Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 27:3

_ _ Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not ... in the company of ... Korah — This declaration might be necessary because his death might have occurred about the time of that rebellion; and especially because, as the children of these conspirators were involved along with their fathers in the awful punishment, their plea appeared the more proper and forcible that their father did not die for any cause that doomed his family to lose their lives or their inheritance.

_ _ died in his own sin — that is, by the common law of mortality to which men, through sin, are subject.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 27:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 27:3

In his own sin — For his own personal sins. It was a truth, and that believed by the Jews that death was a punishment for mens own sins.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(a) According as all men die, for as much as they are sinners.
