1 Chronicles 21:24-25

Context
21:24 King David replied to Ornan, “No, I insist on buying it for top price. 1  I will not offer to the Lord what belongs to you or offer a burnt sacrifice 2  that cost me nothing. 3  21:25 So David bought the place from Ornan for 600 pieces of gold. 4 

1 tn Heb “No, for buying I will buy for full silver.” The infinitive absolute precedes the finite verb for emphasis.

2 tc The parallel text in 2 Sam 24:24 has the plural “burnt sacrifices.”

3 tn Or “without [paying] compensation.”

4 tc The parallel text of 2 Sam 24:24 says David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for “fifty pieces of silver.” This would have been about 20 ounces (568 grams) of silver by weight.

tn Heb “six hundred shekels of gold.” This would have been about 15 lbs. (6.8 kg) of gold by weight.
