    They envied Moses - A reference to the case of Korah and his company.

    Aaron the saint - The anointed, the high priest of the Lord.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 106:16

    They envied Moses also in the camp - They were envious of him, or rebelled against him, as assuming too much authority. See Numbers 16:1-2. The reference here is rather to the "result" of that envy in producing rebellion than to the envy itself. It is true, however, that the foundation of their opposition to him "was" envy.

    And Aaron the saint of the Lord - That is, as set apart to the service of the Lord; or, as employed in holy things. The reference is to his "office," not to his personal character.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 106:16

    106:16 The saint - So called, because he was consecrated by God for that sacred office of the priesthood, in which respect all the priests are said to be holy, Lev 21:6 -
    8. Hereby he intimates, that their envy and rebellion was not only against Aaron, but against God himself.
