You've probably had an answer to this one by the time I can get this
posted, but nevertheless:

At the very least this first plural pronoun must refer to the Galatian
congregation and the author, Paul himself. It is surely not a rhetorical 1
plural = "me." I think the reasonable surmise here is that it refers to
believers, specifically to the "faith-justified" in the sense clarified by
Paul in this letter (and also, of course,in Romans).
