Παῦλος ἀπόστολος οὐκ ἀπ’ ἀνθρώπων οὐδὲ δι’ ἀνθρώπου ἀλλὰ διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ καὶ θεοῦ πατρὸς τοῦ ἐγείραντος αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν καὶ οἱ σὺν ἐμοὶ πάντες ἀδελφοί ταῖς ἐκκλησίαις τῆς Γαλατίας χάρις ὑμῖν καὶ εἰρήνη ἀπὸ θεοῦ πατρὸς καὶ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τοῦ δόντος ἑαυτὸν ὑπὲρ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ἡμῶν ὅπως ἐξέληται ἡμᾶς ἐκ τοῦ ἐνεστῶτος αἰῶνος πονηροῦ κατὰ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ πατρὸς ἡμῶν ᾧ ἡ δόξα εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων ἀμήν

Geneva Bible, 1599

Paul1 an Apostle (not of mena, neither by manb, αbut by Jesus Christc, and God the Father which hath raised him from the dead.) And all the brethren which are with me, unto the Churches of Galatia: Grace be with you, and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Which2 gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver usβ from this present evil worldd according to the will of God even our Father, To whom be glory forever and ever, Amen.

α Tit 1:3
β Lu 1:74


Geneva Bible Notes
1 A salutation comprehending in few words, the sum of the Apostle’s doctrine, and also besides straightway from the beginning, shewing the gravity meet for the authority of an Apostle, which he had to maintain against the false apostles.

a He sheweth who is the author of the minister generally; for in this the whole ministry agreeth, that whether they be Apostles, or Shepherds, or Doctors, they are appointed of God.

b He toucheth the instrumental cause; for this is a peculiar prerogative to the Apostles, to be called immediately from Christ.

c Christ no doubt is man, but he is God also, and head of the Church, and in this respect to be exempted out of the number of men.

2 The sum of the true Gospel is this, that Christ by his only offering, saveth us being chosen out from the world, by the free decree of God the Father.

d Out of that most corrupt state which is without Christ.
