On the eighth day of the dedication of the Mishkan (Sanctuary), Aharon, his sons, and the entire nation bring various korbanot (offerings) as commanded by Moshe.
Aharon and Moshe bless the nation.
G-d allows the Jewish People to sense His Presence after they complete the Mishkan.
Aharon's sons, Nadav and Avihu, present an offering of strange fire. They die on the spot, stressing the need to perform the commandments only as G-d directs.
