The Holy Bible - The Psalms, Chapter 49 (Latin)
1(48:2)Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world:
2(48:3)Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
3(48:4)My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.
4(48:5)I will incline mine ear to a parable: I will open my dark saying upon the harp.
5(48:6)Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of my heels shall compass me about?
6(48:7)They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;
7(48:8)None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
8(48:9)(For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
9(48:10)That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
10(48:11)For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
11(48:12)Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
12(48:13)Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.
13(48:14)This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
14(48:15)Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
15(48:16)But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
16(48:17)Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
17(48:18)For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
18(48:19)Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
19(48:20)He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
20(48:21)Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
1victori filiorum Core canticum
2audite hoc omnes populi auribus percipite universi habitatores occidentis
3tam filii Adam quam filii singulorum simul dives et pauper
4os meum loquitur sapientias et meditatio cordis mei prudentias
5inclino ad parabulam aurem meam aperiam in cithara enigma meum
6quare timebo in diebus mali iniquitas calcanei mei circumdabit me
7qui fiduciam habent in fortitudine sua et in multitudine divitiarum suarum superbiunt
8fratrem redimens non redimet vir nec dabit Deo propitiationem pro eo
9neque pretium redemptionis animae eorum sed quiescet in saeculo
10et vivet ultra in sempiternum
11et non videbit interitum cum viderit sapientes morientes simul insipiens et indoctus peribunt et derelinquent alienis divitias suas
12interiora sua domus suas in saeculo tabernacula sua in generatione et generatione vocaverunt nominibus suis terras suas
13et homo in honore non commorabitur adsimilatus est iumentis et exaequatus est
14haec est via insipientiae eorum et post eos iuxta os eorum current semper
15quasi grex in inferno positi sunt mors pascet eos et subicient eos recti in matutino et figura eorum conteretur in inferno post habitaculum suum
16verumtamen Deus redimet animam meam de manu inferi cum adsumpserit me semper
17noli timere cum ditatus fuerit vir cum multiplicata fuerit gloria domus eius
18neque enim moriens tollet omnia nec descendet post eum gloria eius
19quia animae suae in vita sua benedicet laudabunt inquient te cum benefeceris tibi
20intrabit usque ad generationes patrum suorum usque ad finem non videbunt lucem
21homo cum in honore esset non intellexit conparavit se iumentis et silebitur
