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, A Psalm for the sons of Korah.} Hear this, all [ye] people; give ear, all [ye] inhabitants of the world: Psalms 49:2 Both low and high, rich and poor together. Psalms 49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart [shall be] of understanding. Psalms 49:4 I will incline my ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp. Psalms 49:5 Why should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the iniquity of my heels shall encompass me? Psalms 49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; Psalms 49:7 None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: Psalms 49:8 (For the redemption of their soul [is] precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) Psalms 49:9 That he should still live for ever, [and] not see corruption. Psalms 49:10 For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others. Psalms 49:11 Their inward thought [is], [that] their houses [shall continue] for ever, [and] their dwelling places to all generations; they call [their] lands after their own names. Psalms 49:12 Nevertheless man [being] in honor abideth not: he is like the beasts [that] perish. Psalms 49:13 This their way [is] their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah. Psalms 49:14 Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling. Psalms 49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

Worldly prosperity is not to be admired.

Psalms 49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; Psalms 49:17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. Psalms 49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and [men] will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself. Psalms 49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light. Psalms 49:20 Man [that is] in honor, and understandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish.
