   1: (To the chief Musician. Of the sons of Korah. A Psalm.) Hear this, all ye peoples; give ear, all inhabitants of the world:
   2: Both men of low and men of high degree, rich and poor alike.
   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 riddle upon the harp.
   5: Wherefore should I fear in the days of adversity, [when] the iniquity of my supplanters encompasseth me? --
   6: They depend upon their wealth, and boast themselves in the abundance of their riches. ...
   7: None can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him,
   8: (For the redemption of their soul is costly, and must be given up for ever,)
   9: That he should still live perpetually, [and] not see corruption.
   10: For he seeth that wise men die; all alike, the fool and the brutish perish, and they leave their wealth to others.
   11: Their inward thought is, that their houses are for ever, their dwelling-places from generation to generation: they call the lands after their own names.
   12: Nevertheless, man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.
   13: This their way is their folly, yet they that come after them delight in their sayings. Selah.
   14: Like sheep are they laid in Sheol: Death feedeth on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their comeliness shall be for Sheol to consume, that there be no habitation for them.
   15: But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol: for he will receive me. Selah.
   16: Be not afraid when a man becometh 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 he blessed his soul in his lifetime, -- and men will praise thee when thou doest well to thyself, --
   19: It shall go to the generation of his fathers: they shall never see light.
   20: Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
