1 Corinthians 10:6-13 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Now these things became examples for us, so that we will not desire evil things as they did.[a] Don’t become idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and got up to play.[b][c] Let us not commit sexual immorality as some of them did,[d] and in a single day 23,000 people fell dead. Let us not test Christ as some of them did[e] and were destroyed by snakes. 10 Nor should we complain as some of them did,[f] and were killed by the destroyer.[g] 11 Now these things happened to them as examples, and they were written as a warning to us, on whom the ends of the ages have come. 12 So, whoever thinks he stands must be careful not to fall. 13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to humanity. God is faithful, and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape so that you are able to bear it.
