Where Is the Quote "His Judgment Cometh and That Right Soon" From?

The quote "His judgment cometh and that right soon" is seen in the 1994 movie, "The Shawshank Redemption." It is not a quote found in the Bible. The closest verse is from Ecclesiasticus 21:5 in the Catholic Apocrypha, "A prayer out of a poor man's mouth reacheth to the ears of God, and his judgment cometh speedily."
