To Everything There is a Season


To everything there is a season
A time for every purpose under Heaven

A time to be born
and a time to die
A time to plant
and a time to pluck what is planted

A time to kill
and a time to heal
A time to break down
and a time to build up

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

A time to gain
and a time to lose
A time to keep
and a time to cast away

A time to tear
and a time to sew
A time to keep silence
and a time to speak

A time of love
and a time of hate
A time of war
and a time of peace

    P L A G I A R I S T...! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Verbatim from the Book of Ecclesiastes, and borrowed with a bold notation as being of said bible passage in 1965 by the Rock band, The Byrds whose music to these words was titled Turn, Turn, Turn(To Every Season-From The Book of Ecclesiastes) , and had their record top the Billboard Chart for 3 weeks at the No.1 spot......Not everyone has a natural talent for writing...Perhaps that is your dilemma, however, this is certainly no way to advertise your shortcoming! And if you have literary skills, lets see them...And if you don't but want do...R EA D & L E A R N! ~FjcR~ (Report) Reply

    This is my favorite part of the Old Testament of the Bible. It is taken verbatum from Ecclesiastes chapter 3 verses 1-8 (Report) Reply
