Leviticus Chapter 10

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 not.
10:2 And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD.
10:3 Then Moses said to 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 peace.
10:4 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said to 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 to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to 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 of Moses.

No strong drink before entering the tabernacle

10:8 And the LORD spake to 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 generations
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 to them by the hand of Moses.

Eating of holy things

10:12 And Moses spake to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to 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 commanded.
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 to 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.
