Not illustrated. 1869 edition. Excerpt: ...of Uzziel, which had been preferred by Moses above the elder. See above, iii. 27.30. Perhaps they imagined that Aaron had been elevated by Moses to the Priesthood because he was his brother. This rebellion of Korah was a severer trial of the faith and courage of Moses, because Korah was his own cousin. Izhar and Am ram were brothers (Exod. vi. 18. 1 Chron. vi. 2).--and Dathan and Abiram... sons of Reuben Jacob's firstborn. Those descendants of Reuben made common cause with Korah the son of Izhar; and they were probably envious of the children of Judah, who had been preferred above his elder brother Reuben, and to whom the chief place hod been given by Moses, in the encampments of Israel. See ii. 3; x. 14. Therefore the language of these Renbenites to Moses is, " Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us? " (c. 13.) They may also have supposed that the Priesthood belonged to them, as the descendants of the firstborn (Theodoret, Qu. 32). The Rcubenites imagined that they had a common grievance with Korah and his family, and therefore conspired together with them against Moses. The Rcubenites encamped on the south side of the tabernacle (ii. 10), next to Korah and the Kohathites (iii. 29); and so, being neighbours, they had frequent occasions of communication and of taking secret counsel together, and associated themselves with them in evil; as some of the Jewish expositors have observed, e. g., Jarchi, who says, " Woe therefore be to the wicked, and woe to his neighbour also!" (Cp. Graces on the Pent. p. 68, Part i. Lect. iv.; and Blunt, Coincidences, p. 80.)--took men The word men is not more
