the praise of the ungodly hath been short, and that the joy of the hypocrites continued but the twinkling of an eye? Though he be magnified up to the heaven, so that his head reacheth into the clouds: yet he perisheth at the last, like dung. Insomuch that they which have seen him, say, 'Where is he?' read more.

And yet they think that their houses shall continue forever, and that their dwelling-places shall endure from one generation to another; and call the lands after their own names. Nevertheless, man will not abide in honour, seeing he may be compared unto the beasts that perish; this is the way of them. This way of theirs is very foolishness, and yet their posterity praise it with their mouth. Selah. read more.
They lie in the hell like sheep, death gnaweth upon them, and the righteous shall have domination of them in the morning.

But when he followeth his fathers' generation, he shall never see light any more. When a man is in honour and hath no understanding, he is compared unto the brute beasts - and becometh like unto them.

The more they increased in multitude, the more they sinned against me, therefore will I change their honour into shame.

Men may hear the shepherds mourn, for their glory is destroyed. Men may hear the lion's whelps roar, for the pride of Jordan is wasted away.

And they were astonished out of measure, saying between themselves, "Who then can be saved?" Jesus looked upon them, and said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible."

When Jesus saw him mourn, he said, "With what difficulty shall they that have riches, enter into the kingdom of God: Easier it is for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."
