Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save.
King James Bible
Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
American Standard Version
Put not your trust in princes, Nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
Young's Literal Translation
Trust not in princes -- in a son of man, For he hath no deliverance.
Psalm 146:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Put not your trust in princes - This may refer, as has been stated above, to Cyrus, who had revoked his edict for the rebuilding of Jerusalem. Perhaps they had begun to suppose that they were about to owe their deliverance to the Persian king. God permitted this change in the disposition of the king, to teach them the vanity of confidence in men, and the necessity of trusting in himself.
