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
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] 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
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; 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.
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
10:8 And the LORD spoke to Aaron, saying,
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
10:10 And that ye may make a difference between holy and unholy,
and between unclean and clean;
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
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:
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.
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
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

and behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and
Ithamar, the sons of Aaron [who were] left [alive], saying,
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?
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
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?
10:20 And when Moses heard [that], he was content.
