Numbers 21:3-13 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 The LORD heard the voice of Israel and delivered up the Canaanites; then they autterly destroyed them and their cities. Thus the name of the place was called b1Hormah. 4 Then they set out from Mount Hor by the way of the cRed Sea, to 2go around the land of Edom; and the dpeople became impatient because of the journey. 5 The people spoke against God and Moses, "3Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no efood and no water, and f4we loathe this miserable food."

The Bronze Serpent

6 5The LORD sent fiery serpents among the people and 6they bit the people, so that 7many people of Israel died. 7 8So the people came 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 Moses interceded for the people. 8 Then the LORD said 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." 9 And Moses made a 11bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about, that if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived. 10 12Now the sons of Israel moved out and camped in Oboth. 11 They journeyed from Oboth and camped at Iye-abarim, in the wilderness which is opposite Moab, to the h east . 12 13From there they set out and camped in iWadi Zered. 13 From there they journeyed and camped on the other side of the Arnon, which is in the wilderness that comes out of the border of the Amorites, 14for the Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites.
