Okwewaggula kwa Koola ne Dasani ne Abiraamu
16 Lwali lumu, Koola mutabani wa Izukali, mutabani wa Kokasi, mutabani wa Leevi, ne bano abava mu Lewubeeni, Dasani ne Abiraamu batabani ba Eriyaabu, awamu ne Oni mutabani wa Peresi, bonna ne beewaggula 2 ne basituka ne boolekera Musa. Baali ne bannaabwe abasajja Abayisirayiri ebikumi bibiri mu ataano, abaali abamanyifu ennyo mu baana ba Isirayiri era nga bakiise mu Lukiiko Olukulu. 3 Ne bajjira wamu nga beekobaanye okwolekera Musa ne Alooni ne babagamba nti, “Mwekulumbaza nnyo! Ekibiina kyonna, buli omu mu kyo mutukuvu, ne Mukama Katonda ali nabo. Kale, lwaki mwekulumbaliza ku kibiina ky’abantu ba Mukama?”
4 Musa bwe yakiwulira n’avuunama wansi. 5 N’alyoka agamba Koola ne bonna abaali naye nti, “Enkya Mukama Katonda anaalondamu ababe, n’oyo omutukuvu, era anaasembeza omuntu oyo gy’ali. Oyo gw’anaalonda gw’anaasembeza gy’ali. 6 Gwe Koola n’abagoberezi bo bonna mukole bwe muti: Muddire ebyoterezo, 7 enkya mubiteekemu omuliro n’obubaane awali Mukama, oyo Mukama Katonda gw’anaalondamu, nga ye mutukuvu. Mmwe batabani ba Leevi mwekulumbazizza nnyo!”
8 Musa n’agamba Koola nti, “Muwulirize, mmwe batabani ba Leevi! 9 Mukiraba nga kitono nnyo tekibamala, Katonda wa Isirayiri okubaawulako n’abaggya ku kibiina ekinene eky’abaana ba Isirayiri n’abasembeza w’abeera okukolanga omulimu gwa Mukama mu Weema ya Mukama ey’Okukuŋŋaanirangamu, n’okuyimiriranga mu maaso g’ekibiina n’okubaweereza? 10 Mmwe ne Baleevi bannammwe Mukama Katonda yabasembeza gy’ali, kaakano mwagala n’obwakabona nabwo mubulye? 11 Noolwekyo mmwe n’abagoberezi bammwe, mwesimbye ku Mukama Katonda, era gwe mwolekedde. Kale Alooni naye ye ani, mmwe okumwemulugunyiza?”
12 Awo Musa n’atumya Dasani ne Abiraamu batabani ba Eriyaabu bayitibwe bajje. Naye ne bagamba nti, “Tetujja kujja! 13 Eky’okutuggya mu nsi ekulukuta amata n’omubisi gw’enjuki okututtira mu ddungu, kyali kitono nga tekimala? Ne kaakano oyagala okutwefuulirako omulangira otufuge? 14 Ng’ebyo bikyali awo, totuleese mu nsi ekulukuta amata n’omubisi gw’enjuki, wadde okutusikiza amasamba n’ennimiro z’emizabbibu. Abasajja bano oyagala obasibe kantuntunu ku maaso obalimberimbe? Nedda, tetujja kujja.”
Musa Asabira Abantu
15 Awo Musa n’asunguwala nnyo n’agamba Mukama Katonda nti, “Ekiweebwayo kyabwe tokikkiriza. Tewaliiwo gwe nnali ntutteko wadde akalogoyi akamu, so tewali n’omu ku bo gwe nnali mpisizza obubi.”
