1 Chronicles 21

  1 H7854 And Satan H5975 [H8799] stood up H3478 against Israel, H5496 [H8686] and tempted H1732 David H4487 [H8800] to number H3478 Israel.
  2 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H3097 to Joab H8269 and to the rulers H5971 of the people, H3212 [H8798] Go, H5608 [H8798] number H3478 Israel H884 from Beersheba H1835 even to Dan; H935 [H8685] and bring H4557 the number H3045 [H8799] of them to me, that I may know it.
  3 H3097 And Joab H559 [H8799] answered, H3068 The LORD H5971 make his people H3967 an hundred H6471 times H3254 [H8686] more H1992 than they H113 are: but, my lord H4428 the king, H113 are they not all my lord's H5650 servants? H113 why then doth my lord H1245 [H8762] require H819 this thing? why will he be a cause of trespass H3478 to Israel?
  4 H4428 Nevertheless the king's H1697 word H2388 [H8804] prevailed H3097 against Joab. H3097 Therefore Joab H3318 [H8799] departed, H1980 [H8691] and went H3478 throughout all Israel, H935 [H8799] and came H3389 to Jerusalem.
  5 H3097 And Joab H5414 [H8799] gave H4557 the sum H4662 of the number H5971 of the people H1732 to David. H3478 And all they of Israel H505 were a million H3967 and an hundred H505 thousand H376 men H8025 [H8802] that drew H2719 sword: H3063 and Judah H702 was four H3967 hundred H7657 and seventy H505 thousand H376 men H8025 [H8802] that drew H2719 sword.
  6 H3878 But Levi H1144 and Benjamin H6485 [H8804] he counted H8432 not among H4428 them: for the king's H1697 word H8581 [H8738] was abominable H3097 to Joab.
  7 H430 And God H3415 H5869 [H8799] was displeased H1697 with this thing; H5221 [H8686] therefore he smote H3478 Israel.
  8 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H430 to God, H2398 [H8804] I have sinned H3966 greatly, H6213 [H8804] because I have done H1697 this thing: H5674 [H8685] but now, I beseech thee, do away H5771 the perversity H5650 of thy servant; H3966 for I have done very H5528 [H8738] foolishly.
  9 H3068 And the LORD H1696 [H8762] spoke H1410 to Gad, H1732 David's H2374 seer, H559 [H8800] saying,
  10 H3212 [H8798] Go H1696 [H8765] and tell H1732 David, H559 [H8800] saying, H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H5186 [H8802] I offer H7969 thee three H977 [H8798] things: choose H259 thee one H2007 of them, H6213 [H8799] that I may do it to thee.
  11 H1410 So Gad H935 [H8799] came H1732 to David, H559 [H8799] and said H559 [H8804] to him, Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H6901 [H8761] Choose thee
  12 H7969 Either three H8141 years' H7458 famine; H7969 or three H2320 months H5595 [H8737] to be swept away H6440 before H6862 thy foes, H2719 while the sword H341 [H8802] of thy enemies H5381 [H8688] overtaketh H518 thee; or H7969 else three H3117 days H2719 the sword H3068 of the LORD, H1698 even the pestilence, H776 in the land, H4397 and the messenger H3068 of the LORD H7843 [H8688] decaying H1366 throughout all the land H3478 of Israel. H7200 [H8798] Now therefore consider H1697 thyself what word H7725 [H8686] I shall bring again H7971 [H8802] to him that sent me.
  13 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H1410 to Gad, H3966 I am in a great H6887 [H8804] strait: H5307 [H8799] let me fall H3027 now into the hand H3068 of the LORD; H3966 for very H7227 great H7356 are his compassions: H5307 [H8799] but let me not fall H3027 into the hand H120 of man.
  14 H3068 So the LORD H5414 [H8799] sent H1698 pestilence H3478 upon Israel: H5307 [H8799] and there fell H3478 of Israel H7657 seventy H505 thousand H376 men.
  15 H430 And God H7971 [H8799] sent H4397 a messenger H3389 to Jerusalem H7843 [H8687] to decay H7843 [H8687] it: and as he was decaying, H3068 the LORD H7200 [H8804] beheld, H5162 [H8735] and he sighed H7451 of the evil, H559 [H8799] and said H4397 to the messenger H7843 [H8688] that decayed, H7227 It is enough, H7503 [H8685] stay H3027 now thy hand. H4397 And the messenger H3068 of the LORD H5975 [H8802] stood H1637 by the threshingfloor H771 of Ornan H2983 the Jebusite.
