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 of the chyldren of Corah.} O heare thys, all ye people: pondre it wel, all ye that dwel vpon the earth. Psalms 49:2 Hye & lowe, & rych & poore, one wyth another. Psalms 49:3 My mouth shall speake of wysdome, and my hert shall muse of vnderstandynge. Psalms 49:4 I will enclyne myne eare to the parable, and shewe my darke speach vpon the harpe. Psalms 49:5 Wherfore should I feare the euel dayes, when the wickednesse of my heles compaseth me rounde aboute? Psalms 49:6 They that put their trust in their good, & boast theym selfes in the multitude of theyr ryches. Psalms 49:7 No man may deliuer his brother, nor make agrement vnto hym for God. Psalms 49:8 For it costeth more to redeme their soules so that he must let that alone for euer. Psalms 49:9 Yea, though he liue longe, and se not the graue. Psalms 49:10 For it shalbe sene, that such wyse men shal dye and perysh together, as wel as the ignoraunt and folysh, and leue their goodes for other. Psalms 49:11 Loke what is in their houses, it contynueth still: their dwellyng places endure from one generacion to another, and are called after their owne names vpon the earth. Psalms 49:12 Neuerthelesse man abydeth not in suche honour, but is compared vnto the brute beastes, and becommeth lyke vnto them. Psalms 49:13 This waye of theirs is very folyshnesse, and yet their posteritie prayse it wyth theyr mouth. Selah. Psalms 49:14 They lye in the hell like shepe, death shall gnawe vpon theim, and the righteous shall haue dominacion of theim in the mornynge by tymes: their strength shall consume, and hell shalbe their dwellynge. Psalms 49:15 But God shall deliuer my soule from the power of hell, when he receyueth me. Selah.

Worldly prosperity is not to be admired.

Psalms 49:16 O be not thou afraied, when one is made ryche, & the glory of hys house increased. Psalms 49:17 For he shall cary nothynge away wyth hym when he dyeth, neither shall his pompe folowe hym. Psalms 49:18 Whyle he lyueth, he is counted an happy man: and so long as he is in prosperitie, men speake good of hym. Psalms 49:19 But when he foloweth his fathers generacion, he shall neuer se light any more. Psalms 49:20 When a man is in honour and hath no vnderstandinge, he is compared vnto the brute beastes, and becommeth lyke vnto them.
