Galatians 1:13-24:

[13]  For you have heard of my former life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it. 

[14]  And I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers. 

[15]  But when he who had set me apart before I was born,[d] and who called me by his grace, 

[16]  was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with anyone; 

[17]  nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia, and returned again to Damascus.

[18]  Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas and remained with him fifteen days. 

[19]  But I saw none of the other apostles except James the Lord’s brother. 

[20]  (In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!) 

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

[22]  And I was still unknown in person to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. 

[23]  They only were hearing it said, “He who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” 

[24]  And they glorified God because of me.
