|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 Best of all, they went beyond our highest hopes, for their first action was to dedicate themselves to the Lord and to us for whatever directions God might give them.
5 And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will.
