Ecclesiastes 3
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1To everything there is a time, and a time for every matter under the sun

2A time to be born and a time to die, the time to plant and the time to uproot the plant

3A time to kill and a time to save life, a time to tear down and a time to build

4A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to dance and a time to mourn

5A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing

6A time to lose and a time to seek, a time to bind up and a time to loose

7A time to rip and a time to sew, a time to be silent and a time to speak

8A time to love and a time to hate, a time of war and a time of peace

9What profit has a son man in the work that he labors under the sun? 10I have seen the task that LORD JEHOVAH gives the children men in which to be employed

11All that he does is beautiful in its time, and he puts eternity in their heart, so that a man will not find the work that LORD JEHOVAH does from the beginning and until the latter end

12I have known that there is no good in them but to gladden and do what is good in their lives 13And also that every man may eat and drink and see good in all his work, this is the gift of LORD JEHOVAH 14I have known that everything LORD JEHOVAH does shall be for eternity; there is nothing to add to it and nothing to subtract from it, and LORD JEHOVAH works that they shall be in awe of him 15Whatever has already been, is, and all whatever shall be, has been for a long time, and God will seek the persecuted who is driven away

16And again I have seen under the sun the place of judgment: there is wickedness, and the place of righteousness: there is evil 17I said in my heart:" the righteous and the wicked God judges, because there is a time for every matter and every work" 18I spoke in my heart about the speech of the children men whom God created , and to show that they are as beasts 19Mishap meets the children men and mishap of beasts; one mishap occurs to all; like the death of one, so dies also the other, and they all have the same Spirit, and there is no superiority of a son of man compared to beasts, for everything is futility 20All go to one place; everyone was from dust and each returns to dust. 21And who knows if the spirit of the children of men ascends above, and the spirit of beasts descends under the earth? 22I have seen there is nothing better for them but that a man rejoice in his works, because that is his portion, for who will bring him to see all that will be after him?
