Numbers 21:5-9

5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore

have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for

[there is] no bread, neither [is there any] water; and our soul

loatheth this light bread. 6 And the LORD sent fiery serpents

among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of

Israel died. 7 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We

have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against

thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us.

And Moses prayed for the people. 8 And the LORD said unto Moses,

Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall

come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon

it, shall live. 9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it

upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any

man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
