Jeremiah 17:8-10 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

He will be strong, like a tree planted near water.
    That tree has large roots that find the water.
It is not afraid when the days are hot.
    Its leaves are always green.
It does not worry in a year when no rain comes.
    That tree always produces fruit.”

“More than anything else, a person’s mind is evil.
    It cannot be healed.
    Who can understand it?
10 But I am the Lord, and I can look into a person’s heart.
    I can test a person’s mind.
So I can decide what each one deserves.
    I can give each one the right payment for what he does.”

Jeremiah 17:8-10 New International Version (NIV)

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.”

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.”
