Their tombs1 will remain their housesa forever, their dwellings for endless generations,2 though they hadb named3 lands after themselves.
But man, despite his riches, does not endure;4 he isc like the beasts that perish.513

Like sheep they are destined7 for the grave,d8 and death will feed on them. The upright will rule9 over them in the morning; their forms will decay in the grave,e far from their princely mansions.
But God will redeem my lifef from the grave;10 he will surely take me to himself.11 "Selah"
