Numbers 21:1-9

And [when] king
<04428>
Arad
<06166>
the Canaanite
<03669>_,
which dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in the south
<05045>_,
heard
<08085> (8799)
tell that Israel
<03478>
came
<0935> (8802)
by the way
<01870>
of the spies
<0871>_;
then he fought
<03898> (8735)
against Israel
<03478>_,
and took
<07617> (8799)
[some] of them prisoners
<07628>_.
And Israel
<03478>
vowed
<05087> (8799)
a vow
<05088>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
If thou wilt indeed
<05414> (8800)
deliver
<05414> (8799)
this people
<05971>
into my hand
<03027>_,
then I will utterly destroy
<02763> (8689)
their cities
<05892>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
hearkened
<08085> (8799)
to the voice
<06963>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and delivered up
<05414> (8799)
the Canaanites
<03669>_;
and they utterly destroyed
<02763> (8686)
them and their cities
<05892>_:
and he called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of the place
<04725>
Hormah
<02767>_.
{Hormah: that is, Utter destruction}
And they journeyed
<05265> (8799)
from mount
<02022>
Hor
<02023>
by the way
<01870>
of the Red
<05488>
sea
<03220>_,
to compass
<05437> (8800)
the land
<0776>
of Edom
<0123>_:
and the soul
<05315>
of the people
<05971>
was much discouraged
<07114> (8799)
because of the way
<01870>_.
{discouraged: or, grieved: Heb. shortened}
And the people
<05971>
spake
<01696> (8762)
against God
<0430>_,
and against Moses
<04872>_,
Wherefore have ye brought us up
<05927> (8689)
out of Egypt
<04714>
to die
<04191> (8800)
in the wilderness
<04057>_?
for [there is] no bread
<03899>_,
neither [is there any] water
<04325>_;
and our soul
<05315>
loatheth
<06973> (8804)
this light
<07052>
bread
<03899>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
sent
<07971> (8762)
fiery
<08314>
serpents
<05175>
among the people
<05971>_,
and they bit
<05391> (8762)
the people
<05971>_;
and much
<07227>
people
<05971>
of Israel
<03478>
died
<04191> (8799)_.
Therefore the people
<05971>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Moses
<04872>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
We have sinned
<02398> (8804)_,
for we have spoken
<01696> (8765)
against the LORD
<03068>_,
and against thee; pray
<06419> (8690)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
that he take away
<05493> (8686)
the serpents
<05175>
from us. And Moses
<04872>
prayed
<06419> (8691)
for the people
<05971>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Moses
<04872>_,
Make
<06213> (8798)
thee a fiery serpent
<08314>_,
and set
<07760> (8798)
it upon a pole
<05251>_:
and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten
<05391> (8803)_,
when he looketh
<07200> (8804)
upon it, shall live
<02425> (8804)_.
And Moses
<04872>
made
<06213> (8799)
a serpent
<05175>
of brass
<05178>_,
and put
<07760> (8799)
it upon a pole
<05251>_,
and it came to pass, that if a serpent
<05175>
had bitten
<05391> (8804)
any man
<0376>_,
when he beheld
<05027> (8689)
the serpent
<05175>
of brass
<05178>_,
he lived
<02425> (8804)_.
