The King James Version Bible

Psalms 49:14-20

  1. Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

  2. But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

  3. Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

  4. For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

  5. Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

  6. He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

  7. Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
