Blessed is the man that trusts in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
All Commentaries on Jeremiah 17:7 Go To Jeremiah 17
Augustine of Hippo
“They shall not be ashamed in the evil time.” In the day of trouble, in the day of distress, they shall not be “ashamed,” as one is ashamed whose hope deceives him. Who is the person who is “ashamed”? The one who says, “I have not found that which I was in hope of.” Nor undeservedly either. You hoped for it from yourself or from a person, your friend. But “cursed is one who puts his trust in humankind.” You are ashamed because your hope has deceived you; your hope that was based on a lie.
