David Throop: For everything there is a season, and a time for ever matter under heaven

Speaker: A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted

All: A time to kill, and a time to heal

Speaker: A time to break down, and a time to build up

All: A time to weep, and a time to laugh

Speaker: A time to mourn, and a time to dance

All: A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stone together

Speaker: A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing

All: A time to seek, and a time to lose

Speaker: A time to keep, and a time to throw away

All: A time to tear, and a time to sew

Speaker: A time to keep silence, and a time to speak

All: A time to love, and a time to hate

Speaker: A time for war

All: And a time for peace.
