February 18: Psalm 49; Numbers 5-7

Do not be afraid when a man becomes rich,
When the glory of his house increases;
For when he dies he will not take any of it;
His glory will not descend after him.
For while he lives he blesses his soul—
And men will praise you when you do well for yourself—
But his soul shall go to the generation of his fathers;
They will eternally not see light.
Man in his honor, but who does not understand,
Is like the animals that perish.
