Don't have Faith in wealth and armies I was reading this psalm and I liked it and decide to go and translate it quick since its short and found the second to last sentence interesting. I guess like His Son was prophesied so is the fact that they would hide the truth. He wrote it all down and nothing is a surprise for Him. I also found many interesting things here that our current versions don't say. Verse 1 To the music director, the sons of Korah. A Psalm. Hear this all peoples and give your ear all you inhabitants of the earth, Verse 2 both low born and high born, rich and poor, Verse 3 My mouth will now declare wisdom My words will bring understanding to your heart and core. Verse 4 Listen to this proverb I am about to play the strings of your heart. Verse 5 Why in the world should you fear evil in the time when your iniquity has gone too far, and it now surrounds you? Verse 6 Because those who trust and boast in the strength of their armies or in their great wealth. Verse 7 They do not realize that they do not have enough strength to rescue or enough wealth to redeem their loved ones from the evil one the only One who can redeem and pay the ransom is the Son of Light. Verse 8 For the redemption of spirits is extraordinarily costly and one day it will cease and there will be no more ransoms paid. Verse 9 The Father would like that all be restored to Life and continue with Him for all Eternity and not see the corruption of Hell (the eternal fire). (I am going to call what the Jews call Sheol as Hades and that is where people go for the first death.) Verse 10 For He sees the wise, the intelligent, and the shrewd together with the fool, the arrogant, and the cruel die and perish alike and leave their estates for another. Verse 11 They think that what they build will last forever and will last from generation to generation and they even put their name on it seeking fame so that all the land will know it. Verse 12 But these men and women have no value whatsoever and are as worthless as any animal and will perish just like an animal. Verse 13 And this is the way of the stupid and foolish and all who follow this road approve and gladly lead others to their folly. Selah Verse 14 Like sheep they let Death teach them how to go to hell, but the dawn of a new age will come when the Anointed One will rule over them with the Children of Light and they will destroy the beauty of all their idols and all those who worship and exalt idols will go with their idols to the grave. Verse 15 Truly my Aluwah (The Mighty ONE) will pay the ransom for my spirit to Death because He will carry me to be with Him. Selah Verse 16 Do not become afraid when He makes you wealthy and when mankind starts to increase greatly, it is done for the splendor of the household of YAHUWAH to be displayed to all. Verse 17 Because Death will not let you take anything with you down to Hades not even one of your riches will go with you. Verse 18 But some of you will live by your passions and desires and all men will praise them for it, they will forget to confess all their sins or to bow down to the ONE who will save them from the living death (spiritual death), first death (physical death), and the second death (thrown in the eternal fire after being judged on Judgement Day). Verse 19 It will come to pass that the last generation at the End of Days will learn what their ancestors have done and not till then will they see the Light. Verse 20 All men and women have no value whatsoever until they can understand how to read and create parables till then they are just beasts that will perish with all the other beasts.
