Numbers 16:32—Were all Korah’s family killed with him or only some?

Problem: This verse states that “the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, with their households and all the men with Korah.” However, Numbers 26:11 speaks about Korah’s descendants who did not perish in the judgment.

Solution: Those who perished with Korah were all his followers, but not all his family.Numbers 26:11 states clearly: “Nevertheless the children of Korah did not die.” Indeed, the prophet Samuel was a descendant of Korah (1 Chron. 6:22–28).
