August 24.
Subject: Report of thc Spies, Num. xiii.. 1-3
and xiii., 25 to xiv., 4 Golden Text, Psa.
xl., 4?Memory Verses, 30 33?Com'
meutnry on thc Day's Lesson.
Explanatory. "Everything was now
ready for taking possession ot Cana.in,
provided the people had the necessary
faith and courage. Accordingly Moses
commanded them in the name of Jehovah
(Dent. I: 20. 21) to gp up and take posse*
lion of the land. They only needed to
trust in Cod and go forward, and in less
than two veal's from leaving Egypt the
land would have been theirs. The Cod
who had delivered them with B mighty
hand, win had made a path through the
sea, who had rained bread from heaven,
and brought water from a rock, and spoken
from Sinai and entered into covenant
with them, and was leading them with
His visible presence?this God bade them
go up and take possession of the land ol
promise. They should have trusted and
obeyed."
2. "Send thou men." The people were
nfraid to go forward, and had asked
Moses to send spies to search out the land.
Dent. 1: 22. Although it would have been
better for them to have had faith in God
and to have at once entered upon their
promised possessions, yet in ovder to sat?
isfy the people the Lord ordered Mo-:es
to send the spic*. "Of every tribe?a
mai!." Moses selected twelve leading
men. "every one a prince" (R. V.). in or?
der that the best possible results might bc
realized. "The object of the expedition
was (1) to leam what were thc attrac?
tions of thc country, (2) to discover the
difficulties in the way of taking possession,
(3) to find out thc best way of reaching
thc country, (4j to learn what prepara?
tions it was necessary to make."
4-24. in verses 4-13 wc have the names
of the spies, in verses 17-20 Moses gives
them special directions. They were to
travel tlie whole length of the land to tiie
Lebanon mountain region, and lind out all
about the land and the people, and to
bring back some of the fruit of the land.
In verses 23 and 24 we have a description
of the fruit they brought back with them.
25. "Returned?after forty days." For?
ty days were sufficient for a journey of
250 miles and the return. The spies could
'(?-.i sis Sabbaths and travel 500 miles,
going at the rate of loss than fifteen miles
a day. li is not probable tint they went
in a body, but singly or by twos.
_<i. "Tu Kadeth. Kadesh means holy.
"Shewed them tho fruit." They had
brought back grapes, pomegranates and
tigs."" The bunch of grapes was very large.
V. 23.
27. "Roweth with milk and honey.'
This was a poetical description of a coun?
try rilli in pasturage and produce. Thui
far the reports of the spies agree. They
all commend thc richness and fruitfulness
of the soil.
28. "Nevertheless." The report was
given publicly and it was ari fully arranged
to begin with commendations, in order
that their subsequent slanders might re?
ceive credit. This would introduce tho
godless majority report; there is in it no
reference to Jehovah, lt is an infidel doc?
ument. "Children of Anak." "Long
necked, famous giant?, descendants from
Arba, founder of the city of Hebron. The
spies were terrified a< sight of them."
20. "The Amalekit.es.'.' etc. These peo?
ple had already attacked the Israelites
once. Ex. 17: 8-lti. The Hittites were a
strong, warlike people. The Jebusites held
the region about Jerusalem. The Amor
ites were mountaineers.
30. "Caleb." The spy from the tribe of
Judah. He begins the minority report
with an unwavering trust in God. Joshua
also joined with him. 14: 6. 30. "Stilled
the people." A bitter wail of despair wai
going Up from the vast throng of peop'e.
31. ''We be not able." This had not
been asserted before. The ten spies are in?
creasing in their opposition.
32. "Evil report?eateth up." How un?
belief grows. At first it was only a sug?
gestion (vs. 2S. 2ft). then it became an as?
sertion (v. 31), then it assumed the form
of an "evil report.'' The spies cannot mean
that the land was barren and the inhabit?
ants dying of famine, for the fruit they
brought with them and their first report
would contradict this, but it has been
thought thal there was a pestilence in the
land at this time, and also that the spies
had learned that the people were constant?
ly engaged in wars to maintain their inde?
pendence.
33. "Sons of Anak." Anak literally sig*
nified long necked. The sons of Anak
were a race of gianis in strength. It
seems to bc a fact that in primitive times
there were men of great stature.
1. "All the congregation." There were
a few noble exceptions, however. "Wepl
that night." These loud waitings, resound?
ing by night from tent to tent and from
tribe to tribe, spread the contagious de?
spondency through the whole camp. They
were surrounded by the dark and chilling
clouds of unbelief, and were occupied with
themselves and their difficulties instead
of with God and His resources. All this
grief was on account of imaginary troubles.
