Ecclesiastes 3:1-9 - God Has Ordained The Ebb And Flow Of Human Activities

1 For everything there is a season, and a time for very 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.

9 What profit has he who works in that in which he labors?
