4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

7 Because that for his name's sake they went forth , taking nothing of the Gentiles. 7 It was for the sake of the Name that they went out, receiving no help from the pagans.
