punishment of the Rebellion of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
And it came
to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words,
that the ground clave asunder that was under them:
And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and
their houses, and all the men that appertained unto
Korah, and all their goods. They, and all that appertained
to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed
upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.
And all Israel that were round about them fled at the
cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.
And there came out a fire from the Lord, and consumed the
two hundred and fifty men that offered incense. (KJV)
