Text of the Leuson, Ezra viii, 21-32.
Memory Verses, 21-28-Golden Text,
Ezra viii, 22-Commentary Prepared
by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
[Oopyright, 1905, by American Pres Asociation.)
We have before us today the record
of a journey which occupied about four
months (vil, 9) and was participated in
by about 1,800 people, carrying with
them 650 talents of. silver and 100 tal
ents of gold (about $3,500,000), in addi
tion to vessels of gold and silver and
brass, and, although the dangers of the
journey were many, they were deliv
ered from all their enemies and reached
their destination in safety without any
human protection whatever.
This is something worth inquiring
into, for in these days of "fear on every
side" if we can learn to "serve Him
without fear in holiness and righteous
ness before Him all the days of our
life, being delivered out of the hand
of our enemies" (Jer. xx, 3; Luke 1, 74,
75), it would greatly glorify God. All
these thingi were written for our bene
fit (Rom. xv, 4) that we may learn
how to have the hand of our God upon
us for good (verse 22; vii, 6, 9, 28), in
the face of our enemies. Many years
had passed since Zerubbabel and his
company of 49,000 had gone up from
Babylon to Jerusalem by the decree of
Cyrus (chapter ii, 1, 04, 65)-the temple
had been rebuilded and the passover
had been kept (vi, 34, 22)-but as time
sped on.the tendency to wander away
from God, which is common to all, be
came very manifest and Israel had be
come very much mixed up with the
people of the land (ix, 1, 2). It is the
purpose of God that His people should
be specially His -own, a people. for
Himself, In whom He can live and
through whom He can make Himself
known to others (Ex. xix, 4, 6; Isa.
xliii, 21; Ps. Iv, 3; Tit 1i, 14, R. V.),
and all conformity to the ways of
those who are not of God grieves
.the Spirit of God and hinders Him in
His loving purpose. If this rebellion
against God is persisted in He will
chasten His people, for "whom the
Lord loveth He chasteneth" (Heb. xli,
6; Rev. 1ii, 19; Amos ii, 2). He had
just chastened Israel for seventy
years In Babylon and had restored
them, according to His promise by
Jeremiah, but they were already prov
ing themselves the same rebellious,
stiff necked Israel (Deut ix, 6, 24). So
It is always, and the men like Abel,
Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Elijah, Elsha,
Ezra, Nehemiah, are few indeed. When
such men are found, the ,way that God
can turn things in their favor Is seen
In chapter vil, 1-23, supplying them
with abundance, to be freely used for
the work and according to. the wil of
God. The whole heartedness of Ezra
toward God is seen in the first verse
of our lesson and in vii, 10.
When Ezra might have had soidiers
and horsemen for the asking to pro
tect them on their journey it must
have seemed to human wisdom great
folly not to ask for them, for many
would say, "Does not God use such in
strumentality?" But Ezra had become
acquainted with Him who was to
Israel a pillar of cloud by day and a
pillar of fire by night, to. guide and
protect Israel in all their wilderness
journeying. He knew of the hosts
which Elisha's servant saw when his
eyes weze opened (II Kings, vi, 17). A
real Christian is a supernatural kind
of person who walks by fegith, not by
sight, and to whom things -unseen are
more real than all things seen by our
natural eyes. There Is no spiritual
benefit In fasting for its own sake, but
when we desire God and to know Him
more than we desire food for the body,
when we honestly humble ourselves
before Him and desire above all things
His will, His way, His glory, then He
will not fall to show Himself -strong
in our behalf. -
We are always passing through an
enemy's country,'- and the prince of
this world as a roaring lion Is ever
seeking whom he may devour, for we
wrestle not against .flesh and blood
(visible things and people), but ggainst
the powers of darkness and wicked
spirits in the heavenlies (I Pet v~, 8;
Eph. vi, 12); so we must never cease to
watch and pray, but we need have no
fears, for He that is with us is strong
er than our adversary, and "If God be
for us who can be against us?" As
truly as Ezra and hisscompany reached
Jerusalem In safety so shall all the
redeemed of the Lord' be delivered out
of the mouth of the lion and from
every evil work and be preserved unto
His heavenly kingdom -(II Tim. iv, 17,
18). .Not our faithfulness, but the faith
fulness of our God and Saviour, is our
comfort as we journey on through life.
The silver and the -gold and the yes
ses delivered to the pilests to be
wathed over and kept safely and
handed over to the proper persons at
Jerusalem suggest to the believer that
e also has certain things delivered to
him -for which he must give an ac
count, as It .is written, "Sot, then, every
one of us shall give account of hilmself
to God" (Rom. xiv, 12). The analogy
Is, however, not a very good one, for
these priests delivered up at their
journey's end only whate they bad re
eeved In - Babylon, whereas the be
liever, having received at his conver
sion, or at the b'eginntar of his life
Journey .(for no one has life till he re
eeves Christ, I John v, .10; John 1, 12),
his pound or talent or' talents, Is ex
pected to so use on the iway that which
he pas received that be can gladly
testify to Its -increase -at the judgment
seat of Christ (Matt. xxv, 27).
The salvation we,freely receive is to
be worked out, and we are debtors to,
all who have not received the gospel
to give it to them speedily (Phil. Ii, 13;
Rom. 1, 14-16). Kept by the power of
God, safe in the handeof our Redeemer,
we are to. let Him use us In any way
He pleases for His-glory...

Does the Sun Set?
"It Ill becomes any of us to criticise
lapses in -grammar," says an authority,
"when we all of us consent to and
constantly make use of one such lapse
ourselves. To speak of the 'setting
sun' is wholly incorrect You may set
a book on a table or even set a son on
a chair If he be big enough not to fall
off, but what does the orb of day set,
and where does it set? No, sir, queer
as it may sound to ears grown accus
tomed to the universal form, the sun
sits. If it sets anything why doesn't
it raise something? If it shouldn't be
the rising and-the sitting sun It should
be the raising and the setting sun.

and that he would be permitted a -few

markable spectacle. So carried away
was he by the glory of the panorama
that he even forgot-to note down the

The wives of two British army of
ficers who had been stationed for a
long time in India met recently in Lon
don and went to a restaurant to take
luncheon together. As their talk was
of a personal and somewhat private
nature, they fell to conversing in Hin
doostanee. This aroused the curiosity of
the waiter attending them to bursting
point. He presently came forward and
said gravely: "Excuse me, -madame,
but I think it only right to Inform you
that I understand French."

The second toe should be longer than
the others to denote an artistic temper

and romance and imagination. If the

linaton toward realism will be check

sense. In the purely artistic foot the
