Korah, Dathan, and Abiram were priests that amassed power to overthrow Moses and Arron from their oppointed theocratic leadership. Moses tried to speak with them to settle their differences, but to no avail. Moses told the people to separate themselves from Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. The ground that Korah, Dathan, and Abiram stood on crumbled underneath them, and they were swallowed up by the earth.
