Curse and Blessing

This is what the Lord says:

Cursed is the person who trusts in mankind.(A)
He makes human flesh his strength,(B)
and his heart turns from the Lord.
He will be like a juniper in the Arabah;(C)

The person who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence indeed is the Lord, is blessed.(E)

    whose confidence is in him.
