13 This their way uttereth their foolishness; yet their posterity [a]delight in their talk. Selah.

14 [b]Like sheep they lie in grave; [c]death devoureth them; and the righteous shall have domination over them in the [d]morning; for their beauty shall consume, when they shall go from their house to grave.

15 But God shall deliver my soul from the power of the grave; [e]for he will receive me. Selah.
