“For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the foole, and the brutish person perish, and leaue their wealth to others.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. None of them can by any meanes redeeme his brother, nor giue to God a ransome for him: 8. (For the redemption of their soule is precious, and it ceaseth for euer.) 9. That he should still liue for euer, and not see corruption. 10. For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the foole, and the brutish person perish, and leaue their wealth to others. 11. Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for euer, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their owne names. 12. Neuerthelesse man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beastes that perish. 13. This their way is their follie; yet their posteritie approue their sayings. Selah.
