Why did Moshe fall on his face?

1.

Rashi: He fell on his face out of helplessness


1

See Sifsei Chachamim. Rashi: By the Eigel (Shemos 32:1), by the Mis'on'nim, Beha'aloscha, 11:2 and by the Meraglim, Bamidbar 14:13, he Davened, but when ut came to the current, fourth sin, he felt powerless, because 'How many times can one intercede with Hashem on behalf of Yisrael?' (See Rashi).

2

See Ramban (Ibid. DH 've'Hinei').

3

See Ba'al ha'Turim.

2)

Why did only Moshe fall on his face and not Aharon?

1.

Ramban: Because, due to his deep humility, Aharon conceded that Korach was right, in that he was more fitting to be Kohen Gadol than he (Aharon) was. 1

Ramban: Which explains why, although Aharon followed all Moshe's instructions, he did not utter a word for the duration of the rebellion.
