New American Standard Bible
5 Thus says the Lord,
“(A)Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind
And makes (B)flesh his [a]strength,
And whose heart turns away from the Lord.
6 “For he will be like a (C)bush in the desert
And will not see when prosperity comes,
But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness,
A (D)land of salt [b]without inhabitant.
7 “(E)Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord
And whose (F)trust is the Lord.
New International Version
5 This is what the Lord says:
“Cursed is the one who trusts in man,(A)
who draws strength from mere flesh
and whose heart turns away from the Lord.(B)
6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
they will not see prosperity when it comes.
They will dwell in the parched places(C) of the desert,
in a salt(D) land where no one lives.
