|A Reading from the Book of Ecclesiastes
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
What gain have the workers from their toil? I have seen the business that God has given to everyone to be busy with. He has made everything suitable for its time; moreover he has put a sense of past and future into their minds, yet they cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
Here the Reading ends.
