Psalms 49

An earnest persuasion to build the faith of resurrection, not on worldly power, but on God.

Psalms 49:1 {To the chiefe Musician, a Psalme for the sonnes of Korah.} Heare this, all [yee] people, giue eare all yee inhabitants of the world: Psalms 49:2 Both low, and high, rich and poore together. Psalms 49:3 My mouth shall speake of wisedome: and the meditation of my heart shalbe of vnderstanding. Psalms 49:4 I will incline mine eare to a parable; I will open my darke saying vpon the harpe. Psalms 49:5 Wherefore should I feare in the daies of euill, [when] the iniquitie of my heeles shall compasse me about? Psalms 49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselues in the multitude of their riches: Psalms 49:7 None [of them] can by any meanes redeeme [his] brother, nor giue to God a ransome for him: Psalms 49:8 (For the redemption of their soule [is] precious, and it ceaseth for euer.) Psalms 49:9 That he should still liue for euer, [and] not see corruption. Psalms 49:10 For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the foole, and the brutish person perish, and leaue their wealth to others. Psalms 49:11 Their inward thought [is, that] their houses [shall continue] for euer, [and] their dwelling places to all generations; they call [their] lands after their owne names. Psalms 49:12 Neuerthelesse man [being] in honour abideth not: he is like the beastes [that] perish. Psalms 49:13 This their way [is] their follie; yet their posteritie approue their sayings. Selah. Psalms 49:14 Like sheepe they are layd in the graue, death shall feede on them; and the vpright shall haue dominion ouer them in the morning, and their beauty shall consume in the graue, from their dwelling. Psalms 49:15 But God will redeeme my soule from the power of the graue; for he shall receiue me. Selah.

Worldly prosperity is not to be admired.

Psalms 49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased. Psalms 49:17 For when he dieth, he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. Psalms 49:18 Though whiles he liued, he blessed his soule: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thy selfe. Psalms 49:19 Hee shall goe to the generation of his fathers, they shall neuer see light. Psalms 49:20 Man [that is] in honour and vnderstandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish.
