Jeremiah 17:5-7 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

The One Who Trusts in Humankind Contrasted With the One Who Trusts in Yahweh

Thus says Yahweh,

“Cursed is the person who trusts in humankind
    and makes flesh his strength,[a]
    and turns aside his heart from Yahweh.
And he will be like a juniper in the wilderness,[b]
    and he will not see when good comes,
and he will dwell in the parched places in the desert,[c]
    in a land of salt flats,[d] where no one lives.
Blessed be the person who trusts in Yahweh,
    and Yahweh is his trust.
