To every thing there is a season, and a atime to every purpose under the heaven:
2 bA time to be born, and ca time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 dA time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 eA time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and fa time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 gA time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; ha time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to ihate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
9 jWhat profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? 10 kI have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. 11 He mhath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that lno man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. 12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. 13 And also nthat every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God. 14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: onothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. 15 pThat which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
16 And moreover qI saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. 17 I said in mine heart, rGod shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work. 18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. 19 sFor that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. 20 All go unto one place; tall are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. 21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? 22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for uthat is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
