“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
and makes flesh his arm,
whose heart turns away from the Lord.
and shall not see any good come.
He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.
whose trust is the Lord.
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
