Psalms Chapter 49   
   King James Version

     1  Hear this, all [ye] people; give ear, all [ye] inhabitants of the world: [gsn] [jfb]   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. [jfb] [jwc]   5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about? [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   7 None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: [jfb] [jwc]   8 (For the redemption of their soul [is] precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   9 That he should still live for ever, [and] not see corruption. [jfb]   10 For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   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. [jfb] [jwc]   12 Nevertheless man [being] in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts [that] perish. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   13 This their way [is] their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah. [jfb] [jwc]   16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; [jfb] [jwc]   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. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light. [gsn] [jwc]   20 Man [that is] in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]
