49:1 <Alamoth. To the chief music-maker. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.> Give attention to this, all you peoples; let your ears be open, all you who are living in the world.

49:2 High and low together, the poor, and those who have wealth.

49:3 From my mouth will come words of wisdom; and in the thoughts of my heart will be knowledge.

49:4 I will put my teaching into a story; I will make my dark sayings clear with music.

49:5 What cause have I for fear in the days of evil, when the evil-doing of those who are working for my downfall is round about me?

49:6 Even of those whose faith is in their wealth, and whose hearts are lifted up because of their stores.

49:7 Truly, no man may get back his soul for a price, or give to God the payment for himself;

49:8 (Because it takes a great price to keep his soul from death, and man is not able to give it.)

49:9 So that he might have eternal life, and never see the underworld.

49:10 For he sees that wise men come to their end, and foolish persons of low behaviour come to destruction together, letting their wealth go to others.

49:11 The place of the dead is their house for ever, and their resting-place through all generations; those who come after them give their names to their lands.

49:12 But man, like the animals, does not go on for ever; he comes to an end like the beasts.

49:13 This is the way of the foolish; their silver is for those who come after them, and their children get the pleasure of their gold. (Selah.)

49:14 Death will give them their food like sheep; the underworld is their fate and they will go down into it; their flesh is food for worms; their form is wasted away; the underworld is their resting-place for ever.

49:15 But God will get back my soul; for he will take me from the power of death. (Selah.)

49:16 Have no fear when wealth comes to a man, and the glory of his house is increased;

49:17 For at his death, he will take nothing away; his glory will not go down after him.

49:18 Though he might have pride in his soul in his life-time, and men will give you praise if you do well for yourself,

49:19 He will go to the generation of his fathers; he will not see the light again.

49:20 Man, like the animals, does not go on for ever; he comes to an end like the beasts.
