1 [For the end, a Psalm for the sons of Core.] Hear these words, all ye nations, hearken, all ye that dwell upon the earth: 2 both the sons of mean men, and sons of [great] men; the rich and poor [man] together. 3 My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall bring [forth] understanding. 4 I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my riddle on the harp. 5 Wherefore should I fear in the evil day? the iniquity of my heel shall compass me. 6 They that trust in their strength, and boast themselves in the multitude of their wealth-- 7 A brother does not redeem, shall a man redeem? he shall not give to God a ransom for himself, 8 or the price of the redemption of his soul, though he labour for ever, 9 and live to the end, [so] that he should not see corruption. 10 When he shall see wise men dying, the fool and the senseless one shall perish together; and they shall leave their wealth to strangers. 11 And their sepulchres are their houses for ever, [even] their tabernacles to all generations: they have called their lands after their own names. 12 And man being in honour, understands not: he is compared to the senseless cattle, and is like to them. 13 This their way is an offence to them: yet afterwards men will commend their sayings. Pause. 14 They have laid [them] as sheep in Hades; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning, and their help shall fail in Hades from their glory. 15 But God shall deliver my soul from the power of Hades, when he shall receive me. Pause. 16 Fear not when a man is enriched, and when the glory of his house is increased. 17 For he shall take nothing when he dies; neither shall his glory descend with him. 18 For his soul shall be blessed in his life: he shall give thanks to thee when thou dost well to him. 19 [Yet] he shall go in to the generation of his fathers; he shall never see light. 20 Man that is in honour, understands not: he is compared to the senseless cattle, and is like them. Εἰς τὸ τέλος· τοῖς υἱοῖς Κορὲ ψαλμός. - 2 ΑΚΟΥΣΑΤΕ ταῦτα, πάντα τὰ ἔθνη, ἐνωτίσασθε πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν οἰκουμένην, 3 οἵ τε γηγενεῖς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων, ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ πλούσιος καὶ πένης. 4 τὸ στόμα μου λαλήσει σοφίαν καὶ ἡ μελέτη τῆς καρδίας μου σύνεσιν· 5 κλινῶ εἰς παραβολὴν τὸ οὖς μου, ἀνοίξω ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ τὸ πρόβλημά μου. 6 ἱνατί φοβοῦμαι ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πονηρᾷ; ἡ ἀνομία τῆς πτέρνης μου κυκλώσει με. 7 οἱ πεποιθότες ἐπὶ τῇ δυνάμει αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ πλήθει τοῦ πλούτου αὐτῶν καυχώμενοι, 8 ἀδελφὸς οὐ λυτροῦται, λυτρώσεται ἄνθρωπος; οὐ δώσει τῷ Θεῷ ἐξίλασμα ἑαυτοῦ 9 καὶ τὴν τιμὴν τῆς λυτρώσεως τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἐκοπίασεν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 10 καὶ ζήσεται εἰς τέλος· οὐκ ὄψεται καταφθοράν, 11 ὅταν ἴδῃ σοφοὺς ἀποθνήσκοντας. ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἄφρων καὶ ἄνους ἀπολοῦνται καὶ καταλείψουσιν ἀλλοτρίοις τὸν πλοῦτον αὐτῶν, 12 καὶ οἱ τάφοι αὐτῶν οἰκίαι αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, σκηνώματα αὐτῶν εἰς γενεὰν καὶ γενεάν. ἐπεκαλέσαντο τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τῶν γαιῶν αὐτῶν. 13 καὶ ἄνθρωπος ἐν τιμῇ ὢν οὐ συνῆκε, παρασυνεβλήθη τοῖς κτήνεσι τοῖς ἀνοήτοις καὶ ὡμοιώθη αὐτοῖς. 14 αὕτη ἡ ὁδὸς αὐτῶν σκάνδαλον αὐτοῖς, καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν εὐδοκήσουσι. (διάψαλμα). 15 ὡς πρόβατα ἐν ᾅδῃ ἔθεντο, θάνατος ποιμανεῖ αὐτούς· καὶ κατακυριεύσουσιν αὐτῶν οἱ εὐθεῖς τὸ πρωΐ, καὶ ἡ βοήθεια αὐτῶν παλαιωθήσεται ἐν τῷ ᾅδῃ, ἐκ τῆς δόξης αὐτῶν ἐξώσθησαν. 16 πλὴν ὁ Θεὸς λυτρώσεται τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ χειρὸς ᾅδου, ὅταν λαμβάνῃ με. (διάψαλμα). 17 μὴ φοβοῦ, ὅταν πλουτήσῃ ἄνθρωπος καὶ ὅταν πληθυνθῇ ἡ δόξα τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ· 18 ὅτι οὐκ ἐν τῷ ἀποθνήσκειν αὐτὸν λήψεται τὰ πάντα, οὐδὲ συγκαταβήσεται αὐτῷ ἡ δόξα αὐτοῦ. 19 ὅτι ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ζωῇ αὐτοῦ εὐλογηθήσεται· ἐξομολογήσεταί σοι, ὅταν ἀγαθύνῃς αὐτῷ. 20 εἰσελεύσεται ἕως γενεᾶς πατέρων αὐτοῦ, ἕως αἰῶνος οὐκ ὄψεται φῶς. 21 καὶ ἄνθρωπος ἐν τιμῇ ὢν οὐ συνῆκε, παρασυνεβλήθη τοῖς κτήνεσι τοῖς ἀνοήτοις καὶ ὡμοιώθη αὐτοῖς.
