Psalms 49

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

Psalms 49:1 {To the chiefe musition, a psalme of the children of Corach.} Heare this all ye people: geue eare all ye that dwell in the worlde. Psalms 49:2 As well lowe as high: riche and poore, one with another. Psalms 49:3 My mouth shall vtter wisdome: the cogitations of myne heart [wyll bryng foorth] knowledge. Psalms 49:4 I wyll encline myne eare to a parable: I wyll open my darke sentence vpon a harpe. Psalms 49:5 Wherfore shoulde I feare in euyll dayes? the wickednesse of my heeles [then] would compasse me round about. Psalms 49:6 There be some that put their trust in their goodes: and boast them selues in the multitude of their riches. Psalms 49:7 But no man at all can redeeme his brother: nor geue a raunsome vnto God for hym. Psalms 49:8 For the redemption of their soule is very costly, and must be let alone for euer: Psalms 49:9 yea though he lyue long and see not the graue. Psalms 49:10 For he seeth that wyse men dye: and that the foole and ignoraunt perishe together, and leaue their riches for other. Psalms 49:11 And yet they thynke that their houses shall continue for euer, and that their dwellyng places shall endure from one generation to another: [therfore] they call landes after their owne names. Psalms 49:12 Neuerthelesse, man can not abyde in [such] honour: he is but lyke vnto bruite beastes that perishe. Psalms 49:13 This their way is their foolishnesse: yet their posteritie prayse their saying. Selah. Psalms 49:14 They shalbe put into a graue [dead] as a sheepe, death shall feede on them: but the ryghteous shall haue dominion of them in the mornyng, their beautie shall consume away, hell [shall receaue them] from their house. Psalms 49:15 But God wyll delyuer my soule from the place of hell: for he wyll receaue me. Selah.

Worldly prosperity is not to be admired.

Psalms 49:16 Be not thou afrayde though one be made riche: or yf the glorie of his house be encreased. Psalms 49:17 For he shall cary nothyng away with hym when he dyeth: neither shall his pompe folowe after hym. Psalms 49:18 For whyle he lyued he counted him selfe an happy man: and so long as thou doest well vnto thy selfe, men wyll speake good of thee. Psalms 49:19 But he shal folowe the generations of his fathers: and shall neuer see lyght. Psalms 49:20 A man is in an honourable state, but he wyll not vnderstande it: he is lyke [herein] vnto bruite beastes that perishe.
