Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 26:10

_ _ the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah — rather, “the things of Korah.” (See on Numbers 16:35; compare Psalms 106:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 26:10

With Korah — According to this translation Korah was not consumed by fire with his two hundred and fifty men, but swallowed up by the earth. But others rather think he was devoured by the fire, and render these words, and the things of Korah, or belonging to Korah, namely, his tent and goods, and family, children excepted, as here follows. A sign — God made them a monument or example, to warn others not to rebel against God, or magistracy, nor to usurp the priestly office.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Numbers 26:10

And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that company died, what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men: and they (d) became a sign.

(d) That is, as an example that others should not complain and rebel against God's ministers.
