Then Moses said to Aaron, "Take your censer1 and put incense in it, along with fire from the altar, and hurry to the assembly2 to make atonement3 for them. Wrath has come out from the LORD;4 the plague5 has started."
So Aaron did as Moses said, and ran into the midst of the assembly. The plague had already started among the people,6 but Aaron offered the incense and made atonement for them.
He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped.749
But 14,700 people died from the plague, in addition to those who had died because of Korah.850
Then Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, for the plague had stopped.
