10 Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihua took their censers,b put fire in themc and added incense;d and they offered unauthorized fire before the Lord,e contrary to his command.f 2 So fire came outg from the presence of the Lord and consumed them,h and they died before the Lord.i 3 Moses then said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke of when he said:
“ ‘Among those who approach mej
I will be proved holy;k
in the sight of all the people
I will be honored.l’ ”
Aaron remained silent.
