5 Thus says the Lord: g“Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes hflesh his 2strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord. 6 For he shall be ilike a shrub in the desert, And jshall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, kIn a salt land which is not inhabited. 7 “Blessed lis the man who trusts in the Lord, And whose hope is the Lord.
