 Psalms << Ps : 48 >>The Septuagint (Brenton)

1 Εἰς τὸ τέλος· τοῖς υἱοῖς Κορε ψαλμός. Futility of Riches. Psalm 49(v48)For the end a Psalm for the sons of Core.
2 Ἀκούσατε ταῦτα, πάντα τὰ ἔθνη,
ἐνωτίσασθε, πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες τὴν οἰκουμένην,
 Hear these words all you nations listen all you that dwell upon the earth:
3 οἵ τε γηγενεῖς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων,
ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ πλούσιος καὶ πένης.
 both the sons of mean men, and sons of great men;
the rich and poor man together.
4 τὸ στόμα μου λαλήσει σοφίαν,
καὶ ἡ μελέτη τῆς καρδίας μου σύνεσιν·
 My mouth shall speak of wisdom;
and the meditation of my heart shall bring forth understanding.
5 κλινῶ εἰς παραβολὴν τὸ οὖς μου,
ἀνοίξω ἐν ψαλτηρίῳ τὸ πρόβλημά μου.
 I will incline mine ear to a parable:
I will open my riddle on the harp.
6 ἵνα τί φοβοῦμαι ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πονηρᾷ;
ἡ ἀνομία τῆς πτέρνης μου κυκλώσει με.
 Why should I fear in the evil day?
the iniquity of my heel shall compass me.
7 οἱ πεποιθότες ἐπὶ τῇ δυνάμει αὐτῶν
καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ πλήθει τοῦ πλούτου αὐτῶν καυχώμενοι,
 They that trust in their strength,
and boast themselves in the multitude of their wealth -
8 ἀδελφὸς οὐ λυτροῦται· λυτρώσεται ἄνθρωπος;
οὐ δώσει τῷ θεῷ ἐξίλασμα αὐτοῦ,
 A brother does not redeem, shall a man redeem?
he shall not give to God a ransom for himself,
9 καὶ τὴν τιμὴν τῆς λυτρώσεως τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ.
 or the price of the redemption of his soul, though he labour for ever,
10 καὶ ἐκόπασεν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ ζήσεται εἰς τέλος,
ὅτι οὐκ ὄψεται καταφθοράν, ὅταν ἴδῃ σοφοὺς ἀποθνῄσκοντας.
 and live to the end, so that he should not see corruption.
11 ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτὸ ἄφρων καὶ ἄνους ἀπολοῦνται,
καὶ καταλείψουσιν ἀλλοτρίοις τὸν πλοῦτον αὐτῶν,
 When he shall see wise men dying,
the fool and the senseless one shall perish together;
and they shall leave their wealth to strangers.
12 καὶ οἱ τάφοι αὐτῶν οἰκίαι αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα,
σκηνώματα αὐτῶν εἰς γενεὰν καὶ γενεάν.
ἐπεκαλέσαντο τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τῶν γαιῶν αὐτῶν.
 And their sepulchres are their houses for ever,
even their tabernacles to all generations:
they have called their lands after their own names.
13 καὶ ἄνθρωπος ἐν τιμῇ ὢν οὐ συνῆκεν·
παρασυνεβλήθη τοῖς κτήνεσιν τοῖς ἀνοήτοις καὶ ὡμοιώθη αὐτοῖς.
 And man being in honour, understands not:
he is compared to the senseless cattle, and is like to them.
14 αὕτη ἡ ὁδὸς αὐτῶν σκάνδαλον αὐτοῖς,
καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτῶν εὐδοκήσουσιν. διάψαλμα.
 This their way is an offence to them:
yet afterwards men will commend their sayings.
15 ὡς πρόβατα ἐν ᾅδῃ ἔθεντο, θάνατος ποιμαίνει αὐτούς·
καὶ κατακυριεύσουσιν αὐτῶν οἱ εὐθεῖς τὸ πρωί,
καὶ ἡ βοήθεια αὐτῶν παλαιωθήσεται ἐν τῷ ᾅδῃ ἐκ τῆς δό ξης αὐτῶν.
 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.
16 πλὴν ὁ θεὸς λυτρώσεται τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ χειρὸς ᾅδου, ὅταν λαμβάνῃ με.
 But God shall deliver my soul from the power of Hades, when he shall receive me.
17 μὴ φοβοῦ ὅταν πλουτήσῃ ἄνθρωπος,
καὶ ὅταν πληθυνθῇ ἡ δόξα τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ·
 Fear not when a man is enriched,
and when the glory of his house is increased.
18 ὅτι οὐκ ἐν τῷ ἀποθνῄσκειν αὐτὸν λήμψεται τὰ πάντα,
οὐδὲ συγκαταβήσεται αὐτῷ ἡ δόξα αὐτοῦ.
 For he shall take nothing when he dies;
neither shall his glory descend with him.
19 ὅτι ἡ ψυχὴ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ζωῇ αὐτοῦ εὐλογηθήσεται·
ἐξομολογήσεταί σοι, ὅταν ἀγαθύνῃς αὐτῷ.
 For his soul shall be blessed in his life:
he shall give thanks to you when you do well to him.
20 εἰσελεύσεται ἕως γενεᾶς πατέρων αὐτοῦ,
ἕως αἰῶνος οὐκ ὄψεται φῶς.
 Yet he shall go in to the generation of his fathers;
he shall never see light.
21 ἄνθρωπος ἐν τιμῇ ὢν οὐ συνῆκεν,
παρασυνεβλήθη τοῖς κτήνεσιν τοῖς ἀνοήτοις καὶ ὡμοιώθη αὐτοῖς.
 Man that is in honour, understands not:
he is compared to the senseless cattle, and is like them.
