Ecclesiastes 3 ©
1 By the necessary change of times vanity is added to human travail. 11 There is a fitness in God's works, which man cannot thoroughly find out. 12 , 22 Man's object is to enjoy present good, so far as God alloweth, whose counsels are immutable. 16 From the abuses of human judgments God's judgment is inferred. 18 Men and beasts are visibly alike in their mortal bodies; 21 their spirits, which go different ways, are unknown.
gA time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; ha time to embrace, and a time 2to refrain from embracing;
lA time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
nI have seen the *travail, which oGod hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
I know that, whatsoever God doeth, xit shall be for ever: ynothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, zthat men should fear before him.
Who knoweth 6the spirit of man that 7goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
