1 Chronicles 21:7-17

And God
<0430>
was displeased
<03415> (8799) <05869>
with this thing
<01697>_;
therefore he smote
<05221> (8686)
Israel
<03478>_.
{And...: Heb. And it was evil in the eyes of the LORD concerning this thing}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto God
<0430>_,
I have sinned
<02398> (8804)
greatly
<03966>_,
because I have done
<06213> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_:
but now, I beseech thee, do away
<05674> (8685)
the iniquity
<05771>
of thy servant
<05650>_;
for I have done very
<03966>
foolishly
<05528> (8738)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
spake
<01696> (8762)
unto Gad
<01410>_,
David's
<01732>
seer
<02374>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
and tell
<01696> (8765)
David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
I offer
<05186> (8802)
thee three
<07969>
[things]: choose
<0977> (8798)
thee one
<0259>
of them
<02007>_,
that I may do
<06213> (8799)
[it] unto thee. {offer: Heb. stretch out}
So Gad
<01410>
came
<0935> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Choose
<06901> (8761)
thee {Choose...: Heb. Take to thee}
Either three
<07969>
years
<08141>_'
famine
<07458>_;
or three
<07969>
months
<02320>
to be destroyed
<05595> (8737)
before
<06440>
thy foes
<06862>_,
while that the sword
<02719>
of thine enemies
<0341> (8802)
overtaketh
<05381> (8688)
[thee]; or
<0518>
else three
<07969>
days
<03117>
the sword
<02719>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
even the pestilence
<01698>_,
in the land
<0776>_,
and the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
destroying
<07843> (8688)
throughout all the coasts
<01366>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Now therefore advise
<07200> (8798)
thyself what word
<01697>
I shall bring again
<07725> (8686)
to him that sent
<07971> (8802)
me.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Gad
<01410>_,
I am in a great
<03966>
strait
<06887> (8804)_:
let me fall
<05307> (8799)
now into the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
for very
<03966>
great
<07227>
[are] his mercies
<07356>_:
but let me not fall
<05307> (8799)
into the hand
<03027>
of man
<0120>_.
{very great: or, very many}
So the LORD
<03068>
sent
<05414> (8799)
pestilence
<01698>
upon Israel
<03478>_:
and there fell
<05307> (8799)
of Israel
<03478>
seventy
<07657>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>_.
And God
<0430>
sent
<07971> (8799)
an angel
<04397>
unto Jerusalem
<03389>
to destroy
<07843> (8687)
it: and as he was destroying
<07843> (8687)_,
the LORD
<03068>
beheld
<07200> (8804)_,
and he repented
<05162> (8735)
him of the evil
<07451>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
to the angel
<04397>
that destroyed
<07843> (8688)_,
It is enough
<07227>_,
stay
<07503> (8685)
now thine hand
<03027>_.
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
stood
<05975> (8802)
by the threshingfloor
<01637>
of Ornan
<0771>
the Jebusite
<02983>_.
{Ornan: also called, Araunah}
And David
<01732>
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)
the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
stand
<05975> (8802)
between the earth
<0776>
and the heaven
<08064>_,
having a drawn
<08025> (8803)
sword
<02719>
in his hand
<03027>
stretched out
<05186> (8803)
over Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Then David
<01732>
and the elders
<02205>
[of Israel, who were] clothed
<03680> (8794)
in sackcloth
<08242>_,
fell
<05307> (8799)
upon their faces
<06440>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto God
<0430>_,
[Is it] not I [that] commanded
<0559> (8804)
the people
<05971>
to be numbered
<04487> (8800)_?
even I it is that have sinned
<02398> (8804)
and done evil
<07489> (8689)
indeed
<07489> (8687)_;
but [as for] these sheep
<06629>_,
what have they done
<06213> (8804)_?
let thine hand
<03027>_,
I pray thee, O LORD
<03068>
my God
<0430>_,
be on me, and on my father's
<01>
house
<01004>_;
but not on thy people
<05971>_,
that they should be plagued
<04046>_.
