Ecclesiastaes 3: 1-8
For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
2 a time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
3 a time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
4 a time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
6 a time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
7 a time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
8 a time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace
