Chapter 49

1
Hear this, all you peoples. Listen, all you inhabitants of the world,
2
both low and high, rich and poor together.
3
My mouth will speak words of wisdom. My heart will utter understanding.
4
I will incline my ear to a proverb. I will solve my riddle on the harp.
5
Why should I fear in the days of evil, when iniquity at my heels surrounds me?
6
Those who trust in their wealth, and boast in the multitude of their riches—
7
none of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give God a ransom for him.
8
For the redemption of their life is costly, no payment is ever enough,
9
that he should live on forever, that he should not see corruption.
10
For he sees that wise men die; likewise the fool and the senseless perish, and leave their wealth to others.
