1 H7141 Now Korah, H1121 the son H3324 of Izhar, H1121 the son H6955 of Kohath, H1121 the son H3878 of Levi, H1885 and 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 [H8799] took men:
2 H6965 [H8799] And they rose up H6440 before H4872 Moses, H582 with certain H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel, H3967 two hundred H2572 and fifty H5387 princes H5712 of the assembly, H7148 famous H4150 in the congregation, H582 men H8034 of renown:
3 H6950 [H8735] And they gathered themselves together H4872 against Moses H175 and against Aaron, H559 [H8799] and said H7227 to them, Ye take too much H5712 upon you, seeing all the congregation H6918 are holy, H3068 every one of them, and the LORD H8432 is among H5375 [H8691] them: why then do ye raise H6951 yourselves above the congregation H3068 of the LORD?
5 H1696 [H8762] And he spoke H7141 to Korah H5712 and to all his company, H559 [H8800] saying, H1242 Even to morrow H3068 the LORD H3045 [H8686] will show H6918 who are his, and who is holy; H7126 [H8689] and will cause him to come near H977 [H8799] to him: even him whom he hath chosen H7126 [H8686] will he cause to come near to him.
6 H6213 [H8798] This do; H3947 [H8798] Take H4289 for yourselves censers, H7141 Korah, H5712 and all his company;
7 H5414 [H8798] And put H784 fire H2004 in them, H7760 [H8798] and put H7004 incense H6440 in them before H3068 the LORD H4279 to morrow: H376 and it shall be that the man H3068 whom the LORD H977 [H8799] doth choose, H6918 he shall be holy: H7227 ye take too much H1121 upon you, ye sons H3878 of Levi.
8 H4872 And Moses H559 [H8799] said H7141 to Korah, H8085 [H8798] Hear, H1121 I pray you, ye sons H3878 of Levi:
9 H4592 Seemeth it but a small thing H430 to you, that the God H3478 of Israel H914 [H8689] hath separated H5712 you from the congregation H3478 of Israel, H7126 [H8687] to bring you near H5647 [H8800] to himself to do H5656 the service H4908 of the tabernacle H3068 of the LORD, H5975 [H8800] and to stand H6440 before H5712 the congregation H8334 [H8763] to minister to them?
10 H7126 [H8686] And he hath brought thee near H251 to him, and all thy brethren H1121 the sons H3878 of Levi H1245 [H8765] with thee: and seek H3550 ye the priesthood also?
11 H3651 For which cause H5712 both thou and all thy company H3259 [H8737] are gathered together H3068 against the LORD: H175 and what is Aaron, H3885 H3885 [H8686] that ye murmur against him?
12 H4872 And Moses H7971 [H8799] sent H7121 [H8800] to call H1885 Dathan H48 and Abiram, H1121 the sons H446 of Eliab: H559 [H8799] who said, H5927 [H8799] We will not come up:
13 H4592 Is it a small thing H3588 that H5927 [H8689] thou hast brought us H776 out of a land H2100 [H8802] that floweth H2461 with milk H1706 and honey, H4191 [H8687] to kill H4057 us in the wilderness, H8323 0 except thou make H8323 [H8692] thyself altogether H8323 [H8691] a prince over us?
14 H637 Moreover H935 [H8689] thou hast not brought H776 us into a land H2100 [H8802] that floweth H2461 with milk H1706 and honey, H5414 [H8799] or given H5159 us inheritance H7704 of fields H3754 and vineyards: H5365 [H8762] wilt thou put out H5869 the eyes H582 of these men? H5927 [H8799] we will not come up.
15 H4872 And Moses H3966 was very H2734 [H8799] angry, H559 [H8799] and said H3068 to the LORD, H6437 [H8799] Respect H4503 not thou their offering: H5375 [H8804] I have not taken H259 one H2543 donkey H7489 [H8689] from them, neither have I hurt H259 one of them.
