To the beloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth:
2Beloved, I pray that in every way you may prosper and enjoy good health, as your soul also prospers.
3For I was overjoyed when the brothers came and testified about your devotion to the truth, in which you continue to walk.
4I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.
5Beloved, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers, and especially since they are strangers to you.
6They have testified to the church about your love. You will do well to send them on their way in a manner worthy of God.
7For they went out on behalf of the Name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles.
8Therefore we ought to support such men, so that we may be fellow workers for the truth.
