New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
7 "But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. 7 "But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
8 They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they go right on producing delicious fruit." 8 He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."
