This fire, which destroyed the sacrificers, came from the
same source with that which had consumed the sacrifices.
* See ch.
Note. 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, (ver.
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.
