a time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Select a resource above

4. mourn—namely, for the dead (Ge 23:2).

dance—as David before the ark (2Sa 6:12-14; Ps 30:11); spiritually (Mt 9:15; Lu 6:21; 15:25). The Pharisees, by requiring sadness out of time, erred seriously.
