypocrisy even Barnabas was led astray.

Galatians 2:14 (NIV)

14 When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, “You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs?

Galatians 2:15 (NIV)

15 “We who are Jews by birth and not ‘Gentile sinners’

Galatians 2:16 (NIV)

16 know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.

Galatians 2:17 (NASB)

17 “But if, while seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves have also been found sinners, is Christ then a minister of sin? May it never be!

Galatians 2:18 (CJB)

18 Indeed, if I build up again the legalistic bondage which I destroyed, I really do make myself a transgressor.

Galatians 2:19 (NASB)

19 “For through the Law I died to the Law, so that I might live to God.

Galatians 2:20 (NASB)

20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Galatians 2:21 (NKJV)

21 I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.”

Galatians Chapter 3

Galatians 3:1 (NKJV)

1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?

Galatians 3:2 (NASB)

2 This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?

Galatians 3:3 (NIV)

3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?

Galatians 3:4 (CJB)

4 Have you suffered so much for nothing? If that’s the way you think, your suffering certainly will have been for nothing!

Galatians 3:5 (NASB)

5 So then, does He who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?

Galatians 3:6 (NIV)

6 Consider Abraham: “He believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Galatians 3:7 (NIV)

7 Understand, then, that those who believe are children of Abraham.

Galatians 3:8 (NIV)

8 The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.”

Galatians 3:9 (NIV)

9 So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.

Galatians 3:10 (CJB)

10 For everyone who depends on legalistic observance of Torah commands lives under a curse, since it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not keep on doing everything written in the Scroll of the Torah.”

Galatians 3:11 (NIV)

11 Clearly no one is justified before God by the law, because, “The righteous will live by faith.”

Galatians 3:12 (AMP)

12 But the Law does not rest on faith [does not require faith, has nothing to do with faith], for it itself says, He who does them [the things prescribed by the Law] shall live by them [not by faith].

Galatians 3:13 (NIV)

13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”

Galatians 3:14 (NIV)

14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

Galatians 3:15 (NIV)

15 Brothers, let me take an example from everyday life. Just as no one can set aside or add to a human covenant that has been duly established, so it is in this case.

Galatians 3:16 (CJB)-M

16 Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his seed. It doesn’t say, “and to seeds,” as if to many; on the contrary, it speaks of one — “and to your seed” — and this “one” is the Messiah.

Galatians 3:17 (NASB)

17 What I am saying is this: the Law, which came four hundred and thirty years later, does not invalidate a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to nullify the promise.

Galatians 3:18 (NKJV)

18 For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no longer of promise; but God gave it to Abraham by promise.

Galatians 3:19 (NIV)

19 What, then, was the purpose of the law? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was put into effect through angels by a mediator.

Galatians 3:20 (CJB)

20 Now a mediator implies more than one, but God is one.

Galatians 3:21 (CJB)

21 Does this mean that the legal part of the Torah stands in opposition to God’s promises? Heaven forbid! For if the legal part of the Torah which God gave had had in itself the power to give life, then righteousness really would have come by legalistically following such a Torah.

Galatians 3:22 (CJB)

22 But instead, the Tanakh shuts up everything under sin; so that what had been promised might be given, on the basis of Yeshua the Messiah’s trusting faithfulness, to those who continue to be trustingly faithful.

Galatians 3:23 (NIV)

23 Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed.

Galatians 3:24 (NASB)

24 Therefore the Law has become our tutor to lead us to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith.

Galatians 3:25 (NIV)

25 Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law.

Galatians 3:26 (AMP)

26 For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith.

Galatians 3:27 (NASB)

27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

Galatians 3:28 (NASB)

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:29 (NASB)

29 And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to promise.

Galatians Chapter 4

Galatians 4:1 (NIV)

1 What I am saying is that as long as the heir is a child, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate.

Galatians 4:2 (NIV)

2 He is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father.

Galatians 4:3 (AMP)

3 So we [Jewish Christians] also, when we were minors, were kept like slaves under [the rules of the Hebrew ritual and subject to] the elementary teachings of a system of external observations and regulations.

Galatians 4:4 (CJB)

4 but when the appointed time arrived, God sent forth his Son. He was born from a woman, born into a culture in which legalistic perversion of the Torah was the norm,

Galatians 4:5 (CJB)

5 so that he might redeem those in subjection to this legalism and thus enable us to be made God’s sons.

