Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

1 For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven:

2 A time to be born,  And a time to die;  A time to plant,  And a time to pluck up that which 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;

5 A time to cast 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 cast 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.
