A Time to be Born
A Time to be Born (Ecclesiastes 3:1 - Ecclesiastes 3:8)
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 together; 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 wherein he laboureth?
 
3:10 
I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
 
3:11 
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.
 
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 labour, it is the gift of God.
 
3:14 
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.
 
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 mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
 
3:18 
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.
 
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; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
 
3:20 
All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
