5 Thus says YHWH:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
And makes flesh his strength,
Whose heart departs from YHWH.
6 For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,
And shall not see when good comes,
But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land which is not inhabited.
7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in YHWH,
And whose hope is YHWH.
8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
Time to ask oneself what is man made that we all are (or have) followed which would cause us to depart from YHWH? Something which has been shown to us, but which most reject?
I say most as the scripture also tells us of some which follow YHWH.
