Psalm 49
Douay-Rheims Bible

The Transiency of the Wealth

(Psalm 16:1-11; Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-9)

1{48:1}Unto the end, a psalm for the sons of Core. [2] Hear these things, all ye nations: give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world.

2{48:3}All you that are earthborn, and you sons of men: both rich and poor together.

3{48:4}My mouth shall speak wisdom: and the meditation of my heart understanding.

4{48:5}I will incline my ear to a parable; I will open my proposition on the psaltery.

5{48:6}Why shall I fear in the evil day? the iniquity of my heel shall encompass me.

6{48:7}They that trust in their own strength, and glory in the multitude of their riches,

7{48:8}No brother can redeem, nor shall man redeem: he shall not give to God his ransom,

8{48:9}Nor the price of the redemption of his soul: and shall labour for ever,

9{48:10}And shall still live unto the end.

10{48:11}He shall not see destruction, when he shall see the wise dying: the senseless and the fool shall perish together: And they shall leave their riches to strangers:

11{48:12}And their sepulchres shall be their houses for ever. Their dwelling places to all generations: they have called their lands by their names.

12{48:13}And man when he was in honour did not understand; he is compared to senseless beasts, and is become like to them.

13{48:14}This way of theirs is a stumblingblock to them: and afterwards they shall delight in their mouth.

14{48:15}They are laid in hell like sheep: death shall feed upon them. And the just shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their help shall decay in hell from their glory.

15{48:16}But God will redeem my soul from the hand of hell, when he shall receive me.

16{48:17}Be not thou afraid, when a man shall be made rich, and when the glory of his house shall be increased.

17{48:18}For when he shall die he shall take nothing away; nor shall his glory descend with him.

18{48:19}For in his lifetime his soul will be blessed: and he will praise thee when thou shalt do well to him.

19{48:20}He shall go in to the generations of his fathers: and he shall never see light.

20{48:21}Man when he was in honour did not understand: he hath been compared to senseless beasts, and made like to them.
