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 be hurt, 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.
Ecclesiastes 3, v. 1-8

Have a good weekend my friends.

Abhishek Upadhyay 12:51 PM  

Yes theres time for everything....

me 1:07 PM  

This is taken from bible and you not have given the source but claim your poem.
Ecclesiastes 3, v. 1-8

"For everthing 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 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 case 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, a time to cast away; a time to rend, 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." Revised Standard Version

And a time to say to Starry...

Have a great weekend
with lots of joy and cheer
full of many happy moments
with your friends and loved ones
so very near!

Take care!


cathouse teri 1:23 PM  

I don't believe it's necessary to give the Bible the credit for this passage. If we don't know it's from the Bible, I'd say we are sorely amiss in our world experience!

cathouse teri 1:26 PM  

I'm sorry. I know this isn't my blog, and you can delete this comment if you like. But I'm irritated when a person purports to be revealing biblical truth on something, yet hides their identity. They should stay in their dark world and not wander into the light of others' lives.

priya 1:36 PM  


You too have a great weekend. We all have some crazy ppl' in this world leaving anon comments. As teri said, people who wanna say in dark and shout, just stay alone.

Change your comemnt moderation so that you are authorized to publish only the ones u need.

starry nights 2:39 PM  

Cathouse teri..thanks.have a good weekend.

starry nights 2:40 PM  

Abhishek..yes theres a time for everything.

starry nights 2:41 PM  

Me..I have not claimed this to be mine and I did not know it is from the bible.I have a plaquein my home and these words are on it and I always felt it was so true. a time for everything.

starry nights 2:42 PM have a good week end also.

starry nights 2:44 PM  

Cat house teri..thanks.I did not know it is from the bible but always liked these lines and thought I would share it.

starry nights 2:45 PM  

Priya..thanks.This is a blog and I respect people opinions, I just shared something that I liked and I think there is no harm in it.I did not say this is my poem.It is from a plaque.

chet 3:30 PM  

You may have not known it was from the bible but you did give credit. ME must have missed it. Ecclesiastes is a book from the old testament. That was beautiful, thank you for sharing it.

priya 3:42 PM  


I received a nasty comment 2 days back, since I had comment moderation I felt good.
No problem. Whicever makes you happy good for you.

Blessed 6:44 PM  

Starry---I just love that!

RefleXtion 8:32 PM  

and I took time to make it to rare visits! Hey, how you doooin?

Aditi 8:44 PM  

What happens when we miss that time
nice thought though

Hip Grandma 10:22 PM  

I'll add one more-
A time to criticize and a time to correct.

The list was good.

Hip Grandma 10:26 PM  

Does the Bible forbid quoting from the scriptures.You have mentioned Ecclesiastes 3, v. 1-8 at the end.Why should that bother anyone.You needn;\'t have bothered to reply to such people.

Ardra 11:24 PM

A time to live,
A time to die

Mumbai Guy 6:14 AM  

Hey starry, How you been doing?

Your line "A time for war, and a time for peace." I hope to rewrite it as

"Never a time for war, always a time for peace".

Have a nice weekend.

starry nights 6:50 AM  

Priya..thanks. I may want the comment moderation, because you really dont know some people out there who want to be mean.

starry nights 6:51 AM

starry nights 6:55 AM  


starry nights 6:56 AM  

Mumbai are right.if I had written it I would not have said time for war because in my mind no war is justified. I am for peace and have never supported any kind of war.

Anali 7:55 AM  

Quite true. I hope the time for love and peace gets here soon, because this world has sure seen enough hate and war.

the sunflower 12:45 AM  

maybe.... but now is not the time for such and such thing shouldn't be the excuse for inaction... which in a lot of cases is the case...

itchingtowrite 2:01 AM

Those must be the most famous lines from Ecclesiastes and was the basis for a popular song in my young days--'To everything turn, turn, turn, There is a season'.
