13. Sow therefore behold the kins whom
re have chosen and whom ye have de--tlred,
and, behold, the Lord hath set a
king over you.
In verse 1 vre hear Samuel saying,
"Behold, I have hearkened unto your
voice in all that ye said unto me and
liave made a king over you." Now he
says that the Lord did it, -for he was
the Lord's representative. If believers
would accept the truth tha,t we are
liere In Christ's stead our HVes would
tell more for Him (II Cor. v, 20; John
xriL IS). Israel now had a king, like
other nations, but they had put a man
In the place of God, for Samuel re
minded them, "The Lord your God was
.your king" (verse 12). When we re
member Rom. vl, 10. "To whom ye yield
.yourselves servants to obey, his serv
ants ye are to whom ye obey," we
-should be able to see If we nre putting
any person or thing In the place of God.
14. 15. If ye will fear the Lord and serve
"Hlnj and obey His voice. But If ye ,
-will not obey the voice of the Lord, but
Although they have sinned and God !
"has given them their desire, yet here la t
.a way of blessing still left to them. Je
hovah must and will be magnified ei
ther In blessings upon an obedient peo
ple or In judgment upon the unbeliev- (
ing. He redeemed Israel from Egypt '
that they might keep His command- j
ments and serve Him and be a peculiar
treasure unto Him above all people, a !
-willing and obedient people enjoying j
His goodness (Ex. six, 4, 5; Isa. L IS,
19). Obedient service was the way of
Messing, disobedience the way of the J
hand of the Lord against them. Moses
alled heaven and earth to witness j
against them that he had set before 1

15-1S. Now therefore stand and see this
great thing which the Lord will do before
Your eves. So Samuel called unto
the Lord, and the Lord sent thunder and i
rain that day. and all the people greauy
ieared the Lord and Samuel.
A. deep conviction and hatred of sin
Is a grand thing for any child of God,
. . , i i.n .
lor oinerwise one may usuii; lamper j
-with sin and crieve the Spirit. It was
a. most unusual thing to have rain dur
ing wheat harvest, and that the people !
might hear God's own voice disapprov
ing of their action and not think of it ,
sls merely Samuel's disapproval he said
he would ask God to speak by sending
thunder and rain that day, which he
did. and God so answered him. and the
people saw Samuel's oneness with God,
and they feared greatly. It was some-
strained to TTve in His fear and servo
Him with the whole heart. In verso 7
he said, "Stand still that I may reason
with you before the Lord of all the
righteous acts of the Lord, which He
did to you and to your fathers." Com
pare DeuL Till, 2; Josh, xxill, 14. To
us the word would be. Consider tho
love of God to you In the great redemp
tion He has provided and let His love
constrain you to receive nim and yield
fully to Him for His service, a reason
able service In which we prove the good
and acceptable and perfect will of God
(Horn, xll, 1, 2).

ther the Father answered Him by a . . . f.-nttni- fnr
voice from heaven, but the people said
that It thundered (John xll, 2S, 29)..
13, 23. And Samuel said unto the people:
Fear not; ye have done all this wicked
ness. Tet turn not aside frcm following
the Lord, but serve the Lord with all
The special manifestation of God in
the thunder and the rain at such an
unusual time seemed to convince the
people that they really had sinned In
asking for a king, and they entreated
Samuel to pray for them that they
might not be punished. The power of
the Intercession of Moses and Samuel
Is seen In Jer. xv, L where the Lord
speaks of a time when even such as
they could not avail. That time had
not yet come, so Samuel urges them to
turn to the Lord and, being forgiven,
to serve Him henceforth with the
whole heart. What precious words for
us are these: "If we confess our sins.
He Is faithful and Just to forgive us
our sins and to cleanse us from all un
righteousness" (I John I, 9).

people for His great name's sake, because

When once we become the Lord's re
deemed people, no power can pluck us
out of His hand (John x. 27-29). and
where He begins a work He will finish
It (Phil. L C; Ps. cxxxviil. 8). He knows
us thoroughly before He chooses us,
and, having chosen us. He will perfect
us, but He may need to chasten us, and
that He will not fall to do as He sees
that we need It Consider Amos ill, 2;
Heb. xli. 5, 0. He testifies repeatedly
concerning His rebellious Israel that
all heaven did or will do for them Is all
for His name's sake (Ezek. xx, 9; xlv,
22, 44; xxxvl, 21, 22). Jeremiah prayed.
"O Lord, though our IniquiUes testify
against us, do Thou It for Thy name's
sake!" (Jer. xlv, 7.) For His name's
sake we have the forgiveness of sins (I
John II, 12).
23-23. Only fear the Lord and serve Him
in "truth with all your heart, for consider
how great things He hath done for you.
Samuel assures them that It would
be a sin for him to cease to pray for
them and that he would continue to
teach them the good and the right way,
