Ecclesiastes 3


3:1 To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every
 purpose under the heaven:
3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a
 time to pluck up [that which is] planted;
3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down,
 and a time to build up;
3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a
 time to dance;
3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a
 time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a
 time to cast away;
3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence,
 and a time to speak;
3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a
 time of peace.
3:9 What profit hath he that worketh in that in which he
 laboreth?
3:10 I have seen the labor, which God hath given to the sons of
 men to be exercised in it.
3:11 He hath made every [thing] beautiful in its 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.
3:12 I know that [there is] no good in them, but for [a man] to
 rejoice, and to do good in his life.
3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the
 good of all his labor, it [is] the gift of God.
3:14 I know that, whatever God doeth, it shall be for ever:
 nothing can be added to it, nor any thing taken from it: and
 God doeth [it], that [men] should fear before him.
3:15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath
 already been; and God requireth that which is past.
3:16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment,
 [that] wickedness [was] there; and the place of righteousness,
 [that] iniquity [was] there.
3:17 I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the
 wicked: for [there is] a time there for every purpose and for
 every work.
3:18 I said in my heart concerning the state of the sons of men,
 that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they
 themselves are beasts.
3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts;
 even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the
 other; yes, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no
 pre-eminence above a beast: for all [is] vanity.
3:20 All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to
 dust again.
3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the
 spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
3:22 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?
