Jeremiah 17:8-10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,
and that spreadeth out her roots by the river,
and shall not see when heat cometh,
but her leaf shall be green;
and shall not be careful in the year of drought,
neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
9 The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins,
even to give every man according to his ways,
and according to the fruit of his doings.
Jeremiah 17:8-10 New International Version (NIV)
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
9 The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?
10 “I the Lord search the heart
and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
according to what their deeds deserve.”
