Psalms 49
New Living Translation
49[For the choir director: A psalm of the descendants of Korah.] Listen to this, all you people! Pay attention, everyone in the world!H5329H4210H1121H7141H8085H5971H238H3427H2465 2High and low, rich and poor—listen!H1121H120H1121H376H6223H34H3162 3For my words are wise, and my thoughts are filled with insight.H6310H1696H2454H1900H3820H8394 4I listen carefully to many proverbs and solve riddles with inspiration from a harp.H5186H241H4912H6605H2420H3658 5Why should I fear when trouble comes, when enemies surround me?H3372H3117H7451H5771H6120H5437 6They trust in their wealth and boast of great riches.H982H2428H1984H7230H6239 7Yet they cannot redeem themselves from death by paying a ransom to God.H376H6299H6299H251H5414H430H3724 8Redemption does not come so easily, for no one can ever pay enoughH6306H5315H3365H2308H5769 9to live forever and never see the grave.H2421H5331H7200H7845 10Those who are wise must finally die, just like the foolish and senseless, leaving all their wealth behind.H7200H2450H4191H3162H3684H1198H6H5800H2428H312 11The grave is their eternal home, where they will stay forever. They may name their estates after themselves,H7130H1004H5769H4908H1755H1755H7121H127H8034 12but their fame will not last. They will die, just like animals.H120H3366H3885H4911H929H1820 13This is the fate of fools, though they are remembered as being wise. InterludeH1870H3689H310H7521H6310H5542 14Like sheep, they are led to the grave, where death will be their shepherd. In the morning the godly will rule over them. Their bodies will rot in the grave, far from their grand estates.H6629H8371H7585H4194H7462H3477H7287H1242H6697H6736H1086H7585H2073 15But as for me, God will redeem my life. He will snatch me from the power of the grave. InterludeH430H6299H5315H3027H7585H3947H5542 16So don't be dismayed when the wicked grow rich and their homes become ever more splendid.H3372H376H6238H3519H1004H7235 17For when they die, they take nothing with them. Their wealth will not follow them into the grave.H4194H3947H3519H3381H310 18In this life they consider themselves fortunate and are applauded for their success.H2416H1288H5315H3034H3190 19But they will die like all before them and never again see the light of day.H935H1755H1H3808H5331H7200H216 20People who boast of their wealth don't understand; they will die, just like animals.H120H3366H995H4911H929H1820
