PS 48:1  Unto the end, a psalm for the sons of Core.

PS 48:2  Hear these things, all ye nations: give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world.

PS 48:3  All you that are earthborn, and you sons of men: both rich and poor together.

PS 48:4  My mouth shall speak wisdom: and the meditation of my heart understanding.

PS 48:5  I will incline my ear to a parable; I will open my proposition on the psaltery.

PS 48:6  Why shall I fear in the evil day? the iniquity of my heel shall encompass me.

PS 48:7  They that trust in their own strength, and glory in the multitude of their riches,

PS 48:8  No brother can redeem, nor shall man redeem: he shall not give to God his ransom,

PS 48:9  Nor the price of the redemption of his soul: and shall labour for ever,

PS 48:10  and shall still live unto the end.

PS 48:11  He shall not see destruction, when he shall see the wise dying: the senseless and the fool shall perish together: And they shall leave their riches to strangers:

PS 48:12  and their sepulchres shall be their houses for ever. Their dwelling places to all generations: they have called their lands by their names.

PS 48:13  And man when he was in honour did not understand; he is compared to senseless beasts, and is become like to them.

PS 48:14  This way of theirs is a stumblingblock to them: and afterwards they shall delight in their mouth.

PS 48:15  They are laid in hell like sheep: death shall feed upon them. And the just shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their help shall decay in hell from their glory.

PS 48:16  But God will redeem my soul from the hand of hell, when he shall receive me.

PS 48:17  Be not thou afraid, when a man shall be made rich, and when the glory of his house shall be increased.

PS 48:18  For when he shall die he shall take nothing away; nor shall his glory descend with him.

PS 48:19  For in his lifetime his soul will be blessed: and he will praise thee when thou shalt do well to him.

PS 48:20  He shall go in to the generations of his fathers: and he shall never see light.

PS 48:21  Man when he was in honour did not understand: he hath been compared to senseless beasts, and made like to them.
