The World Marred By Oppression And Injustice

8 Neither is there any man that hath power over the spirit, to keep still the spirit, nor to have any power in the time of death: it is not he also that can make an end of the battle, neither may ungodliness deliver him that meddleth withall. 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.
