Then the LORD sent venomous snakes1 among them; they bit the people and many Israelites died.27
The people came to Moses3 and said, "We sinned4 when we spoke against the LORD and against you. Pray that the LORD 5 will take the snakes away from us." So Moses prayed6 for the people.
The LORD said to Moses, "Make a snake and put it up on a pole;7 anyone who is bitten can look at it and live."
So Moses made a bronze snake8 and put it up on a pole. Then when anyone was bitten by a snake and looked at the bronze snake, he lived.9
