 16:8
16:7 Tomorrow, place fire on them and offer incense on them before God. The man whom God chooses shall then be the holy one. You sons of Levi have [also] gone too far!'
Utenu vahen esh vesimu aleyhen ketoret lifney Adonay machar vehayah ha'ish asher-yivchar Adonay hu hakadosh rav-lachem beney Levi.
16:8 Moses tried to reason with Korach. 'Listen [to what I have to say], you sons of Levi.
Vayomer Moshe el-Korach shim'u-na beney Levi.



Commentary:

fire
  From the altar (Ralbag).

incense
  The regular incense described in Exodus 30:34-36 (BeMidbar Rabbah 18:7; Tanchuma 5; Ralbag). According to others, however, it was a simple incense spice, such as frankincense (Targum according to Ramban).
