It is better to have faith in the Lord than to put one’s hope in man.
Far better to take refuge in GOD than trust in people;
[It is] better to trust in the LORD Than to put confidence in man.
[It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
It is better to depend on the LORD than to trust mortals.
It is better to take shelter* in the Lord than to trust in people.
