Subject: Ancient Worship.
Kingston, N. Y.-Tle following eru
dite and cjoquent sermon on icient
Worship"' was prea ,ched Sunlay ii, Ite
Reformed Church of the Comforter by
the pastor. the Rev. C. L. Palmer. Dr.
History discloses .h t the worsh:p
of the New Testament s not the crc.
tion of the later dispensation. but is
the result of a long and complex pro
cess of evolution. All we know re
specting the time of its ineeption is
that it is as old as the human family.
which confirms the belief that religion
and life are inseparable.
Three principal elements constitute
religion, worship. doctrine and life.
Worship is the attitude of the individ
ual or nation toward its deity. Doc
trine is the abstract formation of truth
into definitions and conception. Life
is the conduct that is presupposed to
conform to one's belief. Which shall
be more prominent is determined by
the spirit of the age.
Since religion is both natural and su
pernatural we must look beyond the
former for the channels of revelation.
All creation is one harmonious doxol
ogy to the Creator. but His works do
not give us all the information re
quired for the true worship of God.
Accordingly God has appointed certain
ones to communicate His will. The
prophets were a class chosen to in
struct the people in the character and
requirements of God. Their teachings
are called the "word" of God. Sages
uttered proverbs, riddles and dialogues
while priest:s gave instruction in the
form of law, which recognized no dis
tinction between civic and religious
Notwithstanding forms and habits
have undergone many radical changes,
there are certain features of worship
that remain essentially the same.
There has always been a certain place
dedicated to the service of God. With
us it is the church, but in the early
times it was the temple. synagogue,
tabernacle. altar or grove.
A certain number of men are dedi
ated to the work of the Christian min
i4stry, but in the earlier days there
were priests and prophets who labored
for the elevation of mankind. At a
still earlier time the father of a family
or head one of a tribe or clan conduct
ed the worship.
Sacrificial offerings have been dis
ontinued among Christians, because
the Lord Jesus Christ has been sacri
ficed once for all. It was not so in
the distant past. It was then be
lieved that the fellowship between God
and His people was fostered by sacri
fice. The occasion was not unlike a
social meal in which the god of the
clan or family partook of the repast
with its members. While the original
idea of communion with the deity was
paramount. sacrifice did not assume
its full religious significance until per
fected in the temple ritual. Other
acts of worship, such as prayer and
the vow. bave ever occupied an im
portant pl.ce. as well as mu.sic, and at
times dreams. sorcery and dancing.
Worship presupposes a time for the
service of God. In the remote past
when the people lived a wandering
life, it was not possible to have a par
ticular time and place, but when they
settled down to agricultural life three
feasts were instituted, one in the
spring, another in the early summer
and the third in the autumn, corre
sponding to our modern Easter, pente
cost and thanksgiv-ing.
Worship witho'ut hymns and songs is
Inconceivable. If we w-ere deprived
of some of our favorite hymns it would
destroy one of the most potent motives
of worship. The psaLmns were just as
precious to the ancients as the modern
hymns are to us, and exerted the same
The most reliable scholars are of the
conviction that the legal code of the
Old Testament was not the result of a
single authorship, but the work of a
redactor who compiled existing tradi
tions and documents. This is more in
harmony with the method God em
ploys to accomplish His purpose, and1
is certainly explanr.tory of the way
that our Bible took form.
It should be borne in mind that it is
not my purpose to present 'the Ideal
worship of the N'ew Testament. but to
study the course of religious develop
ment that culminateil in the service of
the Christian olhurch:. In so doing we
shall encounter mary things that are
very much below thte Christian stand
ard. but we may not on that account
ignore them, since they are necessaryv
to illustrate the progress in which we
have now occasion to rejoice.
The evolution of worship is too vast
a theme to cover in one discourse,
we shall therefore confine our atten
tion to its e: rliest phases.
I. The ancient Semitic worship.
This antedates the religion of Israel.
and contains practices that would not
be endured by the church of Christ.
though we must not forget that the
now unchristian land of Arabia was
the mother of religion. The Semitic
family has given the world the two
earliest known forms of civilization
Egyptian and Babylonian and the
three highest faiths, .Tudiasm, Chr'
tianity and Mohammnedanism.
In the earliest period belief and life
constituted a very insignificant 'part of
worship. Then the eriphasis was upon
the forms. The amount of one's reli
gion was estimated by his devotion to
ceremony. It was not until a very
much later time that doctrine and
practice were given the attention they
At this time there were no states or
nations. The people were joined to
gether in families, tribes or clans.
