Definitions for Ecclesiastes 3 :3

Clarke's Commentary on Ecclesiastes 3 :3

A time to kill, - heal, - break down, - build up -

"The healing art, when out of season used,

Pernicious proves, and serves to hasten death.

But timely medicines drooping nature raise,

And health restore - Now, Justice wields her sword

With wholesome rigour, nor the offender spares:

But Mercy now is more expedient found.

On crazy fabrics ill-timed cost bestow'd

No purpose answers, when discretion bids

To pull them down, and wait a season fit

To build anew."

Barnes's Commentary on Ecclesiastes 3 :3

Wesley's Commentary on Ecclesiastes 3 :3

3:3 To kill - When men die a violent death. To heal - When he who seemed to be mortally wounded is healed.
