They were all baptized into1 Moses in the cloud and in the sea.
They all ate the same spiritual food24
and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock3 that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.
Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert.46
Now these things occurred as examplesa5 to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did.
Do not be idolaters,6 as some of them were; as it is written: "The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in pagan revelry."b78
We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did--and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died.89
We should not test the Lord,9 as some of them did--and were killed by snakes.1010
And do not grumble, as some of them did11--and were killed12 by the destroying angel.1311
These things happened to them as examples14 and were written down as warnings for us,15 on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come.1612
So, if you think you are standing firm,17 be careful that you don't fall!
