Fiery Flying Serpents
Isaiah 14:29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.
Isaiah 30:6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from whence come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit them.
- Fiery: Saraph saw-rawf’ (burning)
- Flying: ‘Uwph oof (flying, hovering)
- Serpent: Saraph saw-rawf’ (burning, same name as the serpents in the wilderness)
