Psalms 49


49:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. 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 my ear to a parable: I will open my dark
 saying upon the harp.
49:5 Why should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the iniquity
 of my heels shall encompass 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
 corruption.
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 honor 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 thyself.
49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall
 never see light.
49:20 Man [that is] in honor, and understandeth not, is like the
 beasts [that] perish.
