Footnotes

  1. 2 Timothy 2:11 The fourth admonition: we ought not to contend upon words and questions, which are not only unprofitable, but also for the most part hurtful: but rather upon this, how we may frame ourselves to all manner of patience, and to die also with Christ (that is to say, for Christ’s Name) because that is the plain way to the most glorious life: as contrariwise the falling away of men can diminish no part of the truth of God, although by such means, they procure most certain destruction to themselves.
  2. 2 Timothy 2:11 If we be afflicted with Christ, and for Christ’s sake.

11 Here is a trustworthy saying:(A)

If we died with him,
    we will also live with him;(B)
12 if we endure,
    we will also reign with him.(C)
If we disown him,
    he will also disown us;(D)
13 if we are faithless,
    he remains faithful,(E)
    for he cannot disown himself.