16 H4872 And Moses H559 [H8799] said H7141 to Korah, H5712 Be thou and all thy company H6440 before H3068 the LORD, H175 thou, and they, and Aaron, H4279 to morrow:
17 H3947 [H8798] And take H376 every man H4289 his censer, H5414 [H8804] and put H7004 incense H7126 [H8689] in them, and bring H6440 ye before H3068 the LORD H376 every man H4289 his censer, H3967 two hundred H2572 and fifty H4289 censers; H175 thou also, and Aaron, H376 each H4289 of you his censer.
18 H3947 [H8799] And they took H376 every man H4289 his censer, H5414 [H8799] and put H784 fire H7760 [H8799] in them, and laid H7004 incense H5975 [H8799] on them, and stood H6607 in the door H168 of the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation H4872 with Moses H175 and Aaron.
19 H7141 And Korah H6950 [H8686] gathered H5712 all the congregation H6607 against them to the door H168 of the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation: H3519 and the glory H3068 of the LORD H7200 [H8735] appeared H5712 to all the congregation.
21 H914 [H8734] Separate H8432 yourselves from among H5712 this congregation, H3615 [H8762] that I may consume H7281 them in a moment.
22 H5307 [H8799] And they fell H6440 upon their faces, H559 [H8799] and said, H410 O God, H430 the God H7307 of the spirits H1320 of all flesh, H259 shall one H376 man H2398 [H8799] sin, H7107 [H8799] and wilt thou be angry H5712 with all the congregation?
24 H1696 [H8761] Speak H5712 to the congregation, H559 [H8800] saying, H5927 [H8734] Withdraw yourselves H5439 from about H4908 the tabernacle H7141 of Korah, H1885 Dathan, H48 and Abiram.
25 H4872 And Moses H6965 [H8799] rose up H3212 [H8799] and went H1885 to Dathan H48 and Abiram; H2205 and the elders H3478 of Israel H3212 [H8799] followed H310 him.
26 H1696 [H8762] And he spoke H5712 to the congregation, H559 [H8800] saying, H5493 [H8798] Depart, H168 I pray you, from the tents H7563 of these wicked H582 men, H5060 [H8799] and touch H5595 [H8735] nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed H2403 in all their sins.
27 H5927 [H8735] So they withdrew H4908 from the tabernacle H7141 of Korah, H1885 Dathan, H48 and Abiram, H5439 on every side: H1885 and Dathan H48 and Abiram H3318 [H8804] came out, H5324 [H8737] and stood H6607 in the door H168 of their tents, H802 and their wives, H1121 and their sons, H2945 and their little children.
28 H4872 And Moses H559 [H8799] said, H3045 [H8799] by this ye shall know H3068 that the LORD H7971 [H8804] hath sent H6213 [H8800] me to do H4639 all these works; H3820 for I have not done them of my own mind.
29 H4191 [H8799] If these men shall die H4194 the common death H120 of all men, H6485 [H8735] or if they be visited H6486 after the visitation H120 of all men; H3068 then the LORD H7971 [H8804] hath not sent me.
30 H3068 But if the LORD H1254 [H8799] shall make H1278 a new thing, H127 and the earth H6475 [H8804] shall open H6310 her mouth, H1104 [H8804] and swallow them up, H3381 [H8804] with all that appertain to them, and they go down H2416 alive H7585 into the pit; H3045 [H8804] then ye shall understand H582 that these men H5006 [H8765] have provoked H3068 the LORD.
31 H3615 [H8763] And it came to pass, as he had finished H1696 [H8763] speaking H1697 all these words, H127 that the ground H1234 [H8735] opened up that was under them:
32 H776 And the earth H6605 [H8799] opened H6310 her mouth, H1104 [H8799] and swallowed them up, H1004 and their houses, H120 and all the men H7141 that appertained to Korah, H7399 and all their goods.
33 H3381 [H8799] They, and all that appertained to them, went down H2416 alive H7585 into the pit, H776 and the earth H3680 [H8762] closed H6 [H8799] upon them: and they perished H8432 from among H6951 the congregation.
