Available translation(s): ENG
Omnia tempus habent,
et suis spatiis transeunt universo sub coelo.
Tempus nascendi et tempus moriendi,
tempus plantandi et tempus evellendi quod plantatum est,
tempus occidendi et tempus sanandi,
tempus destruendi et tempus aedificandi,
tempus flendi et tempus ridendi,
tempus plangendi et tempus saltandi,
tempus spargendi lapides et tempus colligendi.
Tempus amplexandi et tempus longe fieri ab amplexibus,
tempus acquirendi et tempus perdendi,
tempus custodiendi et tempus abjiciendi,
Tempus scindendi, et tempus consuendi;
tempus tacendi, et tempus loquendi.
Tempus dilectionis, et tempus odii;
tempus belli, et tempus pacis.
