Psalm 49:1-Psalm 50:1 - Misplaced Trust In Wealth
1 For the choir director. A psalm of the sons of Korah.
listen, all who inhabit the world,
rich and poor together.
my heart’s meditation brings understanding.
I explain my riddle with a lyre.
The iniquity of my foes surrounds me.
and boast of their abundant riches.
or pay his ransom to God
one should forever stop trying
and not see the Pit.
foolish and stupid men also pass away.
Then they leave their wealth to others.
their homes from generation to generation,
though they have named estates after themselves.
he is like the animals that perish.
and of their followers,
who approve of their words.
Death will shepherd them.
The upright will rule over them in the morning,
and their form will waste away in Sheol,
far from their lofty abode.
from the power of Sheol,
for He will take me.
when the wealth
and people praise you when you do well for yourself
they will never see the light.
but without understanding
is like the animals that perish.
1 A psalm of Asaph.
He summons the earth from east to west.
