SOAY SCHOOL LESSON
International Sunday School Lesson
for July 17, 1938
GOLDEN TEXT. ?Who know
eth whether thou are not come
to the kingdom for such a time
as this?" Esther 4:14.
(Lesson Text: Judge 4:1-5; SI)
Tbe period , of Israelitish history
covered by the Book of Judges ex
tended over about two and one half
centuries, lasting from the death of
Joshua to the advent of Eli. Hus
neriod was chaotic, no centralized
government existed, no great na
tional leaders reigned over the coun
try and the people wandered away
There were various emergencies
when the Israelites were threatened
by their enemies, at which time a
temporary figure would emerge to
stand in heroic proportions, under
whose influence the danger would be
overcome. These leaders were called
judges. There were twelve leaders of
this type airing them being Ethamel,
Thud, Gideon, Samson, and a women,
Deborah was a prophetess, living
not far from Jerusalem, who had
gained a wide reputation for her
judgment and vision. The particular
oppressor of the Israelities at this
time was Jabin, King of the Canaan
ites in the North, and his military
commander was Sisera. Deborah
realized fully the suffering end trials
which sorrowed some of her people
and became the instrumentality by
which relief came to them.
This courageous woman sent for
Barak, who lived at Kedesh, evidently
a leader of some consequence, and re
peated to him the inspired message
that he should lead the Israelites
against the army of Jabin. Barak
doubted and hesitated but became
convinced when Deborah agreed to
accompany him at the head of the
attacking forces. So, the Israelites
gathered at Kedesh and prepared for
The battle which followed was pre
cipitated by the counsel of the inspir
ed Deborah. Although Sisera had
nine hundred war chariots under his
command and the Israelites none,
Deborah's faith in the purpose of God
was sufficient to overcome the fears
which otherwise would have prevent
ed an attack. As the battle developed
a storm created confusion in the
ranks of Sisera's army end it was en
Sisera, the leader of Jabin's sol
diers, fled from the battlefield and
took refuge in the tent of Heber, the
Kennite, who was friendly to Jabin.
However, Jael, Heber's wife, killed the
trusting leader by treachery. The

fact that Deborah hailed this death
with triumph and glee illustrates the
barbarity of the age, many centuries
! before the religion of Christ began
to make even warfare more humane
Yet, it is well to bear in mind, mod
ern wars also have their own atroci
ties. Celebrating the victory, we have
the Song of Deborah. This is more
patriotic than moral and more war
like than religious, but it is well to
bear in mind that to the ancient Is
raelites, Sisera waa the embodiment
of evil. What Deborah says of
Sisera. as J. D. Jones comments, "is
true of every evil man, of every evil
power of all wickedness and wrong
the stars in their course are fighting
against them: the trend and constitu
tion of things are working steadily
and irresittibly for their defeat and
overthrow. The universe is so made
that it is against all wrong and on
the side of right.1
The modern reader of this episode
may wonder at the storm which aided
the Israelites, but history is not
without similar incidents. When the
huge Spanish Armada sailed to con
quer England, a storm contributed
more to its defeat than the English
ships as the English themselves
said: "God blew upon them and they
were scattered." When an early win
ter insured the defeat of Napoleon's
invasion of Russia, the great French
man said, "God Almighty has been
too much for me." The .story of
Joan of Arc, the little French peas
ant girl who left her sheep and flax
to don the soldier's armor, and who
rescued her France from the invad
ers, is another example of what a
woman inspired by faith in God can
Other women have likewise done
their part to improve the world al
ways inspired by a great faith.
Florence Nigthingale, Jane Adams,
Evangeline Booth and many others
might be mentioned. Frances Wil
lard, the only woman whose statue is
in the Statuary Hall, led the move
ment for women's suffrage and pro
hibition. The modern woman should
take a patriotic interest in her gov
ernment none should shirk this re
sponsibility. As Minnie Pallister says: "Not in
terested in politics? Do they realize
what they are saying ? Do they care
whether there is war or peace ? Do
they care whether people are ignor
ant and brutish or educated and re
fined? Do they care whether babies
are fed or not? Do they care wheth
er food is pure or poisoned? Do
they care whether their children die
of the small pox and diphtheria, or
live healthy, wholesome lives? Do
the y care whether there are slums or
homes rubbish heaps or gardens
prisons or universities ? If they care
at all for any of these things then
they must be interested in politics."
