Psalms 49

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] [55] [56] [57] [58] [59] [60] [61] [62] [63] [64] [65] [66] [67] [68] [69] [70] [71] [72] [73] [74] [75] [76] [77] [78] [79] [80] [81] [82] [83] [84] [85] [86] [87] [88] [89] [90] [91] [92] [93] [94] [95] [96] [97] [98] [99] [100] [101] [102] [103] [104] [105] [106] [107] [108] [109] [110] [111] [112] [113] [114] [115] [116] [117] [118] [119] [120] [121] [122] [123] [124] [125] [126] [127] [128] [129] [130] [131] [132] [133] [134] [135] [136] [137] [138] [139] [140] [141] [142] [143] [144] [145] [146] [147] [148] [149] [150]

49:1 <> Hear this, all you peoples. Listen, all you inhabitants of the world,

49:2 both low and high, rich and poor together.

49:3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom. My heart shall utter understanding.

49:4 I will incline my ear to a proverb. I will open my riddle on the harp.

49:5 Why should I fear in the days of evil, when iniquity at my heels surrounds me?

49:6 Those who trust in their wealth, and boast in the multitude of their riches--

49:7 none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give God a ransom for him.

49:8 For the redemption of their life is costly, no payment is ever enough,

49:9 That he should live on forever, that he should not see corruption.

49:10 For he sees that wise men die; likewise the fool and the senseless perish, and leave their wealth to others.

49:11 Their inward thought is that their houses will endure forever, and their dwelling places to all generations. They name their lands after themselves.

49:12 But man, despite his riches, doesn't endure. He is like the animals that perish.

49:13 This is the destiny of those who are foolish, and of those who approve their sayings. Selah.

49:14 They are appointed as a flock for Sheol. Death shall be their shepherd. The upright shall have dominion over them in the morning. Their beauty shall decay in Sheol, far from their mansion.

49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol, for he will receive me. Selah.

49:16 Don't be afraid when a man is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased.

49:17 For when he dies he shall carry nothing away. His glory shall not descend after him.

49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul-- and men praise you when you do well for yourself--

49:19 he shall go to the generation of his fathers. They shall never see the light.

49:20 A man who has riches without understanding, is like the animals that perish.
