5 This is what Jehovah says:
“Cursed is the man* who puts his trust in mere humans,+
Who relies on human power,*+
And whose heart turns away from Jehovah.
6 He will become like a solitary tree in the desert.
He will not see when good comes,
But he will reside in parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land where no one can live.
7 Blessed is the man* who puts his trust in Jehovah,
Whose confidence is in Jehovah.+
8 He will become like a tree planted by the waters,
That sends out its roots to the stream.
He will not notice when heat comes,
But his leaves will always flourish.+
And in the year of drought he will not be anxious,
Nor will he quit producing fruit.
