The Mystery of Time

There is an occasion for everything,
and a time for every activity under heaven:(A)
a time to give birth and a time to die;(B)
a time to plant and a time to uproot;[a]
a time to kill and a time to heal;
a time to tear down and a time to build;
a time to weep and a time to laugh;(C)
a time to mourn and a time to dance;(D)
a time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;(E)
a time to embrace and a time to avoid embracing;(F)
a time to search and a time to count as lost;
a time to keep and a time to throw away;
a time to tear and a time to sew;
a time to be silent and a time to speak;(G)
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.(H)
