Salmos 48

1 The title of the eiyte and fourtithe salm. To victorie, a salm to the sones of Chore.

2 Alle ye folkis, here these thingis; alle ye that dwellen in the world, perseyue with eeris.

3 Alle the sones of erthe and the sones of men; togidere the riche man and the pore in to oon.

4 Mi mouth schal speke wisdom; and the thenkyng of myn herte schal speke prudence.

5 I schal bouwe doun myn eere in to a parable; Y schal opene my resoun set forth in a sautree.

6 Whi schal Y drede in the yuel dai? the wickidnesse of myn heele schal cumpasse me.

7 Whiche tristen in her owne vertu; and han glorie in the multitude of her richessis.

8 A brother ayenbieth not, schal a man ayenbie? and he schal not yyue to God his plesyng.

9 And he schal not yyue the prijs of raunsum of his soule; and he schal trauele with outen ende,

10 and he schal lyue yit in to the ende.

11 He schal not se perischyng, whanne he schal se wise men diynge; the vnwise man and fool schulen perische togidere. And thei schulen leeue her richessis to aliens;

12 and the sepulcris of hem ben the housis of hem with outen ende. The tabernaclis of hem ben in generacioun and generacioun; thei clepiden her names in her londis.

13 A man, whanne he was in honour, vndurstood not; he is comparisound to vnwise beestis, and he is maad lijk to tho.

14 This weie of hem is sclaundir to hem; and aftirward thei schulen plese togidere in her mouth.

15 As scheep thei ben set in helle; deth schal gnawe hem. And iust men schulen be lordis of hem in the morewtid; and the helpe of hem schal wexe eld in helle, for the glorie of hem.

16 Netheles God schal ayenbie my soule from the power of helle; whanne he schal take me.

17 Drede thou not, whanne a man is maad riche; and the glorie of his hows is multiplied.

18 For whanne he schal die, he schal not take alle thingis; and his glorie schal not go doun with him.

19 For his soule schal be blessid in his lijf; he schal knouleche to thee, whanne thou hast do wel to hym.

20 He schal entre til in to the generaciouns of hise fadris; and til in to with outen ende he schal not se liyt.

21 A man, whanne he was in honour, vndurstood not; he is comparisound to vnwise beestis, and is maad lijk to tho.