16 Musa n’agamba Koola nti, “Ggwe n’abo bonna abakugoberera, enkya mujje awali Mukama Katonda, ggwe nabo ne Alooni. 17 Buli musajja ajje n’ekyoterezo kye akiteekemu obubaane, ebyoterezo bijja kuwera ebikumi bibiri mu ataano, mubireete awali Mukama. Ggwe ne Alooni nammwe mujja kuleeta ebyoterezo byammwe.” 18 Awo buli musajja n’addira ekyoterezo kye n’akissaamu obubaane n’omuliro, bonna ne bayimirira ne Musa ne Alooni ku mulyango gwa Weema ya Mukama ey’Okukuŋŋaanirangamu. 19 Koola bwe yamala okukuŋŋaanya abagoberezi be abavuganya, ku mulyango gwa Weema ya Mukama ey’Okukuŋŋaanirangamu, ekitiibwa kya Mukama Katonda ne kyeraga eri ekibiina kyonna ekyali kikuŋŋaanye. 20 Mukama Katonda n’agamba Musa ne Alooni nti, 21 “Mweyawuleko muve mu kibiina kino ndyoke nkizikirize embagirawo.”
22 Naye Musa ne Alooni ne bavuunama amaaso gaabwe wansi ne bagamba nti, “Ayi Katonda, Katonda ow’emyoyo egy’abantu bonna, omuntu omu bw’ayonoona, osunguwalira ekibiina kyonna?”
23 Mukama Katonda n’agamba Musa nti, 24 “Muve okumpi n’eweema eza Koola ne Dasani ne Abiraamu.”
25 Awo Musa n’asituka n’agenda eri Dasani ne Abiraamu, n’abakulembeze ba Isirayiri ne bagenda naye nga bamugoberera. 26 N’agamba ekibiina kyonna nti, “Musembereeyo muve okumpi n’eweema z’abasajja bano abakozi b’ebibi! Temukwata ku kintu kyabwe n’ekimu, sikulwa nga mwenna muzikirizibwa olw’ebibi byabwe.” 27 Bwe batyo ne basemberayo ne bava okumpi n’eweema za Koola, ne Dasani, ne Abiraamu. Dasani ne Abiraamu baali nga bafulumye mu weema zaabwe nga bayimiridde mu miryango gyazo, nga bali ne bakazi baabwe, ne batabani baabwe, n’obwana bwabwe obuto. 28 Awo Musa n’agamba nti, “Ku kino kwe munaategeerera nga Mukama Katonda y’antumye okukola ebintu bino byonna so tekubadde kutetenkanya kwange. 29 Singa abasajja bano bafa olumbe olwa bulijjo, oba kugwibwako ebyo ebya bulijjo ebigwa ku bantu bonna, kinaaba kitegeeza nti Mukama si y’antumye. 30 Naye singa Mukama Katonda aleetawo ekintu ekiggya ddala ekitali kya bulijjo, ensi n’eyasamya akamwa kaayo n’ebamira nga balamu n’ebintu byabwe byonna, ne bagwa wansi mu gunnya oguwanvu, kale nno munaategeera ng’abasajja abo banyoomodde Mukama Katonda.”
31 Awo bwe yali nga yakamala okwogera ebigambo ebyo, ettaka bali kwe baali bayimiridde ne lyabikamu wabiri, 32 ensi n’eyasamya akamwa kaayo n’ebamira n’ebintu byabwe byonna eby’omu maka gaabwe, ne basajja ba Koola bonna n’ebintu byabwe byonna. 33 Baagwayo wansi mu gunnya nga balamu, n’ebintu byabwe byonna bye baalina; ensi n’ebabuutikira, ne basaanirawo ddala okuva mu bannaabwe. 34 Abayisirayiri bonna abaaliwo bwe baabawulira nga bakaaba ne badduka nga bwe bagamba nti, “Si kulwa nga naffe ensi etumira!”
35 Olwo omuliro ne gujja nga guva eri Mukama ne gwokera ddala abasajja ebikumi ebibiri mu ataano abaali bawaayo ekiweebwayo eky’obubaane.
