Numbers 16:6-7

_ _ Take your censers, Korah, and all his company, etc. — that is, since you aspire to the priesthood, then go, perform the highest function of the office — that of offering incense; and if you are accepted well. How magnanimous the conduct of Moses, who was now as willing that God’s people should be priests, as formerly that they should be prophets (Numbers 11:29). But he warned them that they were making a perilous experiment.

Matthew Henry's Commentary