They had no abiding place, but jour
neyed from place to place to furnish
their cattle with pasturage. The god
of the tribe was supposed to be an an
cestor, who determined their, prosper
ity or adversity.
Each tribe had its god, who could be
worsipd only by the members of the
clan. If one united with another tribe
he vas obliged to do homage to the
deity of it. Nor could the deity of one
clan bless outside of its own territory.
According to the most primitive con
ception but li-:tle importance was at
taced to the doctrine of the immortal
liv of th~e scmi. Future life has ever
beeni a1 trenet of every religious system.
but it was emphasized less thtan the
present life, since it was held thai. no
service could be rendered the deity
beyond the grave. This explains the
eason for emtbalming~ the dead.
Sacrifice occupied a maos: important
place among the Semites. And there
r traces of human sacrifices which
nder the Chrstian dispensation have
been offered only by hecathmen. The
Setites living in tribes or clans had a
oca deity to whom they oftered sacri
flee. IHI sat at the table and partook
of the slain animal.
11. The primitive Hebrew stage.
Tbs period covers the patriarc2hel and
nomaic epouh. while thte peopte wveie
still wandering about. It is not sur
risigt discovermanny points of
resemblance between this period and
the preceding. They ere just emerg
inl from the ancient darkness into the
late- day. God had assigned then
leaders who: c work it was to lead
them into the truth, but they were
slow to follow.
IBeing nomads they appointed wor
ship wherever they were. There was
no temple. talrnacle or ark. A rude
altar erected ono al i e stoner of the

family were found teraphim or house
Sacrifice still retail c1 the social as
pect so that it meant little more than a
family gathering at which the local
deity was present. .iowever, by this
time Jehovah was recognized as the
God of the Hebrew;. Other acts of
worship. such as prayer, vows and
dreams were observe 1.
There were very few if any hymns
at this time. The law had not been
fully compiled. and a limited literature.
III. This division introduces us to
the Canaanitish stat?. Great changes
took place during .bis epoch. because
the p eple of Israel discontinued their
nona dic life and settled down in the
promised land amon: tribes of foreign
faith. We naturally find that the cho
sen people suffered io little contamin
ation, of which subsequent history is
Sacred places increased in numbers
and the worship of Baal flourished.
It seems to be a time of degeneration,
for the worship of Jehovah was cor
rupted. The ark containing the two
tables of stone was transported from
one place to another. Images were
erected to represent the deity. and the
Urim and Thummim: were employed
to ascertain the will of God.
Sacrifice was regarded as communion
with the deity. The burnt offering
seems to havebeen used more than any
other. Prayer, vows. visions were
still observed, while sorcery was los
ing its hold.
Having discontinued their wandering
life they observed the Sabbath. the
feasts of the moon and of harvest. It
appears. however. that they were not
free from corruption.
Music and dancing had its place. and
it is said of David as a later time that
he danced. There were hymns. such
as the exodus song. the song of De
borah and the song of Hannah. Laws
were assuming form as the outgrowth
of custom. They wiere not written by
Moses, but compiled or formulated by
IV. The prophetfc stage. This pe
riod is so called because of the number
of prophets who Exercised a most
wholesome influenc. on the life of-the
pople. This was done by teaching a
more enlightened iorception of God.
Samuel, David, Ellib. Elisha. Isaiah
and Jonah were among those who
raised the standard of living.
The high places were still used for
the worship of Baal, and at one time
the worship of Baal and Jehovah were
consolidhted. At the tilne of David the
ark of the covenant was taken to Je
rusalem. and the temple was com
pleted in the days of Solomon. which
produced a more orderly system of
worship. Idolatrous practices were
not, however, entirely superseded. for
we read of golden calves at Bethel
The completion of the temple made
the most perfect organization and de
velopment of the priesthood impera

known between church and state, but

The acts of worship continued about
the same as in the preceding period.
except that certain restrictions were
imposed. Sacrifice was offered to es
tablish communion with God. There
was some human sacrifice. Praying to
God was becoming a pleasure, and
vows were made by Nazarites. Ora
cles and dreams were regarded as chan
nels through which .Tehovah commu
nicated His revelations. Sorcery was
practiced against the protests of the
prophets. A hymn book was in pro
cess of compilation and the priests
were compiling law.
The attitude of tile prophets toward
existing conditions will help us to ap
precite our theme and make its ap
The prophets considered the high
places as detrimental to the religious
life of the nation. They maintained
that the temple was all they required
for tile worship of the true God.
The prophets insisted upon purity of
life among the people of God, espe
cially the priests. It appears from the
records thlat the sacred office was not
entirely free from corruption.
