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.
