Jeremiah 17:5-7 New Century Version (NCV)
Trusting in Humans or God
5 This is what the Lord says:
“A curse is placed on those who trust other people,
who depend on humans for strength,
who have stopped trusting the Lord.
6 They are like a bush in a desert
that grows in a land where no one lives,
a hot and dry land with bad soil.
They don’t know about the good things God can give.
7 “But the person who trusts in the Lord will be blessed.
The Lord will show him that he can be trusted.
