Definitions for Ecclesiastes 3 :2

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."

Barnes's Commentary on Ecclesiastes 3 :2

Wesley's Commentary 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.
