-40 And there
came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred
and fifty men that offered incense. ... [To be
] a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no
stranger, which [is
] not of the seed of Aaron, come near
to offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses.
And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put
fire therein from off
the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement
for them: for there is wrath
gone out from the LORD; the plague is begun
For our God [is
] a consuming fire.
