3 What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness?

Present day/my translation:  What if some of us don't have faith in God????  Because of their lack of faith in Him, will this make our Creator, Lord and Savior any less faithful to those who lack in this quality????

4 Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written:
   "So that you may be proved right when you speak
      and prevail when you judge." 
(see Psalm 51 verse 4)

Present day/my translation to question above:  "No, God is what He is...true to His Word, faithful to His Word.  Man is not always the same, not faithful to God's Word or faithful, in general to God or mankind because of the nature of the beast; because of our lineage of sin and disobedience.  Sometimes we do not mean to think a certain thought in a negative manner, but it happens and we will keep on doing it through the course of our life.  

These human actions are manifested to prove God's righteousness and not only His faithfulness to us in correcting us as a father or parent would, but also to prove that His judgment is fair, just, everlasting, ever faithful and loving for our own good.  "Love never fails."

Psalm 51:4
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
       and done what is evil in your sight, 

       so that you are proved right when you speak
       and justified when you judge. 

9 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.
