Jeremiah 17:5-9 (Bible in Basic English)

View In My Bible
5 This is what the Lord has said: Cursed is the man who puts his faith in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart is turned away from the Lord. 6 For he will be like the brushwood in the upland, and will not see when good comes; but his living-place will be in the dry places in the waste land, in a salt and unpeopled land. 7 A blessing is on the man who puts his faith in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. 8 For he will be like a tree planted by the waters, pushing out its roots by the stream; he will have no fear when the heat comes, but his leaf will be green; in a dry year he will have no care, and will go on giving fruit. 9 The heart is a twisted thing, not to be searched out by man: who is able to have knowledge of it?
