Lesson lll.—Second, Quarter, For
April 18, 1915.
THE INTERNATIONAL SERIES.
Text of th« Lesson, Ps. xxiii—Memory
Verses, Ps. xxiii—Goldsn Text, Ps.
xxiii, I—Commentary Prepared by
Rev. D. M. Bteams.
This most familiar of all the psalms
to many people is as farreaehing as
any and will have its complete fulfill
ment only in the kingdom when Isa.
zl, 10, 11; Jer. xxiii, 5, C; Ezek. xxxvii,
21-28, shall be fulfilled in the eyes of
all-Dutlous. with every other prediction
concerning Israel's future glory. All
the true shepherds and shepherdesses
of the Bible are suggestive of Christ
und Israel, with some reference also
to Christ and His church. He is pri
marily the Shepherd of Israel, leading
Joseph like a flock, dwelling between
the cherubim (Ps. lxxx, 1). He Is also
the Good Shepherd giving His life for
the sheep and giving eternal life to His
sheep, the sheep of His pasture (John
x. 11. 27. 28; Ps. c, 3). He Is the
Great Shepherd risen from the dead,
by whom God works in His people
that which is well pleasing in His sight
(Heb. xlll. 20, 21). He is also the chief
Shepherd, who. at the resurrection of
the just, will give the crowns to those
who have won them and among others
the crown of glory to those who have
faithfully the flock (I Pet. v, 1-4).
All the shepherds, such as Abel, Ja
cob, Joseph, Moses and David, were
wolidrously typical of the Good Shep
herd. and the women also, such as
Rachel and Zlpporah, who kept sheep,
give us much to meditate updn. but all
centers upon Him who is altogether
lovely and of whom our souls say,
"My meditatiou of Him shall be sweet:
I will’be glad in the Lord'* (Song v, 16;
Ps. civ, 34). The sequences of Scrip
ture are most interesting and helpful
studies, and in Psalm xxii. xxiii.
xxiv, we have one of the most wonder
ful. Ps. xxii tells very fully of His
sufferings, as If written by an eye
witness; df>eaks of His bands and feet
pierced. His garments divided and lots
cast upon His vesture, and quotes some
of the very words flung at Him as He
bung upon the cross, but It also tells of
the resurrection and the kingdom.
Ps. xxiii suggests Israel's glory In the
millennial kingdom, and Ps. xxiv tells
of the King of glory ruling the whole
world in righteousness.
No one cau truly say “The Lord is
my Bhepherd” who has not seen Him
dying In their stead, bearing -their sins
In His own body and received Him Se
their own Bavlour (Gal. it 20; I Pet.
11. 24: John 1. 12; Epta. U 7). Then
only can we be sore that we shall
never want any good thing, for He
who spared not His own Son will
with Him also freely give us all things
(Ps. xxxiv, 9. 10: Ixxxiv, li; Rom. vtii.
32). It Is impossible that snch a Shep
herd could withhold from any of His
sheep anything really good for them.
Pasture* of tender grass and waters
of quietness (Ps. 11, margin), such
would He have ns enjoy always If we
would only keep dose to Him and not
stray away like a lost sheep, choosing
our own pasture and causing Him to
grieve over us. saying. “Oh. that my
people had hearkened unto me and
Israel had walked In my ways” (Ps.
lxxxl. 11-16). Although none of His
sheep can ever perish, they may wan
der and need restoration, as when Da
vid said. “I have gone astray like a
lost sheep; seek thy servant.'' or, again.
“Restore unto me the joy of salva
tion** (Ps. cxlx. 17C; 11. 12). He will be
glad to lead us In the paths of right
eousness if we are only willing to be
thus led. Thus only can we foretaste
the kingdom and know something of
Its peace and quietness and assurance.
The expression “the shadow of
death" Is just one word and is found
ten times in Job. four times In the
Psalms and four times In the prophets.
It may refer to the whole time of our
sojourn here for we may be said to
be always In the shadow of death, but
the believer cau always say. “I will
fear no evil." for to the child of God
death is always gain and very far
better (Phil. i. 21. 23). frost his never
s|token of as the coming of Christ, for.
although death brings gain to the be
liever. it Is always an enemy, the last
enemy to l»e destroyed (I Cor. xv. 20).
In life or death, if we are Ills. He Is
always with us to guide, comfort, sus
tain. protect us and assures us that
He will never leave us or fall us (Dent
xxxl, 8; Isa. xli. 10. 13: Heb. xlll. 3).
The table the presence of enemies
will have a great fulfillment at the be
ginning of the next age. when He w ill
come In glory for Israel’s deliverance
It will then be a feast of fat things,
when He will take away the rebuke
of His people from off all the earth
(Isa. xxv. 6-0». For the believer there
is always a feast ami we may be day
by day satisfied with the fatness of
His bouse and drink of the river of His
pleasures (Ps. xxxvi. 8). It Is a
pros oh to the Lo'iyl when Ills |»eo|>te
are seen seeking satisfaction at the
world's table. When truly anointed
with the Holy Spirit we shHll so enjoy
the Lord an(l His fullness that there
shall be an overflow for others, but
liow few seem to overflow! Some one
has said that with the Lord going be
fore (John x. 4) snd with goodness snd
mercy following (verse 6) we are cared
for ns only heaven can cere for us.
Then to think of our forever home,
from which we shall go no more out
(John xfv. 1*8): only unbelief can make
