The World Marred By Oppression And Injustice

9 All these things have I considered, and applied my mind unto every work that is under the Sun: how one man hath lordship upon another to his own harm. 10 For I have oft seen the ungodly brought to their graves, and fallen down from the high and glorious place; insomuch that they were forgotten in the city where they were had in so high and great reputation. This is also a vain thing. 11 Because now that evil works are not hastily punished, the heart of man giveth himself over unto wickedness.
