Text of the LeNson, Dan. i. S-20.
Memory Verxen, 16, 1'7-Golden Text,
Dan. 1, 8-Commentary Prepared by
Rev. D. M. Stearnn.
[Copyright. 1005, by American Press Ausociation.]
We should be indeed grateful for
three lessons from the wonderful book
of Daniel, but more would have been
better. Notice our Lord's indorsement
of the prophet and his book in Matt.
xxiv, 15, and also Daniel's assocla
i tion with Noah and Job In Ezek. xiv,
14, 20. Sir Isaac Newton said, "He
who denies Daniel's prophecies un
dermines Christianity, which is found
ed on Daniel's prophecies concerning
Christ." The time had come, foreseen
by God from all eternity, when the
dearly beloved of His soul (Jer. xii, 7)
should be given into the hand of her
enemies, and the times of the gen
tiles begin, the seven times during
which He would punish them for their
sins as He had said (Lev. xxvi, 18, 21,
24, 28). There is every reason to be
lieve that we are now near the ful
filling of the times of the gentiles of
which our Lord spoke in Luke xxi,
24, and consequently the time of ever
lasting righteousness for Daniel's peo
ple (Dan. ix, 24).
Believers are somewhat like Daniel
at Babylon, in the world, but not of it,
and from him and his companions we
may learn how we should live in these
evil days of this present evil age. In
whatever part of the Bible we may
have our studies there are two things
we must always note, and those are
God working and the devil working,
and they work, as a rule, through
visible agencies such as people and
circumstances, but also by invisible
ageucies (Eph. vi. 12 leb. i, 14; Dan.
x, 12, 13).
The book opens with the record of
Jehoiakim, the king who cut and
burned the word of God (Jer. xxxvi,
23), given into the hands of the king
of Babylon by the Lord who doeth ac
cording to His will both In heaven
and on earth (chapters 1, fl; iv, 35).
Among the captives of Judah are
found Daniel and his companions,
and they are chosea to be trained and
taught that in due time they. may
stand before the king among his
wise men. While being taught the
wisdom of the Chaldeans they are to
be nourished with food and wine
from the king's table, bu. Daniel de
termined that he and his companions
would not defile themselves with food
which had been offere.d to idols, they
being worshipers of the only living
and true God and believing that what
Is not 'offered to Him is offered to
demons (Lev. xvii, 7: D'eut. xxxii, 17;
[ Cor. x, 20).
All trune believers are commanded to
do all things, even to eating and drink
ing, to the glory of God (I Cor. x, 31),
and this one command covers the
wvhole temperance question for the
Christian. Daniel coveted to please
IGod abov'e all things, and he knew
that the world's dainties would not
help him to know the secret of the
Lord, which is only with them that
fear Him. There was probably a
thought in Daniel's mind as to how he
would be delivered from partaking of
the food from tne king's .table, but he
no doubt talked with God about it be
fore he talked with the prince of the
eunuchs, and God gave him the favor
of the prince (verse 9). 'When a
man's ways please the Lord, He
naketh even his enemies to be at
peace with him" (Prov. xxix, 25). See
also Gen. xxxix, 21; II Chron. xvi, 9;
Acts vii, 9, 10.
The fear which the prince of the
eunuchs had is a very common one.
but the child of God should have no
fear of aught but grieving God. See
I John lxv, 2S; II Tim. 1, 7; Heb. ii, 15;
Gen. xv, 1.
Daniel felt that he could ask the
blessing of God upon the food on
which he proposed to live, and noth
ing can comupare with the blessing of
God which maketh rich and carries
no sorrow wvith .it, or, according to the
RI. V., margin, to which toll addeth
nothing. Those who honor God He
will honor (I Sam. ii, 30; John xii, 26),
and vwe may be sure that If we make
His service our delight He'll make our
wants His care. We are not sur
prised, therefore, to find that at the
end of the tea days the countenances
of Daniel and his companions were
fairer and fatter in flesh than all the
others who ate the portion of the
king's meat. Special health of body
was one of God's promises to the
faithful In Israel (Ex. xv, 26; Deut.
vii, 15; Jer. xxxiii, 8), and In Rom.
vii, 11, it is possible that there is
something for us on the same line. It
is true that the great atonement covers
the body as well as the soul, but we
cannot have the redemption of the
body till Jesus comes again (Rlom. viii,
23; Phil. iii, 20, 21; I John Iii, 2).
Glorious foretastes of the new body
are granted to us even here, and the
bodies of some who lived in sin be
come so changed by the grace of God
as hardly to seem the same. Note in
verse 17 the knowledge and skill in all
learning and wisdom which God gave
unto them. No doubt they studied
diligently, but He that is perfect in
knowledge was with them (Job xxxvi,
4) and helped them and taught them
many things not found in the books
of the Chaldeans. He still giveth
wisdom to all who sincerely ask Him
(as. 1, 5). There is no capital that
can compare with a heart and a head
right with God. A pure heart and a
clear head sanctified and enlightened
by the Holy Spirit through the merits
of the Lord Jesus Christ are the great
est of blessings, but these no one can
have who indulges the lugts of the
flesh (Eph. v, 18; 1 Cor. vi, 10).

Most people constantly suffer from
loss of appetite, especially for break
fast, an unpleasant taste in the mouth,
low spirits: irritability, with a heavy,
dull headache, bilioiusness, sick head
ache, blotches on the skin, lack of en
ergy and a feeling of weariness, all of
which are due to constipation. Consti
pation is the forerunner of indigestioD,
sluggish liver and nervousness, and it
is of the utmost importance that the
bowels should be gently regulated by a
reliable aperient. Dr. King's Blood
