15That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
That's a little cryptic."hath been""is to be"
A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist,
that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.
Past and future uses the same word with a few qualifiers thrown in --hâyâh--I AM.
Both past and future..."is now"
From H3527; properly extent of time, that is, a great while; hence long ago, formerly, hitherto: - already, (seeing that which), now.
A primitive root; properly to plait together
, that is, (figuratively) to augment (especially in number or quantity, to accumulate): - in abundance, multiply.
This is starting to spook me.
This sounds a little cozier, if not as metaphysically accurate--15 Everything that now exists has already been.
And what is coming has existed before.
God will judge those who treat others badly.
