 16:11
 16:12
 16:13
16:12 Moses then sent word to summon Dathan and Aviram, the sons of Eliav.

'We won't come!' was their response.
Vayishlach Moshe likro le-Datan vela-Aviram beney Eli'av vayomeru lo na'aleh.

16:13 Isn't it enough that you brought us out [Egypt], a land flowing with milk and honey - just to kill us in the desert! What right do you have to set yourself above us?
Hame'at ki he'elitanu me'erets zavat chalav udevash lahamitenu bamidbar ki-tistarer aleynu gam-histarer.



Commentary:

come
  Literally 'go up.' Some say that this teaches that the Tabernacle was built on high ground (Bachya).

a land flowing...
  This was because Dathan and Aviram were wealthy leaders in Egypt (Lekach Tov).
