So he put on the incense and made atonement for the people.48 He took his stand between the dead and the living, so that the plague was checked.49 But those who died by the plague were 14,700, besides those who died on account of Korah.50 Then Aaron returned to Moses at the doorway of the tent of meeting, for the plague had been checked.
