Leviticus 10:1-2

Nadab and Abihu

1-2That same day Nadab and Abihu, Aaron's sons, took their censers, put hot coals and incense in them, and offered "strange" fire to God—something God had not commanded. Fire blazed out from God and consumed them—they died in God's presence.

3Moses said to Aaron, "This is what God meant when he said,

To the one who comes near me,

I will show myself holy;

Before all the people,

I will show my glory."

Aaron was silent.
