49:1 {To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.} Hear this, all ye peoples; give ear, all inhabitants of the world:

49:2 Both men of low and men of high degree, rich and poor alike.

49:3 My mouth shall speak 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 riddle upon the harp.

49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of adversity, [when] the iniquity of my supplanters encompasseth me? --

49:6 They depend upon their wealth, and boast themselves in the abundance of their riches. ...

49:7 None can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him,

49:8 (For the redemption of their soul is costly, and must be given up for ever,)

49:9 That he should still live perpetually, [and] not see corruption.

49:10 For he seeth that wise men die; all alike, the fool and the brutish perish, and they leave their wealth to others.

49:11 Their inward thought is, that their houses are for ever,their dwelling-places from generation to generation: they call the 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 they that come after them delight in their sayings. Selah.

49:14 Like sheep are they laid in Sheol: Death feedeth on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their comeliness shall be for Sheol to consume, that there be no habitation for them.

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

49:16 Be not afraid when a man becometh 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 he blessed his soul in his lifetime, -- and men will praise thee when thou doest well to thyself, --

49:19 It 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.
