Galatians 1:3-9 ALT
(3) Grace to you* and peace from God [the] Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, (4) the One having given Himself for our sins, in order that He should deliver us out of the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, (5) to whom [be] the glory into the ages of the ages [fig., forever and ever]! So be it! (6) I marvel [or, am amazed] that you* are so quickly turning away [or, apostatizing] from the One having called you* in [or, by] the grace of Christ to a different gospel, (7) which is not another [Gospel], except there are some, the ones having disturbed you* and desiring to distort the Gospel of Christ. (8) _But_ even if we or an angel out of heaven shall himself be proclaiming a gospel to you* besides [or, contrary to] what we proclaimed to you*, let him be accursed [Gr., anathema]! (9) As we have forewarned and now say again, if anyone shall be proclaiming a gospel to you* besides [or, contrary to] what you* received, let him be accursed!

Galatians 1:3-9 NWT
3 May you have undeserved kindness and peace from God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ. 4 He gave himself for our sins that he might deliver us from the present wicked system of things according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. 6 I marvel that you are being so quickly removed from the One who called you with Christ's undeserved kindness over to another sort of good news. 7 But it is not another; only there are certain ones who are causing you trouble and wanting to pervert the good news about the Christ. 8 However, even if we or an angel out of heaven were to declare to you as good news something beyond what we declared to you as good news, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said above, I also now say again, Whoever it is that is declaring to you as good news something beyond what you accepted, let him be accursed.

Galatians 1:3-9 BBE
(3) Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, (4) Who gave himself for our sins, so that he might make us free from this present evil world, after the purpose of our God and Father: (5) To whom be the glory for ever and ever. So be it. (6) I am surprised that you are being so quickly turned away from him whose word came to you in the grace of Christ, to good news of a different sort; (7) Which is not another sort: only there are some who give you trouble, desiring to make changes in the good news of Christ. (8) But even if we, or an angel from heaven, were to be a preacher to you of good news other than that which we have given you, let there be a curse on him. (9) As we have said before, so say I now again, If any man is a preacher to you of any good news other than that which has been given to you, let there be a curse on him.

Galatians 1:3-9 CEV
(3) I pray that God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ will be kind to you and will bless you with peace! (4) Christ obeyed God our Father and gave himself as a sacrifice for our sins to rescue us from this evil world. (5) God will be given glory forever and ever. Amen. (6) I am shocked that you have so quickly turned from God, who chose you because of his wonderful kindness. You have believed another message, (7) when there is really only one true message. But some people are causing you trouble and want to make you turn away from the good news about Christ. (8) I pray that God will punish anyone who preaches anything different from our message to you! It doesn't matter if that person is one of us or an angel from heaven. (9) I have said it before, and I will say it again. I hope God will punish anyone who preaches anything different from what you have already believed.

Galatians 1:3-9 ESV
(3) Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, (4) who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, (5) to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (6) I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel-- (7) not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. (8) But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. (9) As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.
