Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
3 I was overjoyed when the brothers and sisters arrived and spoke highly of your faithfulness to the truth, shown by how you live according to the truth. 3 It gave me great joy to have some brothers come and tell about your faithfulness to the truth and how you continue to walk in the truth.
4 I have no greater joy than this: to hear that my children are living according to the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
5 Dear friend, you act faithfully in whatever you do for our brothers and sisters, even though they are strangers. 5 Dear friend, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers, even though they are strangers to you.
6 They spoke highly of your love in front of the church. You all would do well to provide for their journey in a way that honors God, 6 They have told the church about your love. You will do well to send them on their way in a manner worthy of God.
7 because they left on their journey for the sake of Jesus Christ without accepting any support from the Gentiles. 7 It was for the sake of the Name that they went out, receiving no help from the pagans.
8 Therefore, we ought to help people like this so that we can be coworkers with the truth. 8 We ought therefore to show hospitality to such men so that we may work together for the truth.
