Hear this, all you peoples;

Tools specific to Psa 49:2

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:2

both low and high,

rich and poor together.

Tools specific to Psa 49:3

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:3

My mouth speaks wisdom;

my heart’s meditation brings understanding.

Tools specific to Psa 49:4

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:4

I turn my ear to a proverb;

I explain my riddle with a lyre.

Tools specific to Psa 49:5

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:5

Why should I fear in times of trouble?

The iniquity of my foes surrounds me.

Tools specific to Psa 49:6

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:6

They trust in their wealth

and boast of their abundant riches.

Tools specific to Psa 49:7

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:7

Yet these cannot redeem a person

or pay his ransom to God —

Tools specific to Psa 49:8

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:8

since the price of redeeming him is too costly,

one should forever stop trying —

Tools specific to Psa 49:9

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:9

so that he may live forever

and not see the Pit.

Tools specific to Psa 49:10

the foolish and stupid also pass away.

Then they leave their wealth to others.

though they have named estates after themselves.

But despite his assets, mankind will not last;

This is the way of those who are arrogant,

and of their followers,

who approve of their words.Selah

Tools specific to Psa 49:14

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:14

Like sheep they are headed for Sheol;

Death will shepherd them.

The upright will rule over them in the morning,

and their form will waste away in Sheol,

far from their lofty abode.

Tools specific to Psa 49:15

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:15

But God will redeem me

from the power of Sheol,

for he will take me.Selah

Tools specific to Psa 49:16

Do not be afraid when a person gets rich,

when the wealth of his house increases.

Tools specific to Psa 49:17

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:17

For when he dies, he will take nothing at all;

his wealth will not follow him down.

Tools specific to Psa 49:18

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:18

Though he blesses himself during his lifetime —

and you are acclaimed when you do well for yourself —

Tools specific to Psa 49:19

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:19

he will go to the generation of his fathers;

they will never see the light.

Tools specific to Psa 49:20

Unchecked Copy Box Psa 49:20

Mankind, with his assets

but without understanding,

is like the animals that perish.
