Psalm 49

49:1 To the chiefe Musician, a Psalme for the sonnes of Korah. Heare this, all yee people, giue eare all yee inhabitants of the world: 49:2 Both low, and high, rich and poore together. 49:3 My mouth shall speake of wisedome: and the meditation of my heart shalbe of vnderstanding. 49:4 I will incline mine eare to a parable; I will open my darke saying vpon the harpe. 49:5 Wherefore should I feare in the daies of euill, when the iniquitie of my heeles shall compasse me about 49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselues in the multitude of their riches: 49:7 None of them can by any meanes redeeme his brother, nor giue to God a ransome for him: 49:8 (For the redemption of their soule is precious, and it ceaseth for euer.) 49:9 That he should still liue for euer, and not see corruption. 49:10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the foole, and the brutish person perish, and leaue their wealth to others. 49:11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for euer, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their owne names. 49:12 Neuerthelesse man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beastes that perish. 49:13 This their way is their follie; yet their posteritie approue their sayings. Selah. 49:14 Like sheepe they are layd in the graue, death shall feede on them; and the vpright shall haue dominion ouer them in the morning, and their beauty shall consume in the graue, from their dwelling. 49:15 But God will redeeme my soule from the power of the graue; for he shall receiue me. Selah. 49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made 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 whiles he liued, he blessed his soule: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thy selfe. 49:19 Hee shall goe to the generation of his fathers, they shall neuer see light. 49:20 Man that is in honour and vnderstandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
