For 1I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all2under the cloud and all3passedthrough the sea;
and all were 4baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
and all5ate the samespiritualfood;
and all6drank the samespiritualdrink, for they were drinking from a spiritualrock which followed them; and the rock was aChrist.
5Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; for 7they were laidlow in the wilderness.
6Nowthesethingshappened as 8examples for us, so that we would not craveevilthings as 9they alsocraved.