34 H3478 And all Israel H5439 that were around H5127 [H8804] them fled H6963 at the cry H559 [H8804] of them: for they said, H776 Lest the earth H1104 [H8799] swallow us up also.
35 H3318 [H8804] And there came out H784 a fire H3068 from the LORD, H398 [H8799] and consumed H3967 the two hundred H2572 and fifty H376 men H7126 [H8688] that offered H7004 incense.
37 H559 [H8798] Speak H499 to Eleazar H1121 the son H175 of Aaron H3548 the priest, H7311 [H8686] that he take up H4289 the censers H996 out H8316 of the burning, H2219 [H8798] and scatter H784 thou the fire H1973 yonder; H6942 [H8804] for they are hallowed.
38 H4289 The censers H2400 of these sinners H5315 against their own souls, H6213 [H8804] let them make H7555 them broad H6341 plates H6826 for a covering H4196 of the altar: H7126 [H8689] for they offered H6440 them before H3068 the LORD, H6942 [H8799] therefore they are hallowed: H226 and they shall be a sign H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel.
39 H499 And Eleazar H3548 the priest H3947 [H8799] took H5178 the brasen H4289 censers, H8313 [H8803] which they that were burnt H7126 [H8689] had offered; H7554 [H8762] and they were made broad H6826 plates for a covering H4196 of the altar:
40 H2146 To be a memorial H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel, H834 H4616 that H376 H2114 [H8801] no stranger, H2233 who is not of the seed H175 of Aaron, H7126 [H8799] should come near H6999 [H8687] to offer H7004 incense H6440 before H3068 the LORD; H7141 that he may not be as Korah, H5712 and as his company: H3068 as the LORD H1696 [H8765] said H3027 to him by the hand H4872 of Moses.
41 H4283 But on the next day H5712 all the congregation H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel H3885 [H8735] murmured H4872 against Moses H175 and against Aaron, H559 [H8800] saying, H4191 [H8689] Ye have killed H5971 the people H3068 of the LORD.
42 H5712 And it came to pass, when the congregation H6950 [H8736] was gathered H4872 against Moses H175 and against Aaron, H6437 [H8799] that they looked H168 toward the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation: H6051 and, behold, the cloud H3680 [H8765] covered H3519 it, and the glory H3068 of the LORD H7200 [H8735] appeared.
43 H4872 And Moses H175 and Aaron H935 [H8799] came H6440 before H168 the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation.
45 H7426 [H8734] Remove H8432 from among H5712 this congregation, H3615 [H8762] that I may consume H7281 them as in a moment. H5307 [H8799] And they fell H6440 upon their faces.
46 H4872 And Moses H559 [H8799] said H175 to Aaron, H3947 [H8798] Take H4289 a censer, H5414 [H8798] and put H784 fire H6440 in it from off H4196 the altar, H7760 [H8798] and put H7004 on incense, H3212 [H8685] and go H4120 quickly H5712 to the congregation, H3722 [H8761] and make an atonement H7110 for them: for there is wrath H3318 [H8804] gone out H3068 from the LORD; H5063 the plague H2490 [H8689] is begun.
47 H175 And Aaron H3947 [H8799] took H4872 as Moses H1696 [H8765] commanded, H7323 [H8799] and ran H8432 into the midst H6951 of the congregation; H5063 and, behold, the plague H2490 [H8689] was begun H5971 among the people: H5414 [H8799] and he put H7004 on incense, H3722 [H8762] and made an atonement H5971 for the people.
48 H5975 [H8799] And he stood H4191 [H8801] between the dead H2416 and the living; H4046 and the plague H6113 [H8735] was stayed.
49 H4191 [H8801] Now they that died H4046 in the plague H702 H6240 were fourteen H505 thousand H7651 and seven H3967 hundred, H4191 [H8801] besides them that died H1697 about the matter H7141 of Korah.
