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 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.
