A time to search and a time to give up as lost ; A time to keep and a time to throwaway.
A time to tearapart and a time to sewtogether ; A time to 1be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to 2hate ; A time for war and a time for peace.
93Whatprofit is there to the worker from that in which he toils ?
I have seen the 4taskwhichGod has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves.
He has 5madeeverythingaappropriate in its time. He has alsoseteternity in their heart, byetso that man6will not find out the workwhichGod has done from the beginning even to the end.
I know that there is 7nothingbetter for them than to rejoice and to dogood in one's lifetime ;
13moreover, that everymanwhoeats and drinksseesgood in all his labor -it is the 8gift of God.
I know that everythingGoddoes will remainforever ; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should c9fear Him.
That 10which is has beenalready and that which will be has alreadybeen, for Godseeks what has passed by.
16Furthermore, I have seenunder the sun that in the place of justicethere is 11wickedness and in the place of righteousnessthere is wickedness.
