13 See what happens to those who trust in themselves,
    the fate of those[a] who are satisfied with their wealth—
14 they are doomed to die like sheep,
    and Death will be their shepherd.

    as their bodies quickly decay
    in the world of the dead far from their homes.[b]
15 But God will rescue me;
    he will save me from the power of death.
