What did Nadab and Abihu do wrong?

This is a seemingly unusual action by the Lord, in that Nadab and Abihu had offered incense before the Lord, without provocation from the Lord. It's important to understand that a priest acts for God ...

Leviticus 16 - Does the casting of the lots mean that the two goats are actually one sacrifice?

Yes, I believe it's to show it is the same sacrifice. This originated in the fall: Genesis 3:21,24 (KJV 1900) 21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. ...

What did Nadab and Abihu do wrong?

( Job 1:5 ) Job seems to be offering sacrifices for his children's "probable/possible" sin and cursing of God in a legalistic/perfunctory manner

You have edged into a complex understanding - complex because in order to to answer it, you need to draw ‘in’ a lot. The book of Job is actually crucial in ‘seeing the whole picture’- but instead most ...

Who bears the sin in Leviticus 10:17? The priest or sin offering?

In a very literal sense it is neither the offering nor the priest. In a metaphoric sense, both did. In the sacrificial system we have two elements: (a) the animal, eg, the lamb, and, (b) the priest. ...

Does "Asor" (עָשׂוֹר) in Psalm 92:4 [MT] mean a "Tenth" in regards to a "Tithe" (מַעְשַׂ֤ר) instead of an instrument?

In Ps 92:4 (MT) or Ps 92:3 in English Bibles, the reference to עָשׂוֹר (asor) is almost certainly to an instrument rather than tithe for the following reasons: עָשׂוֹר never means one tenth but ...
