Authorized (King James) Version
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.
New International Version
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.(A)
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought(B)
and never fails to bear fruit.”(C)
9 The heart(D) is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?
