Psalms 49:12  (King James Version)
Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

in honour
20 ; 39:5 82:7 James 1:10 James 1:11 ; 1 Peter 1:24

The word {yalin,} rendered abideth, signifies to lodge for a night. Man's continuance in the world, or in honour or distinction, resembles a traveller's lodging at an inn, whence he removes in the morning; and is frequently far more transient and evanescent.

Ecclesiastes 3:18-21 ; 9:12
