Amid echoes of the first psalm, we are reassured that our confidence in the LORD is not misplaced.

BibleGateway: Jeremiah 17:5-8

ESV Text: Jeremiah 17:5-8

KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 17

     5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.(KJV)
