Psalm 49

    For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
Psalm 49:1   Hear this, all ye peoples; Give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world,
Psalm 49:2   Both low and high, Rich and poor together.
Psalm 49:3   My mouth shall speak wisdom; And the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
Psalm 49:4   I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
Psalm 49:5   Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, When iniquity at my heels compasseth me about?
Psalm 49:6   They that trust in their wealth, And boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
Psalm 49:7   None of them can by any means redeem his brother, Nor give to God a ransom for him;
Psalm 49:8   (For the redemption of their life is costly, And it faileth for ever;)
Psalm 49:9   That he should still live alway, That he should not see corruption.
Psalm 49:10   For he shall see it. Wise men die; The fool and the brutish alike perish, And leave their wealth to others.
Psalm 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.
Psalm 49:12   But man being in honor abideth not: He is like the beasts that perish.
Psalm 49:13   This their way is their folly: Yet after them men approve their sayings. Selah
Psalm 49:14   They are appointed as a flock for Sheol; Death shall be their shepherd; And the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; And their beauty shall be for Sheol to consume, That there be no habitation for it.
Psalm 49:15   But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol; For he will receive me. Selah
Psalm 49:16   Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, When the glory of his house is increased.
Psalm 49:17   For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away; His glory shall not descend after him.
Psalm 49:18   Though while he lived he blessed his soul (And men praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself,)
Psalm 49:19   He shall go to the generation of his fathers; They shall never see the light.
Psalm 49:20   Man that is in honor, and understandeth not, Is like the beasts that perish.
