Book of Psalms Chapter 49

PSALMS 49:1 Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:

PSALMS 49:2 Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

PSALMS 49:3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

PSALMS 49:4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.

PSALMS 49:5 Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?

PSALMS 49:6 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

PSALMS 49:7 None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

PSALMS 49:8 (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

PSALMS 49:9 That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

PSALMS 49:10 For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

PSALMS 49:11 Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.

PSALMS 49:12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

PSALMS 49:13 This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

PSALMS 49:14 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.

PSALMS 49:15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.

PSALMS 49:16 Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

PSALMS 49:17 For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

PSALMS 49:18 Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.

PSALMS 49:19 He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

PSALMS 49:20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
