Why should I fear in days of adversity, When the iniquity of my foes surrounds me,
Even those who trust in their wealth And boast in the abundance of their riches?

Their inner thought is [that] their houses are forever [And] their dwelling places to all generations; They have called their lands after their own names.
But man in [his] pomp will not endure; He is like the beasts that perish.
This is the way of those who are foolish, And of those after them who approve their words. Selah.
