021:003:001
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:


021:003:002
A time to be born,
and a time to die;
a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;


021:003:003
A time to kill,
and a time to heal;
a time to break down,
and a time to build up;


021:003:004
A time to weep,
and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;


021:003:005
A time to cast away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace,
and a time to refrain from embracing;


021:003:006
A time to get,
and a time to lose;
a time to keep,
and a time to cast away;


021:003:007
A time to rend,
and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence,
and a time to speak;


021:003:008
A time to love,
and a time to hate;
a time of war,
and a time of peace.


021:003:009
What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?


021:003:010
I have seen the travail,
which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.


021:003:011
He hath made every thing beautiful in his time:
also he hath set the world in their heart,
so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.


021:003:012
I know that there is no good in them,
but for a man to rejoice,
and to do good in his life.


021:003:013
And also that every man should eat and drink,
and enjoy the good of all his labour,
it is the gift of God.


021:003:014
I know that,
whatsoever God doeth,
it shall be for ever:
nothing can be put to it,
nor any thing taken from it:
and God doeth it,
that men should fear before him.


021:003:015
That which hath been is now;
and that which is to be hath already been;
and God requireth that which is past.


021:003:016
And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment,
that wickedness was there;
and the place of righteousness,
that iniquity was there.


021:003:017
I said in mine heart,
God shall judge the righteous and the wicked:
for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.


021:003:018
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.


021:003:019
For 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.


021:003:020
All go unto one place;
all are of the dust,
and all turn to dust again.


021:003:021
Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward,
and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?


021:003:022
Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better,
than that a man should rejoice in his own works;
for that is his portion:
for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
