Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
8 He is like a tree planted by water,
that sends out its roots by the stream,
and does not fear when heat comes,
for its leaves remain green,
and is not anxious in the year of drought,
for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
9 The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately corrupt;
who can understand it?
10 “I the Lord search the mind
and try the heart,
to give every man according to his ways,
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?
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.Read full chapter
