Jeremiah 17:5-9 CEB

5 The LORD proclaims: Cursed are those who trust in mere humans, who depend on human strength and turn their hearts from the LORD.
6 They will be like a desert shrub that doesn't know when relief comes. They will live in the parched places of the wilderness, in a barren land where no one survives.
7 Happy are those who trust in the LORD, who rely on the LORD.
8 They will be like trees planted by the streams, whose roots reach down to the water. They won't fear drought when it comes; their leaves will remain green. They won't be stressed in the time of drought or fail to bear fruit.
9 The most cunning heart— it's beyond help. Who can figure it out?
