R«t. T. 0. BOYKIN, State S. 8. Evangelist, Ed
We began last week the talk that Sam
uel made to the people after their great
victory; we will now finish telling what
He told the people to stand and see
what God would do before their eyes.
It was the time of year when the wheat
was ripe, when they had no rain. Sam
uel said he would call on God to send a
great storm of thunder and rain to show
them how thev had displeased Him. So
Samuel prayed to God, and the thunder
and rain came. The people were much
afraid and begged Samuel to pray for
them that they might live. Then Sam
uel spoke to them kindly and said, “fear
not, you have done wrong, but do not
quit following the Lord, serve Him with
all your heart. He will not forsake you,
for you are his own people. I will keep
on praying for you, and will teach you
to do good and right. Think of the great
things God has done for you, and serve
Him faithfully with your heart. But if
you still do wickedly, you shall be des
stroyed and your king with you.’’
When Saul had been king two years
he selected three thousand men to be his
special soldiers. He himself was captain
over two thousand, and his son Jonathan
was captain over one thousand.
In the mean time some Philistines had
gone into the Land of Israel. Jonathan
smote them—that is, fought them. When
the Philistines heard it, they came up
with a great army, thousands of chariots
and horses, and so many people that
they could not be counted. The. Israel
ites were greatly frightened and hid them
selves in caves, thickets, rocks and pits,
and some went over the river Jordan.
Saul was still in Gilgal, and.the people
who were with him trembled. Saul waited
there some days, because Samuel had
promised to meet him there to offer
burnt offerings and peace ofierlngs ? and
tell Saul what to do. Our young friends
must ask their parents to tell them about

ANOTHER SCRIPTURE PROBLEM.
Set down first, the number of men
who went to seek Elijah when he was
carried up into Heaven. Multiply this
by the days during which Job’s friends
sat by him without speaking, when they
came to comfort him. Multiply again
by the days in which Jericho was com
passed by the Israelites. Subtract the
number of men whom Samson killed
with the jaw-bone. Divide by the num
ber of stones which David carried with
him when he went to kill Goliath. Sub
tract the years of the Babylonish captiv
ity. Add the number of furlongs be
tween Bethany and Jerusalem. Add the
age that the Psalmist said is generally
the limit of the life of man in thia world.
Multiply the number of Jacob’s eons by
the years in which Solomon was building
the temple, and subtract from the above
Product. Add the years in which the
sraelites were, for their sins, obliged to
wander in the wilderness. Subtract one
from this, and we have the number of
chapters in the New Testament.

Lesson VII. —August 14,1881.
THE RED SEA.
Ex. XIV. 19*2L—B. C. 1491.
At midnight the first-born in every Egyp
tian house was slain. So greatly terrified
were Pharaoh and the people that they unit
ed in urging the Israelites to depart. So they
went out six hundred thousand men besides
women and children. Before them went
the Lord in a pillar of cloud by day and a
pillar of fire by night Led by the cloud they
encamped by the Red Sea. Having recover
ed from his fright, Pharaoh pursued them
with an army and overtook them by the
Sea. Here the Lord wrought the great de
liverance which is the subject of our present
I. The Israelites protected, w 19, 20.
11. The Israelites delivered, v. 21, 22.
111. The Egyptians dismayed, v. 23 25.
IV. The Egyptians destroyed, v. 26 27.
I- The Israelites protected.
V. 19 "The angel of God." Called Jeho
vah in Ch. 13:21. "The oamp of Israel.” We
suppose the six hundred thousand men are
here specially referred to. The women and
children looked after the flocks. "The pil
lar of the cloud.” A cloud extending high
into the air. By the movement of this cloud
the Israelites were guided in their journeys.
