There is a time for everything: a time to be born, and a time to die;





A time to plant and a time to pull up the plants.





A time to kill and a time to make healthy.






A time to break stuff and a time to build stuff.





A time to cry and a time to laugh.

       A time to be sad and a time to dance.






A time to throw away stones and a time to collect stones.






A time to hug and a time not to hug.






A time to get stuff and a time to lose stuff.






A time to keep stuff and a time to throw away stuff.






A time to tear up stuff and a time to sew back together.





A time to be quiet and a time to talk.



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





What do we get from all our work?




I have seen the hard work that God gives the sons of men in this world to bring down their hearts from being puffed up.




God made everything beautiful in His time. And He set the world in our hearts so no one can find out all that He does from the start to the end.




The only good thing is for man to be happy and do what is good.





To eat and to drink and enjoy the good from all his work, this is a gift from God.


Whatever God does, it will last forever. No one can add anything to it and no one can take anything away from it.




God does this so that men will hold Him high in their hearts because knowing Him is the best life.




Something else I saw is that sometimes a bad thing is done in court and sometimes a wrong thing is done where it should be right.

I said in my heart, God will judge the right ones and the bad ones because there is a time for everything done and every work.


I said in my heart that the things that happen in this world are so that God can show them that He is God and they are not, they are just creatures that He has made.




The same thing happens to the animals and the people God made like Himself.



Their breath goes out and they both die the same way. Both are empty.





All go to one place, back to the dust.




Does the spirit of man go up and the spirit of animals go back into the ground?



I think that there is nothing better than for man to be happy about his work because that is what God gave him.



Who can bring him to see what is going to happen next?