They further insisted upon the true
worship of the heart. While admit

FOR NOVEMBER 19.
Subject: Neheiniah's Prayer,Neb. L, 1-11
-Golden Text. James v., 16-MemDory
Verses, 8, 9-Commetulary on the Day's
. Neheniah hears of the distress in
Jerusalem ivs. 1-a). 1. "The words of
Nehe'miah." Rather the narrative on
record. *Son of Hachaliah." Proba
bly the tribe of Judah and of the royal
family of David. He was cupbearer
to King Artaxerxes at Shushan. the
capital. This title implied that Nehe
mniah was a councilor, statesman, cour
tier and favorite. For twelve years he
was Governor of Judea, leading a great
religious revival and rebuilding the
walls of Jerusalem. At the end of
twelve years he went back to Persia,
but after a time he again returned to
Jerusalem and effected some -forms
there. "Month Chislen." Ninth month,
corresponding to the end of November
and the beginning of December. The
Hebrew months varied according to
the moon. "Twentieth year." Of the
reign of Artaxerxes Longimanus, who
reigned from B. C. 45 to 423. It was
under this king that Ezra was granted
letters to go to Jerusalem. 2. "Han
ani." His own brother, to whom he af
terward gave the charge of the gates
of Jerusalem (chapter 7:2). "Came."
From Jerusalem to Shushan. "I asked
them." Respecting Jerusalem and its
people. "That had escaped." From
captivity. "Which were left." The
word "left" points more specifically to
such as survived the persecutions to
which the community at Jerusalem
had been exposed.
3. "In the province." Of Juden, now
a province of the Persian empire.
"Great affliction and reproach." Their
subjection to Persia forced itself on
the Jews at every turn. The tribute
imposed on them was a heavy burden
to a poor people. Jewish recruits had
doubtless been forced into the Persian
armies. The country was pillaged in
open day, and many Jews were carried
into slavery by nightly surprises, while
the corpses of murdered men were of
ten found on the road. "Wall--down."
The wall and houses had been de
stroyed by Nebuchadnezzar more than.
140 years before (2 Kings 25:10), and
their rubbish still lay in sight. They
were partially rebuilt at one time (Ezra
4:12). The neighboring races, infur
iated at the rejection- of -their friendly
offers of assistance by Zerubbabel,
years before, and still more so by Ez
ra's recent act in sending back to their
homes all the wives of non-Jewish
races found in Jerusalem and Judea,
had attacked Jerusalem. and after
fierce struggles had broken down the
newly built walls and burned the gates.
II. Nehemiah prays for help (vs. 4
11). 4. "Wept." Perhaps now for the
first time a deep, keen sense of his peo
ple's woes came over his soul.
"Mourned." Over the condition of his
people, the desolation of the holy city,
the reproach upon the name of God.
and the sins which had brought them
to this low estate, which had not yet
been put away. "Certain days." From
Chisleu to Nisan. four months, until
the king noticed his grief. "Fasted."
A token of the genuineness of his sor
row. "Prayed." In earnest, protract
ed prayer that God would favor the
purpose which he seems to have se
cretly formed of asking the royal per
mission to go to Jerusalem.
5. "Beseech Thee." The prayer of
Nehemiahi deserves critical- study as a
model of blended adIoration, invocation,
confession, supplication and confident
appeal. "Covenant and mercy." Cove
nant refers to God's definite promises.
Mercy refers to His loving character.
which gives more than Is pledged. . 6.
"Ear-attentive-ears open." Let Thine
ear hear our confession and mercifully
pardon. Let Thine eye behold our suf
fering and send speedy succor. "Day
and night." His grief was doubtless
increased at the thought that all this
evil existed in spite of Ezra's work.
He withdrew from his court duties and
spent a time in retirement in most sin
cere sorrow. "I and my father's
house." Nehe~uiah had a clear sense
of his identification with his people in
sin as in misery. 7. "Dealt very cor
ruptly." Some of these sins are men
tioned in Neh. 3:1-7. 10. 11; 13:15; Ezra
9:1; 2 Chron. 36:14-17. "Command
ments." The moral precepts by which
out lives should be regulated. "Stat
utes." What refers to the rites and
ceremonies of thy religion. "Judg
nments." The precepts of justice rela
tive to our conduct to each other.
S. "If ye transgress." This is not a
quotation, but a reference to the gen
eral sense of various passages, such as
Lev. 26:27-30: Dent. 28:45-52. etc. The
fact that God had fulfilled His word of
threatening was a proof that He would
fulfll His word of promise. 9. "Turn
unto Me." When we turn to sin God
turns to discipline; when we turn to
