Numbers 16:10 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

When Moses heard these words of the rebels, he fell upon his face, to complain of the matter to the Lord, as in Numbers 14:5. He then said to Korah and his company, "To-morrow Jehovah will show who is His and holy, and will let him come near to Him, and he whom He chooseth will draw near to Him." The meaning of לו אשׁר is evident from בּו יבחר אשׁר. He is Jehovah's, whom He chooses, so that He belongs to Him with his whole life. The reference is to the priestly rank, to which God had chosen Aaron and his sons out of the whole nation, and sanctified them by a special consecration (Exodus 28:1; Exodus 29:1; Leviticus 8:12, Leviticus 8:30), and by which they became the persons "standing near to Him" (Leviticus 10:3), and were qualified to appear before Him in the sanctuary, and present to Him the sacrifices of the nation.