36 Awo Mukama Katonda n’agamba Musa nti, 37 “Gamba Eriyazaali mutabani wa Alooni kabona aggye ebyoterezo mu muliro, kubanga bitukuvu, amanda ag’omuliro agasaasaanyize wala. 38 Ebyoterezo ebyo bya basajja abaayonoona era n’okufa ne bafa; noolwekyo biweesebwemu amasowaane gakozesebwenga ng’ebibikka ku kyoto kubanga baabiwaayo eri Mukama Katonda; noolwekyo bitukuvu. Kale binaabanga kabonero ka kijjukizo eri abaana ba Isirayiri.”
39 Bw’atyo Eriyazaali kabona n’addira ebyoterezo eby’ekikomo, ebyali biweereddwayo bali abaayokebwa, ne biweesebwamu ebibikka ku kyoto, 40 kiyambe abaana ba Isirayiri okujjukiranga nti omuntu atali kabona, atava mu lulyo lwa Alooni, taasemberenga kumpi na kyoto okunyookeza obubaane eri Mukama, si kulwa ng’afuuka nga Koola n’ekibiina kye. Eriyazaali bw’atyo bwe yabikola byonna ng’ekiragiro kya Mukama Katonda bwe kyali kye yayisa mu Musa.
Kawumpuli mu Bantu
41 Naye enkeera ekibiina kyonna eby’abaana ba Isirayiri ne beemulugunyiza Musa ne Alooni, nga bagamba nti, “Musse abantu ba Mukama Katonda.” 42 Kyokka ekibiina ky’abantu bwe baakuŋŋaana okusoomooza Musa ne Alooni ne bakyuka okwolekera Eweema ya Mukama ey’Okukuŋŋaanirangamu, amangwago ekire ne kigibikka n’ekitiibwa kya Mukama Katonda ne kyeyoleka. 43 Musa ne Alooni ne balaga ku mulyango gwa Weema ya Mukama ey’Okukuŋŋaanirangamu, 44 Mukama n’agamba Musa nti, 45 “Muve mu bantu bano ndyoke mbazikirize embagirawo.” Ne bavuunama wansi.
46 Awo Musa n’agamba Alooni nti, “Ddira ekyoterezo kyo okisseemu obubaane, n’omuliro ng’oguggya mu kyoto kya Mukama, oyanguwe ogende mu kibiina obatangiririre. Kubanga obusungu bubuubuuse okuva eri Mukama Katonda era kawumpuli atandise.” 47 Alooni n’akola nga Musa bwe yamulagira, n’adduka n’agenda wakati mu kibiina. Yasanga kawumpuli yatandise dda mu bantu, naye Alooni n’awaayo eri Mukama Katonda obubaane okubatangiririra; 48 n’ayimirira wakati w’abafu n’abalamu, kawumpuli n’aziyizibwa. 49 Bwe kityo abantu abaafa kawumpuli baawera omutwalo gumu mu enkumi nnya mu lusanvu, nga bali abaafa olw’emitawaana gya Koola tobataddeeko. 50 Alooni n’akomawo eri Musa mu mulyango gwa Weema ya Mukama ey’Okukuŋŋaanirangamu, nga kawumpuli amaze okuziyizibwa.
Numbers 16 New International Version (NIV)
Korah, Dathan and Abiram
16 Korah son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and certain Reubenites—Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab, and On son of Peleth—became insolent[a] 2 and rose up against Moses. With them were 250 Israelite men, well-known community leaders who had been appointed members of the council. 3 They came as a group to oppose Moses and Aaron and said to them, “You have gone too far! The whole community is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is with them. Why then do you set yourselves above the Lord’s assembly?”
4 When Moses heard this, he fell facedown. 5 Then he said to Korah and all his followers: “In the morning the Lord will show who belongs to him and who is holy, and he will have that person come near him. The man he chooses he will cause to come near him. 6 You, Korah, and all your followers are to do this: Take censers 7 and tomorrow put burning coals and incense in them before the Lord. The man the Lord chooses will be the one who is holy. You Levites have gone too far!”
8 Moses also said to Korah, “Now listen, you Levites! 9 Isn’t it enough for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the rest of the Israelite community and brought you near himself to do the work at the Lord’s tabernacle and to stand before the community and minister to them? 10 He has brought you and all your fellow Levites near himself, but now you are trying to get the priesthood too. 11 It is against the Lord that you and all your followers have banded together. Who is Aaron that you should grumble against him?”
