Commentary
Matthew Henry Commentary
16:12-15 Moses summoned Dathan and Abiram to bring their complaints; but they would not obey. They bring very false charges against Moses. Those often fall under the heaviest censures, who in truth deserve the highest praise. Moses, though the meekest man, yet, finding God reproached in him, was very wroth; he could not bear to see the people ruining themselves. He appeals to God as to his own integrity. He bade them appear with Aaron next morning, at the time of offering the morning incense. Korah undertook thus to appear. Proud ambitious men, while projecting their own advancement, often hurry on their own shameful fall.

14"Indeed, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Would you put out the eyes of these men?

I have not. Though Moses was their ruler, under God, yet, so far from oppressing them, he had not imposed the smallest tax, nor taken, as a present, so much as an ass from one of them. The common present that is now made to the great, in these countries, is a horse; but there is reason to believe, that an ass might formerly have answered the same purpose. If it is a visit of ceremony from a barshaw, says Dr. Russell, or other person in power, a fine horse, sometimes with furniture, or some such valuable present, it made to him at his departure. As asses were esteemed no dishonourable beasts for the saddle, Sr. J. Chardin, in his MS., supposes, that when Samuel disclaimed having taken the ass of any one, he is to be understood of not having taken any ass for his riding. In the same light, he considers this similar declaration of Moses. His reason is asses being then esteemed very honourable creatures for riding on as they are at this very time in Persia, being rode with saddles.
