2 Samuel 24:1-25

And again
<03254> (8686)
the anger
<0639>
of the LORD
<03068>
was kindled
<02734> (8800)
against Israel
<03478>_,
and he moved
<05496> (8686)
David
<01732>
against them to say
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)_,
number
<04487> (8798)
Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_.
For the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Joab
<03097>
the captain
<08269>
of the host
<02428>_,
which [was] with him, Go now through
<07751> (8798)
all the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>_,
from Dan
<01835>
even to Beersheba
<0884>_,
and number
<06485> (8798)
ye the people
<05971>_,
that I may know
<03045> (8804)
the number
<04557>
of the people
<05971>_.
{Go: or, Compass}
And Joab
<03097>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Now the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
add
<03254> (8686)
unto the people
<05971>_,
how many soever
<01992>
they be, an hundredfold
<03967> <06471>_,
and that the eyes
<05869>
of my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
may see
<07200> (8802)
[it]: but why doth my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
delight
<02654> (8804)
in this thing
<01697>_?
Notwithstanding the king's
<04428>
word
<01697>
prevailed
<02388> (8799)
against Joab
<03097>_,
and against the captains
<08269>
of the host
<02428>_.
And Joab
<03097>
and the captains
<08269>
of the host
<02428>
went out
<03318> (8799)
from the presence
<06440>
of the king
<04428>_,
to number
<06485> (8800)
the people
<05971>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And they passed over
<05674> (8799)
Jordan
<03383>_,
and pitched
<02583> (8799)
in Aroer
<06177>_,
on the right side
<03225>
of the city
<05892>
that [lieth] in the midst
<08432>
of the river
<05158>
of Gad
<01410>_,
and toward Jazer
<03270>_:
{river: or, valley}
Then they came
<0935> (8799)
to Gilead
<01568>_,
and to the land
<0776>
of Tahtimhodshi
<08483>_;
and they came
<0935> (8799)
to Danjaan
<01842>_,
and about
<05439>
to Zidon
<06721>_,
{land of Tahtimhodshi: or, nether land newly inhabited}
And came
<0935> (8799)
to the strong hold
<04013>
of Tyre
<06865>_,
and to all the cities
<05892>
of the Hivites
<02340>_,
and of the Canaanites
<03669>_:
and they went out
<03318> (8799)
to the south
<05045>
of Judah
<03063>_,
[even] to Beersheba
<0884>_.
So when they had gone
<07751> (8799)
through all the land
<0776>_,
they came
<0935> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>
at the end
<07097>
of nine
<08672>
months
<02320>
and twenty
<06242>
days
<03117>_.
And Joab
<03097>
gave up
<05414> (8799)
the sum
<04557>
of the number
<04662>
of the people
<05971>
unto the king
<04428>_:
and there were in Israel
<03478>
eight
<08083>
hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
valiant
<02428>
men
<0376> (8677) <0381>
that drew
<08025> (8802)
the sword
<02719>_;
and the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
[were] five
<02568>
hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>_.
And David's
<01732>
heart
<03820>
smote
<05221> (8686)
him after
<0310>
that he had numbered
<05608> (8804)
the people
<05971>_.
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
I have sinned
<02398> (8804)
greatly
<03966>
in that I have done
<06213> (8804)_:
and now, I beseech thee, O LORD
<03068>_,
take away
<05674> (8685)
the iniquity
<05771>
of thy servant
<05650>_;
for I have done very
<03966>
foolishly
<05528> (8738)_.
For when David
<01732>
was up
<06965> (8799)
in the morning
<01242>_,
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto the prophet
<05030>
Gad
<01410>_,
David's
<01732>
seer
<02374>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go
<01980> (8800)
and say
<0559> (8804)
unto David
<01732>_,
Thus saith
<01696> (8765)
the LORD
<03068>_,
I offer
<05190> (8802)
thee three
<07969>
[things]; choose
<0977> (8798)
thee one
<0259>
of them, that I may [do it] unto thee
<06213> (8799)_.
