TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49
A Call For Attention
1 ¶ To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. Hear this, all you people; give ear, all you inhabitants of the world:
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:2
2 Both low adam and high ish-man, rich and poor, together.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:3
3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:4
4 I will incline my ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:5
5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
Folly Of Misplaced Trust in Wealth
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:6
6 ¶ They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:7
7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to YAHWEH a ransom for him:
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:8
8 For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceases forever:
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:9
9 That he should still live continually, and not see corruption.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:10
10 For he sees that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:11
11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue forever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:12
12 Nevertheless adam being in honor abides not: he is like the beasts that perish.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:13
13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:14
14 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.
Against Fear Of Death
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:15
15 ¶ But YAHWEH will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for HE shall receive me. Selah.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:16
16 Be not you afraid when one is made rich, when the splendor of his house is increased;
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:17
17 For when he dies he shall carry nothing away: his splendor shall not descend after him.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:18
18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise you, when you do well to yourself.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:19
19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see Light.
TEHILLIM - PSALMS 49:20
20 Sons of Adam that is in honor, but understands not, is like the beasts that perish.
