"They went down to the pit alive"1 - even in the grave they think they are alive.

There is a blessing contained in "They went down to the pit alive," as with "the sons of Korach did not die,"2 - "a place was established for them3 and they repented." For teshuva, repentance, is effective only while one is still alive. This, then, is the blessing - that even in the pit they will live, and they will be able to effect teshuva.

Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the sixth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory.

יום שלישי כו סיון (תש"ג)
שיעורים: חומש: קרח, שלישי עם פירש"י.
תהילים: קיט, מה...לא שכחתי.
תניא: וזה ג"כ ענין... 'פד' בפועל ממש.

וירדו חיים שאולה - שגם בשאול חושבים שהם חיים.

הברכה בוירדו חיים שאולה, כמו בני קרח לא מתו, מקום נתבצר להם ועשו תשובה, כי תשובה מועלת רק כל עוד שהוא חי, וזוהי הברכה, שגם בשאול יהיו חיים ויוכלו לעשות תשובה.
