Aaron - Aaron's Serpent

Postby dreams » Fri Oct 24, 2003 11:48 am

Reference to the standoff in Pharoh's court, where the staff of God (as a serpent) swallows the serpents of Jannes and Jambres.

Used by Alexander Pope. (1688-1744)
"And hence one master-passion in the breast, Like Aaron's serpent, swallows up the rest."

Essay on Man. Epistle ii. Line 131.
