SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH The Low of the Lord ILLUSTRATED SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON By Alfcttl J. When Ezra l.he scribe cnme from Babylon to Jerusalem for the second time, in 445 B. C., he found the Jewish religion corrupted. Voluntarily the people gathered before the Water Gate and asked Ezra to read them God's law.—Nehemiah 8:1. So Ezra brought the great book and read It to the people. He stood on a wooden pulpit they had mode, with 13 priests flanking him. The people stood before him and listened Intently, and the priests helped Ezt-a explain the law.—Nehemiah 8:2-8. The people were so profoundly affected by this first study of their law in many years that they wept, ashamed for their sins. Ezra told them not to weep but to rejoice, for the Word of God would give them strength an djoy.—Nehemiah 8:9-12. In accordance with the law, the people renewed their religion. They celebrated n feast as God had commanded through Moses, hy building booths for themselves of wild branches from the hills.—Nehemiah 8:13-18. GOLDEN TEXT: Psalm 19:8. The Low of the Lord THE ABIDING POWER OF THE WORD OF GOD WHEN OBEYED BY A NATION OR AN INDIVIDUAL Scripture—Nehemiah 8; Psalms 19; 119. By N. SHEER The setting for the first selection from today's lesson is Jerusalem In 444 B.C. Ezra, the scribe, has come on his second expedition to the city from Babylonia. On his first expedition, 14 years earlier, he led nearly 2,000 of the exiles back to their home. Now he has come again, to find the Jewish religion and laws deeply corrupted. Ezra was a great authority on fhe Jewish law, the most famous of the scribes, or legal authorities. He was evidently vastly respected in his day, for the people of Jerusalem assembled voluntarily "as one man" to hear him read and interpret, the Scriptures, which at that time consisted mostly of the law. This reading took two days. Its consequences were very impressive. The people burst into parts the first (verses 1-6) dealing with God's revelation of Himself in nature and the .second (verses 7-11), dealing with God's revelation of. Himself in His Word. The last three verses are in the form of a prayer, for after contemplation of God's law, one is bound to realize and be appalled by his own shortcomings. Psalm 119 is t h e longest psalm in the entire book. It has a special interest in thai it is one of the so-called Alphabetical Psalms. In these psalms, each verse begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. They are Psalms 25, 34, 37, 111, 112 and 145. The 119th, while built on the same general idea, is different from all the others in that the progression goes by section rather than by verse, and within each section, each verse begins with the same letter. GOLDEN TEXT "The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes." —Psalm 19:8. tears, probably through recognition of their own sins and through the joy of seeing once more the Way of God, which they had been apart from for so many years. Futhermore this reading brought about re-establishment of the Jewish religion, to the extent that many today regard him as the second founder of the nation. The description of Ezra's reading is vivid; it established the pattern for the sermons we hear today. Psalm 19 predates the story of Ezra by more than 500 years, for it was written by David. It consists of two definite and separate Such a complex work of poetry could only be worked out by a man who had a .great deal of time to spend on the project. We do not know who the author svas, beyond the fact that he appears to have been a great scholar and respecter of the law, and that he apparently was a Levite, for the phrase he uses, "Thou art my portion, 0 LORD, "WAS USED IN Scriptures about the Levites. The Word of God is described as the word, the law, the commandants, the statutes, the precepts, the judgments and the testimonies, each with a differenl shade of meaning. levs. Medard Lobocki and Peter Jertoldo, assistants.
