Korahites, Sons of Korah

Hebrew - Korahite, Korah, Korahites

A Levite, who rebelled against Moses and Aaron, and so against Jehovah. He was a cousin of Moses; for their fathers Izhar and Amram were brothers, Exodus 6:16-21. He was jealous of the civil authority and priestly dignity conferred by God upon Moses and Aaron, his own cousins, while he was simply a Levite; and to obtain a part at least of their power for himself, he stirred up a factious spirit in the people. Too much, alas, of what may seem to be zeal for the honor of God, has its true character displayed in the pride and ambition of this rebellious Levite. The two hundred and fifty Levites whom he had enticed to join him were destroyed by fire from the Lord; while Korah, Dathan, and Abiram were swallowed up by the miraculous opening of the earth, Numbers 26:11; and the Korahites or "sons of Korah," were a celebrated family of singers and poets in the time of David, 1 Chronicles 9:19 26:1. To them are inscribed several Psalms, Psalms 42:1-11 44:1-26 49:1-20 84:1-85:13 87:1-88:18.
