 New English Bible 1 Chronicles:21Biblia Hebraica (Stuttgartensia) | BHS (pdf - 3.5mb)  

1 [vv1-27: cp 2Sam. 24.1-25] NOW SATAN, SETTING HIMSELF AGAINST ISRAEL, incited David to count the people. Battles against Philistine giants. 1Chr.21.1-22.1וַיַּעֲמֹד שָׂטָן עַל־יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיָּסֶת אֶת־דָּוִיד לִמְנֹות אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
2 So he instructed Joab and his public officers to go out and number Israel, from Beersheba to Dan, and to report the number to him.  וַיֹּאמֶר דָּוִיד אֶל־יֹואָב וְאֶל־שָׂרֵי הָעָם לְכוּ סִפְרוּ אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵל מִבְּאֵר שֶׁבַע וְעַד־דָּן וְהָבִיאוּ אֵלַי וְאֵדְעָה אֶת־מִסְפָּרָם׃
3 Joab answered, 'Even if the LORD should increase his people a hundredfold, would not your majesty still be king and all the people your slaves? Why should your majesty want to do this? It will only bring guilt on Israel.'  וַיֹּאמֶר יֹואָב יֹוסֵף יְהוָה עַל־עַמֹּו כָּהֵם מֵאָה פְעָמִים הֲלֹא אֲדֹנִי הַמֶּלֶךְ כֻּלָּם לַאדֹנִי לַעֲבָדִים לָמָּה יְבַקֵּשׁ זֹאת אֲדֹנִי לָמָּה יִהְיֶה לְאַשְׁמָה לְיִשְׂרָאֵל׃
4 But Joab was overruled by the king; he set out and went up and down the whole country.  וּדְבַר־הַמֶּלֶךְ חָזַק עַל־יֹואָב וַיֵּצֵא יֹואָב וַיִּתְהַלֵּךְ בְּכָל־יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיָּבֹא יְרוּשָׁלִָם׃
5 He then came to Jerusalem and reported to David the numbers recorded: those capable of bearing arms were one million one hundred thousand in Israel, and four hundred and seventy thousand in Judah.  וַיִּתֵּן יֹואָב אֶת־מִסְפַּר מִפְקַד־הָעָם אֶל־דָּוִיד וַיְהִי כָל־יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶלֶף אֲלָפִים וּמֵאָה אֶלֶף אִישׁ שֹׁלֵף חֶרֶב וִיהוּדָה אַרְבַּע מֵאֹות וְשִׁבְעִים אֶלֶף אִישׁ שֹׁלֵף חָרֶב׃
6 Levi and Benjamin were not counted by Joab, so deep was his repugnance against the king's order.

 וְלֵוִי וּבִנְיָמִן לֹא פָקַד בְּתֹוכָם כִּי־נִתְעַב דְּבַר־הַמֶּלֶךְ אֶת־יֹואָב׃
7 God was displeased with all this and proceeded to punish Israel.  וַיֵּרַע בְּעֵינֵי הָאֱלֹהִים עַל־הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה וַיַּךְ אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵל׃ ף
8 David said to God, 'I have done a very wicked thing: I pray thee remove thy servant's guilt, for I have been very foolish.'  וַיֹּאמֶר דָּוִיד אֶל־הָאֱלֹהִים חָטָאתִי מְאֹד אֲשֶׁר עָשִׂיתִי אֶת־הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה וְעַתָּה הַעֲבֶר־נָא אֶת־עֲוֹון עַבְדְּךָ כִּי נִסְכַּלְתִּי מְאֹד׃ ף
9 And the LORD said to Gad, David's seer,  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל־גָּד חֹזֵה דָוִיד לֵאמֹר׃
10 'Go and tell David, "This is the word of the LORD: I have three things to offer you; choose one of them and I will bring it upon you." '  לֵךְ וְדִבַּרְתָּ אֶל־דָּוִיד לֵאמֹר כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה שָׁלֹושׁ אֲנִי נֹטֶה עָלֶיךָ בְּחַר־לְךָ אַחַת מֵהֵנָּה וְאֶעֱשֶׂה־לָּךְ׃
11 So Gad came to David and said to him, 'This is the word of the LORD: "Make your choice:  וַיָּבֹא גָד אֶל־דָּוִיד וַיֹּאמֶר לֹו כֹּה־אָמַר יְהוָה קַבֶּל־לָךְ׃
12 three years of famine, three months of harrying by your foes and close pursuit by the sword of your enemy, or three days of the LORD's own sword, bringing pestilence throughout the country, and the LORD's angel working destruction in all the territory of Israel." Consider now what answer I am to take back to him who sent me.'  אִם־שָׁלֹושׁ שָׁנִים רָעָב וְאִם־שְׁלֹשָׁה חֳדָשִׁים נִסְפֶּה מִפְּנֵי־צָרֶיךָ וְחֶרֶב אֹויְבֶךָ לְמַשֶּׂגֶת וְאִם־שְׁלֹשֶׁת יָמִים חֶרֶב יְהוָה וְדֶבֶר בָּאָרֶץ וּמַלְאַךְ יְהוָה מַשְׁחִית בְּכָל־גְּבוּל יִשְׂרָאֵל וְעַתָּה רְאֵה מָה־אָשִׁיב אֶת־שֹׁלְחִי דָּבָר׃ ף
13 Thereupon David said to Gad, 'I am in a desperate plight; let me fall into the hands of the LORD, for his mercy is very great; and let me not fall into the hands of man.'  וַיֹּאמֶר דָּוִיד אֶל־גָּד צַר־לִי מְאֹד אֶפְּלָה־נָּא בְיַד־יְהוָה כִּי־רַבִּים רַחֲמָיו מְאֹד וּבְיַד־אָדָם אַל־אֶפֹּל׃
14 So the LORD sent a pestilence throughout Israel, and seventy thousand men of Israel died.  וַיִּתֵּן יְהוָה דֶּבֶר בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל וַיִּפֹּל מִיִּשְׂרָאֵל שִׁבְעִים אֶלֶף אִישׁ׃
15 And God sent an angel to Jerusalem to destroy it; but, as he was destroying it, the LORD saw and repented of the evil, and said to the destroying angel at the moment when he was standing beside the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite, 'Enough! Stay your hand.'

