49:20 understandeth not. No matter how rich or wise or honorable a man may be, if he rejects or neglects an understanding acceptance of God’s redemption through Jesus Christ, he is no better off than a dead beast when he dies. Actually he is worse off, for he must yet face God’s judgment and then spend eternity in conscious awareness that he is lost forever (II Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 14:11).
Psalm 50 (title) Asaph. This psalm is the first of twelve attributed to Asaph, one of David’s chief musicians (I Chronicles 15:19). Note also Psalms 73–83.
