Hear this, all you peoples.
Listen, all you inhabitants of the world,
3גַּם־בְּנֵ֣י אָ֭דָם גַּם־בְּנֵי־אִ֑ישׁ יַ֝֗חַד עָשִׁ֥יר וְאֶבְיֽוֹן׃Ps 49:2

My heart shall utter understanding.

I will open 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—
8אָ֗ח לֹא־פָדֹ֣ה יִפְדֶּ֣ה אִ֑ישׁ לֹא־יִתֵּ֖ן לֵאלֹהִ֣ים כָּפְרֽוֹ׃Ps 49:7
none of them can by any means redeem his brother,
nor give God a ransom for him.

no payment is ever enough,
10וִֽיחִי־ע֥וֹד לָנֶ֑צַח לֹ֖א יִרְאֶ֣ה הַשָּֽׁחַת׃Ps 49:9
That he should live on forever,
that he should not see corruption.
11כִּ֤י יִרְאֶ֨ה ׀ חֲכָ֘מִ֤ים יָמ֗וּתוּ יַ֤חַד כְּסִ֣יל וָבַ֣עַר יֹאבֵ֑דוּ וְעָזְב֖וּ לַאֲחֵרִ֣ים חֵילָֽם׃Ps 49:10
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.
13וְאָדָ֣ם בִּ֭יקָר בַּל־יָלִ֑ין נִמְשַׁ֖ל כַּבְּהֵמ֣וֹת נִדְמֽוּ׃Ps 49:12
But man, despite his riches, doesn’t endure.
He is like the animals that perish.
14זֶ֣ה דַ֭רְכָּם כֵּ֣סֶל לָ֑מוֹ וְאַחֲרֵיהֶ֓ם ׀ בְּפִיהֶ֖ם יִרְצ֣וּ סֶֽלָה׃Ps 49:13
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.

far from their mansion.
16אַךְ־אֱלֹהִ֗ים יִפְדֶּ֣ה נַ֭פְשִׁי מִֽיַּד־שְׁא֑וֹל כִּ֖י יִקָּחֵ֣נִי סֶֽלָה׃Ps 49:15
But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol,
for he will receive me.

Don’t be afraid when a man is made rich,
when the glory of his house is increased.
18כִּ֤י לֹ֣א בְ֭מוֹתוֹ יִקַּ֣ח הַכֹּ֑ל לֹא־יֵרֵ֖ד אַחֲרָ֣יו כְּבוֹדֽוֹ׃Ps 49:17
For when he dies he shall carry nothing away.

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.
