What I am trying to do is pull rows from one table but I need data selected from another table as it goes through each result.

Message Table:
---------------------------
messageFromUserID
messageToUserID

Users Table:
------------------
userID
userName

Objective: Selecting 2 different usernames for each result from the users table based on the message tables ids: messageFromUserID and messageToUserID.

So as each result is being pulled I want it to show the usernames with the data. This needs to be done in one query that is what I am trying to do.
