Psalm 49 (WEBP)
 Hear this, all you peoples. Listen, all you inhabitants of the world,
 both low and high, rich and poor together.
 My mouth will speak words of wisdom. My heart will utter understanding.
 I will incline my ear to a proverb. I will solve my riddle on the harp.
 Why should I fear in the days of evil, when iniquity at my heels surrounds me?
 Those who trust in their wealth, and boast in the multitude of their riches—
 none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give God a ransom for him.
 For the redemption of their life is costly, no payment is ever enough,
 that he should live on forever, that he should not see corruption.
 For he sees that wise men die; likewise the fool and the senseless perish, and leave their wealth to others.
 Their inward thought is that their houses will endure forever, and their dwelling places to all generations. They name their lands after themselves.
 But man, despite his riches, doesn’t endure. He is like the animals that perish.
 This is the destiny of those who are foolish, and of those who approve their sayings. Selah.
 They are appointed as a flock for Sheol.° Death shall be their shepherd. The upright shall have dominion over them in the morning. Their beauty shall decay in Sheol,° far from their mansion.
 But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol,° for he will receive me. Selah.
 Don’t be afraid when a man is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
 for when he dies he will carry nothing away. His glory won’t descend after him.
 Though while he lived he blessed his soul— and men praise you when you do well for yourself—
 he shall go to the generation of his fathers. They shall never see the light.
 A man who has riches without understanding, is like the animals that perish.
Psalm 49:14a Sheol is the place of the dead.
Psalm 49:14b Sheol is the place of the dead.
Psalm 49:15 Sheol is the place of the dead.

Psalm 49 (KJVS)
 «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), A Psalm H4210 for the sons H1121 of Korah H7141.» Hear H8085 (8798) this, all [ye] people H5971; give ear H238 (8685), all [ye] inhabitants H3427 (8802) of the world H2465:
 Both low H1121 H120 and high H1121 H376, rich H6223 and poor H34, together H3162.
 My mouth H6310 shall speak H1696 (8762) of wisdom H2454; and the meditation H1900 of my heart H3820 [shall be] of understanding H8394.
 I will incline H5186 (8686) mine ear H241 to a parable H4912: I will open H6605 (8799) my dark saying H2420 upon the harp H3658.
 Wherefore should I fear H3372 (8799) in the days H3117 of evil H7451, [when] the iniquity H5771 of my heels H6120 shall compass H5437 (8799) me about?
 They that trust H982 (8802) in their wealth H2428, and boast H1984 (8691) themselves in the multitude H7230 of their riches H6239;
 None [of them] can H376 by any means H6299 (8800) redeem H6299 (8799) his brother H251, nor give H5414 (8799) to God H430 a ransom H3724 for him:
 (For the redemption H6306 of their soul H5315 [is] precious H3365 (8799), and it ceaseth H2308 (8804) for ever H5769:)
 That he should still live H2421 (8799) for ever H5331, [and] not see H7200 (8799) corruption H7845.
 For he seeth H7200 (8799) [that] wise men H2450 die H4191 (8799), likewise H3162 the fool H3684 and the brutish person H1198 perish H6 (8799), and leave H5800 (8804) their wealth H2428 to others H312.
 Their inward H7130 thought [is, that] their houses H1004 [shall continue] for ever H5769, [and] their dwelling H4908 places to all H1755 generations H1755; they call H7121 (8804) [their] lands H127 after their own names H8034.
 Nevertheless man H120 [being] in honour H3366 abideth H3885 (8799) not: he is like H4911 (8738) the beasts H929 [that] perish H1820 (8738).
 This their way H1870 [is] their folly H3689: yet their posterity H310 approve H7521 (8799) their sayings H6310. Selah H5542.
 Like sheep H6629 they are laid H8371 (8804) in the grave H7585; death H4194 shall feed H7462 (8799) on them; and the upright H3477 shall have dominion H7287 (8799) over them in the morning H1242; and their beauty H6697 (8675) H6736 shall consume H1086 (8763) in the grave H7585 from their dwelling H2073.
 But God H430 will redeem H6299 (8799) my soul H5315 from the power H3027 of the grave H7585: for he shall receive H3947 (8799) me. Selah H5542.
 Be not thou afraid H3372 (8799) when one H376 is made rich H6238 (8686), when the glory H3519 of his house H1004 is increased H7235 (8799);
 For when he dieth H4194 he shall carry nothing away H3947 (8799): his glory H3519 shall not descend H3381 (8799) after H310 him.
 Though while he lived H2416 he blessed H1288 (8762) his soul H5315: and [men] will praise H3034 (8686) thee, when thou doest well H3190 (8686) to thyself.
 He shall go H935 (8799) to the generation H1755 of his fathers H1; they shall never H3808 H5331 see H7200 (8799) light H216.
 Man H120 [that is] in honour H3366, and understandeth H995 (8799) not, is like H4911 (8738) the beasts H929 [that] perish H1820 (8738).
Young’s Literal Translation
Psalm 49 (YLT)
 Hear this, all ye peoples, Give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world.
 Both low and high, together rich and needy.
 My mouth speaketh wise things, And the meditations of my heart are things of understanding.
 I incline to a simile mine ear, I open with a harp my riddle:
 Why do I fear in days of evil? The iniquity of my supplanters doth compass me.
 Those trusting on their wealth, And in the multitude of their riches, Do shew themselves foolish.
 A brother doth no one at all ransom, He doth not give to God his atonement.
 And precious is the redemption of their soul, And it hath ceased-to the age.
 And still he liveth for ever, He seeth not the pit.
 For he seeth wise men die, Together the foolish and brutish perish, And have left to others their wealth.
 Their heart is: Their houses are to the age, Their tabernacles to all generations. They proclaimed their names over the lands.
 And man in honour doth not remain, He hath been like the beasts, they have been cut off.
 This their way is folly for them, And their posterity with their sayings are pleased. Selah.
 As sheep for Sheol they have set themselves, Death doth afflict them, And the upright rule over them in the morning, And their form is for consumption. Sheol is a dwelling for him.
 Only, God doth ransom my soul from the hand of Sheol, For He doth receive me. Selah.
 Fear not, when one maketh wealth, When the honour of his house is abundant,
 For at his death he receiveth nothing, His honour goeth not down after him.
 For his soul in his life he blesseth, (And they praise thee when thou dost well for thyself.)
 It cometh to the generation of his fathers, For ever they see not the light.
 Man in honour, who understandest not, Hath been like the beasts, they have been cut off!
