Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, When the glory of his house is increased.
Young's Literal Translation

Psalm 49:16 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Be not thou afraid when one is made rich - Do not be envious; do not grieve: it will do you no harm; it will do him no good. All he gets will be left behind; he can carry nothing with him. Even his glory must stay behind; he shall mingle with the common earth.
