[Copyright, 1905. by Amnerican Press Association.)
In all these Old Testament studies
Israel Is the center, as she is the center
of all God's purposes concerning the
whole earth. When He divided the
earth among the nations after the del
uge He did it with reference to the
children of Israel (Gen. x, 25; Deut.
xxxii, 8), and some day we shall look
back from the gloryland and be sur
prised to see, as we cannot now, how
all God's dealings with the nations in
all ages have had some reference to
His people Israel, for it is His purpose
that Israel shall blossom and bud and
fill the face of the earth with fruit and
that all nations shall go up from year
to year to worship the King, the Lord
of Hosts, at Jerusalem (Isa. xxvii, 6;
Jer. iii, 17, 18; Zech. xiv, 16). All na
tional disputes shall be settled there,
and the work of righteousness shall be
peace on all the earth, for "the king
dom shall be the Lord's" (Obad. 21).
The time of our lesson is the twen
tieth year of Artaxerxes (1, 1; ii, 1), or
thirteen years after Ezra went up to
Jerusalem with his company (Ezra vili,
7). Nehemiah is the king's cupbearer,
a Jew at a gentile court, like Joseph,
Moses, Daniel or Mordecai, but his
heart Is with his people at Jerusalem.
From certain Jews who had returned
from Jerusalem he learned the sad
condition of affairs there-that the peo
ple were In great affliction and re
proach and the wall of the city had
never been rebuilt (verse 3).- He took
It greatly to heart and wept and
mourned and fasted before the God of
heaven (verse 4), and the burden of
our lesson today is his prayer at this
time. Another great prayer at another
time is recorded in chapter Ix, and
these and other prayers recorded In
Scripture, notably our Lord's prayer
In John xvii, are the most helpful of
studies if we would learn how to pray.
By cornparing i, 1, and ii, 1, we see
that Nehemiah had been praying full
three months before his opportunity
came to speak to the king. He had the
ear of the King of Kings for three
months before his time came to make
request of Artaxerxes. Doubtless he
was always watching for the time to
speak and to be ready when it should
come. This should be the attitude of
every prayerful one - expectant, but
patient, not trying to make occasions
or opportunities, but trusting God to
do that, and then, obedient to I Sam.
x, 7, "Do as occasion serve thee. for
God is with thee." When the time had
fully come he stated the matter frank
ly and in one breath prayed to God and
spoke to the king (it, 4, 5, 8, 1. c.), and
his petition was granted according to
the good hand of his God upon him.
It is beautiful to behold his walk with
God, his trust in God, and therefore his
fearlessness. "Neither told I man what
my God had put in my heart to do;"
"The God of Heaven, He will prosper
us" (II, 12, 16, 20).
The opening verses of our lesson
show his oneness of heart with his peo
pie at Jerusalem, and when we are In
some measure like him and have on
our hearts, as he had, the interests and
welfare of the people of God we, too,
shall see some answers to our prayers.
In verse 5 see his reverent adoration
of God and compare Jer. x, 6, 7, 10;
xxxii, 17; Ex. xxxiv, 6, 7; Acts lv, 24,
and be encouraged to trust more fully
the God of heaven and earth, the Liv
lg God who glveth us richly all things
to enjoy (I Tim. vi, 17). See how Ne
emiah says again and again "My God"
and "Our God" (11, 8, 12, 18; iv, 9, 20;
vi, 16), reminding us of David's "Our
own God" (Ps. lxvii, 6) and of Thomas'
"My Lord and my God" (John xx, 28).
Day and night he continued to confess
before God the sins of his people, tak
ing his place with them as one of them,
excusing nothing, pQallating nothing.
This is the only way of blessing (Prov.
xxviii, 13; I John 1, 9). Turn to Him
who actually took our place and suf
fered our sins to be laid upon Him,
who was made sin for us (II Cor. v, 21;
I Pet. ii, 24), and, as we see Him doing
this In love to our souls, If our whole
being does not go out to Him in glad
surrender either we do not believe the
record and receive Him as our personal
Saviour or we only see men as trees
TXhen in verses 8 and 9 he pleads
with God His promises to Moses; he
rests on the word of God and pleads
God's faithfulness. This also did Da
vid in Ps. cxix, 49, "Remember the
word unto thy servant, upon which
thou hast caused me to hope." God
loves to have us remind Him of His
word and even calls us His remem
brancers (Isa. xliii, 26; lxii, 6, margin).
How few in these days seem to re
member or to care that He has chosen
Jerusalem to put His name there.
Nehemiah is very bold In his plead
g and says notwithstanding their sin
fulness, "Tlhese are Thy servants, Thy
people, whom Thou hast redeemed."
So pleaded Moses and Daniel (Deut.
i, 29; Dan. ix, 19), and Jeremiah
prayed, "0 Lord, though our iniquities
testify against us, do Thou It for Thy
name's sae** * Thou, 0 Lord, art
in the midst of us, and we are called
by Thy name" (Jer. xiv, 7, 9).
Having poured out his soul on be
half of his people, in verse 11 Ne
hemah asks a special favor on his own
behalf, and yet It was for their sakes
as their benefactor. For this special
personal favor he patiently waited
month after month, though the distress
at Jerusalem made It seem as If he
needed an Immediate answer. Blessed
are those who have learned to rest in
the Lord and wait patiently for Him

Origin of the Metric System.
Some very interesting facts have
been collected about the foot, the most
widely used measure of length in mod
ern times. The measure is derived
from the length of the human foot, but
apparently has varied more than that
portion of the skeleton can possibly
have done In historic times. The an
cient Welsh foot, for Instance, was
nine inches long, whereas the Piedmont
foot was twenty inches. In modern
times it has varied from the Span
ish foot, of less than eleven inches. to
the Venice foot, of more than thirteen
Inches. Almost every country has used
a foot measure of a different length. It
was this confusion which led the
French to devise the metric system.

long you feel as if nothing but dynamite

her, so she took Dr. King's New Discov

which eased her cough. gave her sleep,
and finally cured her." Strictly scian
