Numbers 16:31-35

Context

16:31 When he had finished 1  speaking 2  all these words, the ground that was under them split open, 16:32 and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them, along with their households, and all Korah’s men, and all their goods. 16:33 They and all that they had went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed over them. So they perished from among the community. 16:34 All the Israelites 3  who were around them fled at their cry, 4  for they said, “What if 5  the earth swallows us too?” 16:35 Then a fire 6  went out from the Lord and devoured the 250 men who offered incense.

Numbers 16:49

Context
16:49 Now 14,700 people died in the plague, in addition to those who died in the event with Korah.

1 tn The initial temporal clause is standard: It begins with the temporal indicator “and it was,” followed here by the Piel infinitive construct with the preposition and the subjective genitive suffix. “And it happened when he finished.”

2 tn The infinitive construct with the preposition lamed (ל) functions here as the direct object of the preceding infinitive. It tells what he finished.

3 tn Heb “all Israel.”

4 tn Heb “voice.”

5 tn Heb “lest.”

6 tn For a discussion of the fire of the Lord, see J. C. H. Laughlin, “The Strange Fire of Nadab and Abihu,” JBL 95 (1976): 559-65.
