They died.

The wages of sin is death.

They died suddenly.

They died before the Lord; that is, before the vail that covered the mercy-seat.

They died by fire, as by fire they sinned.

The fire did not burn them to ashes, as it had done the sacrifices, nor so much as singe their coats - Leviticus 10:5 but struck them dead in an instant. By these different effects of the same fire, we learn that it was no common fire, but kindled by the breath of the Almighty. Isaiah 30:33

strong drink: The Hebrew shecher, Arabic sakar, or sukr, Greek ףיךוסב, from shachar, to inebriate, signifies any kind of fermented and inebriating liquor beside wine. So St. Jerome informs us, that sicera in Hebrew denotes any inebriating liquor, whether made of corn, the juice of apples, honey, dates, or any other fruit. These different kinds of liquors are described by Pliny, who calls then vina factitia. One of the four prohibited drinks among the Mohammedans in India is called sakar, which denotes inebriating liquor in general, but especially date wine.
