mon, the subjugation ot the Ajamuzuiea.
the sin and murder or Amnion, the flight
ot Absalom to Geshur. his mothers home,

cession of Juab and his reconciliation

household of David, who. as previously
mentioned, had followed the custom of
Eastern Kings. In violation ot the law or
nature and of Gvd. (Gen. 11. IS.) From
this time forward be reaped a lust retrl

T.) it was apoarent that In a few years
the throne woual be vacated. Many as
pirants, rorgetful of all propriety, were
plotting for the sun-esslon. and Jerusalem
was filled with factions whose movements
caused the King much unrest.
PKEPAHATION-The first son of David.
Ammon. was dead (II Sam. sill. zS. zbl.and
Chlllab. also. Inasmuch as he was never
mentioned, the second son. had nrohablv
deceaavd. This made Absalom, the third
son. heir to the in rone. His mother was
Maacah. the daughter or Talrnai. King of
Geshur. a Syrian district lying on the
northeast of the Holy Lind. (II Sam. 111.
X) While a fugitive at hU father-in-law's
court (II Sam. xtll. SS). he may have con
ceived the purpo-e which afterwards
dominated him. or he may have feared
that unless, early and decisive measures
were adopted Bath-sheba's son might
supplant him. He therefore prepared
white his father was living to gain regal
powers. As soon as David had been
reconciled (xlv. 33) he set promptly to
work. His first act was to secure cliarlots
and horses, contrary to tho law (Dut. xvll,
1). but no one would know that h had
any purpose comra-y to his father's will.
Next he engaged fifty men to ran before
him au an advance guard. This Invested
htm with dignity, constituting him a. mili
tary orhcer. entitling htm to respect.
JUDGMENT-Havlng thus a place In the
Government. Alwalom sought opportunity
for the exercise of authority. Had there
tcn war lie might have dlsUnguUh-xl
himself in battle. But as It was a time of
peace, lie was compelled to enter Into tht
affairs ot ordinary life. The administra
tion or Justice was loosely conducted.
David had given attention to foreign wars
and neglected domestic Interests. As a
result, many came with complaints and
found no one to hear them. And so "Ab
salom stood beside tie way ot the gate.
where ad manner of differences were ad
justed (Ex. xv 111. It), tho courtroom ot
those times, ana gvt an aiic-nuv nmi
sympathetic ear to all who came. It was
a valuable service which be rendered, ap
preciated by the people with whom he
come In contact, because he was the
King's son. It was a service that might
have been rendered with a praiseworthy
motive, deserving the thanks of his
father. Hut below every other considera
tion was the sinister desire for the
INTRIGUE-Absalom did not stand In
the gate to Judge men. He had no right
to do that- The King had not deputed
him to such buslners. He was there to
win the dissatisfied, those who came for
Justice and found it not- His method was
adroit. (Yerses 3 and 4.) He first took
skies with the ccmptalnant. After hear
ing, he pronounced tho cause Just. (Psalm
xll. z.) That was well calculated to gain
friendships. Next he declared that there
was no one authorized to sit on the case,
the same as to say that the Department
of Justice was a failure, probablr not fur
rrom the truth. That assertion was
deslgn-d to awaken crltlcsm upon David.
Then came the third point, ror which ths
other two prepared the way. an earnest
desire that he might be made JucUe.
(Prov. xxv. SIT), and a promise that h-
woum no tne nonorame thing by eacu
complainant- By these secret artifices,
feigning to be the friend to tho unfortu
nate. Absalom Intrigued day after day In
the public places, dedicated to the rights
of men. seeking to bring tho Government
of hlo rather Into contempt and to elevu'e
himself as the disinterested benefactor,
waiting and anxious to serve the peop'e.
HYPOCRISY He who would gain n fol
lowing among men must convince them
of his regard. Universal humanity Is so
Intent on personal gain a never to trust
one who does, not with unselfish surrender
become a servant. It was. therefore, nec
essary for Absalom to do more than
pr-nounce a caise lust, tegret that thero
was no one to adjudge It and offer himself
as willing to adjust the grievance. He
must exhibit the disposition ot his hetrt.
That lie did with consummate skill When
any one approached to do reverence to
him. he put forth h's hand and kissed the
person. He knew what grace it put up"n
the great to be courteous and condescend
ing, and how much It wins the common
people. (Psalm x. 9 I Absalom was a typi
cal office-seeker, and his kind ha.- ben
reproduced In this country In areat num
bers. H."s hypocrisy was succ-ssful. He
stolo the hearts of the men or Israel. Just
as now many a schemer has been per
ferred to another or greater worth. (Rom.
DECEIT At last the time came for Ab
salom to take the decided step tor the
throne or his rather The chariots, the
rorerunners. the admirers and followers
rained In the gate were only preliminary
He resolved to ratlre lo Hebron and there
be declared KInr. It Is Impossible to stste
why he selected that city. Sima think
that Judah had become meisurably dissat
isfied with David because they were
merged and overlo'ked In the large Em
pire he had established. Others think that
Absalom had gained the most followers
In that tribe, or that he resolved to begin
where his father did. (II Sam. 1L ID
Whatever his motive, he resorted to a.
trick In Its execution. He pleaded with
David that while absent In Geshur he had
vowed to serve the Lord If permitted to
return to Jerusalem, and now asked to ro
to Hebron lor that purpose. Ostensibly
he put forth a religious errand, while ac
tually he prorosed rebellion. Ho knew that
David would do as be did vend him away
with a b'es'nr.
ALLIES Before leaving Jerusalem ror
Hebron Ahsalcm took measures to secure
popular support when he should be In
vested with kingly prerogative. Spies or
messengers were sent Into all the tribes,
that the entire Israelltih nation might be
made aware at one and the same time of
what was about to transpire- It Is prob
able that these messengers went to those
who, by flattering word and obsequious
kiss, had been made friends of the young
man. An agreed s.gnal. the sound or tho
trumpet, should prc'slm to them that
Absalom reigned These arrangements

mission. (Prov. xvl. 15.) The plot was well
laid. It was expected that all suspicion
would be removed firm the minds of the
Klne and his counselors when the proces
sion moved out of the city, and that,
when, shortly aTter, the trumpets sounded

evidence that Absalom did not plan his

chosen partly because he was esteemed
very wise, and party because, through
some misunderstanding, he had been dis

services at Hebron Absalom sent tor Ahl

CONCLUSION This passage la chiefly
Instructive to sons and fathers. Here is
an exhibition of unprincipled ambition.
The outcome will appear next week. But
no one can view with approval the mo
tives ana conduct or Absalom. Whatever
may resalt. Standing In tho rate, with
obsequious kiss and flattering words, con
demning the Government and commend
ing himself, departing to a distant place
with professions of loyalty to God. yet
sending cut spies to proclaim him King,
worshiping In Hebron, yet seeking the
counsel of one who. known for bis cun
ning, had been thrust out of public con
fidence. Absalom Is a pattern or deceit
and fraud. On the other hand, w hat shall

(Prov. xxll, 6.) David could fight battles
and bclld an Empire. He could write
hymns and establish public worship. He
could gather treasure and enrich a na

like many other great men. he was not
eminently successful as a father. (Eph.
