Numbers 16-18:32 (New King James Version)
Rebellion Against Moses and AaronKorah, and 250 others decided Moses had too much power and they wanted some of it. Be careful when you want to usurp the authority of others. If God has them there for a specific purpose, you will be on very dangerous ground. You better be on the side of Moses.
The earth opened up and swallowed them, their wives, children and possessions!
Complaints of the PeopleAghhhhh, what are they thinking! So the Israelites complained that God had killed their people. God tells Moses to separate himself from them. Moses intercedes and tells Aaron to go into the throng with a censor. By the time they do this, the plague has already killed 14,700 people. Don't mess with God.
Aaron's rod is chosen.
