'We 'have had' two lessons onl the life
O 'of a good king. one who belleved God
iand trembled at His word and sought
very earuestly to lead the people to
know and trust aid serve lil3i. NOW
we have before us a sonif that same
king. sitting on the samie throne. the
throne of the Lord ti Chron. :xxix, .
as the Lord's represeitative. but ihe
h:ts no respect for ( odr fo1'1r II 'iiid.
The ten tribes, the kingdm01i Of Isr:tI',

of their persistent rebellion aga:!si
God, and now the two tribes. king
dom of Judah, were nearing thend 4
God's patience with them. IIl s
than twenty years from the date of out
lesson (see verse 1) the judgment Lad
fallen upon thei. and they were cap
tives at Babylon. When men persist
ently blaspheme God and refuse t
listen to Him. then Ile speaks in judg
ment, bit Ip to the last with a desire
that men may not perish eternally.
See verse 3 and Job xxxiii. 29, 30.
Jeremiah was the Lord's messengel
during the last forty years before thc
captivity of .udah. eighteen years of
the reign of Josiah and twenty-two of
Jehoikim and Zedekiamh,:umd now after
he had been the Lord's faithful witness
for about twenty-two of the forty
years he is commanded to write in a
ook the Lord's words agaiust IIis peo
ple if perchance they might return tc
the Lord and the threatened judgments
ie averted. It is no easy inatter to be
a witncss against evil and evildoers
and Jeremiah was told at the begin
ning of his ministry, "They shall fight
against thee, but they shall not prevai.
against thee, for I am with thee. saitl
the Lord, to deliver thee" (chapter i.
19). Isaiah and Ezekiel were also fore
warned that the people would not re
- ceive their message. The apostles wert
sent forth as sheep in the midst of
wolves, and we are assured tha1
throughout this whole age there will
be wayside and rocky soil hearers. nu
tares vill grow with the -wheat till tie
harvest, while in the last days there
will only be a form of godliness, with
out the power, and people will not en
dure sound doctrine (11 Tim. iii, 1-5
Verse 4 of our lessou chapter teacbes
us that Scripture is the word of the
Lord. There may be a man's pen an
a man's mouth, but the words are th<
words of the Lord. See chapter i, ;
II Sam. -xxiii, 2; Deut. xviii, 18; Matt
r In Jeholkim, the professed represent
ative of God, cutting and burning the
words of the Lord without fear o3
trembling we see a foreshadowing o:
the destructive criticism of our own day
which will not tolerate the word o:
God concerning sin or judgment to
r-Ome or anything supernatural, wil
not believe in a Saviour conceived by
the Holy Spirit nor in the resurrectiot
of the dead, has no use for the atone
ment of Christ and therefore no in
terest in' foreign missions. Like the
prophets of Jeremiah's time, thel
prophesy falsely, .speak a vision 0;
their own heart and cause p~eople t<
err by their lies and their lightness
and the people seem to love to have i
so (Jer. v, 30, 31; xxiii, 1G, 32; Isa. xxx
In all ages God has His remnant o.
ir faithful ones, and there were those wh<
begged Jehoikim not to burn the roll
, but he would not hear (verse 25). H<
had no use for such words as these
"He that. being often reproved, hard
eneth his neck, shall suddenly be do
stroyed, and that without remedy'
(Prov. xxix, 1), but he had hatred ant
,imprisonment for those who woul(
dare to reprove him (verse 20), remind
ing us of the words of Ahab concern
ing Micaiah, "I hate him, for he neve:
prophesied good unto me, but alway!
evil" (II Chron. xviii, 7), and recallini
the words of our Lord also, "If thi
world hate you, ye know that it hatet
Me before It hated you" (John xv, 1S)
The princes, knowing the temper o:
their king, had advised Baruch ant
Jeremiah to hide themselves, and nov
E we read that the Lord hid them (verse:
19, 26). When the Lord hid Elijah
E Ahab could not possibly find him (
( Kings xvii, 3: xviii, 10). There is
hiding from God and a hiding in Got
i (Gen. iii, S, 10: Isa. xxviii, 17; 11, 10
Zeph. ii, 3). Happy are those who cai
i tiuly say, "My lIfe Is hid with Chris
n in God" (Col. iii, 3).
SHowever much men may seek to de
e stroy the word of God and seem t<
succeed, the true child of God t'ejoice:
e in Ps. exlx, SO, "Forever. 0 Lord, Th:
word is settled in heaven," and Isa
i xl, S, "The word of our God shall stant
C forever." The Lord saw Jehoikim':
