Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:1 - To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens:

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 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;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:3 - A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to build up;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:4 - A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 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;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:6 - A time to seek, and a time to lose; A time to keep, and a time to cast away;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:7 - A time to rend, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:8 - A time to love, and a time to hate; A time of war, and a time of peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:9 - What profit hath he that worketh from that wherein he laboureth?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:10 - I have seen the travail that God hath given to the sons of men to toil in.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:11 - He hath made everything beautiful in its time; also he hath set the world in their heart, so that man findeth not out from the beginning to the end the work that God doeth.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:12 - I know that there is nothing good for them but to rejoice and to do well in their life;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:13 - yea also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy good in all his labour, it is the gift of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:14 - I know that whatever God doeth, it shall be for ever; there is nothing to be added to it, nor anything to be taken from it; and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:15 - That which is was long ago, and that which is to be hath already been; and God bringeth back again that which is past.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:16 - And moreover I saw under the sun, that in the place of judgment, wickedness was there; and in the place of righteousness, wickedness was there.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:18 - I said in my heart, It is thus with the children of men, that God may prove them, and that they should see that they themselves are but beasts.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:19 - For what befalleth the children of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other, and they have all one breath; and man hath no pre-eminence above the beast: for all is vanity.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:20 - All go unto one place: all are of the dust, and all return to dust.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:21 - Who knoweth the spirit of the children of men? Doth it go upwards? and the spirit of the beasts, doth it go downwards to the earth?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:22 - And I have seen that there is nothing better than that man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion; for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
