Korah

    Korah

    The leader of a revolt against Moses and Aaron (Num. 16), who complained that the leaders were keeping the priesthood to themselves. The narrative may conceal a historical probability that there was a dispute about priestly prerogatives—who had the right to offer incense before the Lord? According to the narrative, those who objected to the Levitical privileges were swallowed up alive (Dathan and Abiram, Deut. 11: 6), though the sons of Korah were spared when he died (Num. 26: 11).
