Jeremiah 17:7-8

The Sin of Judah

7 "Blessed l is the man who trusts in the LORD,
And whose hope is the LORD.
8 For he shall be m like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not 1 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.
