Moses then said to Aaron, "This is what the LORD spoke of when he said: " 'Among those who approach me1 I will show myself holy;2 in the sight of all the people I will be honored.3' " Aaron remained silent.
Moses summoned Mishael and Elzaphan,4 sons of Aaron's uncle Uzziel,5 and said to them, "Come here; carry your cousins outside the camp,6 away from the front of the sanctuary.7"
So they came and carried them, still in their tunics,8 outside the camp, as Moses ordered.
Then Moses said to Aaron and his sons Eleazar and Ithamar,9 "Do not let your hair become unkempt,a10 and do not tear your clothes,11 or you will die and the LORD will be angry with the whole community.12 But your relatives, all the house of Israel, may mourn13 for those the LORD has destroyed by fire.
Do not leave the entrance to the Tent of Meeting14 or you will die, because the LORD's anointing oil15 is on you." So they did as Moses said.
