Young's Literal Translation
And he hath been as a naked thing in a desert, And doth not see when good cometh, And hath inhabited parched places in a wilderness, A salt land, and not inhabited.
Jeremiah 17:6 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Be shall be like the heath in the desert - כערער kearar; or, like a blasted tree, without moisture, parched and withered.
Shall not see when good cometh - Shall not be sensible of it: the previous drought having rendered it incapable of absorbing any more vegetable juices.
A salt land - Barren; and therefore unfit to be inhabited.
