The plague was undoubtedly of a supernatural character, and cannot be considered as a pestilence or other natural visitation. Beside them that died about the matter of Korah. These were

(1) the two hundred and fifty men who offered incense,

(2) Dathan and Abiram, and their families,

(3) probably Korah himself, . . .
