Galatians 1:14-16 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
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.
16 God wanted to show his Son to me so that I might tell people who are not Jews about him. I did not go and ask any other person about the good news.
