(27) And Dathan and Abiram came out . . . --No mention is made of the position of Korah at this time, neither is any mention made of his sons, who, as we learn from Numbers 26:11, "died not" when the company of Korah died. His descendants are mentioned in 1Chronicles 6:22-38, and mention is made of "the sons of Korah" in the titles of eleven of the Psalms. Samuel the prophet and Heman the singer were of this family (1Chronicles 6:22; 1Chronicles 6:33).

Verse 27. - And Dathan and Abiram... stood in the door of their tents. To see what Moses would do. Nothing is said of Korah.