So Gad
<01410>
came
<0935> (8799)
to David
<01732>_,
and told
<05046> (8686)
him, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Shall seven
<07651>
years
<08141>
of famine
<07458>
come
<0935> (8799)
unto thee in thy land
<0776>_?
or wilt thou flee
<05127> (8800)
three
<07969>
months
<02320>
before
<06440>
thine enemies
<06862>_,
while they pursue
<07291> (8802)
thee? or that there be three
<07969>
days
<03117>_'
pestilence
<01698>
in thy land
<0776>_?
now advise
<03045> (8798)_,
and see
<07200> (8798)
what answer
<01697>
I shall return
<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 us fall
<05307> (8799)
now into the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
for his mercies
<07356>
[are] great
<07227>_:
and let me not fall
<05307> (8799)
into the hand
<03027>
of man
<0120>_.
{are great: or, are many}
So the LORD
<03068>
sent
<05414> (8799)
a pestilence
<01698>
upon Israel
<03478>
from the morning
<01242>
even to the time
<06256>
appointed
<04150>_:
and there died
<04191> (8799)
of the people
<05971>
from Dan
<01835>
even to Beersheba
<0884>
seventy
<07657>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>_.
And when the angel
<04397>
stretched out
<07971> (8799)
his hand
<03027>
upon Jerusalem
<03389>
to destroy
<07843> (8763)
it, the LORD
<03068>
repented
<05162> (8735)
him of the evil
<07451>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
to the angel
<04397>
that destroyed
<07843> (8688)
the people
<05971>_,
It is enough
<07227>_:
stay
<07503> (8685)
now thine hand
<03027>_.
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
was by the threshingplace
<01637>
of Araunah
<0728>
the Jebusite
<02983>_.
{Araunah: also called, Ornan}
And David
<01732>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>
when he saw
<07200> (8800)
the angel
<04397>
that smote
<05221> (8688)
the people
<05971>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Lo, I have sinned
<02398> (8804)_,
and I have done wickedly
<05753> (8689)_:
but these sheep
<06629>_,
what have they done
<06213> (8804)_?
let thine hand
<03027>_,
I pray thee, be against me, and against my father's
<01>
house
<01004>_.
And Gad
<01410>
came
<0935> (8799)
that day
<03117>
to David
<01732>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Go up
<05927> (8798)_,
rear
<06965> (8685)
an altar
<04196>
unto the LORD
<03068>
in the threshingfloor
<01637>
of Araunah
<0728>
the Jebusite
<02983>_.
{Araunah: Heb. Araniah}
And David
<01732>_,
according to the saying
<01697>
of Gad
<01410>_,
went up
<05927> (8799)
as the LORD
<03068>
commanded
<06680> (8765)_.
And Araunah
<0728>
looked
<08259> (8686)_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)
the king
<04428>
and his servants
<05650>
coming on
<05674> (8802)
toward him: and Araunah
<0728>
went out
<03318> (8799)_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself before the king
<04428>
on his face
<0639>
upon the ground
<0776>_.
And Araunah
<0728>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore is my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
come
<0935> (8804)
to his servant
<05650>_?
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
To buy
<07069> (8800)
the threshingfloor
<01637>
of thee, to build
<01129> (8800)
an altar
<04196>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
that the plague
<04046>
may be stayed
<06113> (8735)
from the people
<05971>_.
And Araunah
<0728>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto David
<01732>_,
Let my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
take
<03947> (8799)
and offer up
<05927> (8686)
what [seemeth] good
<02896>
unto him
<05869>_:
behold
<07200> (8798)_,
[here be] oxen
<01241>
for burnt sacrifice
<05930>_,
and threshing instruments
<04173>
and [other] instruments
<03627>
of the oxen
<01241>
for wood
<06086>_.
All these [things] did Araunah
<0728>_,
[as] a king
<04428>_,
give
<05414> (8804)
unto the king
<04428>_.
And Araunah
<0728>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
The LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
accept
<07521> (8799)
thee.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Araunah
<0728>_,
Nay; but I will surely
<07069> (8800)
buy
<07069> (8799)
[it] of thee at a price
<04242>_:
neither will I offer
<05927> (8686)
burnt offerings
<05930>
unto the LORD
<03068>
my God
<0430>
of that which doth cost me nothing
<02600>_.
So David
<01732>
bought
<07069> (8799)
the threshingfloor
<01637>
and the oxen
<01241>
for fifty
<02572>
shekels
<08255>
of silver
<03701>_.
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>_.
So the LORD
<03068>
was intreated
<06279> (8735)
for the land
<0776>_,
and the plague
<04046>
was stayed
<06113> (8735)
from Israel
<03478>_.
