SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:33 Y ellos, con todo lo que tenían, descendieron vivos al infierno, y los cubrió la tierra, y perecieron de en medio de la congregación.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 16:33 Verse 33. They, and all that appertained to them] Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and all that appertained to their respective families, went down into the pit caused by this supernatural earthquake; while the fire from the Lord consumed the 250 men that bare censers. Thus there were two distinct punishments, the pit and the fire, for the two divisions of these rebels.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 33. They, and all that [appertained] unto them, went down alive into the pit , etc.] The grave which the opening earth made for them, they and their families: and the earth closed upon them ; and covered them over; this it did of itself, as Aben Ezra remarks: this was a wonderful instance of almighty power, that it should open in such large fissures as to swallow up such a number of men, with their tents, goods, and cattle, and then close again so firmly, as not to have the least appearance upon it of what had happened, as Josephus observes f235 , and they perished from among the congregation ; and had a name and a place no more with them.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 23-34 - The seventy elders of Israel attend Moses. It is our duty to do what we can to countenance and support lawful authority when it is opposed. An those who would not perish with sinners, must come out from among them and be separate. It was in answer to the prayer of Moses, that God stirred up the hearts of the congregation to remove for their ow safety. Grace to separate from evil-doers is one of the things tha accompany salvation. God, in justice, left the rebels to the obstinac and hardness of their own hearts. Moses, by Divine direction, when all Israel were waiting the event, declares that if the rebels die a commo death, he will be content to be called and counted an imposter. As soo as Moses had spoken the word, God caused the earth to open and swallo them all up. The children perished with their parents; in which, thoug we cannot tell how bad they might be to deserve it, or how good God might be otherwise to them; yet of this we are sure, that Infinit Justice did them no wrong. It was altogether miraculous. God has, when he pleases, strange punishments for the workers of iniquity. It wa very significant. Considering how the earth is still in like manne loaded with the weight of man's sins, we have reason to wonder that is does not now sink under its load. The ruin of others should be ou warning. Could we, by faith, hear the outcries of those that are gon down to the bottomless pit, we should give more diligence than we do to escape for our lives, lest we also come into their condemnation.