  16 H1732 And David H5375 [H8799] lifted up H5869 his eyes, H7200 [H8799] and saw H4397 the messenger H3068 of the LORD H5975 [H8802] stand H776 between the earth H8064 and the heaven, H8025 [H8803] having a drawn H2719 sword H3027 in his hand H5186 [H8803] stretched out H3389 over Jerusalem. H1732 Then David H2205 and the elders H3680 [H8794] of Israel, who were clothed H8242 in sackcloth, H5307 [H8799] fell H6440 upon their faces.
  17 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] said H430 to God, H559 [H8804] Is it not I that commanded H5971 the people H4487 [H8800] to be numbered? H2398 [H8804] even I it is that have sinned H7489 [H8689] and done evil H7489 [H8687] indeed; H6629 but as for these sheep, H6213 [H8804] what have they done? H3027 let thy hand, H3068 I pray thee, O LORD H430 my God, H1 be on me, and on my father's H1004 house; H5971 but not on thy people, H4046 that they should be afflicted.
  18 H4397 Then the messenger H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8804] commanded H1410 Gad H559 [H8800] to say H1732 to David, H1732 that David H5927 [H8799] should go up, H6965 [H8687] and build H4196 an altar H3068 to the LORD H1637 in the threshingfloor H771 of Ornan H2983 the Jebusite.
  19 H1732 And David H5927 [H8799] went up H1697 at the saying H1410 of Gad, H1696 [H8765] which he spoke H8034 in the name H3068 of the LORD.
  20 H771 And Ornan H7725 [H8799] turned back, H7200 [H8799] and saw H4397 the messenger; H702 and his four H1121 sons H2244 [H8693] with him hid H771 themselves. Now Ornan H1758 [H8804] was threshing H2406 wheat.
  21 H1732 And as David H935 [H8799] came H771 to Ornan, H771 Ornan H5027 [H8686] looked H7200 [H8799] and saw H1732 David, H3318 [H8799] and went out H1637 of the threshingfloor, H7812 [H8691] and bowed H1732 himself to David H639 with his face H776 to the earth.
  22 H1732 Then David H559 [H8799] said H771 to Ornan, H5414 [H8798] Grant H4725 me the place H1637 of this threshingfloor, H1129 [H8799] that I may build H4196 an altar H3068 in it to the LORD: H5414 [H8798] thou shalt grant H4392 it to me for the full H3701 price: H4046 that the plague H6113 [H8735] may be restrained H5971 from the people.
  23 H771 And Ornan H559 [H8799] said H1732 to David, H3947 [H8798] Take H113 it to thee, and let my lord H4428 the king H6213 [H8799] do H2896 that which is good H5869 in his eyes: H7200 [H8798] lo, H5414 [H8804] I give H1241 thee the oxen H5930 also for burnt offerings, H4173 and the threshing instruments H6086 for wood, H2406 and the wheat H4503 for the meat offering; H5414 [H8804] I give it all.
  24 H4428 And king H1732 David H559 [H8799] said H771 to Ornan, H7069 [H8800] Nay; but I will verily H7069 [H8799] buy H4392 it for the full H3701 price: H5375 [H8799] for I will not take H3068 that which is thine for the LORD, H5927 [H8687] nor offer H5930 burnt offerings H2600 without cost.
  25 H1732 So David H5414 [H8799] gave H771 to Ornan H4725 for the place H8337 six H3967 hundred H8255 shekels H2091 of gold H4948 by weight.
  26 H1732 And David H1129 [H8799] built H4196 there an altar H3068 to the LORD, H5927 [H8686] and offered H5930 burnt offerings H8002 and peace offerings, H7121 [H8799] and called H3068 upon the LORD; H6030 [H8799] and he answered H8064 him from heaven H784 by fire H4196 upon the altar H5930 of burnt offering.
  27 H3068 And the LORD H559 [H8799] commanded H4397 the messenger; H7725 0 and he put up H2719 his sword H7725 [H8686] again H5084 into its sheath.
  28 H6256 At that time H1732 when David H7200 [H8800] saw H3068 that the LORD H6030 [H8804] had answered H1637 him in the threshingfloor H771 of Ornan H2983 the Jebusite, H2076 [H8799] then he sacrificed there.
  29 H4908 For the tabernacle H3068 of the LORD, H4872 which Moses H6213 [H8804] made H4057 in the wilderness, H4196 and the altar H5930 of the burnt offering, H6256 were at that time H1116 in the high place H1391 at Gibeon.
  30 H1732 But David H3201 [H8804] could H3212 [H8800] not go H6440 before H1875 [H8800] it to enquire H430 of God: H1204 [H8738] for he was afraid H6440 because H2719 of the sword H4397 of the messenger H3068 of the LORD.
