13 This is the (A)way of those who are foolish,
And of those after them who (B)approve their words. Selah
14 Like sheep they sink down (C)to [a]Sheol;
Death will be their shepherd;
And the (D)upright will rule over them in the morning,
And their form shall be for [b]Sheol (E)to consume
[c]So that they have no lofty home.
15 But God will (F)redeem my soul from the [d]power of [e]Sheol,
For (G)He will receive me. Selah
