Ecclesiastes 3:11: “He hath made everything beautiful in His time.”
Beautiful in Hebrew is yapah. In its Semitic root it is a term used by a craftsman who carefully crafts various pieces of material to fit precisely together. It is used for building a palace using various combinations of building material that are cut or chiseled to fit precisely together or placing precious stones carefully in a settings which are made so the stone fits precisely into the settings to enhance the stone’s appearance. The results create a sense of intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to one’s mind, which is really what our English word beauty is all about.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 can read: “He has made everything to fit precisely together to create a sense of intense pleasure and satisfaction in its time.
