Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 16:5-11

_ _ he spake unto Korah and unto all his company — They were first addressed, not only because they were a party headed by his own cousin and Moses might hope to have more influence in that quarter, but because they were stationed near the tabernacle; and especially because an expostulation was the more weighty coming from him who was a Levite himself, and who was excluded along with his family from the priesthood. But to bring the matter to an issue, he proposed a test which would afford a decisive evidence of the divine appointment.

_ _ Even to-morrow — literally, “in the morning,” the usual time of meeting in the East for the settlement of public affairs.

_ _ the Lord will show who are his, ... even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him — that is, will bear attestation to his ministry by some visible or miraculous token of His approval.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 16:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 16:5

To — morrow — Heb. In the morning, the time appointed by men for administering justice, and chosen by God for that work. Some time is allowed, partly that Korah and his company might prepare themselves and their censers, and partly to give them space for consideration and repentance. He will cause him — He will by some evident token declare his approbation of him and his ministry.
