Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 106:16-18

_ _ All the congregation took part with Dathan, Korah, etc., and their accomplices (Numbers 16:41).

_ _ Aaron the saint — literally, “the holy one,” as consecrated priest; not a moral attribute, but one designating his office as holy to the Lord. The rebellion was followed by a double punishment: (1) of the non-Levitical rebels, the Reubenites, Dathan and Abiram, etc. (Deuteronomy 11:6; Numbers 26:10); these were swallowed up by the earth.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 106:13-33.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 106:16

The saint — So called, because he was consecrated by God for that sacred office of the priesthood, in which respect all the priests are said to be holy, Leviticus 21:6-8. Hereby he intimates, that their envy and rebellion was not only against Aaron, but against God himself.
