Ecclesiastes 3King James Version (KJV)

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every

purpose under the Heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,

and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to

break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep,

and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence,

and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
