5 Thus says the Lord,

aCursed is the man who trusts in mankind

And makes bflesh his 1strength,

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,

A bland of salt 1without inhabitant.

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.
