'I will call to God, that He may send thunder and rain; and you will know and see that your wickedness is great, which you have done before God in Asking for a king.' So Samuel called to God; and God sent thunder and rain that day and all the people were in awe of God and Samuel.
1 Samuel: 11:14-12:22
korach “Korach son of Izhar”
Numbers 16:1 – 18:32
Korach, an ambitious first cousin of Moses, was angered that he was not as important as he wanted to be. His desire and envy led him to incite a rebellion by challenging Moses’ leadership and the laws subsequent to the 10 commandments (which were the only ones the people heard at Mt. Sinai). Moses answered this attack, suggesting a test: Korach and his followers enter the Tabernacle with pans filled with their incense offerings knowing that only the righteous can survive such offers. Korach and his group appeared the next morning at the Tabernacle, but the earth split open and sucked them down as a fire from heaven came down and consumed all of Korach's people.
On the lower left are the staffs of the tribes that were placed in the Tabernacle overnight; and the one from the tribe of Levi blossomed with flowers, showing that indeed they were the chosen tribe to do service in the Tabernacle.
