They will be strong like trees planted near a stream
    that send out roots to the water.
They have nothing to fear when the days get hot.
    Their leaves are always green.
They never worry, even in a year that has no rain.
    They always produce fruit.

“Nothing can hide its evil as well as the human mind.
    It can be very sick,
    and no one really understands it.
10 But I am the Lord,
    and I can look into a person’s heart.
I can test a person’s mind and decide what each one should have.
    I can give each person the right payment for what they do.

They will be like a tree planted by the water
    that sends out its roots by the stream.(A)

    and beyond cure.

    and examine the mind,(F)
to reward(G) each person according to their conduct,
    according to what their deeds deserve.”(H)
