1 Chronicles Chapter 21
1David tempted by Satan forceth Joab to number Israel. 7God is displeased: David acknowledgeth his fault. 9Gad being sent from God to propose one out of three plagues to his choice, he chooseth three days' pestilence. 14Seventy thousand in Israel being already cut off, the destroying angel is stayed over Jerusalem: 16David on sight of the angel humbly intercedeth for the people. 18By Gad's direction having bought Ornan's threshingfloor, he buildeth an altar, and sacrificeth: God signifieth his favour by fire from heaven, and stayeth the plague.
