Col. 1:20

and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

Psalm 49:1-12

Hear this, all peoples!

    Give ear, all inhabitants of the world,

both low and high,

    rich and poor together!

My mouth shall speak wisdom;

    the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.

I will incline my ear to a proverb;

    I will solve my riddle to the music of the lyre.

Why should I fear in times of trouble,

    when the iniquity of those who cheat me surrounds me,

those who trust in their wealth

    and boast of the abundance of their riches?

Truly no man can ransom another,

    or give to God the price of his life,

for the ransom of their life is costly

    and can never suffice,

that he should live on forever

    and never see the pit.

10 

For he sees that even the wise die;

    the fool and the stupid alike must perish

    and leave their wealth to others.

11 

Their graves are their homes forever,[a]

    their dwelling places to all generations,

    though they called lands by their own names.

12 

Man in his pomp will not remain;    he is like the beasts that perish.
