3 I was overjoyed when some of the friends arrived and testified to your faithfulness to the truth, namely how you walk in 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 walking in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
5 Beloved, you do faithfully whatever you do for the friends, even though they are strangers to you; 5 Dear friend, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers, even though they are strangers to you.
6 they have testified to your love before the church. You will do well to send them on in a manner worthy of 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 for they began their journey for the sake of Christ, accepting no support from non-believers. 7 It was for the sake of the Name that they went out, receiving no help from the pagans.
8 Therefore we ought to support such people, so that we may become co-workers with the truth. 8 We ought therefore to show hospitality to such men so that we may work together for the truth.
