my feet and hands cold, and my heart

they said It was shattered nerves.
They said they couldn't do me any
good, though every time I would have
one of those nervous spells I wanted
a doctor; It seemed to me that they
could help me If they would, but they
said they couldn't, so one day I de-

vice. He wrote back stating that If I
would follow, his advice he didn't see
why I couldn't be restored to health In

LESSON FOR DECEMBER 9
EZRA AND NEHEMIAH TEACH
LESSON TEXT—Nehemlah 8:1. 4. «, «,
1-12. Read entire chapter.
GOLDEN TEXT—Thy word la a lam>
unto my feet, and a light unto my path^-
The first day of the seventh month
(8:2) was about October 444 B. C.
Seven days feast (vv. 15-18) was the
feast of the Tabernacles beginning
the 15th of the seventh month (Octo-
ber) and continuing for seven or
eight days (Lev. 23). Nehemlah was
the governor; Ezra the scribe, chief
priest; and Artaxerxes, king of Per-
sia, ruler over Palestine. It would be
Interesting to look up the sudden in-
terjection of Ezra's name Into thla
discourse; also the special reasons for
teaching the Bible. There is In this
chapter a record of a full week and
of the daily events of that week.
I. The Preparation. Go back to
verse 70 of the preceding chapter, and
you will find that the temple had Just
been receiving some large gifts. The
task of finishing the wall was also
completed, all of which gives point to
verse one, where it says that the peo-
ple gathered themselves together as
one man. This was an ancient open-
air meeting, one we do well to study.
The people requested Ezra to "bring
the book." It needed no catch-penny
operations to draw the crowd togeth-
er. The writer of Nehemlah calls the
book "the law which the Lord hath
commanded unto Moses." (See v. 1
cf. v. 14.) This, of course, would In-
clude Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuter-
onomy, an Indication as to the Mosaic
authorship of the Pentateuch, which is
in line with the statement that Jesus
Christ made that It was God who had
written It as he had commanded
Moses. It was not a mob; there was
organization and equipment. (See ▼.
8 and 4.) The Bible was also read so
that the people could understand It
(v. 2); certainly something that is In
demand In our present day. Ezra
opened the book In the sight of all the
people, for he stood on an elevation
above them (v. 5) and rend "dis-
II. The Reading of the Word. They
read the book, not from some com-
mentary or quarterly, though these
have value In their place. The read-
ing began with reverence. Reverence
for but not a worship of the book.
The Bible is not a fetish or a charm
against sickness or accident. The
verse "caused the people to under-
stand the law," (v. 7) probably means
that Is was translated Into the ver-
nacular, the language of tin; common
people. While God's word is a plain
book and easy to read, nevertheless
men of spiritual understanding are
needed to "rightly divide" It unto the
people (v. 7). However, the great In-
terpreter of the Bible (riven bv tiie ra-
ther is the Holy Spirit himself (John
10:12-15: I John 2:20-27). IThis
method of beginning the study of the
word and Its continuance as presented
In these verses Is a good suggestion
for modern Sunday school workers.
III. The Hearing cf the Word. (vv.
0-17). As Ezra and Nehemlah and
their associates and Levltes taught
the people, there was a five-fold result-
l'lrst: There was conviction and
mourning. The word of God always
convicts of sin, but the people were
told not to mourn over the past, nor
were they to weep, for all the people
wept (v. 9). When men hear the
words of the law there will be con-
viction of sin. (See Eph. 6:7; Heb.
4:12.) Weeping may sot, however, be
conviction (2 Cor. 7*10). Weeping
weakens, but that was not designed,
rather the exhilaration of Joy. More-
over, they were to seek the refresh-
ment of food and drink. Indeed, the
Joy of the Lord was to be their
strength (v. 10). "And there was very
great gladness" (v. 17). In verse 11
we are told that the Levltes exhorted
the people to hold their peace, that
the day was holy and that they should
be grieved. To this the people re-
sponded (v. 12), and made great mirth,
because they had understood the dec-
laration of the word of the Lord. No-
tice that Joy and gladness came after
obedience, also that Nehemlah, the
governor, had a part in the teachtng.
It Is a great thing for any people when
their civil rulers are genuine, intelli-
gent, and spiritual leaders. The peo-
ple were Instructed to show their grati-
tude as well as their piety by remem-
bering "those for whom nothing had
been prepared" (v. 10). The fourth
result was peace (v. 11)—the peace
of right relation with God (Rom. 5:
1; Phil. 4:7).
Fifth Reeult: Service.
Mourning can very easily be con-
tinued too long, and, therefore, it was
necessary to employ the emotion of
mirth and the exercise of work that
the people might enter Into this peace.
The fifth result, therefore, was serv-
ice (v. 12). Notice that their thanks-
giving portions and their service were
based upon an Intelligent knowledge
of God's word. If there is anything
that present-day social service needs,
It Is the lllumlnntlon \vhich comes
from a knowledge of God's word. Last
of all, worship (vv. 13-18). Worship
is n compound of "worth" and "ship."
Man and Lion Die In Battle.
Lion and man, lying alongside one
another both terribly mauled and both
quite dead, told a silent story of a
titanic struggle "somewhere in Afri-
ca." The deceased was Trooper Nor-
man Sinclair, a native of Prestonkirk.
and while on military duty his body
was found lying beRlde the king of
beasts which he had killed. A remark-
able tribute to his memory has been,
paid through the devotion of nutlve
troops. There has now been placed
on his remote grave an Iron rcoss,
which weighed two hundredweight,
bearing his name, the date of his death
and the words, "Died for King and
Empire." For the last 300 miles the
cross was borne by carriers over* a
practically unknown country.
KIDNEY TROUBLE NOT
Applicant* for Insurance Often
An examining phyaician for one of the
Srominent life insurance companies, in an
iterview of the aubject, made the aa-
toniahing statement that one reason why
ao many applicants for insurance are re-
jected is because kidney trouble is so com-
bm to the American people, and the large
majority of thoae whose applications are
declined do not even suspect that they
have the diaeaae.
Judging from reports from druggists
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there ia one preparation that
has been very aucceasful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer'a Swamp-Root ia
aoon realized. It standa the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
We find that Swamp-Root is strictly
an herbal compound and we would ad-
rise our readera who feel in need of such a
remedy to give it a trial. It ia on sale
at all drug stores in bottles of two sizes,
medium and large.
However, if you wish first to teat this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y., for a
sample bottle. When writing be sure and
mention this paper.—Adv.
