Numbers 16

YLT 1 And Korah, son of Izhar, son of Kohath, son of Levi, taketh both Dathan and Abiram sons of Eliab, and On son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, NIV 1 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 YLT 2 and they rise up before Moses, with men of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty, princes of the company, called of the convention, men of name, NIV 2 and rose up against Moses. With them were 250 Israelite men, well-known community leaders who had been appointed members of the council. YLT 3 and they are assembled against Moses and against Aaron, and say unto them, `Enough of you! for all the company -- all of them [are] holy, and in their midst [is] Jehovah; and wherefore do ye lift yourselves up above the assembly of Jehovah?' NIV 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?" YLT 4 And Moses heareth, and falleth on his face, NIV 4 When Moses heard this, he fell facedown. YLT 5 and he speaketh unto Korah, and unto all his company, saying, `Morning! -- and Jehovah is knowing those who are his, and him who is holy, and hath brought near unto Him; even him whom He doth fix on He bringeth near unto Him. NIV 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. YLT 6 This do: take to yourselves censers, Korah, and all his company, NIV 6 You, Korah, and all your followers are to do this: Take censers YLT 7 and put in them fire, and put on them perfume, before Jehovah to-morrow, and it hath been, the man whom Jehovah chooseth, he [is] the holy one; -- enough of you, sons of Levi.' NIV 7 and tomorrow put fire 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!" YLT 8 And Moses saith unto Korah, `Hear ye, I pray you, sons of Levi; NIV 8 Moses also said to Korah, "Now listen, you Levites! YLT 9 is it little to you that the God of Israel hath separated you from the company of Israel to bring you near unto Himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of Jehovah, and to stand before the company to serve them? -- NIV 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? YLT 10 yea, He doth bring thee near, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee -- and ye have sought also the priesthood! NIV 10 He has brought you and all your fellow Levites near himself, but now you are trying to get the priesthood too. YLT 11 Therefore, thou and all thy company who are met [are] against Jehovah; and Aaron, what [is] he, that ye murmur against him?' NIV 11 It is against the LORD that you and all your followers have banded together. Who is Aaron that you should grumble against him?" YLT 12 And Moses sendeth to call for Dathan and for Abiram sons of Eliab, and they say, `We do not come up; NIV 12 Then Moses summoned Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab. But they said, "We will not come! YLT 13 is it little that thou hast brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to put us to death in a wilderness that thou also certainly makest thyself prince over us? NIV 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 desert? And now you also want to lord it over us? YLT 14 Yea, unto a land flowing with milk and honey thou hast not brought us in, nor dost thou give to us an inheritance of field and vineyard; the eyes of these men dost thou pick out? we do not come up.' NIV 14 Moreover, you haven't brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey or given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Will you gouge out the eyes of these men? No, we will not come!" YLT 15 And it is very displeasing to Moses, and he saith unto Jehovah, `Turn not Thou unto their present; not one ass from them have I taken, nor have I afflicted one of them.' NIV 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." YLT 16 And Moses saith unto Korah, `Thou and all thy company, be ye before Jehovah, thou, and they, and Aaron, to-morrow; NIV 16 Moses said to Korah, "You and all your followers are to appear before the LORD tomorrow--you and they and Aaron. YLT 17 and take ye each his censer, and ye have put on them perfume, and brought near before Jehovah, each his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; and thou and Aaron, each his censer.' NIV 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." YLT 18 And they take each his censer, and put on them fire, and lay on them perfume, and they stand at the opening of the tent of meeting, with Moses and Aaron. NIV 18 So each man took his censer, put fire and incense in it, and stood with Moses and Aaron at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. YLT 19 And Korah assembleth against them all the company unto the opening of the tent of meeting, and the honour of Jehovah is seen by all the company. NIV 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. YLT 20 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, NIV 20 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, YLT 21 `Be ye separated from the midst of this company, and I consume them in a moment;' NIV 21 "Separate yourselves from this assembly so I can put an end to them at once." YLT 22 and they fall on their faces, and say, `God, God of the spirits of all flesh -- the one man sinneth, and against all the company Thou art wroth!' NIV 22 But Moses and Aaron fell facedown and cried out, "O God, God of the spirits of all mankind, will you be angry with the entire assembly when only one man sins?" YLT 23 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, NIV 23 Then the LORD said to Moses, YLT 24 `Speak unto the company, saying, Go ye up from round about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.' NIV 24 "Say to the assembly, 'Move away from the tents of Korah, Dathan and Abiram.' " YLT 25 And Moses riseth, and goeth unto Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel go after him, NIV 25 Moses got up and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. YLT 26 and he speaketh unto the company, saying, `Turn aside, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and come not against anything that they have, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.' NIV 