Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:3 - and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and Jehovah is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the assembly of Jehovah?

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:12 - And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; and they said, We will not come up:

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:13 - is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, but thou must needs make thyself also a prince over us?

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:14 - Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.
