    Summary

    "And Aaron's sons, Nadav and Avihu, each took his pan, put fire in them, and placed incense upon it, and they brought before the Lord foreign fire, which He had not commanded them. And fire went forth from before the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. Then Moses said to Aaron, 'This is what the Lord spoke: I will be sanctified through those near to Me, and before all the people I will be glorified.' And Aaron was silent."

     

     

     

    Rashi says: "But when did He speak? [It was when He said], 'And I will meet with the children of Israel, and it will be sanctified through My glory (בִּכְבוֹדִי) ' (Exod. 29:43). Do not read בִּכְבוֹדִי, 'through My glory,' but בִּמְכֻבָּדַי, 'through My honorable ones.' Moses said to Aaron, 'Aaron, my brother! I knew that this House was to be sanctified through the beloved ones of the Omnipresent, but I thought it would be either through me or through you. Now I see that they [Nadab and Abihu] were greater than I or you!'"
