“The sons of Eliab were Nemuel, Dathan, and Abiram. (It was Dathan and Abiram, chosen by the community, who fought against Moses and Aaron; they and Korah’s followers fought against the Lord. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed them with Korah, when his followers died and the fire consumed 250 men. They serve as a warning sign. The sons of Korah, however, did not die.)”

Numbers 26:9-11 HCSB


This chapter is another census, but as I read it, I come across this passage, and am reminded that while the Lord may punish the wicked, and even bring that wrath to the family of the wicked, He is still just and righteous. I am assuming Korah’s sons were not involved in their father’s rebellion.
