Bible Commentary for Numbers 16:10

Wesley's Notes for Numbers 16:10


16:8 Ye sons of Levi - They were of his own tribe, nay, they were of God's tribe. It was therefore the worse in them thus to mutiny against God and against him.

16:9 To minister to them - So they were the servants both of God and of the church, which was an high dignity, though not sufficient for their ambitious minds.

16:11 Against the Lord - Whose chosen servant Aaron is. You strike at God through Aaron's sides.

16:12 Dathan and Abiram - To treat with them and give them, as he had done Korah and his company, a timely admonition. Come up - To Moses's tabernacle, whither the people used to go up for judgment. Men are said in scripture phrase to go up to places of judgment.
