The Folly of Trusting in Riches.

For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1 Hear R1460 this, all peoples;

Give ear, all inhabitants R1461 of the world,

2 Both low R1462 and high,

Rich and poor together.

3 My mouth will speak R1463 wisdom,

And the meditation of my heart will be understanding. R1464

4 I will incline my ear to a R1465 proverb;

I R1466 will express F431 my riddle R1467 on the harp.

5 Why should I fear R1468 in days of adversity,

When the iniquity of my foes F432 surrounds me,

6 Even those who trust R1469 in their wealth

And boast in the abundance of their riches?

7 No man can by any means redeem R1470 his brother

Or give to God a ransom R1471 for him--

8 For the R1472 redemption of his F433 soul is costly,

And he should cease trying forever--

9 That he should live R1473 on eternally,

That he should not undergo R1474 F434 decay.

10 For he sees that even wise R1475 men die;

The stupid R1476 and the senseless alike perish

And leave R1477 their wealth to others.

11 Their inner R1478 F435 thought is that their houses are R1479 forever

And their dwelling places to all generations;

They have called R1480 their lands after their own names.

12 But man R1481 in his pomp F436 will not endure;

He is like the beasts F437 that perish. F438

13 This is the way R1482 of those who are foolish,

And of those after them who approve R1483 their words. Selah. F439

14 As sheep they are appointed for R1484 Sheol; F440

Death shall be their shepherd;

And the upright R1485 shall rule over them in the morning,

And their form shall be for Sheol F440 to R1486 consume

So F441 that they have no habitation.

15 But God will redeem R1487 my soul from the power F442 of Sheol, F443

For He R1488 will receive me. Selah.

16 Do not be afraid when R1489 a man becomes rich,

When the glory F444 of his house is increased;

17 For when he dies he will carry R1490 nothing away;

His glory F445 will not descend after him.

18 Though while he lives he congratulates R1491 himself-- F446

And though men praise you when you do well for yourself--

19 He F447 shall go R1492 to the generation of his fathers;

They will never see the R1493 light.

20 Man R1494 in his pomp, F448 yet without understanding,

Is like R1495 the beasts F449 that perish. F450
