it sends its roots out toward a stream,
it doesn’t fear when heat comes,
and its foliage remains green.
It will not worry in a year of drought
or cease producing fruit.

and incurable—who can understand it?

I test the heart
to give to each according to his way,
according to what his actions deserve.
