    Clarke's Commentary on Ecclesiastes 3:2

    A time to be born, and a time to die - plant -

    "As in its mother's womb the embryo lies

    A space determined; to full growth arrived,

    From its dark prison bursts, and sees the light;

    So is the period fix'd when man shall drop

    Into the grave - A time there is to plant,

    And sow; another time to pluck and reap.

    Even nations have their destined rise and fall:

    Awhile they thrive; and for destruction ripe,

    When grown, are rooted up like wither'd plants."

    Wesley's Notes on Ecclesiastes 3:2

    3:2 To die - And as there is a time to die, so there is a time to rise again, a set time when they that lie in the grave shall be remembered.
