THE SUNDAY-SCHOO- L LESSOM.
I'or .Inly 10. Jerolonm'a Idolatry."
CONTEXT. Tho division of the king-
dom into two parts, Israel on tho north
and Judah'on the south, effected under
circumstances described last
sented two sovereigns who naturally felt
lealous of each other. Rhelioboarn, tho
King of Judah. considering himself the
successor of Solomon, his father, was dis-
posed to claim all the country, and he as-
sembled the chief men ana proposed to
recover by force the ten tribes who had
rebelled. But this was contrary to tho
divine will as announced by Shemalan. the
man of God. Hence, the preparations for
war were abandoned and the people re-
turned to their homes to engage in the
ordinary pursuits of peace. Then began a
new career for the chosen people. Each
nation had opportunity to display its loy-
alty to God and to work out Its destiny.
RESIDENCE (Verse 25) The first act
of Jeroboam. King of Israel, was to fix
his capital. Jerusalem continued to be the
seat o"f government for Judah. Shechem
was built or rather rebuilt for the north-
ern kingdom. This lay between Mount
Rbal and Mount Genlzlm, near the place
where Joshua encamped after the Inva-
sion preparatory to the conquest. Shechem
had been a very Important place In pa-
triarchal history, lying midway between
the Jordan and the great sea. It was ut-
terly destroyed by Ablmelech in 120G B.
C. (Judges lx, 45), and so remained in
ruins until Jeroboam's time crossing the
Jordan. Jeroboam selected a second resi-
dence In the tribe of Gad on the site of a.
citv in the time of Jacob (Gen. xxxu,
which had been destroyed by Gide-
on. (Judges viil, 17.) This he rebuilt, and
it Is probable that In both cities he erected
palaces. By this method he expected to
gain favor with the people in both the
eastern and western porttoii3of his king-
dom. AIL this was wise and proper.
STRATEGY (Verses 20 and 27.) Jero-
boam was a shrewd but worldly states-
man. He knew how to manage the af-
fairs of pubJo Interest so as to strength-
en himself In the kingdom. His two resi-
dences being established he next reflected
that tho item of religion was of great mo-
ment. The people had been accustomed
on certain occasions to go up to Jerusa-
lem from all parts of the land. There
stood the temple and there were observed
tho various religious ceremonies. All this
tended to national unity. With pious re-
gard for the reJgious customs of their
fathers all men had faithfully repaired
year after year to the place dearer than
all others. There they had commingled,
talked freely of their common origin and
destiny. (Deut. ill; All this, more-
over, was by divine command. Jeroboam
saw plainly that it would be impossible
for him to maintain tho kingdom which
bad been set up it this practice continued.
Sooner or later the people would return to
their old allegiance and he would be put

this embarrassing condition. The sim-
plest p.an was to change the national re-
ligion, and that course was adopted after
duo consultation with the state oltlcla.8.
It was resolved to return to the religion
of Egypt. By so doing they would bo
wholly beparated from Judah, and they
would more easily gain the sympathy of
tho Egyptian court, forming an alliance
of great value. The religion of Egypt,
moreover, appealed to the Israclittj, be-
cause it presented something visible to be
worshiped. Tho fathers had returned to
it (Ex. xxxii; 4) in the time of Moses.
A pretext was also made that the Jour-
ney to Jerusalem was too great. To save
tho tinw two places were appointed and
calves ' gold were set up. one in Bethel
in the southern part or tne Ktngaora anu
one at Dan. in the northern part. To
make all this acceptable tha royal procla-
mation declared that these were the gods
that brought Israel out of Egypt, an ap-
peal that would bo likely to meet popular

dently expected his people would follow his
adv ice and example, and he had good rea-
son to etpect it. Thero wa the deposi-
tion of the multitude, then as alwajs In
all lands to regard those in authority on
which ho might count. Besides, the re-
bellion was a popular movement, resulting
in a new government (I Kings xll,
which every one would be glad to support.
and every new measure In that Interest
would find favor. And ao Israel turned
away from Jerusalem to worship at Dan,
making pilgrimages northward Instead of
southward, abandoning tho altars set up
by divine direction in tha city of David,
abandoning also the hopes long cherished
and the sweet memories of the years long
past. It is probable that a few of the
more pious souls adhered to tho ancient
faith and worship (I Kings xlx. IS;, but
the defection was Quite general. This
first ruler of the northern kingdom went
Into history as the causa of tho apostasy.
