Psalms 49:16-17

Context

49:16 Do not be afraid when a man becomes rich 1 

and his wealth multiplies! 2 

49:17 For he will take nothing with him when he dies;

his wealth will not follow him down into the grave. 3 

1 sn When a man becomes rich. Why would people fear such a development? The acquisition of wealth makes individuals powerful and enables them to oppress others (see vv. 5-6).

2 tn Heb “when the glory of his house grows great.”

3 tn Heb “his glory will not go down after him.”
