1 For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time for war and a time for peace.
9 What do people really get for all their hard work? 10 I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. 11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. 12 So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. 13 And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.
