Trustworthy is the Word, for if at sometime in the past we have died together with him, we also will live together with him. If we are persevering now, we also will reign together with him. If we deny him in the future, he also will deny us. If we are being unfaithful, he will remain faithful—for he is not able to contradict (disavow or abnegate) himself.
Italics indicate words added to the Greek text as part of the translator's interpretation. "Him" seems to be necessary to connect the Greek "hymn" or "poem" with "in Christ Jesus" in verse 10.
