Ecclesiastes 3: 1-9

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5time to throw away stones, and a time to
gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to
seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; 7 a time to tear, and a time
to sew; a time to keep silence, 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 gain have the workers from their toil?
