Jeremiah 17:5-9 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
5 Thus says the LORD, "1Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes 2flesh his astrength, And whose heart turns away from the LORD. 6 "For he will be like a 3bush in the desert And will not see when prosperity comes, But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, A 4land of salt bwithout inhabitant. 7 "5Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose 6trust is the LORD. 8 "For he will be like a 7tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes ; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of 8drought Nor cease to yield fruit. 9 "The 9heart is more 10deceitful than all else And is desperately 11sick ; Who can understand it?
