Aaron's son have no respect for God or the Tabernacle or their duties. They fail to follow God's instructions, and they burn before Him the wrong kind of fire. The Lord was not pleased. In fact, He burned both of them up.
The Lord said, "I will display my holiness through those who come near me. I will display my glory before all the people."
Something similar to this happened in the New Testament, during out current dispensation of grace. God struck a man and his wife dead at the altar for making an offering but lying about the fact that they withheld some of the money they received from the sale of land. They didn't have to give anything, but since they lied about what they did give, they invoked God's anger and were struck down.
