Psalm 49:9 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

That he should still live for ever - That his brother whom he could not redeem - or that he himself - should not die, Psalm 49:8. The idea is, that the price of life is so great that no wealth can rescue it so that a man shall not die.

And not see corruption - Should not return to dust, or moulder away in the grave. See the notes at Psalm 16:10.

But while all held their peace, the Son [441] said,

A: When God had created man, he entered into a covenant of life with him upon condition of perfect obedience, forbidding him to eat of the tree of knowledge upon pain of death.
