I. "The Books of Samuel."—Division.
Originally, the two Hooks of Samuel were
undivided, as were the two Books of
Kings. They are called "the Hooka of
Samuel" because of his prominence in
the history, though a latt Jewish tradi-
tion says that the prophet himself wrote
those portions that fall within his life-
If. "Samuel, the Last Great Judge.*'—
His Task. Under the judges the people
had declined in virtue and power. The
rule of the unseen God seemed too spirit-
ual for the nation's apprehension. Sam-
uel was raised up, to be the leader of the
Hebrews in their transition to a form of
government like that of the nations
Early History. Samuel w«s born, prob-
ably, H. C. 1149, and died at the age of
ninety, about four years before Saul.
HI. "Why the People Wanted a King:
False Pretexts."—Vs. 1-5. At the time
considered In our lesson, the nation was
in a sad plight. About twenty years be-
fore, Samuel had broken the yoke of
Philistine oppression by a great, God-
given victory at Mizpeh, and gave place
and order to the land through all the
years of his judgeship; but ths infirmi-
ties of age had compelled him to hand
over to his sons the active management
of affairs, and they had proved entirely
1. "When Samuel was old." He was
about sixty years old. "He made his
eons judges." "They were simply to sup-
port their father In the administration of
"They were judges in Beer-sheba," hav-
ing authority in the south, while Samuel
probably still ruled in the north.
3. "And his sons walked not in his
ways, but turned aside after lucre,"
"filthy lucre," money wrongfully ob-
tained. "And took bribes." Samuel, liv-
ing at a distance, may not have known
of his sons' misconduct, and he was not
lax with them, but deposed there from
office; so that he was not punished as
4. "Then all the elders of Israel came
to Samuel, unto Ramah." Samuel's home.
The people now proceed to urge three
reasons why they should have a king.
First Reason. 5. "Behold, thou art
Second Reason. "And thy sons walk
not in thy ways. Now make us a king."
That is, appoint one. Doubtless the eld-
ers had In mind Moses' prophecy of the
klngQoin in Deut. 17: 14-20, and desired
its fulfillment. "To judge us." That is,
not merely to settle disputes, but to rule
Third Reason. "Like all the nations."
Not such a king as those of other na-
tions, but as the other nations had kings,
so they desired one.
IV. "Why the People Wanted a King:
the True Reason."—Vs. 6-9. God now
shows the sorrowing prophet that the
pretexts for the people's request are
false, their action being prompted by
restlessness under the divine rule, and a
desire to plunge into worldlineas and
«. "The thing displeased Samuel, when
they said, 'Give us a king to judge us.' "
Why was the request an evil one, since
it had been prophesied that the nation
should become a kingdom (Gen. 17:6; 35:
11; Deut. 17:14-20)? Because the people
should have waited for God's time, or
merely asked Samuel If that time had
not come. It was evil also because it
was prompted by wrong motives, the de-
sire for imitation, and, perhaps, the wish
for easier requirements than the stern
morality which the judges had required
as the condition of their success. "And
Samuel prayed unto the Lord."
7. "And the Lord said unto Samuel."
God's reply is very tender toward his
aged servant, and very sad in its reluc-
tant abandonment of God's high hope for
his people. "Hearken unto th6 voice of
the people in all that they say unto thee,
for they have not rejected thee, but they
have rejected me."
8. "Now therefore hearken unto their
voice; howbelt yet protest solemnly unto
them." God would give them one more
chance to choose the best. "And shew
them the manner of the king." "The
method of the king,—that is, his custom-
ary behavior."—H. P. Smith.
V. "The Request Granted and the Re-
sults Prophesied."—V. 10, and to the end
of the chapter. God did not intend to
compel the israelies to accept his rule,
any more than ha compels us. But his
love for them was so great that ha would
not allow them to plunge into worldllness
and idolatry without a warning.
10. "And Samuel told all the words of
the I.#ord unto the people." That is, to
the elders, the representatives of the peo-
ple, who would pass the message on to
the nation. Samuel had only to look at
neighboring nations to learn the prob-
able fortunes of the Hebrews under s
king. In fine, Samuel prophesied that
the nation would be reduced to practical
slavery by their greatly desired kingrs.—
a prediction amply verified by later his-
tory. They would pray to be delivered
from their tyrants in that day, and thay
would be unable to escape from their
The Warning Rejected. With these sol-
emn prophecies ringing in their ears, the
elders refused to turn from their mad
purpose. They Insisted on a king; they
must be like other nations. And so the
Lord bade Samuel promise them the ful-
fillment of their desire, and with this
promise the aged prophet dismissed the
assembly, sending the elders home to
their respective towns, knowing that
God's permission was a punishment.—
The lessons for Us. First Lesson. We,
ftke the Israelites, often pray foolish
prayers. Our prayers are foolish: (1)
Whenever they do put God's will first.
<2) Whenever they sre more for ourselves
than others. (8) Whenever they look to
the present and forget the future. (4)
Whenever they are not based on God s
promises, but on our own untaught d«- .
sires. It is one of the greatest arts of
life to learn to ask the right things from
God, in the right way.

In summer their nether bifurcated
garments are of dark blue linen or
brown, as each wearer prefers. They
have adopted long breeches strapped
close to the leg below the knees and
about the ankles to permit unimpeded
stepping in and out among close-set
plants. A blue smocked frock loosely
