To the chiefH5329 Musician,H5329 A PsalmH4210 for the sonsH1121 of Korah.H7141 HearH8085 this,H2063 allH3605 you people;H5971 give ear,H238 allH3605 you inhabitantsH3427 of the world:H2465
BothH1571 lowH120 and high,H376 richH6223 and poor,H34 together.H3162
My mouthH6310 shall speakH1696 of wisdom;H2454 and the meditationH1900 of my heartH3820 shall be of understanding.H8394
I will inclineH5186 my earH241 to a parable:H4912 I will openH6605 my darkH2420 sayingH2420 on the harp.H3658
WhyH4100 should I fearH3372 in the daysH3117 of evil,H7451 when the iniquityH5771 of my heelsH6120 shall compassH5437 me about?
They that trustH982 in their wealth,H2428 and boastH1984 themselves in the multitudeH7230 of their riches;H6239
NoneH376 H3808 of them can by any means redeemH6299 his brother,H251 norH3808 giveH5414 to GodH430 a ransomH3724 for him:
(For the redemptionH6306 of their soulH5315 is precious,H3365 and it ceasesH2308 for ever:H5769)
That he should stillH5750 liveH2421 for ever,H5331 and not seeH7200 corruption.H7845
For he seesH7200 that wiseH2450 men die,H4191 likewise the foolH3684 and the brutishH1197 person perish,H6 and leaveH5800 their wealthH2428 to others.H312
Their inwardH7130 thought is, that their housesH1004 shall continue for ever,H5769 and their dwellingH4908 places to all generations;H1755 they callH7121 their landsH127 after their own names.H8034
Nevertheless manH120 being in honorH3366 staysH3885 not: he is likeH4911 the beastsH929 that perish.H1820
ThisH2088 their wayH1870 is their folly:H3689 yet their posterityH310 approveH7521 their sayings.H6310 Selah.H5542
Like sheepH6629 they are laidH8371 in the grave;H7585 deathH4194 shall feedH7462 on them; and the uprightH3477 shall have dominionH7287 over them in the morning;H1242 and their beautyH6736 shall consumeH1086 in the graveH7585 from their dwelling.H2073
But GodH430 will redeemH6299 my soulH5315 from the powerH3027 of the grave:H7585 for he shall receiveH3947 me. Selah.H5542
Be not you afraidH3372 whenH3588 oneH376 is made rich,H6238 whenH3588 the gloryH3519 of his houseH1004 is increased;H7235
For whenH3588 he diesH4194 he shall carryH3947 nothingH3808 H3605 away: his gloryH3519 shall not descendH3381 afterH310 him.
ThoughH3588 while he livedH2416 he blessedH1288 his soul:H5315 and men will praiseH3034 you, whenH3588 you do wellH3190 to yourself.
He shall goH935 to the generationH1755 of his fathers;H1 they shall neverH5704 seeH7200 light.H216
ManH120 that is in honor,H3366 and understandsH995 not, is likeH4911 the beastsH929 that perish.H1820
