Leviticus 10 describes the death of Nadab
and Abihu, sons of Aaron.
Following the verse, "Then He said to Moses, 'Come up to the Lord, with Aaron, Nadab
and Abihu, and seventy elders of Israel, and bow low from afar'" (Exod 24:1), Maimonides explains the hierarchy of nearness to Moses during the revelation of the Covenant in which "only those who were fit for it achieved the rank of prophecy, and even those in various degrees.

Esa pudo haber sido la justicia poetica que merecieron los rebeldes Nadab
