The Excellence in God's Works
NIV ESV NASB KJV HCSB
9What do workers gain from their toil? 9What gain has the worker from his toil? 9What profit is there to the worker from that in which he toils? 9What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? 9What does the worker gain from his struggles?
10I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 10I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. 10I have seen the task which God has given the sons of men with which to occupy themselves. 10I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. 10I have seen the task that God has given people to keep them occupied.
11He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 11He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. 11He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end. 11He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. 11He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also put eternity in their hearts, but man cannot discover the work God has done from beginning to end.
12I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. 12I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; 12I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and to do good in one's lifetime; 12I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. 12I know that there is nothing better for them than to rejoice and enjoy the good life.
NIV ESV NASB KJV HCSB
13That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil--this is the gift of God. 13also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man. 13moreover, that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God. 13And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God. 13It is also the gift of God whenever anyone eats, drinks, and enjoys all his efforts.
14I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that people will fear him. 14I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him. 14I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it, for God has so worked that men should fear Him. 14I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. 14I know that all God does will last forever; there is no adding to it or taking from it. God works so that people will be in awe of Him.
15Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before; and God will call the past to account. 15That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away. 15That which is has been already and that which will be has already been, for God seeks what has passed by. 15That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past. 15Whatever is, has already been, and whatever will be, already is. God repeats what has passed.

Calvin comments:
KJV
1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

New International Version
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

New American Standard Bible
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven--

Contemporary English Version
Everything on earth has its own time and its own season.

Good News Translation
Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses.

NET Bible
For everything there is an appointed time, and an appropriate time for every activity on earth:
GOD'S WORD® Translation
Everything has its own time, and there is a specific time for every activity under heaven:

Douay-Rheims Bible
All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven.

Pulpit Commentary
Verses 1-22. - Section 4. In confirmation of the truth that man's happiness depends upon the will of God, Koheleth proceeds to show how Providence arranges even the minutest concernsthat man can alter nothingmust make the best of things as they arebear with anomaliesbounding his desires by this present lifeVerses 1-8. - The providence of God disposes and arranges every detail of man's life. 

In human affairs Providence arranges the moment when everything shall happen, the duration of its operation, and the time appropriate thereto. The view of the writer takes in the whole circumstances of men's life from its commencement to its close. But the thought is not, as some have opined, that there is naught but uncertainty, fluctuation, and imperfection in human affairs, nor, as Plumptre conceives, "It is wisdom to do the right thing at the right time

And this is Calvin Tan's expanded Translations
There is a time for every thing in Life. Seasonal, Situatonal, Structural & Sensational
Except for Birth & Death which are two events not under our control - rest of the things depand on how we use WISDOM TO DO THE RIGHT THING AT THE RIGHT TIME

Since God made the Eartn to be seasonal
Genesis8: 22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

ALL COMPANIES WILL RISE OR FALL IN BUSINESS DEPENDING ON THE SEASONS

Like a Ski Resort
Its business is at its Best During Winter. So is selling Christmas Greeting Cards. No body buy Christmas Cards in January or June. They only start buying near December 25th every year

In our youth we play according to the SEASONS
A time to fly Kite when North-east Monsoon wind is strong
There was a little provision shop near my home
To make Kites we must buy
Papers for Kite making
Bamboo
Strings (lots of it)

After Kites season over the little shop will only stock next hot items like
Marbles (marbles season)
Tops (Tops spinning time)
Others fads of the Times.
He adapts his business wisely
And these he cannot
Catching spiders
Playing hide & seek
So he waits out the time by selling normal neccessities until the SEASONS return
Of course today Children no longer play these
THESE ALL LONG GONE
WHY
THERE IS STRUCTURAL CHANGES
Today, selling things to make Kites, Marbles or Tops are NO LONGER POPULAR
CHILDREN HAVE ALL MIGRATED TO PLAY COMPUTER GAMES!!
So New Structural Changes will usher in New Businesses
Other STRUCTURAL CHANGES ARE
THE BUILDING OF NORTH SOUTH HIGHWAY
IT USED TO TAKE 14 HOURS BY BUS FROM PENANG TO SINGAPORE IN YEAR 1979
PASSING THRU TOWNS LIKE TAIPING IN THE NORTH & AYER ITAM IN THE SOUTH
NOW NO MORE. THE NS HIGHWAY BYPASSED THEM
STRUCTURAL CHANGES HAVE MADE THESE TOWNS UNIMPORTANT
AS TIME IS SHORTENED PENANG, KL & SPORE ROSE TO EVEN HIGHER PROMINANCE

THEN COMES COVID 19!
WHAT IS THIS?
THIS IS A SITUATIONAL EVENT
IT CHANGES MANY THINGS
SHOPPING MALLS ARE AVOIDED
AIR TRAVEL COLLAPSED
TOURISM INDUSTRY EVAPORATES
RESTAURANTS HALF EMPTY
MILLIONS RETRENCHED
THOUSANDS OF BUSINESSES GOING BANKRUPT
BUT AMONG THE PANDEMIC AROSE NEW DEMAND
SALES OF MEDICAL GLOVES, FACE MASKS, HAND SANITIZERS WILL BE EXPLOSIVE
AS PEOPLE STAY HOME ONLY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION IS THRU ONLINE SPACE
SO ONLINE TECH RELATED COMPANIES WILL DO WELL
MANY CANNOT GO OUT (OR DARE NOT GO OUT)
SO BUYING OFFLINE SHIFTS TO ONLINE * ECOMMERCE PROSPERS
WHAT ELSE?
AS PEOPLE STAY HOME THEY LOOK TO EARN EXTRA INCOME. SO THEY GO INVESTING IN SHARES ONLINE
MANY ARE NEWBIES AND WILL GET SLAUGHTERED BY SYNDICATES
THE RISE OF THE SENSATIONAL
DANGER OF SENSATIONAL THEME STOCKS DRUMMED UP BY DISHONEST COMPANY LEADERS IN CA-HOOT WITH SYNDICATES!!
PLEASE BE WARNED & BE CAREFUL DON'T SIMPLY CHASED HYPED UP HOT STOCKS WHICH ARE FRAUDS!!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

THEN HOW?

GO FOR SAFE, SOUND INVESTMENTS WITH SOLID FUNDAMENTALS AND REAL DEMANDS

FOR TODAY NO MENTION OF ANY PARTICULAR STOCKS

PLEASE STUDY YOURSELVES & THEN INVEST CAREFULLY

WARM REGARDS

CALVIN TAN RESEARCH

HOW A NICE DAY

AND GIVE THANKS TO GOD
