Ecclesiastes 8:8–10 (LEB)

Just as no one can control the wind to restrain the wind,

so also no one can control the day of his death.

Just as no one is discharged in time of war,

so wickedness will not deliver the wicked.

The World Marred by Oppression and Injustice

I saw all this as I applied my heart to all the deeds done under the sun: sometimes those in authority harm others. 10 Meanwhile, I saw the wicked being honorably buried, but those who came and went from the holy place were forgotten in the city, even though they had done so. This also is vanity!
