replacing gas shut off valve

My 1/2" shut off gas valve that feeds my water heater is leaking-(soap bubbles)- it's old and needs to be replaced- If I just replace the valve- do i need to replace the black iron pipes that feed into it? Below the valve is a union- then above the valve is another foot long piece that goes into an elbow

Not necessarily if you put everything back together and their are no leaks you should be fine. Clean the threads of whatever you disconnect and apply thread compound and you should be ok.
