And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation?

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

16:22 fell upon their faces. On more than one occasion, Moses interceded for God to spare Israel; when He seemed ready to consume the entire congregation, even though their rebellion had been directed against Moses and Moses might personally have benefited from their destruction (Deuteronomy 9:18-19, 23-29). See also Numbers 16:44-45.
