“ Nadab and Abihu, two of Aaron’s sons, presumed to worship God with ‘strange fire which He commanded them not.’ This act of presumption was met by an immediate judgment as the fire of God’s wrath consumed the two brothers. The interpretation of this historical event is not difficult: God abhors carelessness in worship which presumes to offer what He has not commanded…Some readers react to this account with startled amazement, as if the punishment inflicted was far more severe than offense deserved. Such a response, however, not only calls God’s perfect justice into question, but also fails to appreciate the seriousness of worship…God’s worship must be governed by two chief considerations. First, God’s holiness must be duly regarded by those who come near to Him. Second, the exclusivity of God’s glory is given as a reason for His jealousy about worship.” (Comin, 28,29)
