Behold, I give you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will in any way hurt you.
You will tread on the lion and cobra. You will trample the young lion and the serpent underfoot.
they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will in no way hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
The nursing child will play near a cobra's hole, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den.
The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain," says Yahweh.
By his Spirit the heavens are garnished. His hand has pierced the swift serpent.
