Jeremiah 17:5-7 Lexham English Bible (LEB)
The One Who Trusts in Humankind Contrasted With the One Who Trusts in Yahweh
5 Thus says Yahweh,
“Cursed is the person who trusts in humankind
and makes flesh his strength,
and turns aside his heart from Yahweh.
6 And he will be like a juniper in the wilderness,
and he will not see when good comes,
and he will dwell in the parched places in the desert,
in a land of salt flats, where no one lives.
7 Blessed be the person who trusts in Yahweh,
and Yahweh is his trust.
