W. Garrett Horder, comp.  The Poets’ Bible: New Testament.  1895.
 
St. Paul and the Viper
Richard Crashaw (G.) (c. 1613–1649)
 
ACTS XXVIII. 3.

PAUL, fear thou nought; no poison bears this asp:
  It seeks to learn the virtue of thy hand.
Not as a foe, but suppliant, it would clasp;
  Not fear, but pity, it would fain command.
