NADAB. 1 . The eldest son of Aaron ( Exodus 6:23 , Numbers 3:2 ; Numbers 26:60 , 1 Chronicles 6:3 ; 1 Chronicles 24:1 ); accompanied Moses to Sinai ( Exodus 24:1 ; Exodus 24:9 f.); was admitted to the priestly office ( Exodus 28:1 ); and on the very day of his consecration ( Leviticus 10:12 ff. compared with ch. 9) he and Abihu perished ( Leviticus 10:1-2 , Numbers 3:4 ; Numbers 26:61 , 1 Chronicles 24:2 ) for offering ‘ strange fire .’ Wherein the transgression of Nadab and Abihu is supposed to have consisted is not clear. It is often suggested that ‘strange’ fire means fire taken from a common source instead of from the altar (cf. Leviticus 16:12 , Numbers 16:46 ). 2 . A Jerahmeelite ( 1 Chronicles 2:28 ; 1 Chronicles 2:30 ). 3 . A Benjamite ( 1 Chronicles 8:30 = 1 Chronicles 9:35 ). 4 . See next article.
