1 Chronicles 21:1-30

And Satan
<07854>
stood up
<05975> (8799)
against Israel
<03478>_,
and provoked
<05496> (8686)
David
<01732>
to number
<04487> (8800)
Israel
<03478>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Joab
<03097>
and to the rulers
<08269>
of the people
<05971>_,
Go
<03212> (8798)_,
number
<05608> (8798)
Israel
<03478>
from Beersheba
<0884>
even to Dan
<01835>_;
and bring
<0935> (8685)
the number
<04557>
of them to me, that I may know
<03045> (8799)
[it].
And Joab
<03097>
answered
<0559> (8799)_,
The LORD
<03068>
make his people
<05971>
an hundred
<03967>
times
<06471>
so many more
<03254> (8686)
as they
<01992>
[be]: but, my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
[are] they not all my lord's
<0113>
servants
<05650>_?
why then doth my lord
<0113>
require
<01245> (8762)
this thing? why will he be a cause of trespass
<0819>
to Israel
<03478>_?
Nevertheless the king's
<04428>
word
<01697>
prevailed
<02388> (8804)
against Joab
<03097>_.
Wherefore Joab
<03097>
departed
<03318> (8799)_,
and went
<01980> (8691)
throughout all Israel
<03478>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And Joab
<03097>
gave
<05414> (8799)
the sum
<04557>
of the number
<04662>
of the people
<05971>
unto David
<01732>_.
And all [they of] Israel
<03478>
were a thousand
<0505>
thousand
<0505>
and an hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>
that drew
<08025> (8802)
sword
<02719>_:
and Judah
<03063>
[was] four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
threescore and ten
<07657>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>
that drew
<08025> (8802)
sword
<02719>_.
But Levi
<03878>
and Benjamin
<01144>
counted
<06485> (8804)
he not among
<08432>
them: for the king's
<04428>
word
<01697>
was abominable
<08581> (8738)
to Joab
<03097>_.
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>_.
Then the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
commanded
<0559> (8804)
Gad
<01410>
to say
<0559> (8800)
to David
<01732>_,
that David
<01732>
should go up
<05927> (8799)_,
and set up
<06965> (8687)
an altar
<04196>
unto the LORD
<03068>
in the threshingfloor
<01637>
of Ornan
<0771>
the Jebusite
<02983>_.
And David
<01732>
went up
<05927> (8799)
at the saying
<01697>
of Gad
<01410>_,
which he spake
<01696> (8765)
in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And Ornan
<0771>
turned back
<07725> (8799)_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)
the angel
<04397>_;
and his four
<0702>
sons
<01121>
with him hid
<02244> (8693)
themselves. Now Ornan
<0771>
was threshing
<01758> (8804)
wheat
<02406>_.
{And Ornan...: or, When Ornan turned back and saw the angel, then he and his four sons with him hid themselves}
And as David
<01732>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Ornan
<0771>_,
Ornan
<0771>
looked
<05027> (8686)
and saw
<07200> (8799)
David
<01732>_,
and went out
<03318> (8799)
of the threshingfloor
<01637>_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself to David
<01732>
with [his] face
<0639>
to the ground
<0776>_.
Then David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Ornan
<0771>_,
Grant
<05414> (8798)
me the place
<04725>
of [this] threshingfloor
<01637>_,
that I may build
<01129> (8799)
an altar
<04196>
therein unto the LORD
<03068>_:
thou shalt grant
<05414> (8798)
it me for the full
<04392>
price
<03701>_:
that the plague
<04046>
may be stayed
<06113> (8735)
from the people
<05971>_.
{Grant: Heb. Give}
And Ornan
<0771>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
[it] to thee, and let my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
do
<06213> (8799)
[that which is] good
<02896>
in his eyes
<05869>_:
lo
<07200> (8798)_,
I give
<05414> (8804)
[thee] the oxen
<01241>
[also] for burnt offerings
<05930>_,
and the threshing instruments
<04173>
for wood
<06086>_,
and the wheat
<02406>
for the meat offering
<04503>_;
I give
<05414> (8804)
it all.
And king
<04428>
David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Ornan
<0771>_,
Nay; but I will verily
<07069> (8800)
buy
<07069> (8799)
it for the full
<04392>
price
<03701>_:
for I will not take
<05375> (8799)
[that] which [is] thine for the LORD
<03068>_,
nor offer
<05927> (8687)
burnt offerings
<05930>
without cost
<02600>_.
So David
<01732>
gave
<05414> (8799)
to Ornan
<0771>
for the place
<04725>
six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
shekels
<08255>
of gold
<02091>
by weight
<04948>_.
And David
<01732>
built
<01129> (8799)
there an altar
<04196>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and offered
<05927> (8686)
burnt offerings
<05930>
and peace offerings
<08002>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
upon the LORD
<03068>_;
and he answered
<06030> (8799)
him from heaven
<08064>
by fire
<0784>
upon the altar
<04196>
of burnt offering
<05930>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
commanded
<0559> (8799)
the angel
<04397>_;
and he put up
<07725> (0)
his sword
<02719>
again
<07725> (8686)
into the sheath
<05084>
thereof.
At that time
<06256>
when David
<01732>
saw
<07200> (8800)
that the LORD
<03068>
had answered
<06030> (8804)
him in the threshingfloor
<01637>
of Ornan
<0771>
the Jebusite
<02983>_,
then he sacrificed
<02076> (8799)
there.
For the tabernacle
<04908>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
which Moses
<04872>
made
<06213> (8804)
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
and the altar
<04196>
of the burnt offering
<05930>_,
[were] at that season
<06256>
in the high place
<01116>
at Gibeon
<01391>_.
But David
<01732>
could
<03201> (8804)
not go
<03212> (8800)
before
<06440>
it to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of God
<0430>_:
for he was afraid
<01204> (8738)
because
<06440>
of the sword
<02719>
of the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
