 27:2
 27:3
27:3 'Our father died in the desert. He was not among the members of Korach's party who protested against God, but he died because of his own sin without leaving any sons.
Avinu met bamidbar vehu lo-hayah betoch ha'edah hano'adim al-Adonay ba'adat-Korach ki-vechet'o met uvanim lo-hayu lo.



Commentary:

own sin
  Some say that he was the one cutting wood on the Sabbath (Numbers 15:33). Others say that he was among those who tried to invade the Holy Land's hill country (Numbers 14:45) (Sifri on 15.33; Shabbath 96b, 97a; Rashi).
