Book 2: Psalms of the Face

For generations the “Sons of Korah” considered the striking contrast between their ancestor Korah, the one who rebelled against God, and Moses, God’s prophet and the one against whom Korah raged. In God’s design, Moses was vindicated and Korah and many of his immediate family were destroyed. The moving example of Moses’ dependence upon God, contrasting Korah’s rebellious spirit, transformed the descendants of Korah, and their reflections upon this have led to some of the Bible’s most moving prayers and songs.
