*Now aKorah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and bDathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men: And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, bfamous in the congregation, men of renown: And cthey gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing dall the congregation are holy, every one of them, eand the Lord is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the Lord? And when Moses heard it, fhe fell upon his face: And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the Lord will shew who are his, and who is gholy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath hchosen will he cause to icome near unto him. This do; Take you jcensers, Korah, and all his company; And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the Lord to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the Lord doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi. And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi: Seemeth it but ka small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath lseparated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the Lord, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them? 10 And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also? 11 For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered together against the Lord: mand what is Aaron, that ye murmur against him? 12 And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up: 13 nIs it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land othat floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou pmake thyself altogether a prince over us? 14 Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land othat floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up. 15 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the Lord, qRespect not thou their offering: rI have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them. 16 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company sbefore the Lord, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow: 17 And ttake every man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring ye before the Lord every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou also, and Aaron, each of you his censer. 18 And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron. 19 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and uthe glory of the Lord appeared unto all the congregation. 20 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 21 xSeparate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them yin a moment. 22 And they zfell upon their faces, and said, O God, athe God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? 23 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 24 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. 25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him. 26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, bDepart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye cbe consumed in all their sins. 27 So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and dstood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children. 28 And Moses said, cHereby ye shall know that the Lord hath sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them eof mine own mind. 29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be fvisited after the visitation of all men; then the Lord hath not sent me. 30 But if the Lord make a new thing, and gthe earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they hgo down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men ihave provoked the Lord. 31 jAnd it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them: 32 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and kall the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. 33 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.
