Definitions for Ecclesiastes 3 :4

Clarke's Commentary on Ecclesiastes 3 :4

A time to weep, - laugh, - mourn, - dance -

- "When private griefs affect

The heart, our tears with decent sorrow flow;

Nor less becoming, when the public mourns,

To vent the deepest sighs. But all around

When things a smiling aspect bear, our souls

May well exult; 'tis then a time for joy."
