Digging around in oyster flats in the

bestowed on Marshal Foch during his
visit. And picking around in the Ar
kansas diamond mines other citizens
uncovered an Arkansas diamond,
which was presented to Hanford Mac

JUNIOR TOPIC-Elisha and the Armies
INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC
-Our Unseen Defenders.
YOUNG PEOPILiL AND ADULT TOPIC
-What Faith in the Unseen Can Do for
1. The Syrian King Sorely Troubled
(vv. 8-12). '
1. The King's plan. (v. 8). His
method was a kind of guerrilla warfare
-armed hands made incursions Into
the entmly's territory. He determined
'as to where camps should be locate:i
so as to intercuept Israel's army. His
phant1 % wits clever, but his great muis
take was that he left God out of his
calculations. There is one place
where all plans and movements tare
known. (leb. 4 :13).
2. T'le ilenmy's mliovelnelnts dis
closed (v. 9). '1'he man of Gad, know
lug the enemy's mloveinents, wits able
to tell the kinig about them. Elisha's
advit-e was InIore than it match for
the wily plans of the shrewd Ien
itiIl. Israel's safety lay moiire u
the ant of Genil than inl their wvarriors.
3. The king of Israel leededl -lisha's
w(ord (v. 1(1). This w'as true wischios.

(vv. 11, 12). In his pereIi'xity he um8

piroiihet, even tellIinhg to the king of
Israel what iHenI-hadad spake inl his
bedchamber. Ben-hadad was worried
not. because of hl sins, but because
his plans misearried.
11. The Syrian King Tries to Trap
Eligha (vv. 13-18).
1. lie sent an army to capture him
(vv. 13, 14). Upon iearinig that
Elisha was making known his ac
tions, he determined to put an end to
the liatter by trapping him and making
him11 a prisoner. how foolish to put
human cuming against divine wis
dom. Horses and chariots are useless
when God is against us. God's pur
poses cannot be thwarted. If God be
for us, wvhio can be against us?
2. Elisha's servant frightened (v.
15). Wheni he awoke one morning
lie sawal that an artmed host was en
camipinig abiout the city. Viewed from
the, human standpoInt, we (do not
wtond~er thmat lie was affrlghted.
3. Elisha's encoturageiment (v. 16).
Hie aissured his servant that, thloughi
they' were surroundedl by the SyrIan
army, there was a mightier host
of heavenly defenders round about
theml. Elisha d1(1id ot shut his8 eyes
to the real danger, butt loqked to the
helpers of God watching about thlemi.
4. ElIsha's prayer- (v. 47). He asked1
that th~e Lord wouild open21 the eyes oif
Is servant so as to see spiritual
things. Whenh thle Lord opienled thle
eyes (If the youing 11111 lie saw thait
"the mloutain was full of horses and
chariots of firea roulnd about\ Elisha."
Round about us all the wile are
angels guardinig use from dnnger.
5. The Syians sittent with blind
ness (v. 18). The samie God who
oplened thle eyes of the younig man11,
blinded the eyes of thle Syrianls. Glod
(deals with menitl accoiing to their
moral attitude. Wh'len men wvill ntt
hia'e tile light, God send~s dlarknless.
til. The SyrIan Army Trapped
The would-be trapplers are now
1. Army led by thie man sought by
them (vv. 19, 20). ElIsha led them
to Samnaria and asked the Lord to
open thleir eyes. When their eyes are
OPen! they saw the man whom they
souight, but not at the plaice where they
sought him. Instead of seeIng him at
Dothian as they expected, they saw
2. The generous treatment of the
Syrians (vv. 21-23). The king of Israel
wanted to smite thle captives, but
Elisha forbade himu and ordered instead
that they should be fed and sent back
to theIr master.
3. P'eace between the natIons (v. 23).
The mercy shown to the Syrians had
such a profound effect upon themi that
they came 110 more to make war upon
l'arael. WVhat a fine thing if we could
have such hutmnanity shiownl today I
