Psalms 49

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

Psalms 49:1 {To the chaunter, a Psalme for the chyldren of Corah.} O heare this, all ye people: pondre it with your eares, all ye that dwell in the worlde. Psalms 49:2 Hye and lowe, ryche and poore, one wyth another: Psalms 49:3 My mouth shall speake of wysdome, and my hert shall muse of vnderstandyng. Psalms 49:4 I wyll enclyne myne eare to the parable, and shew my darcke speach vpon the harpe. Psalms 49:5 Wherfore shulde I feare in the dayes of wyckednesse, and when the wyckednesse of my heles compaseth me round about? Psalms 49:6 There be some that put theyr in trust their goodes, & boast them selues in the multitude of theyr ryches. Psalms 49:7 But no man maye delyuer hys brother, ner make agrement vnto God for hym. Psalms 49:8 For it costeth more to redeme theyr soules, so that he must let þt alone for euer. Psalms 49:9 Yee, though he lyue longe, and se nat the graue. Psalms 49:10 For he seeth, that wyse men also dye, and peryshe together, as well as the ignoraunt & folysh, and leaue theyr ryches for other: Psalms 49:11 And yet they thynke, that theyr houses shall continue for euer, and that theyr dwelling places shall endure from one generacyon to another, & call the landes after theyr awne names. Psalms 49:12 Neuerthelesse, man wyll not abyde in honour, seyng he maye be compared vnto the beastes that peryshe: this is the waye of them. Psalms 49:13 Thys is their folyshnesse, and their posterite prayse their sayeng. Sela. Psalms 49:14 They lye in þe hell lyke shepe, death gnaweth vpon them, and the ryghteous shall haue dominacyon of them in the mornynge: theyr bewtye shall consume in the sepulchre out of theyr dwellynge. Psalms 49:15 But God shall delyuer my soule from the place of hell, for he shall receaue me. Sela.

Worldly prosperity is not to be admired.

Psalms 49:16 Be not thou afrayed though one be made ryche, or yf the glory of hys house be increased. Psalms 49:17 For he shall cary nothyng awaye with hym when he dyeth, nether shall hys pompe folowe hym: Psalms 49:18 For whyle he lyued, he counted hymselfe an happye man: and so longe as thou doest well vnto thy selfe, men wyll speake good of the. Psalms 49:19 He shall folowe the generacyons of hys fathers, and shall neuer se lyght. Psalms 49:20 Man beynge in honoure hath no vnderstandyng, but is compared vnto the beastes, that peryshe.
