9 Adonai said to Moshe,
10 “Get away from this assembly, and I will destroy them at once!” But they fell on their faces.
11 Moshe said to Aharon, “Take your fire pan, put fire from the altar in it, lay incense on it, and hurry with it to the assembly to make atonement for them, because anger has gone out from Adonai, and the plague has already begun!”
12 Aharon took it, as Moshe had said, and ran into the middle of the assembly. There the plague had already begun among the people, but he added the incense and made atonement for the people.
13 He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stopped.
14 Those dying from the plague numbered 14,700 — besides those who died in the Korach incident.
15 Aharon returned to Moshe at the entrance to the tent of meeting, and the plague was stopped.
