LESSON FOR AUGUST 5.
MANASSEH'S SIN AND REPENT
LESSON TEXT-II Chronicles 83:1-20.
GOLDEN TEXT Let the wicked for
sake his way, and the unrighteous man
his thoughts: and let him return unto the
Lord, and he will have mercy upon him;
and to our God, for he will abundantly
pardon. Isaiah 65:7.
The reign of Manasseh was the long
est of any of the kings of Judah. It Is
strange that a wicked king should
have the distinction of the longest
reign. This can be accounted for, per
haps, by the fact that the nation was
in such a state that their idolatrous
corruption needed to go to its fullest
development. It seems to be neces
sary in a world of free, beings, that
their actions must go to a certain
stage of development. It was so with
the inhabitants of Canaan before that
land was possessed by Israel. Israel
was kept in Egypt until the iniquity
of that nation was full. In this case
doubtless the Lord permitted this to
go on until the Idolatrous practices
would become extremely obnoxious.
I. Manasseh'8 Sin (vv. 1-9). Though
he had the example of a good father,
he with passionate endeavor gave him
self up to the Imitation of the heathen
about him. This shows that grace is
not Inherited; a good father may have
a bad. son. It also teaches us that it
is absolutely necessary to bring the
grace of God into vital touch with our
children, for that grace is absolutely
essential to their salvation. Only his
grace can counteract the downward
ptll of sin.
1. He restored the high places which
had been destroyed by his father
(v. 3). It is thus seen that he sought
to undo the good work done by his
2. He erected altars to Baal (v. 3).
The Idols worshiped on these altars
seem to have been Images of licen
tious appearance, provoking the indul
gence of the human passion. There
fore, with this worship was coupled
the grossest licentiousness.
3. He introduced the star worship
of the Chaldeans and Assyrians (v. 3).
He even erected these altars in the
house of the Lord, placing them on a
level with God himself.
4. He set up Moloch in the Vale of
Hlnnon (v. 6). He not only encour
aged this worship on the part of oth
ers, but he even caused his own chil
dren to pass through the fire.
5. He practiced magic, witchcraft,
and dealt with a familiar spirit (v. 6).
So gross were these practices that
they did even worse than the heathen
whom God had destroyed before the
Children of Israel came into the land.
6. He rejected the Lord's testimony
(v. 10). Doubtless the prophets had
again and again admonished htm, but
ho seems to have turned entirely aside
from such remonstrances.
II. Manasseh's Chastisement (vv. 11
13). The Lord In grace used the As
syrians to chastise Manasseh, so as to
bring him to see his evil ways. He
was captured, perhaps while hiding
among the thicket of thorns (v. 11),
bound In chains and carried to Baby
lon. This was most Humiliating. His
hands were managed, his ankles fas
tened together with rings and a bar.
III. Manasseh's Repentance, (vv. 12.
13). Fortunately, the chastisement
had its desired effect. Manasseh was
brought to his senses and turned from
his evil ways. The steps In his re
pentance are as follows :
1. Affliction (v. 12). This was most
severe. Bound with chains and dragged
to Babylon. While this was severe, It
was light in comparison with the sins
which provoked it.
2. Supplication (v. 12). Manasseh
liad the good sense to cry out to God
in this condition. It is the unmistak
able evidence that God's chastisement
is accomplishing Its purpose. We are
instructed in James 5 :13 in time of af-
fliction to pray. !
3. Humility (v. 12). This is a com
mon characteristic of penitent souls.
Those who come under the hand of
God always recognize it in their hum- j
ble walk. I
4. Forgiveness (v. 13). As soon as j
God sees the signs of penitence, he
turns in mercy to the penitent and i
grants absolution for sin. No one
needs to wait long to receive his for
giveness. 5. His kingdom restored (v. 13).
Manasseh not only was forgiven, but
he was actually restored to his king
dom. Those who truly repent. God
will not only forgive, but he will re
store (Psa. 32 :3-5).
6. Apprehension of God (v. 13).
Through this experience Manasseh
came to know God.
IV. Manasseh's Reformation (vv.
14-20). Manasseh was not content
with merely receiving God's forgive
ness and restoration to his kingdom,
but he sought so far as possible to
undo the mischief which he had done.
1. He strengthened JJie fortifications
of Jerusalem, so as to make his peo
ple safe from the attack of a foreign
foe. (v. 14).
2. He removed the idols from the
House of the Lord (v. 15). Through
bitter experience he had come to know
that an idol is nothing, that It could
avail him nothing In time of deepest

Bullets From Machine Guns Gave Odd
Impression to Aviator at Whom
They Were Aimed.
It will be easily understood, writes
Mr. C. G. Grey, in "Tales of the Fly
ing Service," that before a bullet that
has been shot straight upward begins
to fall there must be a point where it
stands dead still, and that for the last
part of Its upward path It travels very
slowly. One officer of my acquaint
ance told me, after some months of
war, that his most curious experience
was when once, and once only, he dis
covered the exact extreme range point.
He was flying along quite peacefully
on a bright sunny morning at an alti
tude of a little over 8,000 feet, without
worrying about anything, when sudden
ly he saw something bright dart past
the side of the machine. lie began to
look about him and saw, a shade be
low him and a trifle to one side, a
whole stream of little bright things glit
tering in the sun.
Then he realized that he had just
struck a level that happened to be the
extreme vertical range of a machine
gun that was making uncommonly
good shooting. Other bullets, from
rifles and other machine guns also
flashed Into view as he flew along, and
when his eyes caught the right focus
he could follow tho slow, topmost part
of their movement for a considerable
distance. "It looked," he said, "just as
