    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 49:9

    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.
