The First Mention
The question about what you have in your hands was first asked by God to Moses in Exodus 4:2 (KJV) and Moses responded that he had “A Staff” and God used the staff to perform a miracle
“the Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it” (Exodus 4:3)
