Solomon-There is a time

By Mary Vee
Ecclesiastes 3


From Solomon's Notes

I walked the city streets, not skipping any. Dangerous, wealthy, common, every street. I watched my people and listened.

Here is what I learned: God made mankind upright, but men have gone in search of many schemes.

Who then is like the wise man? Who knows how to explain things.Wisdom brightens a man's face and changes its hard appearance. 


A few children ran down the street, playing. An old man sat outside his home watching. From this I learned:


There is a time to be born and a time to die.







Farther down the street I saw a farmer harvesting in his field and I learned:

There is a time to plant and a time to uproot.










And then I saw a woman drinking medicine given to her by a younger person. One of my guards offered to help. From this I learned:

There is a time to kill and a time to heal.





All through the city I watched and learned. These are my conclusions:




There is a time to tear down and a time to build.





There is a time to weep and a time to laugh.








There is a time to mourn and a time to dance.











There is a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them.







There is a time to embrace and a time to refrain.












There is a time to search and a time to give up.








There is a time to keep and a time to throw away.









There is a time to tear and a time to mend.








There is a time to be silent and a time to speak.









There is a time to love and a time to hate











There is a time for war and a time for peace.
