LESSON FOR OCT. 26
JOSHUA AND CALEB.
Josh, xiv, D-15.
Secretary of American Soilety of RO
CONTHXT. After the downfall of Jer
icho, the Israelites met a tetlons lover.io.
Tin co thousand men scut against Al, n
small city to the nuithwcst, weio inpulsed
and put to lllght. Joshua, In great dis
lioss, Inqulreil id tho Lord the cause of
tho defeat, and learned that (hole was
sin in the camp iDotit. xxvlll, :.'"). Seauli
was liiMiltnieil for the offender, and Aehan
wan finiad and punished t.loMi. vll. 'Si). A
second and larger expedition ugnhr-d Al
Wu.s sueeesstul. and much si-oll was
taken end dlstillaitod iimonc the people.
AdvaiKhig to Kbal, Joshua creeled an al
tar and wiole the law on stones, accord
ing to the dhoUlons of Moses (Dent,
.xxvlll and xNliij. JIovlmI by fear the Glb
eonltes eiatlily seeiuod a Ueaty of p."i"e,
liat on exiiosine they vevo condenind to
perpetual bondage (Josh. ix. 27). Jleai
Ing of ihls alliance, live kings made a
combined attack on (ilheou, but Josliu.i
came u Glbeon's belli, and gained a
splendid ilctoiy (Josh. x. II). A vigor
ous carnpalgn lollowed, extended through
suveial years, iu which thirty-one kings
weie coiniiicred (Jolui. Nil, 1), and the
militaiy power of the country was biukcn.
DIVISION. Tims far the tilbes, al
thoitgh iccognlzcd ns distinct, had been
held together hi ono body. Jt was tho
purpose ot Clod, however, to sepal. ito
them, and assign each Ulbc to a dellnlto
terrltoiy (Aits wii, "i0. To that end
Closes lrul given insti actions (Numb.
x.iv, 17--I0. The time had now como
when ii dhNlon might be made. Thu
fighting of the two and a half tribes that
leselved iuhci it.iuce on the east ot Jor
dan (Nimib. .x.lv, l.j) had lett their 1am
llles and their sahstance, and bad accom
panied their bietbien to the coimuost of
the western portion. After seven yeais
of war, the end being attained, they ougnt
to bo allowed to leturn. Hesldes, Joshua
was old and well striken In oars searcdy
able to enduio the lurlher tatlgues of
military life. Nor was It longer noees
saiy to Impose such burdens upon him.
Tho p.uls of the country unsubdued
(Josh, sill) might bo taken by tho tiibes
sepaiatcly. JJut the task of llxlns iho
boundailes might be ilono by him, as tho
lasL wink of las usctul life. Having tiav
eled over it as a spy (Numb, xlli) and
marched over it as a soldier, be was emi
nently iiaalllled. So, Isiael returned to
tillgal, and tho paitition piocecded (Josh.
OltDnn. The sous or Jniob and the
tilbes tli.it descended fiom tlieni, aio
mentioned iu several different oidei.s
tirsl, aecoidlng to their blub (Geo. xix
nail xx); second, as leeiplenls ol their

sllll another order In their settlement hi
Canaan. Jn every instance alter the lirst
Judab is made most conspicuous, .laiob
plainly iksslgned Ills fointb sen h mission
supeilor to that of his bretlueu (Ceil,
xllx, S-121, declaiuig that the sciptor
should not depart from Jiulah until Shl
loh came. This (illusion was umlei stood
lu Jewish history as leferilug In .Messiah.
Jiala'h was mado tho central tilbe. lleneo
tho tumor conferred upon it in camp, iu
inaich, iu war, Judah's slainlaid being
always In tho fi out. So now in the divis
ion of the land, Jiulah lecelvcs tho llrst
portion on tho west of tho Jordan. This
indicates the divine purpose to plant Ibis
tilbo lu tho very beau of tho nation to
bo nurtured with special lefeienco to tho
child of pinnilso (.Mlcali v, 2).
TtUQCKST. Whcu""llio tilbo ot Judab
appeared before Joshua, thu oldest man
lu the tilbo advanced to mako a special
personal leipiest. The beads of other
tamllles not only allowed him precedence,
but united iu urging bis plea, an evi
dence of their esteem. It was Caleb who
had i curbed the advanced ii-ro of ,"S
yeais, tie euino to ask that bo should re
celvo tlio Inheritance t, u,0 ami ijeforo
all otheis, a strango ivipicst Indeed. Tho
poillon he desired was not some heautl
lul and fertile valley ueai by, from
which in the leeeut wins, Hie enemies
bad been expelled, a place when an old
man might ibid lepnse. Hut he selected
lather a miauitaluiais legion lu tho smith,
Inhabited by tho Amaklns. who hud not
yet been ioikiucimi, a race of giants, who,
neaily half a century boinre (Numb, xlll,
ilUl, had caused tho lepie.sontatlvcs of ten
tilbes tn iiiako with tear. In asking for
that laud as bis own possibly tliu volenm
Caleb desheil what no other would lmvo
niceplcd, but whift, If obtained, would
piovo u guat blessing.
