Abihu was among the people who were allowed to go on Mount Sinai. He went together with Moses, Aaron, his brother Nadab and 70 elders of Israel.

Also at Mount Sinai, Abihu was appointed a priest over the people Israel with his father and all his brothers.

Shortly after Aaron and his sons were ordained priests, Abihu and Nadab offered incense before the Lord, without being authorised to do so. God then killed them by fire. They were taken out of the camp by Mishael and Elizaphan.
