Chapter 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: 

 

 


2

 

 Both low and high, rich and poor, together. 

 

 


3

 

 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart [shall be] of understanding. 

 

 


4

 

 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp. 

 

 


5

 

 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about? 

 

 


6

 

 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; 

 

 


7

 

 None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: 

 

 


8

 

 (For the redemption of their soul [is] precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) 

 

 


9

 

 That he should still live for ever, [and] not see corruption. 

 

 


10

 

 For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. 

 

 


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. 

 

 


12

 

 Nevertheless man [being] in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts [that] perish. 

 

 


13

 

 This their way [is] their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah. 

 

 


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. 

 

 


15

 

 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah. 

 

 


16

 

 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; 

 

 


17

 

 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. 

 

 


18

 

 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and [men] will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself. 

 

 


19

 

 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light. 

 

 


20

 

 Man [that is] in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish.
