    Psalms 49
    King James Version

    1 Hear this, all ye people;
    give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:​
    2 Both low and high,
    rich and poor, together.​
    3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom;
    and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.​
    4 I will incline mine ear to a parable:
    I will open my dark saying upon the harp.​

    5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil,
    when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?​
    6 They that trust in their wealth,
    and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;​
    7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother,
    nor give to God a ransom for him:​
    8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious,
    and it ceaseth for ever)​
    9 That he should still live for ever,
    and not see corruption.​

    10 For he seeth that wise men die,
    likewise the fool and the brutish person perish,
    and leave their wealth to others.​
    11 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.​
    12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not:
    he is like the beasts that perish.​

    13 This their way is their folly:
    yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.​
    14 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.​
    15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave:
    for he shall receive me. Selah.​

    16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich,
    when the glory of his house is increased;​
    17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away:
    his glory shall not descend after him.​
    18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul:
    and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.​
    19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers;
    they shall never see light.​
    20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not,
    is like the beasts that perish.​

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
