People's Bible Notes for Luke 10:19


Lu 10:19 To tread on serpents and scorpions. Evidently an allusion to the promise that the seed of woman shall bruise the serpent's head (Ge 3:15). It is a promise of victory over the power of sin, of victory "over all the power of the enemy". The connection shows that it is symbolical.
