Ecclesiastes 3 – King James Version (KJV)

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.

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?
