16 Now Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took action,2 and they rose up before Moses, [a]together with some of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, [b]chosen in the assembly, men of renown.3 They assembled together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “[c]You have gone far enough, for all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is in their midst; so why do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the Lord?”
Numbers 16:31-35New American Standard Bible (NASB)
31 As he finished speaking all these words, the ground that was under them split open;32 and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who belonged to Korah with their possessions.33 So they and all that belonged to them went down alive to [a]Sheol; and the earth closed over them, and they perished from the midst of the assembly.34 All Israel who were around them fled at their [b]outcry, for they said, “The earth may swallow us up!”35 Fire also came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who were offering the incense.
