Jealousy; Rebellion

I am reading through the Bible chronologically this
year. Today I was in the 16th chapter of Numbers.
Korah pulled all the leadership into sin including
many from each tribe. Here are the results:

Korah, Dathan, Abiram including their families
were swallowed into the ground beneath their feet.

Fire came "out from the Lord" and the 250 men
holding censors were burned to a crisp.

Plague broke out among the people and 14,700
people died.

Jealousy and Rebellion certainly had a price!

After that awful day, Moses went into the
Tent of Meeting, the Tabernacle, and penned
the following words, Psalm 90.

"Lord, you have been our dwelling place in
          all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or
          ever you had formed the earth and the
From everlasting to everlasting, 
Thou art God."

Moses goes on to describe the frailty of man;
the issues of his sin; the length of his life;
God's anger. And then,

"Teach us to number our days so that we may 
get a heart of wisdom"

"Have pity on your servants!"

"Satisfy us in the morning with your 
steadfast love..."

Please, read Numbers 16, Psalm 90, and then,
come back tomorrow
for the rest of the story...
