I said in my heart, “God will judge the righteous person and the wicked person, for there is a time for every purpose and for every work.” Bible

“I said in my heart.” An idiomatic way of saying, “I said to myself” (cp. HCSB; NASB; NIV).

“God will judge.” The judgment of God on the Day of Judgement is a theme in Ecclesiastes, concluding in the very last verse in Ecclesiastes, Ecclesiastes 12:14.
