PSALM 49:12-20

A (12,13) NEVERTHELESS MAN BEING IN HONOUR abideth not: HE IS LIKE THE BEASTS THAT PERISH. This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

B (14,15) 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. But God will redeem MY SOUL from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

C (16) Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when THE GLORY of his house is increased;

C1 (17) For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: (17) HIS GLORY shall not descend after him.

B1(18,19) Though while he lived he blessed HIS SOUL: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself. He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

A1 (20) MAN THAT IS IN HONOUR, and understandeth not, IS LIKE THE BEASTS THAT PERISH.
