Psalms 49

1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:

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.

5  Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

6  They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

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

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

9  That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

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