New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
16 I also noticed that throughout the world there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt! 16 And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judgment--wickedness was there, in the place of justice--wickedness was there.
17 I said to myself, "In due season God will judge everyone, both good and bad, for all their deeds." 17 I thought in my heart, "God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed."
