Moreover I saw under the sun that in the place of justice [i.e.,
governments], wickedness was there, and in the place of righteousness,
wickedness was there as well. 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. I said in my heart with regard to human beings that God is
testing them to show that they are but animals. For the fate of humans and
the fate of animals is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. I saw all
the oppressions that are practiced under the sun. Look, the tears of the
oppressed, with no one to comfort them! On the side of their oppressors
there was power with no one to comfort them. And I thought the dead, who
have already died, [are] more fortunate than the living, who are still
alive; but better than both is the one who has not yet been, and has not
seen the evil deeds that are done under the sun.