12 Then Moses summoned Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab. But they said, “We will not come! 13 Isn’t it enough that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the wilderness? And now you also want to lord it over us! 14 Moreover, you haven’t brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey or given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Do you want to treat these men like slaves[b]? No, we will not come!”
15 Then Moses became very angry and said to the Lord, “Do not accept their offering. I have not taken so much as a donkey from them, nor have I wronged any of them.”
16 Moses said to Korah, “You and all your followers are to appear before the Lord tomorrow—you and they and Aaron. 17 Each man is to take his censer and put incense in it—250 censers in all—and present it before the Lord. You and Aaron are to present your censers also.” 18 So each of them took his censer, put burning coals and incense in it, and stood with Moses and Aaron at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 19 When Korah had gathered all his followers in opposition to them at the entrance to the tent of meeting, the glory of the Lord appeared to the entire assembly. 20 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, 21 “Separate yourselves from this assembly so I can put an end to them at once.”
22 But Moses and Aaron fell facedown and cried out, “O God, the God who gives breath to all living things, will you be angry with the entire assembly when only one man sins?”
23 Then the Lord said to Moses, 24 “Say to the assembly, ‘Move away from the tents of Korah, Dathan and Abiram.’”
25 Moses got up and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. 26 He warned the assembly, “Move back from the tents of these wicked men! Do not touch anything belonging to them, or you will be swept away because of all their sins.” 27 So they moved away from the tents of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Dathan and Abiram had come out and were standing with their wives, children and little ones at the entrances to their tents.
28 Then Moses said, “This is how you will know that the Lord has sent me to do all these things and that it was not my idea: 29 If these men die a natural death and suffer the fate of all mankind, then the Lord has not sent me. 30 But if the Lord brings about something totally new, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them, with everything that belongs to them, and they go down alive into the realm of the dead, then you will know that these men have treated the Lord with contempt.”
31 As soon as he finished saying all this, the ground under them split apart 32 and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them and their households, and all those associated with Korah, together with their possessions. 33 They went down alive into the realm of the dead, with everything they owned; the earth closed over them, and they perished and were gone from the community. 34 At their cries, all the Israelites around them fled, shouting, “The earth is going to swallow us too!”
35 And fire came out from the Lord and consumed the 250 men who were offering the incense.
36 The Lord said to Moses, 37 “Tell Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest, to remove the censers from the charred remains and scatter the coals some distance away, for the censers are holy— 38 the censers of the men who sinned at the cost of their lives. Hammer the censers into sheets to overlay the altar, for they were presented before the Lord and have become holy. Let them be a sign to the Israelites.”
39 So Eleazar the priest collected the bronze censers brought by those who had been burned to death, and he had them hammered out to overlay the altar, 40 as the Lord directed him through Moses. This was to remind the Israelites that no one except a descendant of Aaron should come to burn incense before the Lord, or he would become like Korah and his followers.
41 The next day the whole Israelite community grumbled against Moses and Aaron. “You have killed the Lord’s people,” they said.
42 But when the assembly gathered in opposition to Moses and Aaron and turned toward the tent of meeting, suddenly the cloud covered it and the glory of the Lord appeared. 43 Then Moses and Aaron went to the front of the tent of meeting, 44 and the Lord said to Moses, 45 “Get away from this assembly so I can put an end to them at once.” And they fell facedown.
46 Then Moses said to Aaron, “Take your censer and put incense in it, along with burning coals from the altar, and hurry to the assembly to make atonement for them. Wrath has come out from the Lord; the plague has started.” 47 So Aaron did as Moses said, and ran into the midst of the assembly. The plague had already started among the people, but Aaron offered the incense and made atonement for them. 48 He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped. 49 But 14,700 people died from the plague, in addition to those who had died because of Korah. 50 Then Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance to the tent of meeting, for the plague had stopped.[c]
