ECCLESIASTES 3:1-17 TIME!
1-There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
2-a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3-a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4-a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5-a time to scatter stones and a time to gather
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6-a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7-a time to tear and a time to mend,
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 from the toil?
10-I have seen the burden God has laid on men.
11-He has made everything beautiful in its time.
he also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they
can not fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
12-I know that there is nouthing better for men than to be
happy and to do good while they live.
13-That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction
in all his toil this is the gift of God.
14-I know that everthing God does will endure forever;
nouthing can be added to it and nouthing taken from it.
God does it so that men will revere him.
15-Whatever is has already been,
and what will be has been before;
and God will call past to account.
16-And I saw something else under the sun:
In the place of judgment wickedness was there,
in the place of justice wickedness was there.
17-I thought in my heart,
" God will bring judgment
both the righteous and the wicked,
for there will be a time for ever activity,
a time for every deed."
