Psalm 49

NAS 1 Hear this, all peoples; Give ear, all inhabitants of the world, NIV 1 Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who live in this world, NAS 2 Both low and high , Rich and poor together. NIV 2 both low and high, rich and poor alike: NAS 3 My mouth will speak wisdom, And the meditation of my heart will be understanding. NIV 3 My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the meditation of my heart will give you understanding. NAS 4 I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will express my riddle on the harp. NIV 4 I will turn my ear to a proverb; with the harp I will expound my riddle: NAS 5 Why should I fear in days of adversity, When the iniquity of my foes surrounds me, NIV 5 Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers surround me— NAS 6 Even those who trust in their wealth And boast in the abundance of their riches? NIV 6 those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches? NAS 7 No man can by any means redeem his brother Or give to God a ransom for him- NIV 7 No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them— NAS 8 For the redemption of his soul is costly, And he should cease trying forever - NIV 8 the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough— NAS 9 That he should live on eternally, That he should not undergo decay. NIV 9 so that they should live on forever and not see decay. NAS 10 For he sees that even wise men die; The stupid and the senseless alike perish And leave their wealth to others. NIV 10 For all can see that the wise die, that the foolish and the senseless also perish, leaving their wealth to others. NAS 11 Their inner thought is that their houses are forever And their dwelling places to all generations; They have called their lands after their own names. NIV 11 Their tombs will remain their houses forever, their dwellings for endless generations, though they had named lands after themselves. NAS 12 But man in his pomp will not endure; He is like the beasts that perish. NIV 12 People, despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish. NAS 13 This is the way of those who are foolish, And of those after them who approve their words. Selah. NIV 13 This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings. NAS 14 As sheep they are appointed for Sheol; Death shall be their shepherd; And the upright shall rule over them in the morning, And their form shall be for Sheol to consume So that they have no habitation. NIV 14 They are like sheep and are destined to die; death will be their shepherd (but the upright will prevail over them in the morning). Their forms will decay in the grave, far from their princely mansions. NAS 15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol, For He will receive me. Selah. NIV 15 But God will redeem me from the realm of the dead; he will surely take me to himself. NAS 16 Do not be afraid when a man becomes rich, When the glory of his house is increased; NIV 16 Do not be overawed when others grow rich, when the splendor of their houses increases; NAS 17 For when he dies he will carry nothing away; His glory will not descend after him. NIV 17 for they will take nothing with them when they die, their splendor will not descend with them. NAS 18 Though while he lives he congratulates himself - And though men praise you when you do well for yourself- NIV 18 Though while they live they count themselves blessed— and people praise you when you prosper— NAS 19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; They will never see the light. NIV 19 they will join those who have gone before them, who will never again see the light of life. NAS 20 Man in his pomp, yet without understanding, Is like the beasts that perish. NIV 20 People who have wealth but lack understanding are like the beasts that perish.
