Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:1 - Now Korach, the son of Yitzhar, the son of Kehat, the son of Levi, with Datan and Aviram, the sons of Eli'av, and On, the son of Pelet, sons of Re'uven, took men:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:2 - and they rose up before Moshe, with certain of the children of Yisra'el, two hundred fifty princes of the congregation, called to the assembly, men of renown;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:3 - and they assembled themselves together against Moshe and against Aharon, and said to them, You take too much on you, seeing all the congregation are holy, everyone of them, and the LORD is among them: why then lift yourselves up above the assembly of the LORD?

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 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?
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:11 - Therefore you and all your company are gathered together against the LORD: and Aharon, what is he who you murmur against him?
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:12 - Moshe sent to call Datan and Aviram, the sons of Eli'av; and they said, We won't come up:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:13 - is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, but you must needs make yourself also a prince over us?
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 16:14 - Moreover you haven't brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: will you put out the eyes of these men? we won't come up.
