Abihu @ father of Him; i.e., "worshipper of God", the second of the sons of Aaron Exodus:6:23; Numbers:3:2Numbers:26:60; 1Chronicles:6:3). Along with his three brothers he was consecrated to the priest's office Exodus:28:1). With his father and elder brother he accompanied the seventy elders part of the way up the mount with Moses Exodus:24:1Exodus:24:9). On one occasion he and Nadab his brother offered incense in their censers filled with "strange" (i.e., common) fire, i.e., not with fire taken from the great brazen altar Leviticus:6:9, etc.), and for this offence they were struck dead, and were taken out and buried without the camp Leviticus:10:1-11; comp. Numbers:3:4Numbers:26:61; 1Chronicles:24:2). It is probable that when they committed this offence they were intoxicated, for immediately after is given the law prohibiting the use of wine or strong drink to the priests.
