Nadab and Abihu, for offering of strange fire, are burnt by fire.
Leviticus 10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took each of them his censer, and put fire in it, and put incense on it, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. Leviticus 10:2 And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD. Leviticus 10:3 Then Moses said to Aaron, This [is] what the LORD spoke, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace. Leviticus 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. Leviticus 10:5 So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.
Aaron and his sons are forbidden to mourn for them.
Leviticus 10:6 And Moses said to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the LORD hath kindled. Leviticus 10:7 And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the LORD [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 And the LORD spoke to Aaron, saying, Leviticus 10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your generations: Leviticus 10:10 And that ye may make a difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean; Leviticus 10:11 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken to them by the hand of Moses.
The law of eating the holy things.
Leviticus 10:12 And Moses spoke to Aaron, and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat-offering that remaineth of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it [is] most holy: Leviticus 10:13 And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it [is] thy due, and thy sons' due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded. Leviticus 10:14 And the wave-breast and heave-shoulder shall ye eat in a clean place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for [they are] thy due, and thy sons' due, [which] are given out of the sacrifices of peace-offerings of the children of Israel. Leviticus 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 thine, and thy sons' with thee, by a statute for ever; as the LORD hath commanded.
Aaron's excuse for transgressing thereof.
Leviticus 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 [who were] left [alive], saying, Leviticus 10:17 Why have ye not eaten the sin-offering in the holy place, seeing it [is] most holy, and [God] hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the LORD? Leviticus 10:18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought within the holy [place]: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy [place], as I commanded. Leviticus 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, would it have been accepted in the sight of the LORD? Leviticus 10:20 And when Moses heard [that], he was content.