(II Kings xvii, 2L)
PRIESTHOOD (Verse 31.) By dlvina
order of the sons of Jacob and his posteri-
ty were separated from secular to holy
pursuits. The sons of Levi were appointed
to the priesthood. Whatever other pur-
pose was served by this method, two ends
were gained tha men luiew and all knew
who Ihould fill these positions, and they
were trained accordingly. That did not
prevent a prophetlo office and ministry,
regulated by the call of the Holy Spirit.
(Isa. 11, 1.) It merely provided for those
stated and uniform services which were
appointed In connection with tbe sacri-
fices. The priesthood continued In Judah
as It had been established centuries be-
fore, but Jeroboam, in harmony with bis,
purpose for a national religion, Instituted
a new order ho made priests of tho low-
est of the people, those of humble origin
and of less repute. This action on the
part of the King led the Uevites, who were
In Israel, to go to Jerusalem. (II Chron.
xi, To completo his wicked policy,
Jeroboam erected temples for tho new
worship ne had eat up.
SACRIFICES (Versa 32 ) Tho origin of
sacrificial worship Is unknown. There are
somo who think that It was Instituted by
tho Almighty, while others be.ieye that
it cama through the natural Impulse of
the human heart. One thing Is certain,
that it appeared very early In tha history
of the race. (Gen. lv. 4 ) It was contin-
ued all through the patriarchal dispensa-
tion and became a prominent feature In
the institutes of Moses. (Gen. xxli, 13; Ex.
xxtx. IS) It was also common in tho Pa-
gan world. (I ICings xvill. 25.) Jeroboam
therefore introduced sacrifices Into the
system of religion which he set up. He
must have known that this was nectssary
to retain his hold upon the people.
The golden calves at Bethel and Dan, vis-
ible signs of a divinity toward which all
men instinctively turn, would not have
been accepted as worthy objects of wor-
ship, had thero been no offering maBa
ROYALTY (Verse S3.) It appears that
on this great feast day Jeroboam off-
iciated In person. He set aside for the
timo being the priests whom he had ap-
pointed, who were his servants and tools,
and assumed tho functions of the holy of-
fice. Had that occurred In Judnh It would
have been a serious offense, for God de-
signed "that the priestly and kingly of-
fices should be separate, and ho was dis-
pleased with Saul, who In his trouble took
the same liberty. (I Sam. xxvlll, 6.) But
In this case Jeroboam was merely acting
out In detail his whole policy of turning
his Kingdom away from tho service of
Jehovah. And In this act he gave an ex-
hibition of the new royalty. Thera was
no longer on the throne a man who re-
garded himself a servant of God, obligated
to keep tho law of God, but an absolute
monarch, who, without any respect to tho
Dlvino will, acted according to his pleas-
ure In all things, whatsoever he devised
In his own heart. In religious and ecclesi-
astical affairs, as well as In civil and
CONCLUSION Hera we have the se-
cret of Jeroboam's conduct, the formative
principles of his character. He was cen-
tered In self. He built around tha one
nn.tnnHm. thmittht of his ow n Interests.
What he desired wae not faithfulness in
office, not the weitare oi me peopiu
had called him to rule, net the advance-
ment of the cause of truth and righteous-
ness In the earth and tha overthrow of
oppression and wrong, but the establish-
ment of his own power, the preservation
of the government In his own hands. In
order to do that he was willing to pervert
the faith, to change the customs and man-
ners, to appoint unworthy persons to min-
ister in a degrading form of worship, to
take to himself the dignities of the holy
office, and so by his own example to lower
the standards and Ideals of his subjects
In those matters that are eminently sa-
cred. Selfishness and egotism clothed It-
self in Idolatrous forms and heathen prac-
tices and turned back the civilization of
the world for centuries. Woe unto tha
wicked and ambitious rulers.
