Other Stories of Moses

Numbers further accounts for the wanderings of the Israelites under the leadership of Moses, with details that are not found in Exodus.  For example,  did you remember that at one point in the desert the people began to stone Moses and Aaron?  Numbers 16:1-5; 16-21; 28-35 tells us that Korah rebelled against Moses, and was punished for his rebellion the earth opens and swallowed all the rebels.  Some Israelites of the Dathan and Abiram clans object to Moses for the punishment of Korah.  God then commands Moses to depart from the multitude and God  smites 14,700 men with plague, as punishment for their objection.
