Psalms 49

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

Psalms 49:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme committed to the sonnes of Korah.} Heare this, all ye people: giue eare, all ye that dwell in the world, Psalms 49:2 As well lowe as hie, both rich and poore. Psalms 49:3 My mouth shal speake of wisdome, and the meditation of mine heart is of knowledge. Psalms 49:4 I will incline mine eare to a parable, and vtter my graue matter vpon the harpe. Psalms 49:5 Wherefore should I feare in the euil dayes, when iniquitie shal compasse me about, as at mine heeles? Psalms 49:6 They trust in their goods, and boast them selues in the multitude of their riches. Psalms 49:7 Yet a man can by no meanes redeeme his brother: he can not giue his raunsome to God, Psalms 49:8 (So precious is the redemption of their soules, and the continuance for euer) Psalms 49:9 That he may liue still for euer, and not see the graue. Psalms 49:10 For he seeth that wise men die, and also that the ignorant and foolish perish, & leaue their riches for others. Psalms 49:11 Yet they thinke, their houses, and their habitations shall continue for euer, euen from generation to generation, and call their lands by their names. Psalms 49:12 But man shall not continue in honour: he is like the beastes that die. Psalms 49:13 This their way vttereth their foolishnes: yet their posteritie delite in their talke. Selah. Psalms 49:14 Like sheepe they lie in graue: death deuoureth them, and the righteous shall haue domination ouer them in the morning: for their beautie shall consume, when they shall goe from their house to graue. Psalms 49:15 But God shall deliuer my soule from the power of the graue: for he will receiue me. Selah.

Worldly prosperity is not to be admired.

Psalms 49:16 Be not thou afrayd when one is made rich, and when the glory of his house is increased. Psalms 49:17 For he shall take nothing away when he dieth, neither shal his pompe descende after him. Psalms 49:18 For while he liued, he reioyced himselfe: and men will prayse thee, when thou makest much of thy selfe. Psalms 49:19 He shal enter into the generation of his fathers, and they shall not liue for euer. Psalms 49:20 Man is in honour, and vnderstandeth not: he is like to beasts that perish.
