Context Readings

Korah, Dathan, And Abiram Rebel

12 So Moses sent for Eliab's sons Dathan and Abiram, but they responded, "We're not coming. 13 Is it such an insignificant thing that you brought us out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness? Now you're trying to make yourself be a prince and rule over us, aren't you? 14 You still haven't brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Do you really think that you can make these men look the other way? We won't go up."
