Then the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery 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.”
Many times He would deliver them;
They, however, were rebellious in their counsel,
And so sank down in their iniquity.
The Lord is gracious and merciful;
Slow to anger and great in lovingkindness.
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;
