Ecclesiastes 3:1-22
1. Every thing hath a time, yea all that is under the heaven, hath his convenient season.
2. There is a time to be born, and a time to die. there is a time to plant, and a time to pluck up the thing, that is planted:
3. A time to slay, and a time to make whole: A time to break down, and a time to build up:
4. A time to weep, and a time to laugh: A time to mourn, and a time to dance:
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:
6. A time to win, and a time to lese: A time to spare, and a time to spend:
7. A time to cut in pieces, and a time to sew together: A time to keep silence, and a time to speak:
8. A time to love, and a time to hate: A time of war, and a time of peace.
9. What hath a man else (that doth anything) but weariness and labour?
10. For as touching the travail and carefulness which God hath given unto men, I see that he hath given it them, to be exercised in it.
11. All this hath he ordained marvelous goodly, to every thing his due time. He hath planted(plated) ignorance also in the hearts of men, that they should not find out the ground of his works, which he doth from the beginning to the end.
12. So I perceived, that in these things there is nothing better for a man, then to be merry and to do well so long as he liveth.
13. For all that a man eateth and drinketh, yea what soever a man enjoyeth of all his labor, the same is a gift of God.
14. I considered also that whatsoever God doth, it continueth for ever, and that nothing can be put unto it, nor taken from it: And that God doth it to the intent, that men should fear him.
15. The thing that hath been, is now: and the thing that is for to come, hath been afore time, for God restoreth again the thing that was past.
16. Moreover, I saw under the sun ungodliness in the stead of judgment, and iniquity in stead of righteousness.
17. Then thought I in my mind: God shall separate the righteous from the ungodly, and then shall be the time and judgement of all counsels and works.
18. I communed(comoned) with mine own heart also concerning the children of men: how God hath chosen them, and yet letteth them appear as though they were beasts:
19. For it happeneth unto men as it doth unto beasts, and as the one dieth, so dieth the other: yea they have both one manner of breath, so that (in this) a man hath no preeminence above a beast, but all are subdued unto vanity.
20. They go all unto one place, for as they be all of dust, so shall they all turn unto dust again.
21. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the breath of the beast that goeth down into the earth?
22. Wherefore I perceive, that there is nothing better for a man, than to be joyful in his labour, for that is his portion. But who will bring him to see the thing that shall come after him?

Psalms 102:12-17
12. But thou, O LORD, endurest for ever, and thy remembrance thorowout all generations.
13. Arise therefore and have mercy upon Sion, for it is time to have mercy upon her, yea, the time is come.
14. And why? thy servants have a love to her stones, and it pitieth them to see her in the dust.
15. The Heathen shall fear thy name, O LORD, and all the kings of the earth thy majesty.
16. For the LORD shall build up Sion, and shall appear in his glory.
17. He turneth him to the prayer of the poor destitute, and despiseth not their desire.

Proverbs 24:3-4
3. Thorow wisdom an house shall be builded, and with understanding it shall be set up.
4. Thorow discretion shall the chambers be filled with all costly and pleasant riches.

1 Corinthians 8:1-13
1. To speak of things dedicated unto idols,(As touching things offered unto Idols) we are sure that we all have knowledge. Knowledge maketh a man swell: but love edifieth.
2. If any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.
3. But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
4. To speak of meat dedicated unto idols, we are sure that there is none idol(So are we sure now concerning the meats offered unto Idols, that an Idol is nothing) in the world: and that there is none other God but one.
5. And though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth (as there be gods many and lords many)
6. but(yet) unto us is there(but) one God, which is the father, of whom are all things, and we in him: and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
7. But every man hath not knowledge. For some suppose that there is an idol, until this hour, and eat as of a thing offered unto the idol, and so their consciences being yet weak are defiled.
8. Meat maketh us not acceptable to God: Neither if we eat are we the better: Neither if we eat not are we the worse.(less)
9. But take heed that your liberty cause not the weak to fall.(be not an occasion of falling unto the weak)
10. For if some man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple shall not the conscience of him which is weak be boldened(occasioned) to eat those things which are offered unto the idol?
11. And so thorow thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish for whom Christ died.
12. When we(ye) sin so against the brethren and wound their weak consciences, we(ye) sin against Christ.
13. Wherefore if meat hurt(offend) my brother, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, because I will not hurt(lest i offend) my brother.
