Korah son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and certain Reubenites-Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab, and On son of Peleth-became insolent
16:2

and rose up against Moses. With them were 250 Israelite men, well-known community leaders who had been appointed members of the council.
16:3
聚集攻击摩西,亚伦,说,你们擅自专权。全会众个个既是圣洁,耶和华也在他们中间,你们为什么自高,超过耶和华的会众呢?

When Moses heard this, he fell facedown.

16:8
摩西又对可拉说,利未的子孙哪,你们听我说。

16:10
耶和华又使你,和你一切弟兄利未的子孙,一同亲近他,这岂为小事,你们还要求祭司的职任吗?
He has brought you and all your fellow Levites near himself, but now you are trying to get the priesthood too.

Then Moses summoned Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab. But they said, "We will not come!
16:13
你将我们从流奶与蜜之地领上来,要在旷野杀我们,这岂为小事,你还要自立为王辖管我们吗?
Isn't it enough that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert? And now you also want to lord it over us?
16:14
并且你没有将我们领到流奶与蜜之地,也没有把田地和葡萄园给我们为业。难道你要剜这些人的眼睛吗?我们不上去。
Moreover, you haven't brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey or given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Will you gouge out the eyes of these men? No, we will not come!"
16:15
摩西就甚发怒,对耶和华说,求你不要享受他们的供物。我并没有夺过他们一匹驴,也没有害过他们一个人。
Then Moses became very angry and said to the Lord , "Do not accept their offering. I have not taken so much as a donkey from them, nor have I wronged any of them."

摩西说,我行的这一切事本不是凭我自己心意行的,乃是耶和华打发我行的,必有证据使你们知道。
Then Moses said, "This is how you will know that the Lord has sent me to do all these things and that it was not my idea:
16:29
这些人死若与世人无异,或是他们所遭的与世人相同,就不是耶和华打发我来的。
If these men die a natural death and experience only what usually happens to men, then the Lord has not sent me.

16:31
摩西刚说完了这一切话,他们脚下的地就开了口,
As soon as he finished saying all this, the ground under them split apart

The Lord said to Moses,
16:37
你吩咐祭司亚伦的儿子以利亚撒从火中捡起那些香炉来,把火撒在别处,因为那些香炉是圣的。
Tell Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest, to take the censers out of the smoldering remains and scatter the coals some distance away, for the censers are holy-
16:38
把那些犯罪,自害己命之人的香炉,叫人锤成片子,用以包坛。那些香炉本是他们在耶和华面前献过的,所以是圣的,并且可以给以色列人作记号。
the censers of the men who sinned at the cost of their lives. Hammer the censers into sheets to overlay the altar, for they were presented before the Lord and have become holy. Let them be a sign to the Israelites."

16:40
给以色列人作纪念,使亚伦后裔之外的人不得近前来在耶和华面前烧香,免得他遭可拉和他一党所遭的。这乃是照耶和华借着摩西所吩咐的。

你们离开这会众,我好在转眼之间把他们灭绝。他们二人就俯伏于地。
Get away from this assembly so I can put an end to them at once. And they fell facedown.
16:46
摩西对亚伦说,拿你的香炉,把坛上的火盛在其中,又加上香,快快带到会众那里,为他们赎罪。因为有忿怒从耶和华那里出来,瘟疫已经发作了。
Then Moses said to Aaron, "Take your censer and put incense in it, along with fire from the altar, and hurry to the assembly to make atonement for them. Wrath has come out from the Lord ; the plague has started."

亚伦回到会幕门口,到摩西那里,瘟疫已经止住了。
Then Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, for the plague had stopped.
