SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE FIVE God in Courts of Justice ILLUSTRATED SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON iy *»»* j. to..** Scripture—P»lms 11$ 12; 82) Itoj AttM 8;8. When David's life was In danger, his advisers urged him to flee like a bird to the mountains from his wicked adversaries. David refused, placing his faith in the righteousness of God's judgments.—Psalm 11. Solomon prayed thftt he and his son might exercise righteous judgments over their people, helping them deliver the oppressed, defend the poor, crush the oppressors and make peace enduring.—Psalm 72. God exercises judgment over the human judges of the people, who are often most unrighteous In their judgments. Often they favor the rich and powerful over the poor and uncon- splcuous.—Psalm 82. When certain Israelites resented the authority of God's appointed leader, Moses, He exercised judgment by opening the earth to swallow them.— Psalm 106:16-18; Numbers 16:27-33. GOLDEN TEXT: Psalm 11:7. God in Courts of Justice THE RIGHTEOUS CHARACTER OF GOD IS OUR ASSURANCE THAT SOME DAY RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL PREVAIL IN THE WORLD By N. SPEEH JONES The Collection of psalms in today's lesson reflects the importance of righteousness in religion. The word comes, of course, from our simple word "right." To be righteous, therefore, is to do what is right. In Psalm 11, which is one of David's, we find that the author is in a situation so desperate that friends urge him to flee for his life. He refuses, not only because he has faith in God's upholding of the righteous, but because to flee would not be righteousness on his part, but cowardice. Psalm 72 is one of the only two in the Psalter which, so far as we can toll, were authoried by Sol- The claim to such homage as indicated in verses 8-14 Is not based on force but on justice. Unfortunately, Solomon, instead of delivering the oppressed and poverty-stricken, made their burdens ever heavier, despite his prayers. The rulers to accomplish this are God and His Son. In contrast to Psalm 72, Psalm 82 emphasizes the evils of unjust judgments. Here God is judging not the people themselves, but the unjust human judges of the people. This is the reference of the word "gods" in the first verse; in Exodus 21:6, 22:8, 28 we see the same reference used for the word — Israel's Judges. Verse 8 speaks of God arising and judging man, yet throughout the New GOLDEN TEXT "For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold His face."—Psalm 11:7. omon. The other is the 127th. His opening prayer is for himself and his heir, that their judgments may be righteous according to God. Justice, in the first clause, probably refers to the specific judgments which the king must make; righteousness, in the second, probably here means the inner spirit of accord with God's way, which makes any specific judgment right. In verse six, Solomon aks that he and his son be like "rain upon mown grass," which at first glance seems odd because literally this is not a blessing at all. What the author must mean is rain upon a newly mown field from which the old grass has been cleared. This would cause the grass to sprout again, almost overnight, just as a good leader's influence brings out the latent potential in his followers.

Testament it is usually tne bon of God Who is appointed to do the earthly judging, as Christ Him self said. The fundamental criterion for any judgment is righteousness. In Psalm 106 we return to the old theme of God's everlasting righteousness. The problem here is the one of the necessity ol judgment on the part of the righteousness, of the unrighteous, especially one's own unrighteous; this is the problem faced by every disciplining parent. The task of Amos was roughly the equivalent to that of preachers in this country today, who must point out the sinfulness In an B.C., era of outward under Itaiah proscentury and perity Amost lived in the 8th Jeroboam II, a period of great splendor and prosperity for Israel.
