Bible Names H-M: Korah


Korah in Easton's Bible Dictionary ice, hail. (1.) The third son of Esau, by Aholibamah (Gen. 36:14; 1 Chr. 1:35). (2.) A Levite, the son of Izhar, the brother of Amram, the father of Moses and Aaron (Ex. 6:21). The institution of the Aaronic priesthood and the Levitical service at Sinai was a great religious revolution. The old priesthood of the heads of families passed away. This gave rise to murmurings and discontent, while the Israelites were encamped at Kadesh for the first time, which came to a head in a rebellion against Moses and Aaron, headed by Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. Two hundred and fifty princes, "men of renown" i.e., well-known men from among the other tribes, joined this conspiracy. The whole company demanded of Moses and Aaron that the old state of things should be restored, alleging that "they took too much upon them" (Num. 16:1-3). On the morning after the outbreak, Korah and his associates presented themselves at the door of the tabernacle, and "took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon." But immediately "fire from the Lord" burst forth and destroyed them all (Num. 16:35). Dathan and Abiram "came out and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children," and it came to pass "that the ground clave asunder that was under them; and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up." A plague thereafter began among the people who sympathized in the rebellion, and was only stayed by Aaron's appearing between the living and the dead, and making "an atonement for the people" (16:47). The descendants of the sons of Korah who did not participate in the rebellion afterwards rose to eminence in the Levitical service.

Korah in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. Esau's son, by Aholibamah (Genesis 36:5; Genesis 36:14; Genesis 36:18). A duke of Edom, born in Canaan before Esau migrated to Mount Seir. 2. Sprung from Eliphaz (Genesis 36:16), but probably it is a copyist's error from Genesis 36:18. One manuscript of the Samaritan Pentateuch omits it. 3. A son of Hebron, descended from Judah (1 Chronicles 2:43). 4. Son (or, descendant) of Izhar, son of Kohath, son of Levi. Ringleader of the rebellion against Moses and Aaron (Numbers 16; Numbers 26:9-11); the one solitary anecdote recorded of the 38 years' wandering, uncircumcision, and shame, Not content with his honourable post as a Levite "minister" to the sanctuary, Korah "sought the priesthood also." Associated with him in the rebellion Dathan, Abiram, and On (the last is not mentioned subsequently), sprung from Reuben, who sought to regain the forfeited primogeniture and the primacy of their own tribe among Israel's tribes (1 Chronicles 5:1). The punishment answered to the Reubenites' sin, their pride was punished by "Reuben's men being made few," so that Moses prayed "let Reuben live and not die," i.e. be saved from extinction (Deuteronomy 33:6)...

Korah in Smiths Bible Dictionary (baldness). 1. Third son of Esau by Aholibamah. Ge 36:5,14,18; 1Ch 1:35 He was born in Canaan before Esau migrated to Mount Seir, Ge 36:5-9 and was one of the "dukes" of Edom. (B.C. 1790.) 2. Another Edomitish "duke" of this name, sprung from Eliphaz, Esau's son of Adah. Ge 36:16 3. One of the "sons of Hebron," in 1Ch 2:43 4. Son of Izhar the son of Kohath the son of Levi. He was leader of the famous rebellion against his cousins Moses and Aaron in the wilderness, for which he paid the penalty of perishing with his followers by an earthquake and flames of fire. Nu 16; 26:9-11 The particular grievance which rankled in the mind of Korah and his company was their exclusion from the office of the priesthood, and their being confined --those among them who were Levites-- to the inferior service of the tabernacle. Korah's position as leader in this rebellion was evidently the result of his personal character, which was that of a bold, haughty and ambitious man. (B.C. 1490.) In the New Testament Jude 1:11 Korah is coupled with Cain and Balaam.

Korah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ko'-ra, (~qorach], "baldness," possibly; Kore): (1) One of the 3 sons of Oholibamah, Esau's Hivite wife. The account says that the 3 were born in Canaan before Esau withdrew to the Seir mountain country. They are mentioned 3 times in the brief account from 3 points of view (Gen 36:5,14,18;, 1 Ch 1:35), the 3rd mention being in the list of "chiefs." (2) One of the sons of Eliphaz, the son of Adah, Esau's Hittite wife (Gen 36:16). He is mentioned as one of the Edomite "chiefs." If one has the habit, finding a statement anywhere, of thinking that the statement ought to be changed into something else, he will be interested in the attempts to identify these Edomite Korahs with Korah (3). (3) A son of Hebron (1 Ch 2:43), the son of Mareshah, mentioned in the Caleb group of families in Judah. (4) The son of Izhar the son of Kohath the son of Levi (Ex 6:16 ff; Nu 16:1; 1 Ch 6:18,31-38), a younger contemporary of Moses. There may have been generations, omitted in the record, between Izhar and Korah; that is a natural way of accounting for Amminadab (1 Ch 6:22-30)...

Korah in Wikipedia According to Genesis 36:5 , Korah was the son of Esau and Aholibamah, and had two brothers, "Jeush, and Jaalam". Genesis 36:14 has Korah's mother, Aholibamah being descended from Anah, the daughter of Zibeon, making Zibeon, Korah's maternal grandfather. The same verses, repeats Genesis 36:5 and names his two brothers again. Esau had multiple wives, and Korah is also listed as a grandson of Esau through Eliphaz, causing some confusion. Esau and his wife Adah, bore Eliphaz. Genesis 36:16 states that Eliphaz bore a number of sons (called here, dukes) that came from his son Eliphaz, and one of them is Duke Korah. It is not unreasonable that Esau had a son and a grandson named Korah. Korah fought against Israel...
