Jeremiah 17:5 - 17:8

5 Thus says Yahweh,
“Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind
And makes flesh his strength,
And whose heart turns away from Yahweh.
And he will be like a juniper in the desert
And will not see when prosperity comes,
But will dwell in stony wastes in the wilderness,
A land of salt which is not inhabited.
Blessed is the man who trusts in Yahweh
And whose trust is Yahweh.
And he will be like a tree planted by the water,
That sends forth 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 drought
Nor refrain from yielding fruit.