 וַיִּשְׁלַח הָאֱלֹהִים מַלְאָךְ לִירוּשָׁלִַם לְהַשְׁחִיתָהּ וּכְהַשְׁחִית רָאָה יְהוָה וַיִּנָּחֶם עַל־הָרָעָה וַיֹּאמֶר לַמַּלְאָךְ הַמַּשְׁחִית רַב עַתָּה הֶרֶף יָדֶךָ וּמַלְאַךְ יְהוָה עֹמֵד עִם־גֹּרֶן אָרְןָן הַיְבוּסִי׃ ס
16 When David looked up and saw the angel of the LORD standing between earth and heaven, with his sword drawn in his hand and stretched out over Jerusalem, he and the elders, clothed in sackcloth, fell prostrate to the ground;  וַיִּשָּׂא דָוִיד אֶת־עֵינָיו וַיַּרְא אֶת־מַלְאַךְ יְהוָה עֹמֵד בֵּין הָאָרֶץ וּבֵין הַשָּׁמַיִם וְחַרְבֹּו שְׁלוּפָה בְּיָדֹו נְטוּיָה עַל־יְרוּשָׁלִָם וַיִּפֹּל דָּוִיד וְהַזְּקֵנִים מְכֻסִּים בַּשַּׂקִּים עַל־פְּנֵיהֶם׃
17 and David said to God, 'It was I who gave the order to count the people. It was I who sinned, I, the shepherd [the shepherd: prob. rdg, Heb doing wrong], who did wrong. But these poor sheep, what have they done? O LORD my God, let thy hand fall upon me and upon my family, but check this plague on the people [check ... people: prob. rdg, Heb among thy people, not for a plague].'

