Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

1 For everything there is an appointed time, a time for every matter under heaven: 2 a time to bear* and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to root up what is planted; 3 a time to kill and a time to heal; a time to break down and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance; 5 a time to throw away stones and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to seek and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to throw away; 7 a time to tear and a time to sew; a time to be silent and a time to speak; 8 a time to love and a time to hate; a time for war and a time for peace. 9 What does the worker gain in his toil? 10 I have seen the busyness God gives to humans* to preoccupy* them. 11 He has made everything suitable in its time. He also has put the past* in their hearts, yet no one can grasp what God does from the beginning to the end.
