13 This is the path of those who have (A)foolish confidence;
    yet after them people approve of their boasts.[a] Selah
14 Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol;
    death shall be their shepherd,
and the upright (B)shall rule over them in the morning.
    (C)Their form shall be consumed (D)in Sheol, with no place to dwell.
15 But God will (E)ransom my soul from the power of Sheol,
    for he will (F)receive me. Selah
