“aCursed is the man who trusts in mankind
And whose heart turns away from the Lord.
6 “For he will be like a abush in the desert
And will not see when prosperity comes,
But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness,
7 “aBlessed is the man who trusts in the Lord
And whose btrust is the Lord.
8 “For he will be like a atree planted by the water,
That extends its roots by a stream
And will not fear when the heat comes;
But its leaves will be green,
And it will not be anxious in a year of bdrought
Nor cease to yield fruit.
