Jeremiah 17:5-7 New Life Version (NLV)
5 The Lord says, “Cursed is the man who trusts in man, who trusts in the flesh for his strength, and whose heart turns away from the Lord. 6 For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when good comes. He will live in dry wastes in the desert, in a land of salt where no other people live. 7 Good will come to the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord.