Galatians 4:6 (CJB)

6 Now because you are sons, God has sent forth into our hearts the Spirit of his Son, the Spirit who cries out, “Abba!” (that is, “Dear Father!”).

Galatians 4:7 (CJB)

7 So through God you are no longer a slave but a son, and if you are a son you are also an heir.

Galatians 4:8 (AMP)

8 But at that previous time, when you had not come to be acquainted with and understand and know the true God, you [Gentiles] were in bondage to gods who by their very nature could not be gods at all [gods that really did not exist].

Galatians 4:9 (NASB)

9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again?

Galatians 4:10 (NIV)

10 You are observing special days and months and seasons and years!

Galatians 4:11 (NKJV)

11 I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.

Galatians 4:12 (CJB)

12 Brothers, I beg of you: put yourselves in my place — after all, I put myself in your place. It isn’t that you have done me any wrong —

Galatians 4:13 (AMP)

13 On the contrary, you know that it was on account of a bodily ailment that [I remained and] preached the Gospel to you the first time.

Galatians 4:14 (CJB)

14 and even though my physical condition must have tempted you to treat me with scorn, you did not display any sign of disdain or disgust. No, you welcomed me as if I had been an angel of God, as if I had been the Messiah Jesus himself!

Galatians 4:15 (NASB)

15 Where then is that sense of blessing you had? For I bear you witness that, if possible, you would have plucked out your eyes and given them to me.

Galatians 4:16 (CJB)

16 Have I now become your enemy because I tell you the truth?

Galatians 4:17 (AMP)

17 These men [the Judaizing teachers] are zealously trying to dazzle you [paying court to you, making much of you], but their purpose is not honorable or worthy or for any good. What they want to do is to isolate you [from us who oppose them], so that they may win you over to their side and get you to court their favor.

Galatians 4:18 (AMP)

18 It is always a fine thing [of course] to be zealously sought after [as you are, provided that it is] for a good purpose and done by reason of purity of heart and life, and not just when I am present with you!

Galatians 4:19 (CJB)

19 my dear children, I am suffering the pains of giving birth to you all over again — and this will go on until the Messiah takes shape in you.

Galatians 4:20 (AMP)

20 Would that I were with you now and could coax you vocally, for I am fearful and perplexed about you!

Galatians 4:21 (CJB)

21 Tell me, you who want to be in subjection to the system that results from perverting the Torah into legalism, don’t you hear what the Torah itself says?

Galatians 4:22 (NIV)

22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the free woman.

Galatians 4:23 (CJB)

23 The one by the slave woman was born according to the limited capabilities of human beings, but the one by the free woman was born through the miracle-working power of God fulfilling his promise.

Galatians 4:24 (AMP)

24 Now all this is an allegory; these [two women] represent two covenants. One covenant originated from Mount Sinai [where the Law was given] and bears [children destined] for slavery; this is Hagar.

Galatians 4:25 (AMP)

25 Now Hagar is (stands for) Mount Sinai in Arabia and she corresponds to and belongs in the same category with the present Jerusalem, for she is in bondage together with her children.

Galatians 4:26 (AMP)

26 But the Jerusalem above (the Messianic kingdom of Christ) is free, and she is our mother.

Galatians 4:27 (AMP)

27 For it is written in the Scriptures, Rejoice, O barren woman, who has not given birth to children; break forth into a joyful shout, you who are not feeling birth pangs, for the desolate woman has many more children than she who has a husband.

Galatians 4:28 (NASB)

28 And you brethren, like Isaac, are children of promise.

Galatians 4:29 (CJB)

29 But just as then the one born according to limited human capability persecuted the one born through the Spirit’s supernatural power, so it is now.

Galatians 4:30 (NIV)

30 But what does the Scripture say? “Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman’s son.”

Galatians 4:31 (NIV)

31 Therefore, brothers, we are not children of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

Galatians Chapter 5

Galatians 5:1 (CJB)

1 What the Messiah has freed us for is freedom! Therefore, stand firm, and don’t let yourselves be tied up again to a yoke of slavery.

Galatians 5:2 (AMP)

2 Notice, it is I, Paul, who tells you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no profit (advantage, avail) to you [for if you distrust Him, you can gain nothing from Him].

