16:3 and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said to them, You take too much on you, seeing all the congregation are holy, everyone of them, and Yahweh is among them: why then lift you up yourselves above the assembly of Yahweh?
16:4 When Moses heard it, he fell on his face:
16:5 and he spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, In the morning Yahweh will show who are his, and who is holy, and will cause him to come near to him: even him whom he shall choose will he cause to come near to him.
16:8 Moses said to Korah, Hear now, you sons of Levi:
16:9 [seems it but] a small thing to you, that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself, to do the service of the tent of Yahweh, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them;
16:10 and that he has brought you near, and all your brothers the sons of Levi with you? and seek you the priesthood also?
16:15 Moses was very angry, and said to Yahweh, "Don`t respect their offering: I have not taken one donkey from them, neither have I hurt one of them."
16:21 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.
16:23 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
16:24 Speak to the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tent of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
16:25 Moses rose up and went to Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him.
16:27 So they got them up from the tent of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood at the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little ones.
16:28 Moses said, Hereby you shall know that Yahweh has sent me to do all these works; for [I have] not [done them] of my own mind.
16:30 But if Yahweh make a new thing, and the ground open its mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain to them, and they go down alive into Sheol; then you shall understand that these men have despised Yahweh.
16:32 and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who appertained to Korah, and all their goods.
16:34 All Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them; for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up.
16:36 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
16:38 even the censers of these sinners against their own lives; and let them be made beaten plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before Yahweh; therefore they are holy; and they shall be a sign to the children of Israel.
16:40 to be a memorial to the children of Israel, to the end that no stranger, who isn`t of the seed of Aaron, comes near to burn incense before Yahweh; that he not be as Korah, and as his company: as Yahweh spoke to him by Moses.
16:42 It happened, when the congregation was assembled against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tent of meeting: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of Yahweh appeared.
16:44 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
16:45 Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment. They fell on their faces.
16:46 Moses said to Aaron, Take they censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and lay incense thereon, and carry it quickly to the congregation, and make atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from Yahweh; the plague is begun.
16:48 He stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.
16:49 Now those who died by the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides those who died about the matter of Korah.
