They are like a ·bush [shrub; or juniper] in a ·desert [steppe] that ·grows in a land where no one lives [L lives in a salt land where no one lives], a ·hot and dry land with bad soil [L parched land in the wilderness]. They don’t ·know about the good things God can give [L see when good comes].
God’s Message: “Cursed is the strong one who depends on mere humans, Who thinks he can make it on muscle alone and sets God aside as dead weight. He’s like a tumbleweed on the prairie, out of touch with the good earth. He lives rootless and aimless in a land where nothing grows.
For he shall be as brooms in desert, and he shall not see, when good shall come; but he shall dwell in dryness in desert, in the land of saltness, and unhabitable. (For he shall be like the heather in the wilderness, and he shall not see, when good shall come; but he shall live in the dryness of the desert, yea, in an uninhabitable and salty land.)