FAITIII'T'L. What pioinpied thin ro
duest of an old man? Caleb gave his
iiMKons. Tho first of theso was tho plea
of faithfulness hi God, fo willed niton
t Inn to tho fact that when tho spies who
went nut ifom Kadesh Il.une.i leturmd
to Alose.s with evil tidings, ho wholly fol
lowed tho I.oul, lie was not Influenced
by their fears. Ho illd not Join hi their
winds of diseoiuagcment. lo Btnod up
III tho presence of Israel (Numb, xlll, BO)
and declared that, with tho help ot the
land, they wero ublo to go up and pos
sess the laud. That was u precious
memory to mi old man. Looking back
w.itd over the Intervening youis, m
calling the disasters consequent upon
Iho unbelief of men who weio dead and
gone, rellecllng upon dm delay hi tho ex
edition of tho Loul's plan, and consider
ing that be stood lu tho midst of u new
generation to witness the tilumph of the
later yeats and realize tho hopes long
deferred, It was not smpilslng that Ca
leb should iibk boom inward and iccog
nltlou of his f.dth. And that not for
hlmselfmlone, but lor the causu of God.
VIlOMlSi:. Caleb Bticugthened bis to
rpiest by tho consideration that whut
ho desired bad been piomised. Ood bad
sold to Moses and Moses repeated to J.s
lael (bat tho country of tlio AmaUens
Should beloiiK to Caleb (l)out. , yi,). 'I'll It

of letteis patent, doiived fiom the highest
possible source, canceling all other claims,
I fence ho cnino not now so much to ob
tain title tu seeuie a lecogultlou and
publication of title, that tho Divine deed
might be entered for leeofd iu tho his
toric archives of (tod's people. Tn this
theio was astly more than the protection
of peisonal lights to pioporly. If God
had set apart a certain place ot residence
for himself and postonty it was lor a
pill pose. And Caleb was determined to
gn to that appointed place that he might
moot tlio Divine puipo.-se iu him. Jlo was
not willing to thwart any p.nt of that
wondrous plan wheioby Israel should ac
complish its mission. What Hebron af
terward beeamo exhibits tho wisdom of
Caleb's choice and resolve (l.uke I, "..
rnx'nuusT c.ilel, urired his reouest
by still another consideration, which must
havo lemoved all objections, if any exist
ed, lie declined that, notwithstanding
his extreme age, bo was as stioag as In
the day when Moses sent him out as a
spy, as well able as then to go to war,
Jfe deel.ned alo that If the land should
bo with him, placing his confidence where
he had always placed It (Numb, xiv, M,
lie would bo able to dilvo out tho Am.i
kims and possess their land. In theso
statements theio was undoubted lefeienco
to tho public welfare and the glory of
God. It was highly Important that tho
powerful enemy, dwcllng lu tha mountain
luslncsses, should bo subdued, as, other
wise, they might be a perpetual men
ace to tho people. They may havo ro
membeied the reports of their fatbeis,
and they may havo been well pleased
with the offer now mado by tho stout
hearted Caleb, If his leanest Is granted
ho will stnnd on the south, n wall of du
fuisu against tho danger which had been
analelpated his courage and faith aio
equal to tho necessities of the hour.
AAVAIID. Caleb's reijuest was mado
to one who, innro than any other, was
prepared to nppreclato Its merits, Joshua
wan ono of tho spies (Numb, xlll, h). Ho
also went out In company with Caleb on
that tblity days' visit to tho laud, and he,
too, saw tho giants, Jfo stood with Ca
leb on tho leturn, nnd united bis volco
with that of his associate (Numb, xiv,
s-10) lu endeavoring to Insplro conlldonco.
The lemembinaecs ot those days c.imu
vividly to bis mind, and tho present oc
casion was ono of wire Interest, It af
foided Joshua an opportunity to recognl.o
the faith of his old and tried filcnd, In
set his name In tho llghtful place iu Iho
national history, to show that tho utter
ances of tho unbelieving uro not to bo
ti listed, and that tho (.ouUdence of tho
good Is not misplaced. And above all,
It enabled him to leave upon all after
generations an Impicsslou that should
strengthen their trust in Clod, So Joshua
guvo unto Caleb tho city of Klnjnth Alba
(Josh, xiv, iro, afterward called llelnou.
CONCLUSION, Two scenes tiro lu
stilklng contrast (Numb, xiv, U-lii and
Josh xiv, IS), lu tho Hist, two good men
whoso hearts aro steadfast with Clod,
plead with their countrymen, oven eiulan
gei lug their ' lives, vainly seeking to
iiwaken faith In Ood aud lead thoni for
ward Into tho land of their hopes. In tlio
otbor scojiQ tlio saino men aro honored In
old ago by tlio succeeding geneiutlon lu
tho land which before they sought to
gain. Bpaicd by tho mercy of Ood, pass
Ins through many trials, they have
leached tho goal. Ono of them, Invoking
Ood's blessing, bestows tho long deferred
lewnid ot tho other's lldallty. Ilundieds
of thousands of men of war and millions
of people, gatheicd about, aio witnesses
of tlio undying loyalty of two hearts to
tacit other and to (loil. Verily tho light
eons fall not. After two years ot' pa
tient waiting many an aged saint stands
up to iccelvo tho blessing which bis long
llfo has earned, a blessing not for him
solf ulon, but for his childivu and his
children's chllihcu, unto many genera
tions (Pent, vll, 9).
