Galatians 1:13-15 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
13 You have heard how I lived while I was still under the law of the Jews. I troubled the church of God very much. And I even tried to stop the church people altogether.
14 I knew more about the law of the Jews than many of my own age among my people. I wanted much more than they did to obey the laws which our fathers passed down to us, even the ones that were not written.
15 But God chose me to be an apostle before I was born. And he called me by his love.
