Chapitre 49

Hear this, all [ye] people; give ear, all [ye] inhabitants of the world:

1.

Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

2.

My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart [shall be] of understanding.

3.

I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.

4.

Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, [when] the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

5.

They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

6.

None [of them] can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

7.

(For the redemption of their soul [is] precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

8.

That he should still live for ever, [and] not see corruption.

9.

For he seeth [that] wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

10.

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.

11.

Nevertheless man [being] in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts [that] perish.

12.

This their way [is] their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

13.

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.

14.

But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

15.

Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

16.

For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

17.

Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and [men] will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

18.

He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

19.

Man [that is] in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish.

20.
