Korah, Dathan, and Abiram rebelled against Moses and Aaron, and so against
the Lord. The Lord had placed special responsibilities upon Moses and Aaron in
selecting them for the priesthood and in conferring upon them the dignity and
authority of leading the congregation of Israel. Moses was afflicted by the
continual rebellion of the Hebrews. As God's appointed, visible leader, he had
been connected with the Israelites through seasons of peril, and had borne with
their discontent, their jealousies, and their murmurings, without retaliation
and without seeking to be released from his trying position.
When the Hebrews were brought into scenes of danger, or where their appetite
was restricted, instead of trusting in God, who had done wondrous things for
them, they murmured against Moses. The Son of God, although invisible to the
congregation, was the leader of the Israelites. His presence went before them
and conducted all their travels, while Moses was their visible leader, receiving
his directions from the Angel, who was Christ.
