1 H7141 Now Korah, H1121 the son H3324 of Izhar, H1121 the son H6955 of Kohath, H1121 the son H3878 of Levi, H1885 with Dathan H48 and Abiram, H1121 the sons H446 of Eliab, H203 and On, H1121 the son H6431 of Peleth, H1121 sons H7205 of Reuben, H3947 took men:
2 H6965 and they rose up H6440 before H4872 Moses, H582 with certain H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel, H3967 two hundred H2572 fifty H5387 princes H4150 of the congregation, H7148 called H5712 to the assembly, H582 men H8034 of renown;
3 H6950 and they assembled themselves together H4872 against Moses H175 and against Aaron, H559 and said H7227 to them, "You take too much H5712 on yourself, since all the congregation H6918 are holy, H3068 everyone of them, and Yahweh H8432 is among H5375 them: why then lift yourselves up H6951 above the assembly H3068 of Yahweh?"
5 H1696 and he spoke H7141 to Korah H5712 and to all his company, H559 saying, H1242 "In the morning H3068 Yahweh H3045 will show H6918 who are his, and who is holy, H7126 and will cause him to come near H977 to him: even him whom he shall choose H7126 he will cause to come near to him.
7 H5414 and put H784 fire H2004 in them, H7760 and put H7004 incense H6440 on them before H3068 Yahweh H4279 tomorrow: H376 and it shall be that the man H3068 whom Yahweh H977 chooses, H6918 he shall be holy. H7227 You have gone too far, H1121 you sons H3878 of Levi!"
9 H4592 Is it a small thing H430 to you, that the God H3478 of Israel H914 has separated H5712 you from the congregation H3478 of Israel, H7126 to bring you near H5647 to himself, to do H5656 the service H4908 of the tabernacle H3068 of Yahweh, H5975 and to stand H6440 before H5712 the congregation H8334 to minister to them;
10 H7126 and that he has brought you near, H251 and all your brothers H1121 the sons H3878 of Levi H1245 with you? and do you seek H3550 the priesthood also?
11 H3651 Therefore H5712 you and all your company H3259 are gathered together H3068 against Yahweh: H175 and Aaron, H3885 what is he that you murmur against him?"
12 H4872 Moses H7971 sent H7121 to call H1885 Dathan H48 and Abiram, H1121 the sons H446 of Eliab; H559 and they said, H5927 "We won't come up:
13 H4592 is it a small thing H3588 that H5927 you have brought us up H776 out of a land H2100 flowing H2461 with milk H1706 and honey, H4191 to kill H4057 us in the wilderness, H8323 but you must also H8323 make H8323 yourself a prince over us?
14 H637 Moreover H935 you haven't brought H776 us into a land H2100 flowing H2461 with milk H1706 and honey, H5414 nor given H5159 us inheritance H7704 of fields H3754 and vineyards: H5365 will you put out H5869 the eyes H582 of these men? H5927 We won't come up."
15 H4872 Moses H3966 was very H2734 angry, H559 and said H3068 to Yahweh, H6437 "Don't respect H4503 their offering: H5375 I have not taken H259 one H2543 donkey H7489 from them, neither have I hurt H259 one of them."
16 H4872 Moses H559 said H7141 to Korah, H5712 "You and all your company H6440 go before H3068 Yahweh, H175 you, and they, and Aaron, H4279 tomorrow:
17 H376 and each man H3947 take H4289 his censer, H5414 and put H7004 incense H376 on them, and each man H7126 bring H6440 before H3068 Yahweh H4289 his censer, H3967 two hundred H2572 fifty H4289 censers; H175 you also, and Aaron, H376 each H4289 his censer."
18 H376 They each H3947 took H4289 his censer, H5414 and put H784 fire H7760 in them, and laid H7004 incense H5975 thereon, and stood H6607 at the door H168 of the Tent H4150 of Meeting H4872 with Moses H175 and Aaron.
19 H7141 Korah H6950 assembled H5712 all the congregation H6607 against them to the door H168 of the Tent H4150 of Meeting: H3519 and the glory H3068 of Yahweh H7200 appeared H5712 to all the congregation.
21 H914 "Separate H8432 yourselves from among H5712 this congregation, H3615 that I may consume H7281 them in a moment!"
22 H5307 They fell H6440 on their faces, H559 and said, H430 "God, H410 the God H7307 of the spirits H1320 of all flesh, H259 shall one H376 man H2398 sin, H7107 and will you be angry H5712 with all the congregation?"
24 H1696 "Speak H5712 to the congregation, H559 saying, H5927 ‘Get away H5439 from around H4908 the tent H7141 of Korah, H1885 Dathan, H48 and Abiram!'"
25 H4872 Moses H6965 rose up H3212 and went H1885 to Dathan H48 and Abiram; H2205 and the elders H3478 of Israel H3212 followed H310 him.
