Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 49

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

Psalms 49:1 {To the Chief Musician. For the Sons of Korah. A Melody.} Hear ye this, all ye peoples, Give ear, all ye inhabitants of this passing world; Psalms 49:2 Both sons of the low, And sons of the high,—Together both rich and needy:— Psalms 49:3 My mouth, shall speak forth Wisdom, And the soft utterance of my heart be Understanding: Psalms 49:4 I will bend, to a by-word, mine ear, I will open, on the lyre, mine enigma. Psalms 49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of calamity, Though the iniquity of them who lie in wait for me should enclose me? Psalms 49:6 As for them who are trusting in their wealth,—And, in the abundance of their riches, do boast themselves, Psalms 49:7 A brother, can none of them, redeem, he cannot give unto God a ransom for himself: Psalms 49:8 So costly, is the redemption of their soul, That it faileth unto times age-abiding; Psalms 49:9 That he should, yet, live on, continually, Should not see corruption. Psalms 49:10 For it is seen that, the wise, die, Together with the dullard, and the brutish, do they perish, And leave, to others, their wealth: Psalms 49:11 Their, inward thought, is that their houses are for times age-abiding, Their habitations, for generation after generation,—They give their own names unto lands! Psalms 49:12 But, a son of earth, though wealthy, cannot tarry, He hath made himself a by-word—Beasts, they resemble: Psalms 49:13 This, their way, is a folly to them, And yet, their followers, with their mouth, approve. [Selah.] Psalms 49:14 Like sheep—into hades, are they driven, Death shall shepherd them,—And the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning, Even their form, is to decay, Hades, is all that remaineth of a habitation for him. Psalms 49:15 But, God, will redeem my soul, out of the hand of hades, For he will take me. [Selah.]

Worldly prosperity is not to be admired.

Psalms 49:16 Do not fear, When a man becometh rich, When the glory of his house increaseth; Psalms 49:17 For, when he dieth, he shall take, nothing, his glory shall not descend after him; Psalms 49:18 For, though, his own self—while he lived, he used to bless, And they will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself, Psalms 49:19 He shall enter as far as the circle of his fathers, Nevermore, shall they see the light. Psalms 49:20 A son of earth though wealthy, who discerneth not, Hath made himself a by-word, Beasts, they resemble.
