Now these things occurred as examples for us, so that we might not desire evil as they did.
Do not become idolaters as some of them did; as it is written, "The people sat down to eat and drink, and they rose up to play."
We must not indulge in sexual immorality as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in a single day.
We must not put Christ a to the test, as some of them did, and were destroyed by serpents.
And do not complain as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