2, 3. "Better?to return." They mur?
mured against Moses and Aaron amT
wished to return to their former life of
servitude. "Their wish to return to the
groaning*, burdens, tasks anti insults of
the brick yards of Egypt, from which a
pitying Jehovah had led them forth was
indicative of n base ingratitude and a ser?
vility of spirit exceedingly offensive."
4. "Make a captain." They repudiated
Moses and Aaron and Jehovah. According'
to Nehemiah 9: 17 they actually appointed
a captain to lead them back to the task?
master's lash in Egypt. Moses and Aaron
then fell on their faces before the people
and Joshua and Caleb rent their clothes
as a sign of (heir great grief, and made a
I strong appeal to the congregation in fa-'
I vor of taking the land at once. Tint the
people like a frenzied mob tried to stone
them to death, and were prevented from.
so doing only by the glory of tiie Lord'
shining forth from the tabernacle. "The!
majesty of Jehovah flashed forth suddenly]
to strike tho people with tenor in their
rebellion, and lo deter them from their
wicked design." Cod now threatened the
nation with destruction, and they would
have perished but for the prayer ol' Moses.
The ten spies were smitten willi thc
plague and died. Every person over twen?
ty years of ase, except the two faithful
spies, was to die before the nation entered
Canaan. As a reward for their faithful?
ness Caleb and Joshua were permitted to
enter thc promised land. Caleb received
Hellion as his po.-session. the very place
he searched as a spy, where were the best
fruits and the strongest enemies. Joshua
had his name changed from Oshea to
Joshua, which signifies savior, and was
also honored by Wing chosen as Moses'
successor.to lead the people into Canaan.
Thus does Cod reward thc faithful and
Dunish the wicked.
Age Limit and Hair Dye.
For a long time there has beet,
close to complete cessation in the
in a n u fart ure of hair dye, but in the
past year or so a boom has developed
in that branch of industry. The gen?
eral establishment of an age limit
in the employment of men in com?
mercial and mechanical pursuits is
paid to be responsible lor this un
hzpected revival. An official of the
American Federation of Labor says
he knows for a fact of many men who
Ure using dyes to hide their gray
hairs and hosts of others who shave
constantly to look young enough to
be able to hold their positions. Sta?
tistics prove that it is every day be?
coming more difficult for a man past
the prime of life to secure employ?
ment. The skilled mechanic engi?
neer or employe who wants a job in
any service must have youth as well
as ability. If he doesn't possess ii be
must counterfeit, it. Presumably the
elderly man with a bald head must
wear a wig ir. order to cover his
years.
COMMERCIAL REVIEW.
General Trade Conditions.
Bradstreet's says: Midsummer quiet
has gone from distributive trade, and/
stimulated by really brilliant crop pros?
pects and good prices for farm pro?
ducts, fall business bas begun to ex?
pand. Buyers are arriving in large
numbers at all markets, and this week
promises to see demand further in?
creased. Manufacturing industry, which
has been more than usually active this
summer, continues well employed.
Failures arc lew and liabilities small;
prices arc steady. July railway earn?
ings returns show 7 per cent, gain over
last year. Bank clearings continue to
show gains over last year.
Advices from the boot and shoe trade
arc irregular. Business at thc West is
active and al Philadelphia the jobbing
trade is brisk and manufacturers are
busy on orders. At Boston shipments,
though larger than last Week, are still
far below those of last year, the de?
crease being fully 12 per cent. Leathei
and hides are very active, however, aad
skins of all kinds arc taken as fast as
received.
Thc weight of imported iron 13 press?
ing on domestic sentiment, though no
perceptible effect is yet seen on prices
for pig iron, which is still in active re?
quest for next year's delivery.
Steel rails, plates, bars and sheets are
active at the West, but the edge of the
demand for plates and sheets appears to
have been taken off at Pittsburg. West?
ern rail mills arc all sold up for the first
half of 1903. Structural material is
active at Chicago and at Pittsburg,
where sales have been very large this
week. Shipbuilding interests have taken
40,000 tons of plates at Pittsburg.
Hardware, as predicted, has had no dull
season this year and business is as
active as ever.
Business failures for thc week ending
August 7 number 169, as against 168
last week and 185 in this week last year.
Wheat, including flour, exports for
thc week ending August 7 aggregate
4.244.363 bushels, against 3.888,534 last
week and 8,831,199 in this week last
year. Wheat exports since July 1 ag?
gregate 22,398,203 bushels, against 35,
032,237 last season. Corn exports ag?
gregate 50,611 bushels, against 28.405
last week and 990.714 last year. For the
fiscal year corn exports are 558,421
bushels, against 8.718,361 last season.
