13 This is the fate of those who are foolish
    and of those who correct their words after they speak.

14 Like sheep, they are destined for the realm of the dead,[a]
    with death as their shepherd.
The upright will have dominion over them in the morning;
    their strength will be consumed in the afterlife,[b]
        so that they have no home.
15 God will truly redeem me from the power[c] of Sheol.[d]
    He will surely receive me!
