Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:1 - There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every [fn]event under heaven—

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:2 - A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:3 - A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear 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 throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:6 - A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:7 - A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:9 - What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:10 - I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:11 - He has made everything [fn]appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, [fn]yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:12 - I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one’s lifetime;

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:13 - moreover, that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor—it is the gift of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:14 - I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should [fn]fear Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:15 - That which is has been already and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:16 - Furthermore, I have seen under the sun that in the place of justice there is wickedness and in the place of righteousness there is wickedness.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:17 - I said [fn]to myself, “God will judge both the righteous man and the wicked man,” for a time for every [fn]matter and for every deed is there.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:18 - I said [fn]to myself concerning the sons of men, “God has surely tested them in order for them to see that they are but beasts.”

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:19 - For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts [fn]is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is [fn]vanity.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:20 - All go to the same place. All came from the dust and all return to the dust.

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:21 - Who knows that the breath of man ascends upward and the breath of the beast descends downward to the earth?

Unchecked Copy BoxEcc 3:22 - I have seen that nothing is better than that man should be happy in his activities, for that is his lot. For who will bring him to see what will occur after him?
