Psalm 49

1  Hear this, all you peoples; 
   listen, all you that dwell in the world,
2  You of low or high degree, 
   both rich and poor together.
3  My mouth shall speak of wisdom 
   and my heart shall meditate on understanding.
4  I will incline my ear to a parable; 
   I will unfold my riddle with the lyre.
5  Why should I fear in evil days, 
   when the malice of my foes surrounds me,
6  Such as trust in their goods 
   and glory in the abundance of their riches?
7  For no one can indeed ransom another 
   or pay to God the price of deliverance.
8  To ransom a soul is too costly; 
   there is no price one could pay for it,
9  So that they might live for ever, 
   and never see the grave.
10  For we see that the wise die also;
      with the foolish and ignorant they perish 
   and leave their riches to others.
11  Their tomb is their home for ever,
      their dwelling through all generations, 
   though they call their lands after their own names.
