The Sin of Nadab and Abihu

10Aaron's sons Nadab and Abihu put coals of fire in their incense burners and sprinkled incense over them. In this way, they disobeyed the LORD by burning before him the wrong kind of fire, different than he had commanded.H5070H30H1121H175H3947H376H4289H5414H784H2004H7760H7004H7126H2114H784H6440H3068H6680 2So fire blazed forth from the LORD's presence and burned them up, and they died there before the LORD.H3318H784H3068H398H4191H6440H3068 3Then Moses said to Aaron, "This is what the LORD meant when he said, 'I will display my holiness through those who come near me. I will display my glory before all the people.'"H4872H559H175H3068H1696H559H6942H7138H6440H5971H3513H175H1826 4Then Moses called for Mishael and Elzaphan, Aaron's cousins, the sons of Aaron's uncle Uzziel. He said to them, "Come forward and carry away the bodies of your relatives from in front of the sanctuary to a place outside the camp."H4872H7121H4332H469H1121H5816H1730H175H559H7126H5375H251H6440H6944H2351H4264 5So they came forward and picked them up by their garments and carried them out of the camp, just as Moses had commanded.H7126H5375H3801H2351H4264H4872H1696 6Then Moses said to Aaron and his sons Eleazar and Ithamar, "Do not show grief by leaving your hair uncombed or by tearing your clothes. If you do, you will die, and the LORD's anger will strike the whole community of Israel. However, the rest of the Israelites, your relatives, may mourn because of the LORD's fiery destruction of Nadab and Abihu.H4872H559H175H499H385H1121H6544H7218H6533H899H4191H7107H5712H251H1004H3478H1058H8316H3068H8313 7But you must not leave the entrance of the Tabernacle or you will die, for you have been anointed with the LORD's anointing oil." So they did as Moses commanded.H3318H6607H168H4150H4191H4888H8081H3068H6213H1697H4872

Instructions for Priestly Conduct

8Then the LORD said to Aaron,H3068H1696H175H559 9"You and your descendants must never drink wine or any other alcoholic drink before going into the Tabernacle. If you do, you will die. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed from generation to generation.H8354H3196H7941H1121H935H168H4150H4191H2708H5769H1755 10You must distinguish between what is sacred and what is common, between what is ceremonially unclean and what is clean.H914H6944H2455H2931H2889 11And you must teach the Israelites all the decrees that the LORD has given them through Moses."H3384H1121H3478H2706H3068H1696H3027H4872 12Then Moses said to Aaron and his remaining sons, Eleazar and Ithamar, "Take what is left of the grain offering after a portion has been presented as a special gift to the LORD, and eat it beside the altar. Make sure it contains no yeast, for it is most holy.H4872H1696H175H499H385H1121H3498H3947H4503H3498H801H3068H801H398H4682H681H4196H6944H6944 13You must eat it in a sacred place, for it has been given to you and your descendants as your portion of the special gifts presented to the LORD. These are the commands I have been given.H398H6918H4725H2706H1121H2706H801H3068H801H6680 14But the breast and thigh that were lifted up as a special offering may be eaten in any place that is ceremonially clean. These parts have been given to you and your descendants as your portion of the peace offerings presented by the people of Israel.H8573H2373H8641H7785H398H2889H4725H1121H1323H2706H1121H2706H5414H2077H8002H1121H3478 15You must lift up the thigh and breast as a special offering to the LORD, along with the fat of the special gifts. These parts will belong to you and your descendants as your permanent right, just as the LORD has commanded."H8641H7785H8573H2373H935H801H2459H5130H8573H6440H3068H1121H2706H5769H3068H6680 16Moses then asked them what had happened to the goat of the sin offering. When he discovered it had been burned up, he became very angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's remaining sons.H4872H1875H1875H8163H2403H8313H7107H499H385H1121H175H3498H559 17"Why didn't you eat the sin offering in the sacred area?" he demanded. "It is a holy offering! The LORD has given it to you to remove the guilt of the community and to purify the people, making them right with the LORD.H398H2403H6944H4725H6944H6944H5414H5375H5771H5712H3722H6440H3068 18Since the animal's blood was not brought into the Holy Place, you should have eaten the meat in the sacred area as I ordered you."H2005H1818H935H6441H6944H398H398H6944H6680 19Then Aaron answered Moses, "Today my sons presented both their sin offering and their burnt offering to the LORD. And yet this tragedy has happened to me. If I had eaten the people's sin offering on such a tragic day as this, would the LORD have been pleased?"H175H1696H4872H3117H7126H2403H5930H6440H3068H7122H398H2403H3117H3190H5869H3068 20And when Moses heard this, he was satisfied.H4872H8085H3190H5869
