    God stikes his chosen people down with a plague because of their disbelief and overall persnicketiness. He does give Moses a cure in the form of a bronze serpent. All anyone has to do be cure was to look apon the snake. Many refused, or did not believe looking at a snake would cure their illness. Those people who refused to look perished for their disbelief, but the ones who did were saved.
