Psalms Death Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter:Verse)

Quote #4

The dead do not praise the Lord,
nor do any that go down into silence. (NRSV 115:17)

The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence. (KJV 115:17)

Why can't the dead praise God? Does that put more pressure on the living?
