13 This is the destiny of those who are foolish,
    and of those who approve their sayings. Selah.
14 They are appointed as a flock for Sheol.[a]
    Death shall be their shepherd.
The upright shall have dominion over them in the morning.
    Their beauty shall decay in Sheol,[b]
    far from their mansion.
15 But God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol,[c]
    for he will receive me. Selah.
