they were plunged In war, distress, disas

LESSON FOR NOV. 16
THE TIME OF THE JUDGES.
Judges, 11: 7-10,
Secretary of American Society of He-
THI'I HOOK. The seventh book In our
Kngllsh lllble, from which the lesson Is
taken, is of uncertain origin. Until re
cently scholars assigned its authorship to
the Prophet Samuel, whu nourished, ne
cording to Archb(.sliop Vhlier's chron
ology, . C. 11U7 to 1037. a period eighty
yeais. it has been held by later critics
that (lie book was written after the Baby
lonian captivity by some unknown scrlbu.
All agree that It covers tho time that the
Judges ruled in isiael, which was pi lotto-
the monarchy under Haul and subsc
ipieiil to the administration of Joshuu, the
uiit'cetsfcor of Jloses. Tho government was
thei) a pure theoeiacy on a tribal plan,
Thu people were settled In Palestine ac
cording to u division iiiudo Immediately
after the comiuest, and wore confronted
with many dllliculties. Their illsperuion
endangered national unity and led them
to eek friendly relations with the oil
ciual Inhabitants of tho laud, who were
idolaters, nnd given to many Immoral
jFPritf t -'s,"wigJajfgJJrJl.TTih'ijJpl3
TttH HUUVICR-tVciFe 7,)-For n. time
after entering Cntmntt, the children of la
lac! were faithful to tho Lord, They kept
the laws, moral, civil and ceremonial,
Which were delivered to Mimes on Mlnnl.
tKx. xk, b) lly these every relation In
life was covered, and nil the Interests In
family and society were fully guarded.
The excellence of Hint code, confessed by
eminent Jurists of all after centuries, Is
shown by the fact that, as lllackstolic de
clares In his Commentaries on the Laws
of I'iihIiiiuI, It has entered largely Into
tho legislation of all civilized nations.
There was thus presented the beautiful
spectacle of more than three millions of
souls living pencably and happily In the
valleys and on the hillsides, loyal to their
King, the Almighty. This delightful con
dition continued through the life time of
Joshua nnd of those fathers who hud wit
nessed the displays of God's power.
T1IH TltANHITIONi-(Verscs S, !, 10.)
Oiie by nun these venerable men passed
away, gathered unto their fathers. Joshua
reached the good ago of 110 years. (Josh,
xxlv, I'll,) Ho h,id been the conllilonllal
filend of Moses from the time the Itcd
sen wits crossed, the lender of Israel lit
the battles of defense and comiuest (Josh,
vlll. 1), and the wise aud honored head
of the liallou after the settlement In the
new possessions, lie was burled In land
that had come to him In partition of the
country fJosh. xs. ,0), In the city of
Tlmnah-iSerah of tho tribe of Kphiahn,
to which he belonged, (N'uinb. .vlll, S.)
Ills long service hud glvrn him a warm
place In thu hearts of his countrymen,
who laid away his remnlns with becom
ing reverence Some of the old men who
had been associated with him lingered
for a time, and then they too disap
peared. A new generation having no per
sonal knowledgu of tho early Utiles came
iilMni the stngc of action.
TIIK KKVOLT.-tVerses 11, 1:', 13.)
The orientalists from the most ancient
times have enjoined reverence for the
fathers. This spirit was ono of the basal
principles in tho laws of tho decalogue.
(Ks. xx. IS.) It was believed that tho
early Institutions of a people ought to bo
perpetuated they wore Indeed held to bo
sacred, as divinely ordained. Conservat
ism tended to stability, and that to se
curity, and In those days men feared
changes ns Involving peril. But the new
Israel forgot the fathers nntt rejected the
lellglous customs nnd ordinances which
were their most precious Inheritance.
Casting off the service of Jehovah, who
brought them out of ligypt, they followed
the gods of tho. land. This may liavo re
sulted from a desire to bo friendly with
the natives among -whom they dwelt, or
from a conviction then common that
there .were local deities who presided over
certain sections of the country: or It may
be that a pure monotheism did not quite
meet the needs of their Intellectual and
TIIK DKFKAT.-CVerses II and 15.)
Men forgot' that in the turning away
from the Lord they forfeit His protecting
care. One of the plainest promises made
to Israel was that God would be In their
midst to deliver them from enemies (Dent,
xxlli, 14), conditioned only upon their loy
alty to Him. History had recorded In
stances of defeat solely because of sin,
as In the case of AI (Josh, vll, 5). and
these ought to have been warnings to all
after generations sufllclent to prevent any
departure from the path of rectitude. But
the new Israel forgot these things also.
'I ho Canauiiites were not their only ene
miesthe Lord blmself fought against
them nnd brought defeat. All this was
according to declaration made long time
ago. (Lev. xxvl, 17.) It was God's meth
od of chastising His people, making them
to feel the need of llim, to realize their
sin and turn from it, a severe but salu
tary measure for reformation,
TIIK Jt'DGKS.-CVerses Hi and 17.)-
AA'hllt distressed in this manner Israel was
not wholly forsaken. God did not cast
off His chosen as He might justly bavo
done. He bad a. great work to' accom
plish through these descendants 'of Abra
bam (Geu. xll, :i), tho fulfillment of a
promise made, centuries before. Involving
thu welfare of the race. Hence Ills heart
was tilled with pity and after .sulllclent
punishment had been meted out at the
hands of their enemies, after there were
some signs of repentance and reform,
God raised up a man who stood for Him
ami who united all the tribes in success
ful resistance. Tlieru were many such
men called Judges the defenders of the
land, tho administrators of justice, who
sought to rehabilitate the old Institutions,
and rekindle tho tires of patriotism and
loyalty to God. These men camo at In
tervals and rendered valuable service for
a time, und then there would be an inter
regnum. Hut so wayward was Israel that
even these divinely commissioned men
were not regarded.
THE DKLlA'KHA.-Crc.-(Verse. ISO
Lord was merciful aud faithful notwith
standing the sins of Israel. He beheld
tho people In their sin and sorrow. Ho
beard their groaning by reason of op
pression. There is no more pitiable condi
tion than that of those who by sinful
deeds are plunged into trouble, who cause
their own misfortune. And the divine
heart was moved with compassion for
Iho suffering Inhabitants of tho land, and
by tho hand of the judgo whom Ho raised
up Ho brought salvation, a temporary
respito from tho vexations of enemies. It
was not because of any desert of man
but because of thn Infinite mercy of the
Almighty (Titus, III, 3) that the tide of
battle was turned nnd Israel gained the
victory In struggling against her foes.
Then peace and rest came to tho land
and rejoicing far aud wldo filled all tho
