Jer 17:5 Thus said יהוה
, "Cursed is
the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart turns away from
17:6 "For he
shall be like a shrub in the desert, and not see when good comes, and shall inhabit the parched places in
the wilderness, a salt land that is not inhabited.
17:7 "Blessed is the man who
trusts in יהוה , and whose trust is יהוה .
17:8 "For he
shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and does not see
when heat comes. And his leaf shall be green, and in the year of drought he is not anxious, nor does he
cease from yielding fruit.
17:9 The heart is crooked above all, and desperately sick –
who shall know it?
Shalom and Be Blessed.
