King Solomon

“For Everything there is a Season” a Strong Poem by King Solomon

Published: December 29, 2023

This well-known poem For Everything There is a Season is from the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes and is frequently recited at funerals to highlight the notion that life is circular and that, even in death, there is hope for regeneration. The poem, whose author falls to King Solomon (931-971 BC) – according to many sources, describes how the most significant events in life come and go.

King Solomon, a biblical figure, was known for his wisdom and wealth. He ruled Israel around 970-931 BCE and is celebrated for his superior judgment. His reign is connected with the building of the First Temple in Jerusalem. This was a symbol of Israel’s spiritual and political importance.

Solomon’s much talked about wealth and grandeur attracted admirers from far away. His wisdom and contributions to the early Israelite monarchy made him a prominent and lasting figure in biblical history.

“There is a season to everything and a time to every purpose under the heavens. A time to be born, and a time to die. A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what you planted,” the poem states.

The 2018 Stephen Hawking funeral is one of the most well-known occasions, which involved the poem “For everything there is a Season.” The passage’s core ideas—cyclical life’s nature and the reason behind everything that occurs—were a suitable tribute to the late Stephen’s life, which was full of triumph over physical obstacles and the pursuit of knowledge.

For everything there is a Season

It updates us that while life’s challenges are fleeting, its beauty and joy endure for all time. For everything there is a Season can offer consolation to mourners and reassurance that their loved ones will always be cherished and remembered. It is a constant reminder that life goes on even after passing away.

“For Everything there is a Season” a Strong Poem by King Solomon

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. What do workers gain from their toil? I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