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." YLT 27 And they go up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan and Abiram, from round about, and Dathan, and Abiram have come out, standing at the opening of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their infants. NIV 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. YLT 28 And Moses saith, `By this ye do know that Jehovah hath sent me to do all these works, that [they are] not from my own heart; NIV 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: YLT 29 if according to the death of all men these die -- or the charge of all men is charged upon them -- Jehovah hath not sent me; NIV 29 If these men die a natural death and experience only what usually happens to men, then the LORD has not sent me. YLT 30 and if a strange thing Jehovah do, and the ground hath opened her mouth and swallowed them, and all that they have, and they have gone down alive to Sheol -- then ye have known that these men have despised Jehovah.' NIV 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 grave, then you will know that these men have treated the LORD with contempt." YLT 31 And it cometh to pass at his finishing speaking all these words, that the ground which [is] under them cleaveth, NIV 31 As soon as he finished saying all this, the ground under them split apart YLT 32 and the earth openeth her mouth, and swalloweth them, and their houses, and all the men who [are] for Korah, and all the goods, NIV 32 and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them, with their households and all Korah's men and all their possessions. YLT 33 and they go down, they, and all that they have, alive to Sheol, and the earth closeth over them, and they perish from the midst of the assembly; NIV 33 They went down alive into the grave, with everything they owned; the earth closed over them, and they perished and were gone from the community. YLT 34 and all Israel who [are] round about them have fled at their voice, for they said, `Lest the earth swallow us;' NIV 34 At their cries, all the Israelites around them fled, shouting, "The earth is going to swallow us too!" YLT 35 and fire hath come out from Jehovah, and consumeth the two hundred and fifty men bringing near the perfume. NIV 35 And fire came out from the LORD and consumed the 250 men who were offering the incense. YLT 36 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, NIV 36 The LORD said to Moses, YLT 37 `Say unto Eleazar son of Aaron the priest, and he lifteth up the censers from the midst of the burning, and the fire scatter thou yonder, for they have been hallowed, NIV 37 "Tell Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest, to take the censers out of the smoldering remains and scatter the coals some distance away, for the censers are holy-- YLT 38 [even] the censers of these sinners against their own souls; and they have made them spread-out plates, a covering for the altar, for they have brought them near before Jehovah, and they are hallowed; and they are become a sign to the sons of Israel.' NIV 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." YLT 39 And Eleazar the priest taketh the brazen censers which they who are burnt had brought near, and they spread them out, a covering for the altar -- NIV 39 So Eleazar the priest collected the bronze censers brought by those who had been burned up, and he had them hammered out to overlay the altar, YLT 40 a memorial to the sons of Israel, so that a stranger who is not of the seed of Aaron doth not draw near to make a perfume before Jehovah, and is not as Korah, and as his company, -- as Jehovah hath spoken by the hand of Moses to him. NIV 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. YLT 41 And all the company of the sons of Israel murmur, on the morrow, against Moses and against Aaron, saying, `Ye -- ye have put to death the people of Jehovah.' NIV 41 The next day the whole Israelite community grumbled against Moses and Aaron. "You have killed the LORD's people," they said. YLT 42 And it cometh to pass, in the company being assembled against Moses and against Aaron, that they turn towards the tent of meeting, and lo, the cloud hath covered it, and the honour of Jehovah is seen; NIV 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. YLT 43 and Moses cometh -- Aaron also -- unto the front of the tent of meeting. NIV 43 Then Moses and Aaron went to the front of the Tent of Meeting, YLT 44 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, NIV 44 and the LORD said to Moses, YLT 45 `Get you up from the midst of this company, and I consume them in a moment;' and they fall on their faces, NIV 45 "Get away from this assembly so I can put an end to them at once." And they fell facedown. YLT 46 and Moses saith unto Aaron, `Take the censer, and put on it fire from off the altar, and place perfume, and go, hasten unto the company, and make atonement for them, for the wrath hath gone out from the presence of Jehovah -- the plague hath begun.' NIV 46 Then Moses said to Aaron, "Take your censer and put incense in it, along with fire from the altar, and hurry to the assembly to make atonement for them. Wrath has come out from the LORD; the plague has started." YLT 47 And Aaron taketh as Moses hath spoken, and runneth unto the midst of the assembly, and lo, the plague hath begun among the people; and he giveth the perfume, and maketh atonement for the people, NIV 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. YLT 48 and standeth between the dead and the living, and the plague is restrained; NIV 48 He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped. YLT 49 and those who die by the plague are fourteen thousand and seven hundred, apart from those who die for the matter of Korah; NIV 49 But 14,700 people died from the plague, in addition to those who had died because of Korah. YLT 50 and Aaron turneth back unto Moses, unto the opening of the tent of meeting, and the plague hath been restrained. NIV 50 Then Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, for the plague had stopped.
