People, despite their wealth…

People, despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish.

 וְאָדָם בִּיקָר בַּל־יָלִין נִמְשַׁל כַּבְּהֵמֹות נִדְמֽוּ׃

Do not be overawed when others grow rich, when the splendour of their houses increases;

אַל־תִּירָא כִּֽי־יַעֲשִׁר אִישׁ כִּֽי־יִרְבֶּה כְּבֹוד בֵּיתֹֽו׃

for they will take nothing with them when they die, their splendour will not descend with them.

כִּי לֹא בְמֹותֹו יִקַּח הַכֹּל לֹא־יֵרֵד אַחֲרָיו כְּבֹודֹֽו׃

Psalm 49:12, 16–17
