LESSON
(By REV. P. °B FITZWATER, D. D.,
Teacher of English Bible In the Moody
Bible. Institute of Chicago.)
(Copyright, 1918, Western Newspaper
Union.)
LESSON FOR JANUARY 5
PHARAOH OPPRESSES ISRAEL.
LESSON TEXT—Exodus 1:7*2:8.
GOLDEN TE3XT—He shall save the
children of the needy, and shall break in
pieces the oppressor.—Psalms 72:1
DEVOTIONAL READING—Psallns 2.
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL-Exodus 6:1
|1 Hebrews. 11:23-27.
The book from which the next eight
lessons are taken Is a continuation of
the story of the chosen people. Its
central theme Is redemption—the de
liverance of Israel from bondage and
their separation unto God. The ques
tion of relationship from Egyptian'
bondage is a type of our own redemp
tion from sin's bondage (I Corinthians
5:7). Pharaoh represents the devil,
and Egypt the world.
I. The Increase of the Chosen 8eed
(1:7).
After Joseph's death Israel quickly
grew Into a nation. This Increase was
the fulfillment of Genesis 35:11, which,
promise was repeated to Jacob just be
fore going Into Egypt (Genesis'46:3).
If it be the problem of how a little com
pany of seventy persons could become
an host of six hundred thousand men
In so short a time, let us remember
that God promised It, and all difficul
ties will vanish. There is a time com
ing when there shall be another amaz?
ing Increase in Israel (Ezekiel 36:10,
11, 37, 38 37:26).
II. A New Dynasty (1:8-10).
Joseph's elevation In Egypt was dur
ing the reign of the Hyksos kings. Be
ing of Semitic origin they ^vere not
hostile to the Hebrews, but when there
"arose up a new king which knew-not
Joseph" (v. 8) the amazing growth of
the Israelites excited bis envy and'
fear (wv9,-10). This1 fear was two
fold: (1) In case of war they might
Join the enemy and fight against them/
(2) Lest they should remove from the
land, thus cutting off a vital source-ef
revenue and exposing- to danger the
eastern border of the land.
III. Measures to Check the Growth
•f Israel (1:11-22).
These measures, place on exhibition
the folly of worldly wisdom (1 Corin
thians 3:19). Their fatal mistake was
that they left God out of their calcula
tions. God had promised that Israel
should be great in numbers and mighty
In power. He who plans against God
shall jplserably fall and shall be shown
to be a fool.
1. Cruel Taskmasters (w. 11-14).
They were placed'under heavy bur
dens. Gruel taskmasters were placed
fiver them who forced them to labor
in building treasure cities and all man
ner of service In the field. This meas
ure was Ineffectual, for "the more they
afflicted them, the more they multi
plied and grew." This rapid growth
resulted in more Intense .burdens being
heaped upon them.
2. Murder of Male Infants'by the
Mldwlves (vv. 15-21). This measure
also miscarried, as the midwlves
feared God and chose to obey him. Be
cause they refused to destroy God's
people he gave them homes and chil
dren and the joys thereof.
3. Drowning of Male Children in the
River (v. 22). In order to make, this
measure effective all the people were
charged with the responsibility of cast
ing the Hebrew male children Into the
river. This mandate seems to have
been given shortly before Moses was
born. This plan likewise was foiled,
and the very child who when a man
upset Jiis throne, was sheltered and
nurtured In his own palace.
IV. The Birth and Education of
Moses (2:1-8).
The measure which was designed to
destroy the Hebrew menace, also
brought to Pharaoh's palace and edu
cated there the very man who after
Ward shattered the Egyptian power
and set free the enslaved people. The
faith of Moses* parents caused them to
ignore the command of the king and
hide him for three months (Hebrews
11:23). Faith in God Is the antidote
for fear (Psalms 27:1). His mother
discerned to him a proper child, or a
child fair to God (Acts 7:20), and be
lieved bim to be the deliverer-of his
people. She no doubt iqstlUed this
truth in his mind from his childhood.
Perhaps led by the story of Soab's ark
she made an ark of bulrushes and
placed Moses in It and left it at the
place where Pharaoh's daughter would
be attracted when she came down to
bathe. Miriam, his sister, was placed
where she could watch the affair^ She
came with a suggestion at the oppor
tune moment" as tp a nurse for the
baby. Education at his mother's knee
gave character, and education at the
Egyptian court qualified him to be the
historian and lawgiver of his people.
Necessary Ingredients.
"Love sufferetb long and Is kind
love envletb not love vaunteth not
itself." Get these ingredients into
your life. Then evei'ything that you
do is eternal. It is worth doing. It
is worth giving time to.
Self-DenlaU
Self-denial when regularly kept up
and not only Indulged now and then,
out of laziness or partial affection, Is
one of the clearest tokens that God's
holy spirit Is with men. preparing
them for eternal glory.—Keble.~
OLD PRESCRIPTION
FOR WEAK KIDNEYS
Have you ever Btopped to reason why
it is that so many products that are ex
tensively advertised, all at once drop ou£'
of sight and are sobn forgotten? The
reason is plain—the article did not fulfil
the promises of the manufacturer. This
applies more particularly to a medicine.
A medicinal preparation that has real
curative value almost sells itself, as like
an endless chain system the remedy is
recommended by those who have been,
benefited, to those who ate in need of it.
A prominent druggist says, "Take for
example Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root,
preparation I have sold for many yean
and never hesitate to recommend, for la
almost every case it shows excellent re
sults, as many of my customers testify.
No other kidney remedy that I know ef
has so large a sale."
According to sworn statements and
verified testimony of'thousands who have
used the preparation, the success of Dr.
Kilmers' Swamp-Root is due to the faet
that so man? people claim, it fulfills al
most every wish in overcoming kidney,
liver and bladdep ailments, corrects UT
mary tronblesvand neutralizes the urie
which causes rheumatism.
TTou may receive a sample bottle ef
Swamp-Root Vy Parcel Post. AddrsM
Dr. Kilmer ft Co., Binghamton, N. Y., and
enclose ten cents also mention this paper.
Large and medium size bottles for salt
at all drug stores.—Adv.

thing for fifteen or twenty minutes, or'
even longer. Because they are unaov
customed to concentrating, their minds

sparingly feel that they are doomed to
be butterfly-minded all their lives.

occasional minute should be given to
earnest concentration. Gradually the
exercise periods may be lengthened.

bered that, after all, the main end In
view is not ability to concentrate for
long periods, but ability to concentrate
intensely when the occasion arises for
concentrating at all. It is the quality,
not the quantity, of concentration that
.counts for most.
