Text of the Lesson, Ex. ii, 1-15 Mem
ory Verses. 9, 10 Golden Text, Acts
vii, 22 Commentary Prepared by
Rev. D. M. Stearns.
(Copyright. lt"'T, by Ainrrican 1'ross Association.
The Lord chooses nica before they
re born to do His will ami ofttimea
talis theiu by name hmg before their
birth, as in the case of Josiali and Cy
rus, who were uamed hundreds of
3' oars before birth and some of the
things they would do specified (I Kings
siil, '2; xxiii. lti; Isa. xliv, 28; slv, 1).
Every simple minded believer rejoices
to believe that he was chosen in Christ
before the foundation of the world
(Eph. i, 4t, but he also believes that he
was chosen to be holy and without
Maine before Him in love.
It is a wondroiisly comforting truth
that (5od has a time for every event,
end happy are all who contentedly
Jeave their time in His hands (Acts
xvii. nr.; l's. xxxi. 15i. In today's les
son we are Introduced to Amrnm and
Jii belied of the tribe of Levi, the par
ents of Aaron and Miriam and Moses
(Kx. vi. L': Num. xxvi, r!i, for the time
was drawing near to deliver Israel, ac
cording to the Lord's promise to Abra
ham (Hen. xv. Hi. and He would have
His man ready for the event fill time.
Faith is not a feeling or emotion or
thought or hope or desire, but a rest
ing on the sure word of fjod; therefore
we conclude front Heb. xi. 2.".. that God
had been talking with these parents
about this child, for, apart from a
communication from Ood. there is no
ground for faith. "Faith comeih by
hearing the word of Clod" (Kom. x, 17).
So this child was hidden three months
by his mother, in obedience to Hint
wlio so carefully hid Elijah that Ahab
Olid all l:!s searchers could tint find
him. Then at an appointed time for
the babe to be adopted by I'haraoh's
daughter the mother is doubtless in
structed to prepare the ark of bul
rushes and place it in the flags by the
river's brink, not knowing the out
come, but having faith in Ood that lie
would work out His plan in His own
way. A study of the three arks of
Scripture. Noah's, Jochebed's and Mo
Fes', in connection with the fact that
each was prepared to preserve what
was put in it and each made by divine
direction. Is most helpful.
Soon the daughter of Tharaoh and
her n.aidens approach the river to
bathe. The little ark is seen, brought
to her. opened. The Italic weeps; her
heart Is touched; she Is sorry for the
beautiful babe and its unknown moth
er. Miriam is at hand. "Shall I go
and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew
women that she may nurse the child
for thee?" "Go." And the maid went
and called the child's mother (verses
Why do we not trust Him fully? Be
cause we do not know Him. l'erhaps
Miriam did not hurry too fast away
from the presence of the king's daugh
ter, but a little later well, did you
ever see a young girl run when she
bad a good reason for running? And
what diil she find her mother doing?
Fosslbly in prayer to the God of Is
rael or possibly expecting and looking
for the return of Miriam. The child
Is out of breath, but can say "Come"
as she takes her mother's hand and
hurries her along, telling her what bad
happened as they hasten to the river.
Jochebed is face to face with I'liara
oh'9 daughter, but I think she scarcely
has eyes for royalty, only for her baite.
But perhaps she fears to show ton
much interest just then. But listen:
"Take this child away and nurse It fcr
me, and I will give thee thy wages"
(verse 0). Now the song wells up in
her heart and cannot lv; long restrain
ed, perhaps till she reaches home or Is
at least far enough away from the
king's daughter anil her maids not to
be overheard; then it Uiay be that both
Miriam find tier mother started up.
'"Sing ye to the Lord, for He bath tri
umphed gloriously" (Ex. xv, 21), as
Miriam did long years afterward.
Did any mother who reads these
notes ever hear the Lord suy to her
these words of Pharaoh's daughter to
Jochehed? If not, it may have been
because of ears that were not anointed,
l,r if eating and drinking can be done
to the glory of God ii ( or. x, 31 1, how
much more the training of children for
Him! As to wages for love's service,
we will find it even so (Uev. xxii, 12t.
now truly wonderful is our God and
all Ills plan for His own!
Perhaps two or three years with his

hard to give lti::t up. and there were no

So Pharaoh's daughter took the little

columns that the Bell has retarded
the development of local exchanges

reasonable and stringent contracts,
and tne circulation of this fact has
caused t!em to surrender the field
temporarily. But this adversary of
local telephone companies is not
asleep. It seems that head quarters
