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.

And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
Moreover, I saw under the sun that in the place of justice, even there was wickedness, and in the place of righteousness, even there was wickedness.
I also noticed that under the sun there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt!
