Burning of Nodab and Abihu
10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of
them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon,
and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them
10:2 And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured
them, and they died before the LORD.
10:3 Then Moses said unto Aaron, This [is it] that the LORD
spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come near me,
and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his
10:4 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of
Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry
your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.
10:5 So they went near, and carried them in their coats out
of the camp ; as Moses had said.
10:6 And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto
Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your
clothes ; unless you die, and unless wrath come upon all the people
but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the
burning which the LORD has kindled.
10:7 And you shall not go out from the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, unless you die for the anointing
oil of the LORD [is] upon you. And they did according to the word
No strong drink before entering the tabernacle
10:8 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,
10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, you, or your sons
with you, when you go into the tabernacle of the congregation,
unless you die [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your
10:10 And that you may put difference between holy and
unholy, and between unclean and clean ;
10:11 And that you may teach the children of Israel all the
statutes which the LORD has spoken unto them by the hand of
Eating of holy things
10:12 And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto
Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that
remained of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it
without leaven beside the altar for it [is] most holy
10:13 And you shall eat it in the holy place, because it [is]
your due, and your sons' due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made
by fire for so I am commanded.
10:14 And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall you eat in
a clean place ; you, and your sons, and your daughters with you
for [they be] you due, and you sons' due, [which] are given out
of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel.
10:15 The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring
with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave [it for] a
wave offering before the LORD ; and it shall be your, and your
sons' with you, by a statute for ever ; as the LORD has
10:16 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin
offering, and, behold, it was burnt and he was angry with Eleazar
and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron [which were] left [alive], saying,
10:17 Wherefore have you not eaten the sin offering in the
holy place, seeing it [is] most holy, and [God] has given it you
to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for
them before the LORD ?
10:18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the
holy [place] you should indeed have eaten it in the holy [place],
as I commanded.
10:19 And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they
offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the
LORD ; and such things have befallen me and [if] I had eaten the
sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of
the LORD ?
10:20 And when Moses heard [that], he was content.
