(uh bi' hyoo) Personal name meaning, “my father is he.” The second son of Aaron; one of Israel's first priests (Exodus 6:23; Exodus 28:1 ). He saw God with Moses, Aaron, his brother, and 70 elders (Exodus 24:1 ). He and his brother Nadab offered “strange fire” before God (Leviticus 10:1-22 ). The exact nature of their sin is not known. They simply did what God had not commanded. Perhaps they offered sacrifice at the wrong time or with coals or materials not properly sanctified. Compare Leviticus 16:12 . The result is clear. God's fire consumed them. See Priests .
