33. Blessed is the Man

(Jeremiah 17:7-8)


Blessed is the man who puts his trust in Jehovah

And whose trust Jehovah is.

Blessed is the man who puts his trust in Jehovah

And whose trust Jehovah is.


For he will be like a tree that has been planted by a stream,

And stretches forth its roots to drink the water,

Not afraid of the heat.

A tree whose leaves remain flourishing,

And in the time of drought

Is never anxious,

And will always bear fruit.


BENDITO EL HOMBRE

(Jeremías 17:7-8)


Bendito el hombre que confia en el Señor,

Y cuya esperanza es el Señor.

Bendito el hombre que confia en el Señor,

Y cuya esperanza es el Señor.


Porque será como el árbol plantado junto as aguas,

Que junto a las corrientes echará sus raices,

Sin sentir el calor.

Sino que su hoja estará verde,

Y en el año de sequía

No se fatigará,

Ni dejará de dar frutos.
