Context
NET ©

And they did this not just as we had hoped, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and to us by the will of God.

NIV ©

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.

NASB ©

and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.

NLT ©

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.

MSG ©

This was totally spontaneous, entirely their own idea, and caught us completely off guard. What explains it was that they had first given themselves unreservedly to God and to us. The other giving simply flowed out of the purposes of God working in their lives.

BBE ©

And going even farther than our hope, they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us after the purpose of God.

NRSV ©

and this, not merely as we expected; they gave themselves first to the Lord and, by the will of God, to us,

NKJV ©

And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God.
