NCV translates as “What I say is true”    MSG    “count on this”  or   “depend on this”


2 Tim 3:16 says            “All Scriptures are God-breathed  Inspired word of God So really all scripture is Trustworthy and Reliable

Heb 10:12          But after Christ offered one sacrifice for sins, forever,  he sat down at the right side of God. … 14           With one sacrifice he made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

1 Cor 1:30   God has united you with Christ Jesus.  For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself.  Christ made us right with God;  he made us pure and holy,  and he freed us from sin.
