Psalm 49:5-20 ESV
Why should I fear in times of trouble, when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me, [6] those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches? [7] Truly no man can ransom another, or give to God the price of his life, [8] for the ransom of their life is costly and can never suffice, [9] that he should live on forever and never see the pit. [10] For he sees that even the wise die; the fool and the stupid alike must perish and leave their wealth to others. [11] Their graves are their homes forever, their dwelling places to all generations, though they called lands by their own names. [12] Man in his pomp will not remain; he is like the beasts that perish. [13] This is the path of those who have foolish confidence; yet after them people approve of their boasts. Selah [14] Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol; death shall be their shepherd, and the upright shall rule over them in the morning. Their form shall be consumed in Sheol, with no place to dwell. [15] But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol, for he will receive me. Selah [16] Be not afraid when a man becomes rich, when the glory of his house increases. [17] For when he dies he will carry nothing away; his glory will not go down after him. [18] For though, while he lives, he counts himself blessed -and though you get praise when you do well for yourself- [19] his soul will go to the generation of his fathers, who will never again see light. [20] Man in his pomp yet without understanding is like the beasts that perish.
