49:14 -- 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.
49:15 -- But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
49:16 -- Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
49:17 -- For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
49:18 -- Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
49:19 -- He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
49:20 -- Man that is in honor, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

Psalms 13: 1 - 6

13:1 -- To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? forever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
13:2 -- How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?
13:3 -- Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;
13:4 -- Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
13:5 -- But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
13:6 -- I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.
