Because of the government re
strictions, the size and printing of
the books have been cut down
and quite often the books are not
attractive. During the past two
years many books have none out

Those of you who in years past
enjoyed the popular fiction of
authors such as Porter, Queen,
liinehart or Millar and many oth
ers will find such books as
"Freckles Comes Home" and "The

A;iril 22 is Exodus (especially
chapters 18-20); Numbers; Acts
7:17-44, the Memory Verse being
John 1 1.15, "If ye love Me, ye w ill
keep My commandments.")
AGAIN, AS last week, our les
ion Is so long that it is Impossi
ble to more than briefly sketch
the most important events trans
piring it. It covers the whole of
Exodus and Numbers, and a por
tion of Acts 7.
Genesis ends with the death of
Joseph in Egypt. His people then
lived in that country, among th?
Egyptians, but generations after
Joseph's death, when the rulers
naa torgotten the man who had
saved their country from famine,
the people began to complain of
these Hebrews the first anti
Semitic movement recorded in his
toryfalling around 1 1450 and
1440 B. C.
The king said, "The people of
the children of Israel are more
and mightier than we." and so he
set taskmasters over them and
made them build fabulous cities
for Egyptians. Their lives were
made so hard that the children of
Israel cried unto their Lord to
succor them. The ruler even or
dered all Jewish boy babies to be
killed at birth, but the girls were
ullowed to live. - -
Baby Moses Is Saved
Moses was one of these boy
baliies apparently doomed to die.
but his mother put him in a reed
basket and set it at the edge of
the river, hoping that someone
would see him and save the baby.
His sister was set to watch to see
what would happen. You all know
the story, how Pharaoh's daugh
ter found him and adopted him,
and that when he grew to man
hood and recognized his people's
sufferings, after the Egyptians
had been subjected ' to many
plagues because of their ruler's
obstinacy, he was able, with the
Lord's help, to lead his people out
of Egypt toward the promised
Of their 40 years of wanderings
we have not room to tell here.
The part of our story that is
emphasized in this lesson com
mences when Uie Israelites, under
Joshua, and with Moses' help, had
beaten the people of Amalek.
Jethro, a Gentile, and Moses' fa-ther-in-law,
having heard what
Moses had done for the Jews,
came to him in the wilderness with
Moses" wife and two sons, whom
Moses had sent back home.
Jethro praised Moses for all he
had done, but saw that he was
burdened with all manner of de
tails. The Israelites cane? to him
with every little trouble, and he
was being worn out. So Jethro ad
vised, him to choose good men to
listen to the smaller complaints
and to judge them, leaving only
the big ones for Moses to settle.
Camp Made Before Sinai
In the third month after the
children of Israel had gone from
Egypt, they camped before Mt.
Sinai, and Moses went up into the
mount to talk to God. The Lord
reminded him that He had
brought them out of Egypt, "how
I bare you on eagles' wings, and
brought you unto Myself."
"Now therefore, if ye will obey
My voice indeed, and keep My
covenant.then ye shall be pecu
liar treasure unto Me above all
people for all the earth is Mine."
Moses called the elders togeth
er and told them what the Lord
said, and the people answered to
gether, "All that the Lord hath
spoken we will do.", Moses was
then told to prepare the people
to gather at the foot of the
mount, from which place the
Lord would speak to them. Three
days they were to sanctify them
selves and on no account were
they to go beyond the foot of the
mount, lest they die.
The people sanctified them
selves and gathered at the foot
of the mount, and Moses went up
to the appointed place and the
Lord spoke to him. "And mount
Sinai was altogether on a smoke,
because the Lord descended upon
it in fire: and the smoke there
of ascended as the smoke of a
furnace, and the whole mount
quaked greatly." Then the Lord,
gave Moses the ten great com
mandments which were to be the
foundation of this great nation,
and Mosos gave them to the peo
ple. The first commandments set
forth man's relationship to God,
the last, man's relationship to
other men. After giving these
fundamental laws, God instructed
them how to build a temple to
Him. It was to be of earth, but If
stone was used It was to be of un
hewn stone, "for if thou lift uo
thy tool upon it, thou hast pol
In this temple thoy were to
bring their offerings, and "I will
come unto thee, ami I will bless
thee." said the Lord.
