that eho was actually my wlfo. Uut I
daro not permit her to oven guess the

weakness of that moment and would
resent tho slightest reference to It,
1 released her hand, venturing upon

Hosea continued to prophesy after
tho first captivity of tho northern
kingdom. His stylo Is abrupt and fig

a part of tho second section of tho
book (4:1-13:8), which Is a descrip

I. "The Perverse Child," vv. 1-7.
Tho "remnant" (ch. 0:1-3) had cried

2:5). Jehovah's ropty (begins 6:4) is
a Bovoro Arraignment of Israel's buck

To understand tills lesson rend tho

tho lesson Jehovah recalls to tho na

1:12; I. John 3:1-2). Matthew's gos

or should bo verso 2 gives n picture
of Israel's wandering. Tho wholo his
tory of tho nntion is ono of going after
falso gods. (1. Sam: 8:7-9 and many
othor references.) In those childhood
days (v. 3) Jehovah taught them how
to walk, and henlcd their hurts, "but
thoy know not" God, as a tender Fa
ther, had watched over, taught, guid
ed nnd healed (Ex. 10:14; Isa. 46:3;
63:9). Even so, In this present ago
God is a God of mercy and long suf
fering (Rom. 2:4), yet tho mass ot
men "know not" what God is doing
for them. In verso 4 tho child has
grown older and as mothers often
tether a child lest it run away, so Je
hovah endeavors to draw Israel to
him with "cords of lovo." His cord
of lovo now is tho mighty power of
Calvary (John 12:32). Jehovah not
only drow but oven sought to entice,
for he "laid meat unto them" Jesue
will deliver us, for ho boro our yoke
(Matt. 11:28-30) nnd is for us the
Bread of Llfo (John 6:35, 58). Lovo
does not mean that tho backslider
shall bo freo from punishment. "Bo
causo thoy refused to return . . .

12:6). Even so God did not permit

Nono can fathom tho depths of tho
cry, "How shall I give theo up, How
shall I deliver thee" (v. 8). Israel
would persist and still Jehovah pleads
that perchanco thoy would hoed hls
cry (Jor. 9:7; Lara. 3:33). Adman
and Zobolm woro trrctrlovably over
thrown with Sodom and Gomorrah
(Dout. 29:33), shall Israel likewise
perish? No! (v. 9) for "I am God, not
man." God does not, like man,
chango his covenants aro not "scraps
of paper," his lovo is everlasting (Nu.
23:19). It Is not God but man who Ib
responsible for his destruction. Tho

Verses 10 and 11 aro prophetic of the
ultimata ropontanco and restoration of
Israol Judgmont shall pass upon tholr
foes (Jool 3:16) and thoso of tho dls
poralon (soo parallel Isa. 11:11-16)

tholr God-given land. Ephralm (v. 12)

off Jehovah (I. Cor. 4:8).
In Judah was tho legal priesthood
and tho legitimate- king, but tho apoH

cauro of the example ot Judah which
ho had set at nought.
III. Promised Deliverance. In a
most striking way Hosea flash es a
note of hopo and lovo through tho
cloud of gloom which hung over tho
nation as it drow closer to its doom,
bocauae tho pjoplo refused to repent
Amos delivered his warning and re
turned to Judah.
Hosea was a part ot tho nation
which emphasizes such verses ot hla
prophecy as tho following: 6:1, 4:6,
11:4, 11:6, 6:4, 6:6, 2:15 and 10:12.

HARD TO DROP
But Many Drop It.
A young Calif, wife talks about cot
fco: "It was hard to drop Mocha and
Java and glvo Postum a trial, but my
nerves woro so shattered that I was a
nervous wreck and of courso that
means all kinds of nils.
"I did not want to ncknowlcdgo cof
fee caused tho troublo for I was very
fond ot It. At that time a friend
camo to live with' us, and 1 noticed
that after ho had been with us n week
he would not drink his coffee any
more. I asked lil.ni the reason. He
replied: 'I havo not had a headache
slnco I left oft drinking coffee some
months ago, till last week, when I be
gan .again horo at your table. I don't
bco how anyono can llko coffee, any
way, after drinking Postum!'
"I said nothing, but at once ordered
a packago of Postum. That was flvo
months ago, and wo have drank no
coffee slnco, except on two occasions
when wo had company, and tho result
each timo was that my husband could
not slcop, but lay awake and tossed
and talked halt tho night. We wero
convinced that coffco caused his Buf
fering, bo ho returned to Postum, con
vinced that coffco was an enemy, in
stead of a friend, and ho la troubled
no moro by insomnia.
"I havo gained 8 pounds in weight,
and my nerves havo ccaaed to quiver.
It seems so easy now to quit coffee
that caused our aches and nils and
take up PoBtum." Namo given by
