Proverbs 10:7 states, "The name of the wicked shall rot." In the Talmud (Yoma 38b) Rabbi Elazar comments on this by saying, "It means that decay will spread on their names, meaning that we do not call others by their names, and the name will sink into oblivion."
I would have thought that Korach's name would be such a name, yet a parshat is named after him. I understand that a parshat takes its name from something found in the first line or so. So why wasn't Parshat Korach worded differently such that Korach's name did not appear in the first line or two; that way the parhat could have been given a different name. Why was a parshat named after Korach?
