that [the] rejoicing of [the] wicked [is] {short}, and the joy of [the] godless {lasts only a moment}? Even though his stature mounts up to the heaven, and his head reaches to the clouds, he will perish forever like his dung; [those who] have seen him will say, 'Where [is] he?' read more.
He will fly away like a dream, and they will not find him, and he will be chased away like a vision of [the] night. [The] eye [that] saw him {will not see him again}, and his place will no longer behold him.

They are exalted a little while, then {they are gone}. And they are brought low; they are cut off like all [others], and like [the] heads of grain they wither away.

Within them [they think] their houses [are] forever, their dwelling places from generation to generation. They {name} [their] lands by their [own] names. But man cannot continue in [his] pomp.

Like sheep they are destined to Sheol; death will shepherd them. But the upright will rule over them in the morning, and their forms [will be for] Sheol to consume, [far from] his lofty abode. Surely God will ransom my life from the {power} of Sheol, because he will receive me. Selah Do not fear when a man becomes rich, when the wealth of his house increases, because when he dies he will not take [away] any [of it]. His wealth will not follow down after him. Though he congratulated his soul while he was living --and [people] will praise you when you do well for yourself-- it will go to the generation of his fathers. Never will they see light. Humankind in [its] pomp, but does not understand, is like the beasts [that] perish.



Why do you boast about evil, O mighty man? The loyal love of God [endures] {continually}. Your tongue plans destruction, like a sharp razor, working deceit. You love evil more than good, a lie more than speaking {what is right}. Selah read more.
You love all devouring words, O deceitful tongue, but God will pull you down forever. He will snatch you and tear you away from [your] tent, and [he] will uproot you from [the] land of [the] living. Selah And [the] righteous will see and fear, and will laugh at him, [saying], "Look, the man [who] would not make God his refuge, but he trusted in the greatness of his wealth; he took refuge in his destructiveness."

And Jesus said to his disciples, "Truly I say to you that with difficulty a rich person will enter into the kingdom of heaven! And again I say to you, it is easier [for] a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich person into the kingdom of God." So [when] the disciples heard [this], they were extremely amazed, saying, "Then who can be saved?" read more.
But Jesus looked at [them] [and] said to them, "With human beings this is impossible, but with God all [things] [are] possible."

And Jesus looked around [and] said to his disciples, "How {difficult it is for} those who possess wealth to enter into the kingdom of God!" And the disciples were astounded at his words. But Jesus answered [and] said to them again, "Children, how difficult it is to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier [for] a camel to go through the eye of a needle than [for] a rich person to enter into the kingdom of God." read more.
And they were very astounded, saying to one another, "And who can be saved?" Jesus looked at them [and] said, "With human beings [it is] impossible, but not with God. For all [things] [are] possible with God."

And Jesus took notice of him [and] said, "How {difficult it is for} those who possess wealth to enter into the kingdom of God!

But he said, "[What is] impossible with men is possible with God."

those who trust their wealth and boast about the abundance of their riches? Surely a man cannot redeem a brother. He cannot give to God his ransom (since the redemption price for their life is costly and it always fails), read more.
so that he may stay alive forever [and] not see the pit. For he sees [that] the wise die, together [with the] fool and brute they perish, and leave their wealth to the next [generation]. Within them [they think] their houses [are] forever, their dwelling places from generation to generation. They {name} [their] lands by their [own] names. But man cannot continue in [his] pomp.
