Numbers 16:36-40 King James Version (KJV)
36 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
37 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed.
38 The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.
39 And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar:
40 To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses.

Numbers 16:36-40 New King James Version (NKJV)

36 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: 37 “Tell Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, to pick up the censers out of the blaze, for they are holy, and scatter the fire some distance away. 38 The censers of these men who sinned against their own souls, let them be made into hammered plates as a covering for the altar. Because they presented them before the LORD, therefore they are holy; and they shall be a sign to the children of Israel.” 39 So Eleazar the priest took the bronze censers, which those who were burned up had presented, and they were hammered out as a covering on the altar, 40 to be a memorial to the children of Israel that no outsider, who is not a descendant of Aaron, should come near to offer incense before the LORD, that he might not become like Korah and his companions, just as the LORD had said to him through Moses.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

36 The Lord thru Moses which showed who God had in charge.

37 They were used in serving God so they were holy and needed to be kept.

38 The ones of the evil were still used for serving God but because they were misused they would become something else to be used by God. It was also to be changed so that the people could remember what had happened. Sometimes we need to keep things to remember, it is good to remember so we do not make the same mistakes again.

39 The priest God had chosen did what God wanted not what he wanted. Often times God chooses people because they are willing to serve Him without questioning or defying Him.

40 By having a memorial they would remember what the Lord did to those that defied Him, they were judged, those defy God will be judged.
