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 LORD5 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
