Jeremiah 17:9 - 17:11

“The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick;
Who can know it?
I, Yahweh, search the heart;
I test the inmost being,
Even to give to each man according to his ways,
According to the fruit of his deeds.
As a partridge that hatches eggs which it has not laid,
So is he who makes a fortune, but unjustly;
In the midst of his days it will forsake him,
And in the end he will be a wicked fool.”
