2 Hear these things, all nations. Pay attention, all inhabitants of the world:
3 whoever is earth-born, you sons of men, together as one, the rich and the poor.
4 My mouth will speak wisdom, and the meditation of my heart will speak prudence.
5 I will incline my ear to a parable. I will open my case with the psaltery.
6 Why should I fear in the evil day? The iniquity at my heel will surround me.
7 Those who trust in their own strength and who glory in the multitude of their riches,
8 no brother redeems, nor will man buy back. He will not give to God his appeasement,
9 nor the price for the redemption of his soul. And he will labor continuously,
10 and he will still live, until the end.
11 He will not see death, when he sees the wise dying: the foolish and the senseless will perish together. And they will leave their riches to strangers.
