Instead of tho publisher being com

The plun for bringing this about Is
novel. It leaves no loophole whereby
a needy publisher, anxious to get any

LESSON FOR JANUARY 31
THE BIRTH OF SAMSON.
LUSSON TKXT-JtKlKcs 13:8-16, 21-25.
ClOLDHN Ti:XT-Itewnrc. I pray tlieo.
and drlnlt no ulno nor strung drink.
Tho story of Samson bulks largo in
Iho book of Judges and in tho Interest
und imagination of nil men over since
ais day. This being tho only lesson in
t, soven years' course wo suggest, in
outline, Samson's cnttro life.
I. Samson's Parents. Clod chooses
a humblo man and woman, folk of piety
nnd prayer, to bring forth and rent
this great deliverer. Tho angel's most
Improbablo promiso (13:3) is accepted
by Mnnonh and his wlfo (13:6, 7).
They express a deslro to bo nblo to
measuro up to tho responsibility a
suggestion to parents. There Is nlBO a
hint of tho dual responsibility of par
ents In tho words, "teach us," (Sco
Eph. 6:4; Jos. l:G-7.) It was reason
able to bcllcvo that tho one who
brought tho promiso could also tell
thorn how to train nnd nurturo tho
child. God honored tho mother's pray-i
or and sho shnrcB hor experience with
tho father (v. 9). As tho mother of a
Nazarlto Bho must keep herself from
nil things unclean (v. 14; II Cor. 6:'
17), oven ns Mary, tho mother of
Jesus (Luke 1:38). Tho experience of
tho sacrifice, tho worship of Mnnoah
and his wife and tho fact of Sam
son's birth completes tho record of
chapter 13. Mnnonh could not worship
tho angel, but could show him hospi
tality. Verso 18 (II. V.) seems to Indi
cate that this was another promanl
fcstatlon of our Lord Jesus.
II. Samuel's Power.' Every rnco ho
its superman, and. usually it is ono ol
I physical strength. That Samson had
no physical evidence of his supcrlot
ntrongth is evident from tho fact that
Delilah asked to know his secret. Noi
was his strength in his hair, elso there
was no need that tho "Spirit ot
Jehovah" should como upon him. Tho
secret of his power is indicated In
13:2G. Tho word "move" suggests to
play upon a harp, as if Samson's heart
was open to Qod as a harp Is open to
human touch. "Samson's power was
the result of a faith that was open
to tho infinite storchouso ot tho di
vine dynamic." Such spiritual power
Is within tho reach of every man.
Samson ("sunny") was full of laugh
ter; not tho comic, but tho JoyouB. He
did the big things God gavo him to da
and was filled with gladness. But
Samson camo under tho spell ot an
evil woman and all of this truo laugh
tor and glad joyousness left his soul.
III. Samson's Impurity. A woman
can make or mar tbo man with whom
to touch nnythlng unclean, nor drink
intoxicating liquor. This vow was
usually for a short period. Samuel and
John tho Baptlzer aro other Naza
rites recorded In Scripture, and aro
said to havo been such from birth
(3:14; 16:17; Luko 1:15). Samson's
strength burned out when ho lay his
I head In a harlot's lap and the laughter
went out of his soul, it was that
which broko tho contact between him
and God. Samson's birth in a godly
homo, his kuowlego or his relation to
God and tho experience of God's power
did not keep him from an Ignoble
IV. Samson's Imprisonment Wo find
him after his excesses grinding in tho
Philistlno prison, whero ho perhaps '
overheard praises being sung to Dagon
who had overthrown Jehovah's judge.
It Is never safo to play with tempta
tion though conscious ot our own
strength; then It is we aro moBt apt
to fall (I Cor. 10:12). Ono act and
tho gay hero is grinding in a prison
houso. Directly a man goes into im
purity, whether In act or thought, ho
loses tho power that formerly moved
men or worked wonders. Yenr after
year Samson plodded Ills round of en
forced toll, a typo of tho forco and
power of intemperance and other Ira
Finally, "when their hearts woro
merry" (1C:25), ho Is brought out to
mako sport. During ono of his resting
periods ho said to a boy near by, "Let
me feel of tho two pillars," thoso upon
which tho main walls rested and
which wero within a man's reach.
Then it was that ho was ablo to grip
tho mysterious power of tho unseen
(16:30). Was Samson a suicide? No!
Ho accepted death as tho inevitable
consequence of bis act ot duty (See
The growth of his hair was only a
token of that consecration which he
had surrendered when ho failed to
withstand the wiles of Delilah.
The Temperance Teaching of this
lesson is all too plain. It must begin
in tho homo and contlnuo throughout
all of Ufo. As we havo scattered in
formation throughout our land we
havo seen tho work of temperanco ad
vancing mightily. Snmson's exploit
with tho lion Is a temperanco sermon
Jn parablo (14:5, C; Prov. 20:1). The
business of tho temperanco forces Is
to Blay tho lion. Wo aro also to eat
"honey out of tho rock," to gain vic
tories, within and without, and, like
Samson, wo can glvo honey to othors.
