Psalm 48 : 2-3, 6-11
Hear this, all you peoples! Listen, all you inhabitants of the world, high and low together, rich and poor alike!
Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers ring me round – those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches?
For no ransom avails for one’s life; there is no price one can give to God for it. For redeeming one’s life demands too high a price, and all is lost forever. Who can remain forever alive and never see the grave?
For we see that the wise die, and pass away like the fool and the stupid, leaving to others their fortune and wealth.
