13 That’s how it goes for those who are foolish,
    as well as for those who follow their lead, pleased with their talk.
14 Like sheep, they’re headed straight for the grave.[a]
    Death will be their shepherd—
    but those who do right in their hearts will rule over them come morning!—
    their forms wasting away in the grave
    rather than having some dignified residence.[b]
15 But God will save my life from the power of the grave,
    because he will take me. Selah