When the cloud descended to the earth the
people rested on their march, and moved on
when it was taken up again. This cloud was
but the symbol of the invisible but present
Jehovah. "Stood behind them.” Probably
widened so as to cover the whole host of Is
V. 20. “The camp of the Egyptians-” The
host ot Egyptians. The expression does not
necessarily imply that they were really en
camped as the same expression is used ot
them when on the march. See v. 24. “To
them.” The Egyptians. “To these.” The
Israelites. "The one came not near the
other.” The Israelites, who were on foot,
had abundance of light, while the Egyp
tians, who were chiefly cavalry, were hinder
in tbeir movements by the darkness. Other
wise the pursuit might have been but a short
11. The Israelites delivered.
V. 21. “His hand,” in which was the rod,
v. 16. Nothing is said here of Aaron. The
influence of Moses with the people had been
somewhat imperilled by tbedaugerin which
they found themselves, and the opening of
the waters at the uplifting of his rod tended
to restore it. “Caused the sea to go.” Drove
the sea. "By a strong east wind.” A natural
means used to effect a miraculous result.
"All that night.” The continuance of the
wind increased its efficiency. A passage was
not only made, but also kept open by this
wind. ‘,Dry land.” The original word refers
merely to land as distinguished from water
and not to dryness. A more correct trans
lation is bare ground. "Were divided.” A
portion of the waters were driven souths
ward, and a portion northward. Evidently
the account here implies a supernatural
agency The waters are divided; they are a
wall on either side; they open at precisely
the right moment for the escape of the Is
raelites ; they remain open long enough for
two and half a millions, and their cattle, to
V. 22 “A wall for them.” It is the defence
which the waters on either side afforded that
is referred to in the word "wall,” rather than
their upright position.
11l “The Egyptians dismayed ”
V. 23. “The Egyptians pursued.” Pres
sed on after them scarcely seeing where they
were going except that they were following
after the Israelites, because of the pillar of
cloud before them. The Israelites had light
and doubtless crossed as rapidly as they
could, hindered as they were by their cattle.
The Egyptians in the darkness of night, and
•with the added darkness of the cloud, must
have gone carefully and slowly over the
strange sea bottom. "Pharaoh’s horses, his
chariots, and his horsemen.” The cavalry
entered the sea first, while the infantry fol
ia wed. See v-28.
V. 24. “In the morning watch.” Before
the captivity the Israelites divided the night
into three watches. The Israelites had bad
therefore two watches or eight hours for ef
ficting their passage. We may reasonably
suppose that the time referred to here is
about day-break or about 5 o'clock. “Look
ed.” Jamidon says, "We suppose the fact
to have been that the side of the pillar of
cloud toward the Egyptians was suddenly
and for a few moments illuminated by a blaze
of light, which coming as it were in a reful
gent flash upon the dense darkness which
had preceded so frightened the horses of the
pursuers that they rushed confusedly to
gether, and became unmanageable."
V. 25. "Took off their chariot-wheels.” This
would easily occur, as the Egyptians in the
panic drove upon each other. “Let us flee
from the face of Israel.” A universal panic.
“The Lord (Jehovah) fighteth for them.”
They recall the wonderful events of the few
preceding weeks, and an irresistible convic
tion breaks upon their minds that Jehovah
fights against them.
IV. "The Egyptians destroyed.”
V- 26. "Stretch out thy hand over the sea.”
The Israelites were no iv safe on the other
side, and their enemies are to be destroyed.
“That the waters may come again.” The
waters which had been in the control of the
unseen hand soon returned to their wonted
V. 27. “Returned to his strength,” that.
is, to its usual place and depth. “Fled against
it. As they turned back to the shore which
they had left, they would meet the waters
rushing upon them. “Overthrew the Egyp
tians.” “A mild message, a manifest sign
from Heaven, only exasperated the pride of
Pharaoh, Ten awful plagues failed to subdue
the obstinacy of bis heait. A final Judgment
of terrific sublimity, terminates his career of
God’s people may always trust him. All
the agencies of nature are in the hands of
Our Father and be can defend us from our
enemies. If we go forward at God’s com
mand, God will give us light to see our way
clearly. One look of Jesus will bring terror
to the impenitent soul in the last great day.
Not one soul that rejects Christ will escape
eternal death. Not one soul that obeys the
gospel will ever be lost.
Adped Note —The place of crossing which
answers best to the description in the Scrip
ture account is at the base of Jebe Attakan,
where the channel is six or seven miles
across. If the Israelites formed a column, a
quarter of a mile wide and a mile long, they
could have crossed in six hours.
If ycu feel despondent and weary of life,
do not give up; it is not trouble that causes
such feelings, but disordered kidneys or liver,
