Ecclesiastes 3:2; Ecclesiastes 4:14; Ecclesiastes 5:14; Ecclesiastes 6:3; Ecclesiastes 7:1
A time to be born , and a time to die ; a time to plant , and a time to pluck up that which is planted ;
For out of prison he cometh to reign ; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor .
But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand.
If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say , that an untimely birth is better than he.
A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth .
