All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

9:2 come alike to all. Since “all have sinned” (note Ecclesiastes 7:20), therefore all deserve nothing good from God. Nevertheless, God has done good to all in countless ways (see Acts 14:17, for example). For the present, “the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together” (Romans 8:22).
