They will be like trees
    growing beside a stream—
trees with roots that reach
    down to the water,
and with leaves
    that are always green.
They bear fruit every year
and are never worried
    by a lack of rain.

You people of Judah
    are so deceitful
that you even fool yourselves,
    and you can’t change.
10 But I know your deeds
    and your thoughts,
and I will make sure
    you get what you deserve.

    and never fails to bear fruit.”(C)

The heart(D) is deceitful above all things
    and beyond cure.
    Who can understand it?

10 “I the Lord search the heart(E)
    and examine the mind,(F)
to reward(G) each person according to their conduct,
    according to what their deeds deserve.”(H)