Galatians 5:3 (AMP)

3 I once more protest and testify to every man who receives circumcision that he is under obligation and bound to practice the whole of the Law and its ordinances.

Galatians 5:4 (CJB)

4 You who are trying to be declared righteous by God through legalism have severed yourselves from the Messiah! You have fallen away from God’s grace!

Galatians 5:5 (NKJV)

5 For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.

Galatians 5:6 (CJB)

6 When we are united with the Messiah Jesus, neither being circumcised nor being uncircumcised matters; what matters is trusting faithfulness expressing itself through love.

Galatians 5:7 (CJB)

7 You were running the race well; who has stopped you from following the truth?

Galatians 5:8 (AMP)

8 This [evil] persuasion is not from Him Who called you [Who invited you to freedom in Christ].

Galatians 5:9 (AMP)

9 A little leaven (a slight inclination to error, or a few false teachers) leavens the whole lump [it perverts the whole conception of faith or misleads the whole church].

Galatians 5:10 (CJB)

10 I am confident that since you are united with the Lord, you will take no other view; and I am confident that the one who has been disturbing you, whoever he may be, will have to bear his punishment.

Galatians 5:11 (NKJV)

11 And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased.

Galatians 5:12 (AMP)

12 I wish those who unsettle and confuse you would [go all the way and] cut themselves off!

Galatians 5:13 (NIV)

13 You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.

Galatians 5:14 (NIV)

14 The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Galatians 5:15 (AMP)

15 But if you bite and devour one another [in partisan strife], be careful that you [and your whole fellowship] are not consumed by one another.

Galatians 5:16 (NIV)

16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

Galatians 5:17 (NIV)

17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.

Galatians 5:18 (NIV)

18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

Galatians 5:19 (NIV)

19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

Galatians 5:20 (NIV)

20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

Galatians 5:21 (NIV)

21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:22 (NASB)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Galatians 5:23 (NASB)

23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:24 (NIV)

24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.

Galatians 5:25 (CJB)

25 Since it is through the Spirit that we have Life, let it also be through the Spirit that we order our lives day by day.

Galatians 5:26 (AMP)

26 Let us not become vainglorious and self-conceited, competitive and challenging and provoking and irritating to one another, envying and being jealous of one another.

Galatians Chapter 6

Galatians 6:1 (CJB)

1 Brothers, suppose someone is caught doing something wrong. You who have the Spirit should set him right, but in a spirit of humility, keeping an eye on yourselves so that you won’t be tempted too.

Galatians 6:2 (AMP)

2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete what is lacking [in your obedience to it].

Galatians 6:3 (AMP)

3 For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.

Galatians 6:4 (NIV)

4 Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,

Galatians 6:5 (NIV)

5 for each one should carry his own load.

Galatians 6:6 (AMP)

6 Let him who receives instruction in the Word [of God] share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his support].

Galatians 6:7 (NASB)

7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.

Galatians 6:8 (NIV)

8 The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Galatians 6:9 (NIV)

9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Galatians 6:10 (NIV)

10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Galatians 6:11 (KJV)

11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

Galatians 6:12 (NIV)

12 Those who want to make a good impression outwardly are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ.

Galatians 6:13 (AMP)

13 For even the circumcised [Jews] themselves do not [really] keep the Law, but they want to have you circumcised in order that they may glory in your flesh (your subjection to external rites).

Galatians 6:14 (NIV)

14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Galatians 6:15 (AMP)

15 For neither is circumcision [now] of any importance, nor uncircumcision, but [only] a new creation [the result of a new birth and a new nature in Christ Jesus, the Messiah].

Galatians 6:16 (AMP)

16 Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule [who discipline themselves and regulate their lives by this principle], even upon the [true] Israel of God!

Galatians 6:17 (AMP)

17 From now on let no person trouble me [by making it necessary for me to vindicate my apostolic authority and the divine truth of my Gospel], for I bear on my body the [brand] marks of the Lord Jesus [the wounds, scars, and other outward evidence of persecutions—these testify to His ownership of me]!

Galatians 6:18 (AMP)

18 The grace (spiritual favor, blessing) of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah) be with your spirit, brethren. Amen (so be it).
