019:049:001
Hear this,
all ye people;
give ear,
all ye inhabitants of the world:


019:049:002
Both low and high,
rich and poor,
together.


019:049:003
My mouth shall speak of wisdom;
and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.


019:049:004
I will incline mine ear to a parable:
I will open my dark saying upon the harp.


019:049:005
Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil,
when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?


019:049:006
They that trust in their wealth,
and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;


019:049:007
None of them can by any means redeem his brother,
nor give to God a ransom for him:


019:049:008
(For the redemption of their soul is precious,
and it ceaseth for ever:)


019:049:009
That he should still live for ever,
and not see corruption.


019:049:010
For he seeth that wise men die,
likewise the fool and the brutish person perish,
and leave their wealth to others.


019:049:011
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.


019:049:012
Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not:
he is like the beasts that perish.


019:049:013
This their way is their folly:
yet their posterity approve their sayings.
Selah.


019:049:014
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.


019:049:015
But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave:
for he shall receive me.
Selah.


019:049:016
Be not thou afraid when one is made rich,
when the glory of his house is increased;


019:049:017
For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away:
his glory shall not descend after him.


019:049:018
Though while he lived he blessed his soul:
and men will praise thee,
when thou doest well to thyself.


019:049:019
He shall go to the generation of his fathers;
they shall never see light.


019:049:020
Man that is in honour,
and understandeth not,
is like the beasts that perish.
