Deuteronomy 8:15

_ _ Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions — Large and venomous reptiles are found in great numbers there still, particularly in autumn. Travelers must use great caution in arranging their tents and beds at night; even during the day the legs not only of men, but of the animals they ride, are liable to be bitten.

_ _ who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint — (See on Deuteronomy 9:21).
