Psalms 49:16-20

16 Be not afraid when a man becomes rich,
when the glory of his house increases.
17 a  For when he dies he will b  carry nothing away;
his glory will not go down after him.
18For though, while he lives, he counts himself c  blessed
—and though you get praise when you do well for yourself—
19his soul will d  go to the generation of his fathers,
who will never again e  see light.
20 f  Man in his pomp yet without understanding is like the beasts that perish.
