Why does the Pasuk not mention Korach and his band of followers, who were burned by a fire that came out from before Hashem?


Ramban: Because any Zar who transgresses the Lav of burning Ketores is subject 1 to punishment. 2


Ramban: In which case it would not have been confined to the sins of the desert.


Ramban: See Bamidbar 17:5. Indeed, King Uziyah performed the same sin and was punished - See Melachim 2, 2:19 (Even though he was punished with Tzara'as, and not burning. [Refer to Bamidbar, 17:5:2:2]).


What are the implications of "be'Kerev Kol Yisrael"?


Rashi (citing R; Yehudah): It implies that, wherever a member of Dasan and Aviram's family fled to, the ground opened and swallowed him up. 1


Rashi (citing R. Nechemyah): The land turned into a slope like a funnel, and , wherever a member of Dasan and Aviram's family fled to, they rolled down the slope into the central crater.


Rashi: R. Nechmyah queries this however, since the Torah wrote in Bamidbar 16:32 "Vatiftach ha'Aretz es Piha" (in the singular) indicating that there was only one crater, not many craters


What is the definition of "Kol ha'Yekum asher be'Ragleihem"?


Rashi: It refers to all their money (property). 1


Rashi: Because property places a man on his feet.
