Parshat Korach, 5773/2013 thoughts

Basics here.

It appears to me that Korach himself died at the Ohel Moel/Tent of Meeting, so why doesn't the text say that Datan and Aviram and their followers were the ones who were swallowed up in the earthquake?

יא  וְזֶה-לְּךָ תְּרוּמַת מַתָּנָם, לְכָל-תְּנוּפֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל--לְךָ נְתַתִּים וּלְבָנֶיךָ וְלִבְנֹתֶיךָ אִתְּךָ, לְחָק-עוֹלָם:  כָּל-טָהוֹר בְּבֵיתְךָ, יֹאכַל אֹתוֹ. 11 And this is thine: the heave-offering of their gift, even all the wave-offerings of the children of Israel; I have given them unto thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, as a due for ever; every one that is clean in thy house may eat thereof.

And what were the members of the Kohen's/Priest's family supposed to eat when they weren't "clean"?

Links to my previous Korach posts are here.

Conservadox derives another interesting lesson from Parshat Korach.

Check out פרק כ"ו/Chapter 26 v. 9-10 - looks to me like Korach went down into the ground with them.
