Isaiah 30:6; Numbers 21:6; Jeremiah 46:22

An woracle on xthe beasts of ythe Negeb.

Through a land of trouble and anguish,

from where come the lioness and the lion,

the adder and the zflying fiery serpent,

they carry their riches on the backs of donkeys,

and their treasures on the humps of camels,

to a people that cannot profit them.


fThen the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and gthey bit the people, so that many people of Israel died.


22  She makes ua sound like a serpent gliding away;

for her enemies march in force

and come against her with axes

vlike those who fell trees.
