Then God blessed them, and God said to them,”Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds, of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” And God said,”See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of the earth and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, it which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. Then God saw everything that He made, and indeed it was good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Horeb by the way of the Red Sea, to go around the land of Eden; and the soul of the people became very discouraged on the way. And the people spoke against God and against Moses:’Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.’ So the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses and said,’We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you; pray to Lord that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. Then the Lord said to Moses,”Make a fiery serpent and set the serpent on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.”

12.The Good Shepherd Exodus 34:4-9,”So he cut two tablets of stone like the first ones. Then Moses rose early in the morning and went up Mt. Sinai, as the Lord has commanded him; and he took in his hand two tablets of stone. Now the Lord desdended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed,’The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the quilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and fourth generation. So Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. Then he said,”If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your inheritance.”
