13 This is the way of those who are arrogant,
and of their followers,
who approve of their words.[a](A)Selah
14 Like sheep they are headed for Sheol;
Death will shepherd them.
The upright will rule over them in the morning,(B)
and their form will waste away in Sheol,[b]
far from their lofty abode.(C)
15 But God will redeem my life
from the power of Sheol,
for He will take me.(D)Selah
