   1: Hear this, all ye peoples; Give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world,
   2: Both low and high, Rich and poor together.
   3: My mouth shall speak wisdom; And the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
   4: I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
   5: Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, When iniquity at my heels compasseth me about?
   6: They that trust in their wealth, And boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
   7: None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, Nor give to God a ransom for him;
   8: (For the redemption of their life is costly, And it faileth for ever;)
   9: That he should still live alway, That he should not see corruption.
   10: For he shall see it. Wise men die; The fool and the brutish alike perish, And leave their wealth to others.
   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.
   12: But man [being] in honor abideth not: He is like the beasts that perish.
   13: This their way is their folly: Yet after them men approve their sayings. Selah
   14: They are appointed as a flock for Sheol; Death shall be their shepherd; And the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; And their beauty shall be for Sheol to consume, That there be no habitation for it.
   15: But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol; For he will receive me. Selah
   16: Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, When the glory of his house is increased.
   17: For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away; His glory shall not descend after him.
   18: Though while he lived he blessed his soul (And men praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself,)
   19: He shall go to the generation of his fathers; They shall never see the light.
   20: Man that is in honor, and understandeth not, Is like the beasts that perish.
