3:1 To every thing there is  a zeman (appointed time, season), and

a time (eth) to every purpose under the heaven:

3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die;

a time to plant, and a time to uproot that which is planted;

3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose;

a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew;

a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate;

a time of war, and a time of peace.

3:9 What profit has he that works in that wherein he labours?

3:10 I have seen the travail, which Elohim (אלהים) has given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

3:11 He has made every thing beautiful in His time: also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that Elohim (אלהים) makes from the beginning to the end.

3:12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of Elohim (אלהים).

3:14 I know that, whatsoever Elohim (אלהים) does, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and Elohim (אלהים) does it, that men should fear before him.

3:15 That which has been is now; and that which is to be has already been; and Elohim (אלהים) requires that which is past.

3:16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of tzedek , that iniquity was there.

3:17 I said in mine heart, Elohim (אלהים) shall judge the tzaddik and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that Elohim (אלהים) might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

3:19 For that which mikreh (fate) the sons of men mikreh (fate) beasts; even one thing mikreh (fate) them: as the one dies, so dies the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man has no preeminence above a beast: for all is hevel (vanity).

3:20 All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

3:21 Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that goes downward to the earth?

3:22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
