LESSON TEXT nead Psalms 123 1M
GOLDEN TEXT With Jehovah there Is
loving kindness and with him Is plenteous
redemption Ps 1307
The lessons or tho pnst your are tho
only ones In the six years course which
nro divided between the Ola nnd the
New Testament therefore tit the
close of this year we w 111 review only
the last two quarters emphasizing tho
fourth which 1ms just been completed
Like Moses on Mount Nobo let us
gluuce over tho whole period of tho
monarchy nnd note tho progress nnd
development of the Jewish people Tho
Jewish nice is the marvel of nil times
n nation without n country scattered
nnd peeled chastised nnd driven from
Ben to sen even slnln In lnrge num
bers yet possessed of a vltullty which
lina caused them to endure through
tho centuries Their contribution to
the civilization of the world bus been
Immeasurable There Is no walk or
rnnk In life In politics literature nrt
science business religion or nny oth
er renlm where they have not made
their Impress nnd rendered their con
tribution Any moscment which seeks
to promote their welfnre nnd to
strengthen the bonds of sympnthy
which preserve race feelings deserves
the aid of nil patriotic liberty loving
God fearing people for tho Jews nre
Btlll Gods chosen heritage
The united kingdom with Its three
Wngs Saul David nnd Solomon Inst
cd from about 1100 II C to DS3 Mee
cher a period of 120 years Then be
gins the divided kingdom Juduh and
Israel fcldo by side n double oxpnl
ment In the progress of the Kingdom of
God This peilod extended from about
1S2 B C to approximately 723 or 721
B C Judah had n territory of about
8400 square miles Israel 0400 Ju
dahs capital wns Jerusalem In which
was tho temple Israels capital wns
Samaria while it had two centers of
false worship Judah was more shel
tered than Israel from close contact
with heathenism especially politically
nnd religiously Judah had one dyn
asty of rulers eleven kings and one
queen all of them from the house of
David Isrnel had nineteen kings be
longing to nine different families or
dynasties Judah bad several very
good kings and there were marked re
vivals of religion of prosperity and of
deterioration of varying degrees
though resisted from time to time and
helped nlong moral and religious lines
through the work of Elijah nnd Ellsha
the prophets Tho final period of
events of this past quarter have refer
ence to Judah alono from the days of
Hczoklah II C 722 to the time of the
destruction of the city nnd the templo
being destroyed fSG B C nnd lastly
we have the period of the exile from
the first captivity In 005 B C to the
restoration nnd the new temple being
erected C10 B C This wns a period
of great discipline nnd sifting as like
into wheat or of a purifying fire
The return from exile nnd the new
Spiritual nation dates from nhout 530
to the close of Bible history say 400
years before tho coming of Christ A
map should be used and the scholars
ought to bo familiar with the contem
poraneous secular history There nre
f everal particular lessons we ought to
learn from this history
First Every failure every moral
wrong every fall into Idolatry every
diminution of power for good Is tho
result of a separation from Ood n
departure from the ways of God and
righteousness It nlso shows us that
Gods constant solicitude thnt tho Jews
should he kept separate from henthen
Ism and Idolatry had In It the best
Interests of his own people and could
only lead to those blessings which ho
had prepared for his particular people
Secondly Tho overthrow of Israel
Is directly attributed to Its complete
abandonment to Idolatry Beginning
with false worship and n dependence
Upon men there wns the Introduction
of Idolatry nnd a development of evil
which led to n rapid decline the In
troduction of revolutions nnd tho final
extinguishment of the kingdom
As to Judnh It finally was brought
Into captivity because that was the
only way that God could purge the nn
tlon from tho bin of Idolatry They
must be taught that there Is but one
God that the word of God must be
obeyed and that their safety lay In
the faith which they placed In his
promises The leaders of this period
wero Zerubbnbel Ezra and Nehemlnh
licrolc men men of great consecration
nnd power nlso Esther the heroine
The prophets of this period nre Dan
lei Isuluh Ilncgal Zecharlau Malachl

Old Year Adieu
Old Father Time with visage
Marks finis on another year
His harvest he has gathered In
The swath was wide both far
and near
The strife of battle rages round
The ranks of fighters In the
But clashing arms and ehouts
Of victor and of conquered
The aged aire with trembling
And hoary lock of silvery
Perceives the passing of the
The sunsets glow- the clouds
of night
Mayhap there la a vacant chair
At home but recently re
A loved one gone above to wear
The crown of bliss by angola
The path to glory may not lead
With roses strewn about the
But hope and strive by Word
and deed
Some soul to cheer The New
Year greetl
