Ecclesiastes 3:1-11 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

A Time for Everything

1 There is a time1 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,2 3 a time to kill3 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 them, 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 silent4 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 his toil?5 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men.6 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time.7 He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom8 what God has done from beginning to end.9