 וַיֹּאמֶר דָּוִיד אֶל־הָאֱלֹהִים הֲלֹא אֲנִי אָמַרְתִּי לִמְנֹות בָּעָם וַאֲנִי־הוּא אֲשֶׁר־חָטָאתִי וְהָרֵעַ הֲרֵעֹותִי וְאֵלֶּה הַצֹּאן מֶה עָשׂוּ יְהוָה אֱלֹהַי תְּהִי נָא יָדְךָ בִּי וּבְבֵית אָבִי וּבְעַמְּךָ לֹא לְמַגֵּפָה׃ ס
18 The angel of the LORD, speaking through the lips of Gad, commanded David to go to the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite and to set up there an altar to the LORD.  וּמַלְאַךְ יְהוָה אָמַר אֶל־גָּד לֵאמֹר לְדָוִיד כִּי יַעֲלֶה דָוִיד לְהָקִים מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהוָה בְּגֹרֶן אָרְןָן הַיְבֻסִי׃
19 David went up as Gad had bidden him in the LORD's name. Ornan's four sons who were with him hid themselves,  וַיַּעַל דָּוִיד בִּדְבַר־גָּד אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה׃
20 but he was busy threshing his wheat when he turned and saw the angel.  וַיָּשָׁב אָרְןָן וַיַּרְא אֶת־הַמַּלְאָךְ וְאַרְבַּעַת בָּנָיו עִמֹּו מִתְחַבְּאִים וְאָרְןָן דָּשׁ חִטִּים׃
21 As David approached, Ornan looked up and, seeing the king, came out from the threshing-floor and prostrated himself before him.  וַיָּבֹא דָוִיד עַד־אָרְןָן וַיַּבֵּט אָרְןָן וַיַּרְא אֶת־דָּוִיד וַיֵּצֵא מִן־הַגֹּרֶן וַיִּשְׁתַּחוּ לְדָוִיד אַפַּיִם אָרְצָה׃
22 David said to Ornan, 'Let me have the site of the threshing-floor that I may build on it an altar to the LORD; sell it me at the full price, that the plague which has attacked my people may be stopped.'  וַיֹּאמֶר דָּוִיד אֶל־אָרְןָן תְּנָה־לִּי מְקֹום הַגֹּרֶן וְאֶבְנֶה־בֹּו מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהוָה בְּכֶסֶף מָלֵא תְּנֵהוּ לִי וְתֵעָצַר הַמַּגֵּפָה מֵעַל הָעָם׃
23 Ornan answered David, 'Take it and let your majesty do as he thinks fit; see, here are the oxen for whole-offerings, the threshing-sledges for the fuel, and the wheat for the grain-offering; I give you everything.'  וַיֹּאמֶר אָרְןָן אֶל־דָּוִיד קַח־לָךְ וְיַעַשׂ אֲדֹנִי הַמֶּלֶךְ הַטֹּוב בְּעֵינָיו רְאֵה נָתַתִּי הַבָּקָר לָעֹלֹות וְהַמֹּורִגִּים לָעֵצִים וְהַחִטִּים לַמִּנְחָה הַכֹּל נָתָתִּי׃
24 But King David said to Ornan, 'No, I will pay the full price; I will not present to the LORD what is yours, or offer a whole-offering which has cost me nothing.'  וַיֹּאמֶר הַמֶּלֶךְ דָּוִיד לְאָרְןָן לֹא כִּי־קָנֹה אֶקְנֶה בְּכֶסֶף מָלֵא כִּי לֹא־אֶשָּׂא אֲשֶׁר־לְךָ לַיהוָה וְהַעֲלֹות עֹולָה חִנָּם׃
25 So David gave Ornan six hundred shekels of gold for the site,  וַיִּתֵּן דָּוִיד לְאָרְןָן בַּמָּקֹום שִׁקְלֵי זָהָב מִשְׁקָל שֵׁשׁ מֵאֹות׃
26 and built an altar to the LORD there; on this he offered whole-offerings and shared-offerings, and called upon the LORD, who answered him with fire falling from heaven on the altar of whole-offering.  וַיִּבֶן שָׁם דָּוִיד מִזְבֵּחַ לַיהוָה וַיַּעַל עֹלֹות וּשְׁלָמִים וַיִּקְרָא אֶל־יְהוָה וַיַּעֲנֵהוּ בָאֵשׁ מִן־הַשָּׁמַיִם עַל מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה׃ ף
27 Then, at the LORD's command, the angel sheathed his sword.

 וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה לַמַּלְאָךְ וַיָּשֶׁב חַרְבֹּו אֶל־נְדָנָהּ׃
28 It was when David saw that the LORD had answered him at the threshing-floor of Ornan the Jebusite that he offered sacrifice there.  בָּעֵת הַהִיא בִּרְאֹות דָּוִיד כִּי־עָנָהוּ יְהוָה בְּגֹרֶן אָרְןָן הַיְבוּסִי וַיִּזְבַּח שָׁם׃
29 The tabernacle of the LORD and the altar of whole-offering which Moses had made in the wilderness were then at the hill-shrine in Gibeon;  וּמִשְׁכַּן יְהוָה אֲשֶׁר־עָשָׂה מֹשֶׁה בַמִּדְבָּר וּמִזְבַּח הָעֹולָה בָּעֵת הַהִיא בַּבָּמָה בְּגִבְעֹון׃
30 but David had been unable to go there and seek God's guidance, so shocked and shaken was he at the sight of the angel's sword.  וְלֹא־יָכֹל דָּוִיד לָלֶכֶת לְפָנָיו לִדְרֹשׁ אֱלֹהִים כִּי נִבְעַת מִפְּנֵי חֶרֶב מַלְאַךְ יְהוָה׃ ס
