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.
Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes, and were brought low through their iniquity.
Nevertheless he regarded their distress, when he heard their cry.
He remembered for their sake his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
They shall pour forth the fame of thy abundant goodness, and shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
