Furthermore, I have seen under the sun that in the place of justice there is wickedness and in the place of righteousness there is wickedness.

For there is a proper time and procedure for every delight, though a man's trouble is heavy upon him.
Rejoice, young man, during your childhood, and let your heart be pleasant during the days of young manhood. And follow the impulses of your heart and the desires of your eyes. Yet know that God will bring you to judgment for all these things.
For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.
