father of height; i.e., "proud." (1.) One of the sons of Eliab, who joined Korah in the conspiracy against Moses and Aaron. He and all the conspirators, with their families and possessions (except the children of Korah), were swallowed up by an earthquake (Num. 16:1-27; 26:9; Ps. 106:17). (2.) The eldest son of Hiel the Bethelite, who perished prematurely in consequence of his father's undertaking to rebuild Jericho (1 Kings 16:34), according to the words of Joshua (6:26). (See JERICHO.)
The earth is opening her mouth to swallow up alive Korah, Dathan, and abiram.
I tell you, abiram, there is need of moving, for more reasons than one.
Patty and Elise laughed heartily to see abiram sit up and cross his paws over his fat little body.
abiram, as usual, seemed the one most given to solicitude and doubt.
Korah, Dathan, and abiram these were named, and they were abrupt dogs to a point reaching brusqueness.
abiram stared about him with a gaze that bespoke an unsettled reason.
A reprieve, to one abject and wretched as abiram, temporarily produced the same effects as a pardon.
The sea will surely swallow them up as the earth did Dathan and abiram.
"I would more readily kick a police constable than I would kick abiram," he said.
May the earth swallow them alive, like Dathan and abiram for the sin of disobedience!
