11 And David rose up in the morning; and the word of Jehovah came to Gad the prophet, David's seer, saying,
18 And the angel of Jehovah spoke to Gad, saying to David, Surely David shall go up to raise an altar to Jehovah in the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite. 19 And David went up by the word of Gad, that which he spoke in the name of Jehovah. 20 And Ornan turned back, and saw the angel; and his four sons with him hid themselves; and Ornan was threshing wheat. 21 And as David came to Ornan, Ornan looked and saw David, and went out of the threshing-floor and bowed down to David, with his face to the ground. 22 And David said to Ornan, Give me the site of the threshingfloor, and I will build an altar to Jehovah in it; for full silver give it to me, and the plague will be restrained from the people. 23 And Ornan said to David, Take it for yourself, and my lord the king do that which is good in his eyes; see, I have given the oxen for burnt offerings, and the threshing instruments for wood, and the wheat for the food offering; I give it all. 24 And king David said to Ornan, No, for I will surely buy it for full silver, for I will not lift up what is yours to Jehovah, so as to offer a burnt offering without cost. 25 And David gave to Ornan six hundred shekels of gold in weight for the place. 26 And David built an altar there to Jehovah, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called to Jehovah; and He answered him with fire from the heavens on the altar of the burnt offering. 27 And Jehovah commanded the angel, and he returned his sword to its sheath. 28 At that time, when David saw that Jehovah had answered him in the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite, then he sacrificed there. 29 And the tabernacle of Jehovah that Moses had made in the wilderness, and the altar of the burnt offering, were at that time in the high place in Gibeon; 30 and David was not able to go before it to seek God, for he was terrified from the face of the angel of Jehovah.
