The LORDheard the voice of Israel and delivered up the Canaanites; then they autterlydestroyed them and their cities. Thus the name of the place was calledb1Hormah.
Then they set out from MountHor by the way of the cRedSea, to 2goaround the land of Edom; and the dpeoplebecameimpatient because of the journey.
The peoplespoke against God and Moses, "3Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is noefood and nowater, and f4we loathe this miserablefood."
65The LORDsentfieryserpents among the people and 6they bit the people, so that 7manypeople of Israeldied.
78So the peoplecame to Moses and said, "We have sinned, because we have spoken against the LORD and you; 9intercede with the LORD, that He may remove the serpents from us." And Mosesinterceded for the people.
Then the LORDsaid to Moses, "gMake a 10fiery serpent, and set it on a standard; and it shall come about, that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, he will live."
And Mosesmade a 11bronzeserpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpentbitanyman, when he looked to the bronzeserpent, he lived.
