Psalm 49:1-7. Common English Bible (CEB)

1  Listen to this, all you people! Listen closely, all you citizens of the world-

  people of every kind, rich and poor alike!

  My mouth speaks wisdom;  my heart's meditation is full of insight.

  I will pay close attention to a proverb; I will explain my riddle on the lyre.

  Why should I be afraid in times of  trouble, when the wrongdoing of my bullies  engulfs me—

  those people who trust in their fortunes and boast of their fantastic wealth?

  Wealth? It can't save a single person!  It can't pay a life's ransom-price to God.
