2 Samuel Chapter 24
1David forceth Joab to number the people. 5The captains after nine months and twenty days deliver in the number to the king. 10David repenteth, and, being obliged to choose one plague out of three named to him, fixeth on three days' pestilence. 15After the death of seventy thousand in Israel, at David's humble suit the angel is stayed from destroying Jerusalem. 18By God's direction David purchaseth Araunah's threshingfloor; and having sacrificed there, the plague ceaseth.
