Nadab and Abihu, for offering of strange fire, are burnt by fire.
Leviticus 10:1 Then Aaron's sons, Nadab and Abihu, took each man his censer, and placed therein fire, and put thereon incense,and brought near before Yahweh, strange fire, which he had not commanded them. Leviticus 10:2 Then came there forth fire from before Yahweh, and consumed them,and they died before Yahweh. Leviticus 10:3 Then said Moses unto AaronThe very thing, that Yahweh spake, sayingIn them that draw near to me, must I be hallowed, And, before the faces of all the people, must I get myself honour,And Aaron, was dumb. Leviticus 10:4 Then called Moses unto Mishael, and unto Elzaphan, sons of Uzziel, uncle of Aaron,and said unto themDraw near, bear away your brethren from before the sanctuary, unto the outside of the camp. Leviticus 10:5 So they drew near and bare them away, in their tunics, unto the outside of the camp,as spake Moses.
Aaron and his sons are forbidden to mourn for them.
Leviticus 10:6 Then said Moses unto Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sonsYour heads, ye may not bare and, your garments, ye shall not rend, so shall ye not die, neither, against all the assembly, will he be wroth,but let, your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the consuming fire wherewith Yahweh hath consumed. Leviticus 10:7 But, from the entrance of the tent of meeting, shall ye not go forth, lest ye die, for, the anointing oil of Yahweh, is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses.
The priests are forbidden wine when they are to go into the Tabernacle.
Leviticus 10:8 Then spake Yahweh unto Aaron, saying: Leviticus 10:9 Wine and strong drink, thou mayest not drink,thou nor thy sons with thee, when ye enter into the tent of meeting, so shall ye not die,an age-abiding statute, to your generations; Leviticus 10:10 That ye may make a difference, between the sacred and the common,and between the unclean, and the clean; Leviticus 10:11 And may teach the sons of Israel,all the statutes which Yahweh hath spoken unto them, by the mediation of Moses.
The law of eating the holy things.
Leviticus 10:12 Then spake Moses unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar his sons, that were left, Take ye the meal-offering that is left, of the altar-flames of Yahweh, and eat it unleavened, beside the altar,for, most holy, it is; Leviticus 10:13 therefore shall ye eat it in a holy place, for, thine by statute, and thy sons' by statute, it is, from among the altar-flames of Yahweh,for, so, am I commanded. Leviticus 10:14 And, the wave-breast, and the heave-shoulder, shall ye eat in clean place, thou, and thy sons and thy daughters with thee,for, as thine by statute, and thy sons' by statute, have they been given, from among the peace-offerings of the sons of Israel. Leviticus 10:15 The heave-shoulder and the wave-breast, upon the altar-flames of the fat portions, shall they bring in, to wave as a wave-offering, before Yahweh,so shall they be thine, and thy sons' with thee, by an age-abiding statute, As Yahweh hath commanded.
Aaron's excuse for transgressing thereof.
Leviticus 10:16 Now, as for the sin-bearing goat, Moses, diligently sought, it, but lo! it had been burnt up,then was he wroth against Eleazar and against Ithamar, the sons of Aaron that were left, saying: Leviticus 10:17 Wherefore did ye not eat the sin-bearer in the holy place? for, most, holy, it is,and, the same, hath he given you, that ye may bear the iniquity of the assembly, to put a propitiatory-covering over them, before Yahweh. Leviticus 10:18 Lo! the blood thereof had not been taken into the holy place, within,ye should have, indeed eaten, it, in a holy place, as I commanded. Leviticus 10:19 Then spake Aaron unto MosesLo! this very day, when they had brought near their own sin-bearer, and their own ascending-sacrifice, there befell me such things as these,if, then, I had eaten of the sin-bearer this day, would it have been well-pleasing in the eyes of Yahweh? Leviticus 10:20 And, when Moses heard that, then was it well-pleasing in his eyes.
