About This Website's Name

The name of my website is derived from some very recognizable words, and although the Byrds made them immensely popular in a Pete Seeger song entitled "Turn! Turn! Turn!" in1965, Seeger was not the original writer. Rather, he borrowed extensively from the King James Version of the Bible in quoting the beginning of the third chapter of Ecclesiastes.

While I love the New International Version of the Bible, there are certain passages of scripture that are just so beautiful in the KJV. Ecc. 3:1-8 is definitely one of these pieces. For those of you who might be interested in the entire passage, I have provided it here for your enjoyment, first in the KJV and then in the NIV. (And for those of you who didn't already know this, Pete Seeger added the words "turn, turn, turn". They don't occur in the Biblical passage.)

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (KJV)

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love; and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace;
