Psalms 146:3-5

3 a  Put not your trust in princes,
b  in a son of man, in whom there is c  no salvation.
4When d  his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
5 e  Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose f  hope is in the  Lord his God,

Jeremiah 17:5

5 Thus says the  Lord:
Cursed is the man g  who trusts in man
and makes flesh his strength,
Hebrew arm

whose heart turns away from the  Lord.

Lamentations 4:17

17 i  Our eyes failed, ever watching
j  vainly for help;
in our watching we watched
for k  a nation which could not save.

Hosea 14:3

3 l  Assyria shall not save us;
m  we will not ride on horses;
and n  we will say no more, ‘Our God,’
to the work of our hands.
o  In you the orphan finds mercy.”
