Ecclesiastes 3:1-6 MSG/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 There's an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth: 1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
2 A right time for birth and another for death, A right time to plant and another to reap, 2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 A right time to kill and another to heal, A right time to destroy and another to construct, 3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 A right time to cry and another to laugh, A right time to lament and another to cheer, 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 A right time to make love and another to abstain, A right time to embrace and another to part, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
6 A right time to search and another to count your losses, A right time to hold on and another to let go, 6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
