Ecclesiastes 3:16-17

NRS 16 Moreover I saw under the sun that in the place of justice, wickedness was there, and in the place of righteousness, wickedness was there as well. NIV 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. NRS 17 I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for he has appointed a time for every matter, and for every work. NIV 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."
