 CATSS LXX World English Bible‎ / Wiki English Translation‏
1Gr. Psalm 48 (Heb. 49)
εἰς τὸ τέλος τοῖς υἱοῖς Κορε ψαλμός
Ps 49:0
¶For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by the sons of Korah.
2ἀκούσατε ταῦτα πάντα τὰ ἔθνη ἐνωτίσασθε πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν οἰκουμένηνPs 49:1
Hear this, all you peoples.
Listen, all you inhabitants of the world,
3οἵ τε γηγενεῖς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ πλούσιος καὶ πένηςPs 49:2
both low and high,
rich and poor together.
4τὸ στόμα μου λαλήσει σοφίαν καὶ μελέτη τῆς καρδίας μου σύνεσινPs 49:3
My mouth will speak words of wisdom.
My heart shall utter understanding.
5κλινῶ εἰς παραβολὴν τὸ οὖς μου ἀνοίξω ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ τὸ πρόβλημά μουPs 49:4
I will incline my ear to a proverb.
I will open my riddle on the harp.
6ἵνα τί φοβοῦμαι ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πονηρᾷ ἀνομία τῆς πτέρνης μου κυκλώσει μεPs 49:5
Why should I fear in the days of evil,
when iniquity at my heels surrounds me?
7οἱ πεποιθότες ἐπὶ τῇ δυνάμει αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ πλήθει τοῦ πλούτου αὐτῶν καυχώμενοιPs 49:6
Those who trust in their wealth,
and boast in the multitude of their riches—
8ἀδελφὸς οὐ λυτροῦται λυτρώσεται ἄνθρωπος οὐ δώσει τῷ θεῷ ἐξίλασμα αὐτοῦPs 49:7
none of them can by any means redeem his brother,
nor give God a ransom for him.
9καὶ τὴν τιμὴν τῆς λυτρώσεως τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦPs 49:8
For the redemption of their life is costly,
no payment is ever enough,
10καὶ ἐκόπασεν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ ζήσεται εἰς τέλος ὅτι οὐκ ὄψεται καταφθοράν ὅταν ἴδῃ σοφοὺς ἀποθνῄσκονταςPs 49:9
That he should live on forever,
that he should not see corruption.
11ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἄφρων καὶ ἄνους ἀπολοῦνται καὶ καταλείψουσιν ἀλλοτρίοις τὸν πλοῦτον αὐτῶνPs 49:10
For he sees that wise men die;
likewise the fool and the senseless perish,
and leave their wealth to others.
12καὶ οἱ τάφοι αὐτῶν οἰκίαι αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα σκηνώματα αὐτῶν εἰς γενεὰν καὶ γενεάν ἐπεκαλέσαντο τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τῶν γαιῶν αὐτῶνPs 49:11
Their inward thought is that their houses will endure forever,
and their dwelling places to all generations.
They name their lands after themselves.
13καὶ ἄνθρωπος ἐν τιμῇ ὢν οὐ συνῆκεν παρασυνεβλήθη τοῖς κτήνεσιν τοῖς ἀνοήτοις καὶ ὡμοιώθη αὐτοῖςPs 49:12
But man, despite his riches, doesn’t endure.
He is like the animals that perish.
14αὕτη ὁδὸς αὐτῶν σκάνδαλον αὐτοῖς καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν εὐδοκήσουσιν διάψαλμαPs 49:13
This is the destiny of those who are foolish,
and of those who approve their sayings.
15ὡς πρόβατα ἐν ᾅδῃ ἔθεντο θάνατος ποιμαίνει αὐτούς καὶ κατακυριεύσουσιν αὐτῶν οἱ εὐθεῖς τὸ πρωί καὶ βοήθεια αὐτῶν παλαιωθήσεται ἐν τῷ ᾅδῃ ἐκ τῆς δόξης αὐτῶνPs 49:14
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.
16πλὴν θεὸς λυτρώσεται τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ χειρὸς ᾅδου ὅταν λαμβάνῃ με διάψαλμαPs 49:15
But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol,
for he will receive me.
17μὴ φοβοῦ ὅταν πλουτήσῃ ἄνθρωπος καὶ ὅταν πληθυνθῇ δόξα τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦPs 49:16
Don’t be afraid when a man is made rich,
when the glory of his house is increased.
18ὅτι οὐκ ἐν τῷ ἀποθνῄσκειν αὐτὸν λήμψεται τὰ πάντα οὐδὲ συγκαταβήσεται αὐτῷ δόξα αὐτοῦPs 49:17
For when he dies he shall carry nothing away.
His glory shall not descend after him.
19ὅτι ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ζωῇ αὐτοῦ εὐλογηθήσεται ἐξομολογήσεταί σοι ὅταν ἀγαθύνῃς αὐτῷPs 49:18
Though while he lived he blessed his soul—
and men praise you when you do well for yourself—
20εἰσελεύσεται ἕως γενεᾶς πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος οὐκ ὄψεται φῶςPs 49:19
he shall go to the generation of his fathers.
They shall never see the light.
21ἄνθρωπος ἐν τιμῇ ὢν οὐ συνῆκεν παρασυνεβλήθη τοῖς κτήνεσιν τοῖς ἀνοήτοις καὶ ὡμοιώθη αὐτοῖςPs 49:20
A man who has riches without understanding,
is like the animals that perish.
