Book of Psalms
Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye
inhabitants of the world:
49:2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the
meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
49:4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will
open my dark saying upon the harp.
49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil,
when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me
49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast
themselves in the multitude of their riches;
49:7 None of them can by any means redeem his
brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
49:8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious,
and it ceaseth for ever:)
49:9 That he should still live for ever, and not see
49:10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the
fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their
wealth to others.
49:11 Their inward thought is, that their houses
shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places
to all generations; they call their lands after
their own names.
49:12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not:
he is like the beasts that perish.
49:13 This their way is their folly: yet their
posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
49:14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death
shall feed on them; and the upright shall have
dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty
shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of
the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when
the glory of his house is increased;
49:17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away:
his glory shall not descend after him.
49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and
men will praise thee, when thou doest well to
49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers;
they shall never see light.
49:20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not,
is like the beasts that perish.
