Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 10:2

_ _ there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them — rather, “killed them”; for it appears (Leviticus 10:5) that neither their bodies nor their robes were consumed. The expression, “from the Lord,” indicates that this fire issued from the most holy place. In the destruction of these two young priests by the infliction of an awful judgment, the wisdom of God observed the same course, in repressing the first instance of contempt for sacred things, as he did at the commencement of the Christian dispensation (Acts 5:1-11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 10:1-2.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 10:2

From the Lord — From heaven, or rather from the sanctuary. Devoured them — Destroyed their lives; for their bodies and garments were not consumed. Thus the sword is said to devour, 2 Samuel 2:26. Thus lightning many times kill persons, without any hurt to their garments.
