Wherefore should I fear in ddthe days of evil,

When ethe iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

They that ftrust in their wealth,

And boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

None of them gcan by any means redeem his brother,

Nor hgive to God ia ransom for him:

(For kthe redemption of their soul is precious,

And it ceaseth for ever:)

That he should still live for ever,

And lnot see corruption.

10  For he seeth that mwise men die,

Likewise the mfool and the nbrutish person perish,

And oleave their wealth to others.

11  pTheir inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever,

And their dwelling places to all generations;

They qcall their lands after their own names.

12  Nevertheless rman being in honour abideth not:

sHe is like the beasts that perish.

13  This their way is their ssfolly:

Yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

14  Like sheep they are laid in the grave;

Death shall feed on them;

And the upright tshall have dominion over them in the morning;

And utheir ||beauty shall consume ||in the grave from their dwelling.

15  But God wwill redeem my soul from the power of ||the grave:

For xhe shall receive me. Selah.