26 H1696 He spoke H5712 to the congregation, H559 saying, H5493 "Depart, H168 please, from the tents H7563 of these wicked H582 men, H5060 and touch H5595 nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed H2403 in all their sins!"
27 H5927 So they went H4908 away from the tent H7141 of Korah, H1885 Dathan, H48 and Abiram, H5439 on every side: H1885 and Dathan H48 and Abiram H3318 came out, H5324 and stood H6607 at the door H168 of their tents, H802 and their wives, H1121 and their sons, H2945 and their little ones.
28 H4872 Moses H559 said, H3045 "Hereby you shall know H3068 that Yahweh H7971 has sent H6213 me to do H4639 all these works; H3820 for they are not from my own mind.
29 H4191 If these men die H4194 the common death H120 of all men, H6485 or if they be visited H6486 after the visitation H120 of all men; H3068 then Yahweh H7971 hasn't sent me.
30 H3068 But if Yahweh H1254 make H1278 a new thing, H127 and the ground H6475 open H6310 its mouth, H1104 and swallow them up, H3381 with all that appertain to them, and they go down H2416 alive H7585 into Sheol; H3045 then you shall understand H582 that these men H5006 have despised H3068 Yahweh."
31 H3615 It happened, as he made an end H1696 of speaking H1697 all these words, H127 that the ground H1234 split apart that was under them;
32 H776 and the earth H6605 opened H6310 its mouth, H1104 and swallowed them up, H1004 and their households, H120 and all the men H7141 who appertained to Korah, H7399 and all their goods.
33 H3381 So they, and all that appertained to them, went down H2416 alive H7585 into Sheol: H776 and the earth H3680 closed H6 on them, and they perished H8432 from among H6951 the assembly.
34 H3478 All Israel H5439 that were around H5127 them fled H6963 at their cry; H559 for they said, H776 "Lest the earth H1104 swallow us up!"
35 H784 Fire H3318 came forth H3068 from Yahweh, H398 and devoured H3967 the two hundred H2572 fifty H376 men H7126 who offered H7004 the incense.
37 H559 "Speak H499 to Eleazar H1121 the son H175 of Aaron H3548 the priest, H7311 that he take up H4289 the censers H996 out H8316 of the burning, H2219 and scatter H784 the fire H1973 yonder; H6942 for they are holy,
38 H4289 even the censers H2400 of these sinners H5315 against their own lives; H6213 and let them be made H7555 beaten H6341 plates H6826 for a covering H4196 of the altar: H7126 for they offered H6440 them before H3068 Yahweh; H6942 therefore they are holy; H226 and they shall be a sign H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel."
39 H499 Eleazar H3548 the priest H3947 took H5178 the bronze H4289 censers, H8313 which those who were burnt H7126 had offered; H7554 and they beat H6826 them out for a covering H4196 of the altar,
40 H2146 to be a memorial H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel, H834 to the end that H376 no stranger, H2233 who isn't of the seed H175 of Aaron, H7126 comes near H6999 to burn H7004 incense H6440 before H3068 Yahweh; H7141 that he not be as Korah, H5712 and as his company: H3068 as Yahweh H1696 spoke H3027 to him by H4872 Moses.
41 H4283 But on the next day H5712 all the congregation H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H3885 murmured H4872 against Moses H175 and against Aaron, H559 saying, H4191 "You have killed H3068 Yahweh's H5971 people!"
42 H5712 It happened, when the congregation H6950 was assembled H4872 against Moses H175 and against Aaron, H6437 that they looked H168 toward the Tent H4150 of Meeting: H6051 and behold, the cloud H3680 covered H3519 it, and the glory H3068 of Yahweh H7200 appeared.
45 H7426 "Get away H8432 from among H5712 this congregation, H3615 that I may consume H7281 them in a moment!" H5307 They fell H6440 on their faces.
46 H4872 Moses H559 said H175 to Aaron, H3947 "Take H4289 your censer, H5414 and put H784 fire H6440 from off H4196 the altar H7760 in it, and lay H7004 incense H3212 on it, and carry H4120 it quickly H5712 to the congregation, H3722 and make atonement H7110 for them; for wrath H3318 has gone out H3068 from Yahweh! H5063 The plague H2490 has begun."
47 H175 Aaron H3947 did H4872 as Moses H1696 said, H7323 and ran H8432 into the midst H6951 of the assembly; H5063 and behold, the plague H2490 has begun H5971 among the people: H5414 and he put H7004 on the incense, H3722 and made atonement H5971 for the people.
48 H5975 He stood H4191 between the dead H2416 and the living; H4046 and the plague H6113 was stayed.
49 H4191 Now those who died H4046 by the plague H702 were fourteen H505 thousand H7651 and seven H3967 hundred, H4191 besides those who died H1697 about the matter H7141 of Korah.
