Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up 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 weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.


A mí que soy vuestro padre escuchadme, hijos, y obrad así para salvaros. Pues el Señor glorifica al padre en los hijos, y afirma el derecho de la madre sobre su prole. Quien honra a su padre expía sus pecados; como el que atesora es quien da gloria a su madre. Quien honra a su padre recibirá contento de sus hijos, y en el día de su oración será escuchado. Quien da gloria al padre vivirá largos días, obedece al Señor quien da sosiego a su madre: como a su Señor sirve a los que le engendraron. En obra y palabra honra a tu padre, para que te alcance su bendición.

God of infinity,

     only you know our time here on earth.

Guide us to do the things you would have us do,

     in the time and places you would have us go.

Use us to further your righteous kingdom.

Help us to know that everything in this world has a time and purpose

     and to trust you alone to hold that knowledge.

In Jesus’ name,



Turn! Turn! Turn!
