Geneva Study Bible
   1: (For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.) Hear this, all you peoples. Listen, all you inhabitants of the world,
   2: Both low and high, Rich and poor together.
   3: My mouth will speak words of wisdom. My heart shall utter understanding.
   4: I will incline my ear to a proverb. I will open my riddle on the harp.
   5: Why should I fear in the days of evil, When iniquity at my heels surrounds me?
   6: Those who trust in their wealth, And boast in the multitude of their riches --
   7: None of them can by any means redeem his brother, Nor give God a ransom for him.
   8: For the redemption of their life is costly, No payment is ever enough,
   9: That he should live on forever, That he should not see corruption.
   10: For he sees that wise men die; Likewise the fool and the senseless perish, And leave their wealth to others.
   11: Their inward thought is, that their houses will endure forever, And their dwelling places to all generations. They name their lands after themselves.
   12: But man, despite his riches, doesn't endure. He is like the animals that perish.
   13: This is the destiny of those who are foolish, And of those who approve their sayings. Selah.
   14: They are appointed as a flock for Sheol. Death shall be their shepherd. The upright shall have dominion over them in the morning. Their beauty shall decay in Sheol, Far from their mansion.
   15: But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol, For he will receive me. Selah.
   16: Don't be afraid when a man is made rich, When the glory of his house is increased.
   17: For when he dies he shall carry nothing away. His glory shall not descend after him.
   18: Though while he lived he blessed his soul -- And men praise you when you do well for yourself --
   19: He shall go to the generation of his fathers. They shall never see the light.
   20: A man who has riches without understanding, Is like the animals that perish.
