The story of this chapter is as sad an
interruption to the institutions of the levitical law as that of
the golden calf was to the account of the erecting of the
tabernacle. Here is, I. The sin and death of Nadab and Abihu, the
sons of Aaron, ver. 1, 2.
II. The quieting of Aaron under this sore affliction, ver. 3. III. Orders given and observed
about the funeral and mourning, ver.
4-7. IV. A command to the priests not to drink wine when
they went in to minister, ver.
8-11. V. The care Moses took that they should go on with
their work, notwithstanding the agitation produced by this event,
ver. 12, &c.
